I could see how this beer is one of the best macros on the site. I drank it while on the slopes of heavenly in lake tahoe CA. It was very refreshing...very clean....nothing special or worthy of shipping overseas but props to coors for making a not shitty tasting beer.

Good Belgian White, with thorough flavor, little aftertaste. Smooth clean texture.

I can't believe it took me so long to try this beer. It was like a poor man's Bell's Oberon. I'm not a wheat guy, but the spices were complimented nicely in it's sweetness... Certainly the best beer that Coors makes. Great for a macrobrew. Good job Colorado!

Hazy/cloudy golden color with specks of white hanging in suspension. Sweet orange and vanilla aroma. Thick feel, almost syrupy. Butter and pepper flavor along with sweet malt. Dry caulky finish.

The bartenderesse who served me this one asked if I wanted an orance slice with it. An orange slice? I really didn't want to ask why, so I just said no. It was a deal at $2.00 a bottle, a good introduction for those ignorant of such wheaty-type beers, but not a valid "Wheat Beer".

Not a very good representative for belgian whites at all. Pretty weak taste, to be honest.

Nothing to special here. Smelled ok, tasted ok. Wheat was very present, and almost to much for me. Probably won't be having this again.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2003 re-rate. Poured a cloudy golden color. Mild malty/citrusy aroma with even milder flavor. very smooth and light. Easy to drink. Had little body too it

Yellow-tan with a slight haze. Medium body with mild bitterness. Tropical fruit aromas. This seems to have significant amounts of orange fruit flavoring. Clean finish with mild floral hop notes. Refreshing and pretty good for a Coors product.
