UPDATED: JAN 17, 2018 16oz can. Light, citrusy and easy to down. good stuff. Smells and looks like watered down orange juice. Refreshing on a hot summer day in the future.

Can - pours a clouded light gold with a puffy 1 finger white cap which lasts well and laces the glass walls. Aroma of pungent cereals, light coriander seed notes and lemon grass, clean aroma. Flavor is biscuit malts with coriander-spicy balance, fair bittering - goes to spicy, lightly bitter dry finish. Dusty biscuit malt character, coriander not overpowering, dry, refreshing but satisfying - decent enough witbier, not over the top - I was surprised this came from Molsons.

Soft on the palette. Nice aroma. Fresh on the tongue to start with but the refreshing starts to die down half way through the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2018 1/6/18 With Abby about to Watch the Empire Strikes Back. Poured from bottle. Hazy almost opaque orange with a 1 finger white head. Smell is sweet wheat and fruity. Taste is really sweet from the wheat with a fair presence of yeasty spice (coriander?). Definitely taste the orange too. It’s yummy. Feel is pretty thick for the abv. Really solid here. Overall I like it. One of my favorite macro beers and super easy drinking.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2018 A servir impérativement avec une rondelle d’agrume doux (orange, mandarine) pour sublimer la bière sinon beaucoup moins d’intérêt. Bière rafraîchissante très parfumée (agrumes, coriandre). Assez répandue aux USA, se consomme à la pression, avec la rondelle d’orange, pour une soirée agréable en amoureux.

xist_ (11) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2018 Pours a darkish golden, with a very large white head. Aromas of orange, zest, yeast and a little banana. Tastes of mostly orange, with the slightest amount of hops. Very thick, wheaty body with a nice, smooth refreshing finish. Not bitter. This is one of my favorite lower end beers (along with Steam Whistle), it tastes great and isn't all that expensive. It's definitely far better than the beers of the same price (Coors, Bud Light, Stella, etc) and I'd recommend it.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2017 Maybe I’ve given this an overzealous 5/5 in my youth lol - having noted this score in my 1001 Beers book with the comment “great with orange”. Can’t beat a chilled bottle on a summer’s eve though. The pub by me also does it on draught with the complimentary orange slice. Very refreshing.

Fernanbeer (9) - SPAIN - DEC 12, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2017 Aroma a cilantro, naranja y algo de trigo Color pajizo dorado con turbiedad, carbonatación alta y espuma muy fina que desaparece al instante. Cuerpo medio, notas a malta, destaca el sabor a cilantro, ligera acidez, retrogusto especiado y picante muy duradero Regular, destaca demasiado las especias y la espuma es casi inexistente, quizá porque la consumí 10 días antes de su fecha de caducidad
