A good summer beer when there is no corona about. A little too light for me to drink regularly.

I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. I had it on tap after 16 hours of traveling, so maybe any beer would have tasted good after all of that. It had a spicy aroma and the color was a golden cloudy color with minimal white head. The flavor was decent with some citrus and spice. Not too bad overall.

I like this beer in moderation in the summertime. Its cheap and it holds up moderately to other wheats on tap in the area (Penn Weizen, Hoegaarden, Brooklyner Weisse, etc) but definitly not the best. Cloudy off-orange appearance. Citrusy and hoppy floral notes on the nose masked by cheapness of Coors. Its a bit sweet and hard to down more than a few of these in one sitting. Why do they put fruit in beer? I took the orange slice out that was floating in my beer.

Slightly cloudy, amber color with small white head. A bit thin, fair spice flavor but not too exciting.

Hints of orange, sweet spices. Decent summer brew. Grew tired of the flavor; its definitely a once-in-a-while kind of beer.

Pale hazed golden, fizzy white head. Lightly spiced corriander-like nose with softer tones of citrus, wheat, and wet white bread. Flavor was up front orange and lemon zest, sweet spices, and dried wheat, with a touch of hop bitterness to round it out. Light to medium bodied, light carbonation, spiced, wheaty, juicy citrus finish. A good summertime crossover brew for the newbie beer geek...

Not bad for a mass produced beer from Coors Brewing Co. The aroma had a bit of a tea thing going on. This one pours a cloudy gold color.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2007 Pours a light golden with a thin head of fine carbonation that quickly recedes. Aroma of spice and metal, slightly unpleasant. But I could just be looking for macro swill qualities. Tastes better than it smells. Citrus is the first thing I taste, presumably from the orange peel, hopefully not from any of the ’natural flavors’. This is a very misleading term and I wish the FDA would change it. I really do not taste the wheat, and that is why this beer is mediocre in my opinion. Not to mention it is brewed by Coors and shilled as Belgium beer. The aftertaste is questionable but not bad. The first witbier I ever brewed was better than this. I won’t refuse a Blue Moon, but you won’t find it in my fridge again.

First witbier Ive sampled....somehow expected it to be darker. Pours a cloudy gold color with a white head that quickly disappears. Aroma has hints of oranges, for sure. Taste is citrusy on the front and then spices in the finish.

Bottle, Plenty of head cause I poured it goofy, but it quickly disappated. Cloudy nice color a little to the red of golden. Inital odor is of oranges and coriander, as has been said, but below that there is a pungent smell that is not entirely pleasant, perhaps my bottle is old. Taste includes a little of the odor, a little bit of belgian yeast and malt, and then it goes a bit bland. Nice for a grocery store beer, but other beers are spoiling me vs. this.
