Light yellow beer whose head doesnt stand up too well for a witbier. Some soapy aromas, cereal, and peach. Thin mouthfeel with a chalky finish. Exceeded my expectations for a mass market beer, but not by a whole lot.

Orange in color with a white head. Smells like fruit loops. Taste is watery and fruity. Not much complexity. Tastes similar to a Sam Adams White ale w/o the hops. Very bland in taste.

This ia really a very good beer. The aroma of apricots and spice doesnt overpower the wheat and hops. It was served with a slice of arange and having sampled it both ways, I say keep the orange, for aroma matters.

Good mass market stuff, but pretty wipy when compared to some of the wheat smaller batches. Again, a good choice at the local grocery store.

Poured cloudy golden yellow with a thin white head with big bubbles...seemed too yellow...smells a little lemony and also like gummy worms...tastes very bland...very lightly spiced (if at all) with cloves and coriander...thin bodied, but the cleanest sweetest finish I have yet to find in a White...as bland as it is, it is still somehow flavorful (I know that goes against what I said previously) and refreshing...good late night summer sitting on the patio beer...

I had this on tap at the Reno airport of all places. The bartender said it was a heffewiezen but i didnt see any in the list so im guessing it was this. Anyways, this was a decent beer especially compared to the other crap they had on tap. Decent taste but nothing special

Maybe it was because we just came off the golf course and needed an elixir, but I found this to be surprisingly pretty good. Cloudy pale yellow, citrus and fruit on the nose, some light wheat taste, good mouthfeel and quite refreshing.

This was probably my first venture into the whole "belgian" beer scene. Yeah its Coors and its not the greatest belgian white but it was good then, and its still not bad today. But like my friend tsarman said in his review, Id rather go with the Hoegaarden
