Light flowery aroma with hints of cloves, not overly sweet with a clean finish, sits very well in the mouth. Lots of people add orange or lemon, i prefere it with out. This is a great fall beer by the firepit enjoying some chili.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2005
Biscuity malts, wheat and citrus character are all apparent in the aroma, but no real spiciness. Opaque, tan yellow body with a low off white head that recedes to ring. Citrus and wheat flavours are strong along with mild banana esters. Spiciness is subdued and mostly apparent on the tongue in the aftertaste. Very gassy medium body with strong, crisp, pointy carbonation. Seems like a decent American Wheat beer but a bit too dumbed down for a witbier. Sampled on tap at the Sandlot at Coors Field.

Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - DEC 8, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2006 Pours a yellow hazy color with a light head that dissipates quickly. A noticeable sweetness and citrus flavor. I like this beer, but I hate when it is served to me with an orange. Beer should never have any additives in my opinion.

GirlyBeer (190) - Old Orchard Beach, Maine, USA - DEC 7, 2005
On tap: Yeasty aroma, it was hard to see if it was clear or had a nice belgian white haze because it was served to me in a frosted pint glass. This beer started out okay, but towards the end I had a hard time finishing my pint, it had an odd flavor to it. Thin white head.

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.
