UPDATED: NOV 17, 2006 it’s a menial beer. girly, definitely. i agree. but i’m giving it a high rating because a lot of times it’s the best beer on tap, and a lot of those times it is more that satisfactory: it’s good. i see we have it at below 50%. i don’t really agree with that. it doesn’t pour particularly well, it lacks any real aroma, its aroma is neglibile. but it does what it’s supposed to do, and it does it very well. i’m surprised, incidentally, to see it at 5.4 % abv. i would have guessed this to be in the pride and joy neighborhood (around 4.8 i think). anyways. the point is, as strange tasting a beer this is, it’s often a passable option at shitty bars, and i thank it for that. and, since i should put up something positive: it has reasonable flavor. neither overly complex, nor underpowered for what it’s meant to do. rerate: too spicy and too carbonated.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2006 My new lawnmower beer for next summer. Refreshing - carbonated -served in a pint glass from the bottle with a slice or orange. I recommend it for what it is - a pleasant brew.

I wish I had tried this before it was a Coors beer, but I hadn’t. Anyway, it’s a refreshing beer with a citrusy earthy quality. Goes down smooth and finishes clean with a mild spice note. I wouldn’t call it Belgian, but it’s not bad for an all night beer. Interestingly, I prefer it out of the bottle.

An incredibly good copy of a Belgian Wit and its made by Coors nonetheless.

Bottle. Minimal smell, flavor and texture. Easy to drink, and slightly better than anything else made by Coors, but not by much.

Probably the best aroma I have experienced. This is just what I have been seeking in a wheat beer. Definitely worth while.

12 oz bottle. Aroma is wheat. Flavor starts out sweet with a hint of blueberries but fades fast and goes a little bitter. Not bad but not my favorite.

Pours a cloudy golden color with thick head that thins pretty quickly. Aroma is of citrus and wheat. Flavor is the same but seems watered down and doesn’t last very long. Definately not the greatest beer out there but not the worst either.

(12 oz bottle: Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, CA) Spicy coriander aroma is most noticeable, with a lightly sweet wheat aroma in the background. Obvious coriander flavor is tempered by a fairly strong bready wheat maltiness, strong relative to most in this style, that is. Lightly sweet and gently bitter, and all taken together, it’s just not a pleasant flavor, especially as it warms up (i.e., drink it cold!). The flavor drops off quickly in the finish, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing here. Light bodied with a watery finish, moderately carbonated, but it still gets kind of stale on the palate. Golden in color and fully cloudy. Wafer thin white head quickly dissipates completely, leaving an ugly looking liquid and nothing else. Not enjoyable, what more need I say?

Berry and banana with a touch of buttery malt on the nose. Appears a cloudy golden color with no head but some fizz in the glass. Flavor is citrus with hints of berry and lemon grass. Some spices on the tongue. Medium to light watery body with a decent fizz. Not a bad brew but then not a great brew either.
