3.43/5  rDev +0.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Served on tap in a tall pilsner glass, I think this was a 23 oz. pour. I promptly removed the orange slice...

Appearance: Poured an almost opaque and cloudy golden/orange with a frothy one-finger head which dissipated to a light film and outer ring of foam. Very little lacing present, but plenty of strong carbonation bubbles consistently rise to the top of the beer. Eventually what you look at in the glass is just a goopy orange liquid, but it has a very nice unfiltered look and looks good in a tall pilsner glass.

Smell: Lots of citrus and orange peel, mostly. Very interesting and "springy," I guess. This smells like a good summer beer. A little bit of sweetness from the malt as well as some spiciness from the hops used in the beer as well as some hints of fresh wheat. It's a little tame and watered-down, but not bad by any means.

Taste: Citrus and orange flavors are what predominate in the beginning of the taste, followed by a sweep of wheat flavors and some mild spice from the hops used. Interesting, tangy, and very appropriate for bringing in the warmer seasons of the year, but I can't help but to feel like this is a watered-down version of a true witbier. It has a slightly "macro" aftertaste (you know what I mean), which bears evidence of its ownership by Coors, but it's not as nearly as pronounced as other beers they've produced.

Mouthfeel: Lots of carbonation prickles the tongue as the beer goes down and leaves a satisfying and drying finish, although the macro characteristics of the aftertaste also create a slightly foamy sensation in the mouth. Pretty average mouthfeel on the light side, but it's still crisp and snappy.

Drinkability: Eh, it's not bad. Not something that I would make a staple in my fridge, but it has some pretty interesting flavor to keep bringing me back.

This was my gateway beer, and I'm not ashamed to say that. This is by far the best offering that Coors has, and although I won't buy it on a regular basis, it's a decent effort to get the macro drinker to explore other styles, even if the advertising is rather deceitful.

Serving type: on-tap

Blue Moon Belgian White 16 oz can $1.79(OH)

16 oz can poured into a stemless white wine glass. Drink before date printed on the bottom.

Pours a hazy orange with slight amber tones. A little more than a two finger head, that leaves very little lacing. The head don't last too long either. A small froth remains on the surface.

The smell is that of a spicy orange with hints of cinnamon. The coriander (cilantro) smell is dominate here.

The taste is dominated by coriander (cilantro), with after tones of wheat, oranges and cinnamon.

Mouth feel is decent. a medium body brew, good carbonation. too many bubbles would ruin this. Its leaves your mouth spicy and wanting more. Not dry nor bitter. After a while the spices may get old or displeasing, so not a session beer in my opinion.

Overall a great twist on a witbier, if you like spices coriander mainly. I do wish the coriander was more subtle, letting the wheat and orange notes shine through. But not bad at all. I've had this brew several times and will again. It's just so easy to find and when you are looking in a cooler at a gas station and see nothing else, its worth grabbing.
