A mass marked version of the style, not near the complexity of Hoegaarden, Celis, or Upland. Cloudy pale yellow with a little head, no lace, thin-bodied. Some citrus and spice hints on the nose. Sweeter than most witbiers, smooth. A coy bread-like taste lingers on the palate.

OK. Mild but not too washed out. A little malt sweetness and little decernible hopps. Nice white head and smooth. not much else here though

Kodos (200) - USA - MAY 14, 2003
Pours light gold in color. No real head and what there is dissipates immediately. No lacing to speak of. Malt and citrus hop nose. Flavor is slightly sweet, with a hint of acidity and some funky plasticness... Body is watery and suprisingly hollow. Finishes slightly acidy although leaving no real impression at all. Disappointing....

burgerlicious (308) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 12, 2003
about as good an impression of a belgian beer as could be expected from coors... not too bad, though it's not so stellar on the tongue.

Great, cold, smooth brew. Had this while enjoying the view on the Ohio River in Kentucky. Heck, the view made the beer taste even better. Exceptionally smooth, and goes down the same way, cold and nice.

DrunkCaleb (69) - Michigan, USA - MAY 8, 2003
On tap... limited mouthfeel, pale golden color, aroma of wheat and vanilla, smooth taste of malt with a hint of sweetness. Not as good as Oberon but damn good.

desurfer (1219) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2003
Very cloudy orange body, creamy white medium-sized head. Mild malty aroma. Light taste, somewhat spicy and sweet. Thin mouthfeel. Overall a pretty good beer, especially coming from Coors. I'm impressed.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - MAY 5, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2004 Hazy yellow orange color, not much head with a mild peach aroma. Light bodied with a creamy mouthfeel, slightly sweet and citrusy with a hint of toffee and hoppiness at the end.

Light amber color. Large head. Aroma is malty and a touch spicy. A medium bodied white. Malts are sweet. Hops are a touch spicy. Smooth taste. Mild flavors. Not what I think of when drinking a Belgian White, but tasty enough. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Nice and creamy. It has a creamy aftertate too. One of the best aftertastes I have seen on any beer. They claim this is from coors, but it's too good to really be coors, I think they are importing it.
