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.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2003
Pleasant Belgian White. Foggy orangish color with a mixture of wheat and citrus in the aroma. Mild easy drinking taste of citrus, wheat, and light hops. Left a delightful aftertaste. I was shocked to discover Coors was capable of making such a product.

CapFlu (4687) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 3, 2003
(Bottle) Light golden, medium slightly dissipating head. Light yeast, cask whiskey nose. Very floral and spicy - mild alcohol flavour. Finishes with oh-so mild burn. Nice

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2003
Pleasant enough if somewhat lacking in character. Attempt at a Belgian Ale. Wheaty and yeasty. Have a Hennepin instead. <<Just found out on this website that the beer is made by Coors. OK ... probably best micro beer I have found from a macro brewer of garbage ...>>

<font size=+1>Drinking Conditions: Pint glass, yeast not poured, 40°F temp.</font><HR> Pours misty orange with little to no head, lacing was non existent. Aroma is very much of a German wheat beer. Classic malt smell with undertones of clove and banana. Flavor is initially sour and cloying with a small effervescence of citrus hops but then the aftertaste kicks in and destroys all flavors with an unappealing dirty musky finish. The mouth feel is over carbonated, sour and bitter, makes me want to spit it out. Overall it has good aroma, but that's about it, now I know why they put an orange in it at the bar.

DrinkingbuddyD (129) - Warsaw, New York, USA - JUN 25, 2003
golden color with very shot lived white head. Slightly fruity flavor. mild bitterness and a sweet aftertaste. A mediocre example of a belgian white. I am very suprised that this is brewed by coors.

Cashazza (217) - Morganville, Maryland, USA - JUN 25, 2003
Head quickly fizzled out, zero lacing effect, cloudy orange/peach, very thin. The fact that it is made by Coors taken into account, it is a better beer than expected, yet I'm still not a fan of this style -- it's Okay, but nothing impressive in the least.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2004 A great tasting beer over all. What really got me was its smooth after taste. Although it is made by coors it is a good beer. I’ve had much better american made belgian whites but this wasn’t bad. A definate drink over any american macrobrew.
