Nice golden unfiltered look. Not much head. Nice flavor of blueberry and citrus with a touch of wheatiness. Extremely smooth and drinkable however a bit one-dimensional. No bitterness at all. A good beer to get slammed on, however it is disapointing to sip on and enjoy.

Sincere (145) - wichita, Kansas, USA - JAN 19, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2006 12 oz. bottle poured a thick white head that collapsed quickly, leaving no lacing after a few drinks. The smell seemed earthy if anything; I couldn’t pick up much for aroma. The taste is almost non-descript as well, almost like a pale lager with less carbonation. It doesn’t taste bad by any means, but can’t really say a beer that tastes like nothing is great, but I can say it’s drinkable.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2008 A favorite around these parts. Wheaty/sweet taste, aroma of wheaty berries, lingering white head. Great with a slice of orange as garnish.

About what I imagine a pint glass full of cat urine would taste like. This seems to be a popular beer in Wisconsin, but then again, people in Wisconsin will swill anything as long as it’s got alcohol.

Very interesting taste (but that may be because I general like anything of this style). Smells of blueberry waffles. Tastes wheaty with hints of berries. Slightly sweet taste as well

nolankowal (938) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2006
This is the only thing from Coors that I would call "good". It pours a hazy yellowish color and smells rather fruity. A light refreshing flavor, apricots and citrus come to mind. While certainly not anywhere nearly as good some of the other white ales out there, it serves as a easy introduction into wheat beers for those who want to venture out into new territory. Easy to drink, mild but noticable flavors and an easy-on-the-wallet price make this a perfect gateway beer.

A nice golden pour with a fluffy head. Nice and tasty, a very nice belgain ale from a macro brewer.

Pour a smooth, light golden beer with a thick head. Aroma somewhat spicy with hops overtones. Taste very sweet with a shampoo-like aftertaste. Not a bad beer if you like creamy Belgian whites. Decent emulation.

not bad, but not wonderful. A decent beer for a macro, amoma is good malty, yeasty and spicy. flavor is good slightly watery.

2.9
Scubatrip (610) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - JAN 9, 2006
From the bottle, pours a hazy pale yellow with a foamy white head. No lacing on the glass, but the head doesn’t immediately fade. Aromas of bitters, citrus, and yeast. Tastes smooth from the start to the finish, and has a thicker feel than some other Belgians. Tastes of oranges and lemons, with some yeasty flavors at the end. Really no aftertaste. Not my favorite Belgian, but not bad.
