Crisp belgium white, but less full than most smaller brewers. Smooth and easy to drink.

This goes to show that a large brewer can make a good beer. It’s not really a great example of the style, but it’s got a lot of flavor and sweetness, good color, easy to drink, and maybe it’ll show people the light, in terms of real beer drinking and how enjoyable it can be.

Rerate 12/30/02: I have to say this is still a decent beer, and the orange slice is always nice to eat. It is also nice to see people in a bar drinking this more and more instead of BudMillerCoors. It is a good introductory beer into something different for your macro pals. However, it is still a pretty weak attempt at a Wit. 12/30/01 (4.0): Wow! Silky smooth flavor and a great aroma and aftertaste.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2004 I've never had this mass-marketed Wit before, but it seemed interesting there as a single in the liquor store in East Lansing, MI (MSU being one of my many alma maters). The aroma is fairly authentic, although it is a bit dark in the glass. Flavors wimps out a bit, but hey, if it gets people thinking about beer in a different way, that's a good thing.

Subtle spiciness and orange peel/coriander present. Too watery--a bigger body and more spice would improve this beer a lot, however, I enjoy drinking it and Coors makes it for the masses. Not terrible by any means.

When this flavorful, amazingly non-filling beverage is consumed with a fresh orange slice; it very much quenches the thirst. More of a warm weather favorite this beer is gaining more and more attention with the female element that typically will only drink the thin fizzy mass-produced swills. An excellent pour and no overbearing qualities make this a keeper

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2002
Pours a cloudy, pale golden color with a small white head. The head disappears quickly and no lacing is left on the glass. Mild spicy aroma with hints of orange and maybe coriander. Medium body and carbonation, the flavor is initially spicy with a smooth finish and lingering spice and malt flavors. Strange aftertaste that makes me think of what Budweiser would taste like if thay brewed it with some spices.

Hazy gold, with a fast fading white head.Both nose and palate leave something to be desired. A very overrated beer
