Taste a little like celery. Kind of disgusting. I drank 3 and gave up. Not anything I want to buy again.

Light flowery aroma with hints of cloves, hazy light amber appearance, small fizzy head, citrus and cloves flavor, not overly sweet with a clean finish, sits very well in the mouth. Reliably drinkable and has found a regular spot in my rotation.

Old reliable.....good price and always available. Though not as full flavored as a true Belgian, it has all the characteristics.

Liked the peppery citrus aroma and the finish. I was suprised when I found out it was made by Coors. Not a bad job for a macrobrewery.

Had a small creamy head with a light orange cloudy color. I thought it tasted a little like celery. I tasted it first without the orange and then with the orange and I liked the added orange flavor.

tjthresh (1871) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - NOV 26, 2005
On tap. Hazy straw yellow. No head. Garnished with an orange. Spicy and wheaty, but mostly I smelled the orange. It had a nice citus/spicey flavor. Lots of carbonation over the tongue. Not bad.

jercraigs (10145) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2005
Hazy orange-yellow, barely a small white head and even that doesnt last. Sweet candyish orange, very mild spice in the aroma. Flavour is more bland than expected, mild bitterness and muted muddled yeast and orange. Not quite medium body, but the palate is excellent for a macro brew. Thanks for this one beerandblues2.
