Very smooth, but really lacking in flavor. Cloudy appearance. Very similar to Sam Adams summer ale. I wasnít surprised to learn it was a Coors beer.

Extremely sweet aroma. I wanna say apricot, but that might be because of the cloudy orange color. Itís still apricot after the first sip. Itís got that fall spiced fruit feel if you can imagine that. Unique.

Not a bad attempt for a big corporate brewer. Style is basically the same as Hoegaarden White. A nice cloudy, wheaty brew with a slightly perfumey aroma. Some elements of spice and citrus. I would still prefer the Hoegaarden but for a bit american corporate brew itís amazing they did so well.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2005 Rerate Been awhile since I had one, have not missed much. Very muddled in all aspects. Still a better bet than a Bud Light, but not a true Wit. Missing the spiciness and zing. Original 3.6 Very cloudy appearance - very wheaty - lives up to its type - unlike some other macro-micro wheats found nowadays. Tangy, a good compliment to Mexican food.

Very good appearance in a tall glass, but alittle on the weak side when it comes to taste---Cellis is better. Moonie had a little of that "big beer company" after taste---preservatives added?

Attractive, rather appropriate wit appearance, cloudy, good coloration. Head disappates instantly. Oh, you say this is contract brewed by Coors? A bit of a plastic odor, but also a fair amount of corriander and lemon zest. Has a refreshing, sour yeastiness to it, and a good spice tang. I prefer wits to be more assertive, and this one falls into that range. Impressive qualtiy considering the psudo-macro scale at which this is probably produced.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2003 I was a little worried when I ordered this - I knew it was a coors product. Much to my surprise, this was nicely spiced, smooth, fruity/citrusy. My only complaint would be that it was a little too thin on the palate. A nice choice when a real belgian isn't available.

Yuck. I know Hoegaarden and Blue Moon (read Coors) Youíre NO Hoegaarden. I bought a sixer of this, drank about half a glass of the one bottle and took the other five back to the packie. :P
