Pours a hazy orange/yellow color. Lots of sediment floating around. Aroma is sweet and slightly yeasty. Some orange peel aroma as well. Taste is somewhat sweet and grainy. Some fruitiness as well. Enjoyable.

Bottle. Very hazy gold with some yeast bits settling to the bottom. Decent frothy white head. Aromas of citrus, banana, yeast, and some pepper. Very refreshing. Yummy coriander and spicy yeast flavors with a sweet wheat malt flavor from beginning to end. Is it Hoegaarden? Not Quite. Is it a very tasty, light bodied, refreshing BELGIAN style beer made by one of the so called big three evil brewers? Yes! Give props to Coors for making a style of beer the other big two wouldn’t touch, making it inexpensive, and making it availiable everywhere and with decent quality.

Draft - big citrusy, malty aroma. This is the best feature of the beer. I wanted to sit and smell, but felt obligated to drink it. Cloudy yellow to orange. Minimal white head. Flavor matches the aroma - sweet. Medium mouthfeel.

This is a cloudy brew from the Coors brewing Co. Although it seem’s they wouldn’t want you to know that. Afine craft brew that could use more attention simalar to a Hefe. pours up cloudy do to the unfitered yeast great with an orange wedge. and a steak or maybe on a nice summer afternoon on the pourch just relaxing.

Pours a cloudy, gold. Very small head that doesn’t last long at all. Not too much taste to talk about, but not a bad beer either. I could definitely drink a few of these though. Not bad at all.

Some nice flavour present, just not enough of it to satisfy. It is a good thirst quencher, but not an overly impressive beer. Nice cloudy pour.

It’s cloudy, has a distinct citrus flavor. The flavor is a little watery, but it’s not awful.

Nice cloudy beer. Good orange/coriander flavors without overpowering the taste. I like it. Is it true to Belgian Wit, most likely a little light on everything for that, but a good beer nonetheless.
