2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer clearly has its fans -- just take a look at some of the reviews here -- but I don't get it. Pours a dark golden yellow which isn't unappealing by itself, but doesn't seem to suit the style (which is presumably a Belgian Wit, which is presumably lighter.) The head vanishes very quickly. Nose of cooked grain, a little citrus, a little corn/fritos, maybe a touch of spice but that's stretching it -- really not much more than say a Yuengling with some lemon juice in it.
Mouthfeel is odd, rather thick and gummy to my taste. Not much by way of flavor, does have a sharp finish that isn't unpleasant but I can't taste much of anything in the beer itself, certainly nothing I'd normally associate with a Belgian White.
Best described as a Belgian Wit made by a company that never actually tried one -- just read a little bit about them in other books. Like if the Cold War was going on and Romania tried to brew one, based soley on reputation and what they could discover in libraries. It's kiinndda in the style, but it's a really bad stab at it.

From a 355ml bottle on 25/1/2015. Pours a cloudy pale golden with a medium white head which disappears quickly. Has a pleasant light spicy, wheaty nose with some doughy yeast in the mix. The flavour is refreshing with lots of orange, a hint of banana, and more light spices, including coriander. Has a fullish body and average carbonation. I have no doubt this gets punished a bit on here ratings wise simply because it made by Coors, but this is actually a rather good Belgian wit, which is a style not that many brewers manage to nail. Nice work.

Bottle pour hazy gold. Nose slightly sour wheat, hint of spice. Taste watered down throughout but if I think about it, maybe some spice and grainy malt after the initial sweet. Not all that bad for a macrobrew, but certainly not great for style.

Little to zero aroma. Tastes like diluted wheat beer. Terrible but for a buck per bottle not too bad.

Blonde/blanche pale et trouble. Beau col de mousse blanche crémeuse qui ne tient pas longtemps. Nez de miel et d’agrumes : orange, citron. Bouche sucrée sur le miel, la coriandre et l’orange . Faible amertume, corps interessant pour le style. Très bonne bière blanche !

cloudy and straw colored, nice hints of citrus, very easy drinking, ideal for summertime on those hot days.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours golden with a thick white head. Aroma is of wheat and citrus. Taste is of wheat and barley. It’s a little bland with a bit of grain on the back end. Not much of a fruity taste as I expected. I’m surprised it’s 5.4%.
