Not a bad cheap beer. It is a pretty lame version of a belgian white, though. It has all the parts just kinda weak.

Until now, I was not aware that this was a MolsonCoors production. Hazy straw color. Spicy, yeast aroma with a touch of citrus. Light bodied and dry with a gentle hint of carbonation. Mixed flavors of yeast, spice, lemon, and grapefruit abound. A mild hit of hops finishes this one off.

Pours light and tastes lights. A citrus flavor come through. Had it on draught while eating at a resturant outside on a hot day. This beer is good for that and not much more.

Bottle. Clove, coriander, wheat and banana aromas. Light golden yellow color - cloudy with little head. Sweet clove and orange flavor. Really a pretty decent Witbier given that it’s a Coors product.

12 oz bottle-pours a white head. Color is a yellow-gold cloudy. Taste is middle of the road. Nice carbonation. Finish has a little bite.

lamas (1661) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 16, 2005
Bottle. Hazy gold with a thin, fizzy light-tan head that diminishes rapidly. Wheaty, lemony and yeasty aroma. Crisp and refreshing with some tangy lemon and orange and a wheaty base. Very peppery and spicy with a little coriander. Short, nothing-lingering finish. Better than I thought it would be.

Tasty stuff, good appearance for a wit, decent spicing, the orange is a bit subdued, but I picked up something reminiscent of cardamom, which isn’t quite appropriate for a wit, but this overall this isn’t a bad wit, and a good choice on a hot day. 355mL bottle.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2006 On tap, this ranks up there with some other very good wit beers. The great thing is you can get it almost anywhere. Thin, whispy head with a hazy golden color. I love the fact that it’s unfiltered. Nice coriander and orange flavor and aroma that complement the wheat. Nice aftertaste. Especially good on a hot day.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2012 I was very surprised when I ordered this beer on a whim in a pub in Washington D.C.. Very flavorful and absolutely no aftertaste! As soon as I returned home to Orange County, I went out and bought myself a 12-pack.

Squirreldogger (4) - Chicago (Lincoln Park), Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2005 does not count
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2007 This great stuff! There is no doubt that if this were brewed in Belgian instead of here in the states it would rate around a 1/2 point higher.....at least! Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t Hoegarrden....but it’s close and unlike Hoegarrden can be found EVERYWHERE and is cheap! ....$6.49/ 6 pack. THIS IS IN NOT BREWED BY COORS!! COORS BOUGHT THE RIGHTS TO THE COMPANY "BLUE MOON" THEY MAKE THE MONEY NOT THE BEER!!
