This beer seems to exist to prove the point that the big boys COULD brew a halfway decent beer IF they choose to do so. Its a rather innoffensive little Wit, perfect for a hot day of grilling out on the deck...
Appearance is well above the macrobrew average, with actual color and a bit of haze in a - hold on to your hats, unfiltered macro brew! Little smell comes through, but notes of fruit pop now and again. Taste is acceptable, this is clearly not a style-defining or bursting Belgian Wit, but it is recognizable. The relatively high score is a nod to it's coors heritage - I want to try to encourage adolph to brew more beers like this and fewer like Aspen. Beer is easily drinkable, due to it's lack of agressive traits. One could easily drink several in a sitting, if only the taste provided some justification to such behavior.

Pours pale gold with white head. It's fairly cloudy and produces lots of bubbles. Smell is very citrusy, grapefruit and orange stand out. The spice notes come through more in the taste. It's also fairly sweet. Haven't had one in a long time, but this will be my go to wheat beer now.

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.
