A good summer beer when there is no corona about. A little too light for me to drink regularly.

I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. I had it on tap after 16 hours of traveling, so maybe any beer would have tasted good after all of that. It had a spicy aroma and the color was a golden cloudy color with minimal white head. The flavor was decent with some citrus and spice. Not too bad overall.

I like this beer in moderation in the summertime. Its cheap and it holds up moderately to other wheats on tap in the area (Penn Weizen, Hoegaarden, Brooklyner Weisse, etc) but definitly not the best. Cloudy off-orange appearance. Citrusy and hoppy floral notes on the nose masked by cheapness of Coors. Its a bit sweet and hard to down more than a few of these in one sitting. Why do they put fruit in beer? I took the orange slice out that was floating in my beer.

Slightly cloudy, amber color with small white head. A bit thin, fair spice flavor but not too exciting.

Hints of orange, sweet spices. Decent summer brew. Grew tired of the flavor; its definitely a once-in-a-while kind of beer.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 31, 2005
Pale hazed golden, fizzy white head. Lightly spiced corriander-like nose with softer tones of citrus, wheat, and wet white bread. Flavor was up front orange and lemon zest, sweet spices, and dried wheat, with a touch of hop bitterness to round it out. Light to medium bodied, light carbonation, spiced, wheaty, juicy citrus finish. A good summertime crossover brew for the newbie beer geek...

Not bad for a mass produced beer from Coors Brewing Co. The aroma had a bit of a tea thing going on. This one pours a cloudy gold color.
