Better than I would expect from Coors, but that is not saying much. Pretty average with a cloying skunkiness at first. Mellows slightly as it breaths. Some nice spiciness.

BarePaw (148) - Pullman, Washington, USA - APR 26, 2003
This is exactly what you would expect from Coors. It is weak. It has hardly any aroma, and the flavor is very weak. In fact, it tastes remarkably like regular Coors.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2003
Not a great example of a Belgian White. Head dissapears quickly and tastes a little thin for a wheat. Not a heck of alot of flavor to it either, but it washes down pizza rather well.

ericnixon (740) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 13, 2003
kind of a wheaty taste with som good hoppy taste. it was "eh" on the low end of the "eh" scale. perhaps almost borderline "crappy". almost like it was made by some crappy brewer...oh wait, it was.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - APR 6, 2003
Lacked wheat. Lacked yeast. Taste: a very bare hint of wheat with plenty of warming spice. Slight hoppy aftertaste. Little aroma outside of some corriander and orange and lemon peel. Not duly impressed by this one.

cornhusker01 (76) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 1, 2003
This was comparable to the Chimay Rouge. It had a good amberish color and had the hint of fruit. It wasn't too bitter. A good beer.

Superstar (45) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2003
Hazy golden color with minimal head. Somewhat fruity aroma. Initially kind of sweet but not overwhelmingly so. Pretty flat, but fairly enjoyable overall.

AlabastorJones (805) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 24, 2003
It has a rusty and mirky appearance. The aroma isn't very strong but it has a nice apple cider thang goin on. Just a little white head around the edges. It has a good initial taste, a little bitter, somewhat crispy, but the finish is pretty weak, the flavor just seems to evaporate after every swallow. The palate is very light and smooth. It's not that this beer tastes bad, just that it doesn't really taste good.

Very tasty beer, I liked the color but not much in the aftertaste, actually my wife told me that she felt funny in her stomach after drinking it.

3fourths (8229) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 22, 2003
Smooth taste, but a little too bland for a wit. Smells of mild coriander, and tastes basically like a mid-of-the-road pilsner with a little wheaty feel.
