Had this at the Coors Brewery. Just like any other Coors or Coors Light. Light yellow color, some white head. Watery and hardly any taste.

When this beer was poured into my glass, it poured a large off-white head with fine-small sized bubbles that was long lasting. The body was cloudy and carbonation was observed. The hue of this beer was pale yellow and the nose was cruity and citrusy. There was good lacing on the sides of my glass with this beer. The flavor was mild and it lacked character. The mouthfeel was smooth, thin and watery.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2007 Very complex flavor with flowers, citrus, spice. Good head, smooth drinking. A great beer to bring fishing as nobody else that has one taste will drink my beer...meaning I am drinking cold beer long after everybody else ran out. An excellent beer as a change of pace in a bar.

This brew poured a large head of creamy fine white bubbles that left a fair lacing and a hazy softly carbonatedorange brown body. It had very little aroma if any. What I got was a slight malt aroma if anything. Its flavor was yeasty bready and mildy smooth.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2003
Color is a cloudy, pale golden yellow with lots of white foamy head about two fingers high. Smells alot like most belgiums, very lemony, citrusy orange, yeasty, with some spices. Taste is good, pretty straight up citrusy lemon and orange, a bit of spicyness and honey. The hop presence is speratic and light, noticeable in some sips, none existant in others. Feel is light and smooth with an overall gritty pulp grain feel with a citrusy tang. Its a pretty decent offering for an Americanized belgian.

Trappist (284) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 14, 2003
This was a very good wheat beer. And the spices were detected and nice. I could not believe Coors of all people made this one! Rich and mellow, with a slightly thin body and orange coloration.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 14, 2003
On tap, hazy orange color. Fairly sweet, a bit of spice and celery flavor, mostly one-dimensional. Thin body. Not bad, lacks a bit of spice and could be a little less sweet. Could you believe Coors is responsible for a decent beer?

egajdzis (5456) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2003
Poured cloudy golden yellow. Citrusy aroma with no head at all or lacing taboot. It has characters of a witbeer, but it also very watered down. OK for an American macro brewery.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 12, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2003 Hazy golden body. Sweet, orange,cream aroma. Not much head. Smooth, but a bit watery. One of the better products from an American Macro- Brewery.

A very nice, citrusy ale. SOme like it with an orange wedge, though I like the taste as-is. Quite smooth and enjoyable, this is one you might have to consciously limit yourself to, as it goes down easy and leaves you wanting more.
