I used to love this beer when it first arrived on the scene, and still have one from time to time. But after Coors bought the company, I've moved on to other Witbiers that I like a little better.

Appearance: Cloudy golden color with a nice thick head that doesn't retain long and leaves little lacing. I enjoy an orange slice with this beer.

Smell: Unmistakable scents of orange, coriander and yeast.

Taste: Sweet, malty, yeasty with the up front orange peel and coriander flavors that make this a unique beer.

Mouthfeel: Medium to high carbonation, a bit thin and watery.

Drinkability: Very easy to drink and a decent American version of a Belgian Witbier, but if given the choice I'd go for a couple of other Witbiers first, if possible.

I read Todd's review of this one and I really can't add much more, but I will.

First off, lets ignore that this is a Coors/macro product, OK? I know it, you know it, there you have it. Rather, lets calibrate it via to the other two Wit's that I've had recently.

Big spice/citrus, right off the bat, and I threw the orange it was served with to the side...none of that, thanks. I have to say that overall the spicing it way too much, but not so overpowering as to lose it all. Yeasty and very cloudy, this is the most opaque I've had of the 3 wits in scope. Not a sipper, this one like to be consumed in glugs.

In the positive column, the carb is great, very little residual lacing but plenty on the tongue while being minimal in head. FYI, this is another good reason to throw that orange away right off the bat.

This is the one that your friends can buy at the corner store. This is the one that many will base their Belgian experience off of first; and it could be worse. It isn't bad, no matter what I want to say about it ( and I *like* Coors generally, BTW).

Big peppercorn/curacao/etc. This is not a lightly spiced beer at all. I wish that it were a little (ok, a lot) less spiced and more malty, but I think this is a play to the crowd. That being said, it is drinkable and enjoyable once you've gotten past the imbalance inherent in their formulation.

Average, but for a macro/micro I have to give them more credit than I honestly wanted to. /me concedes

This beer is the absolute definition of "average." Nothing is offensive, nothing is particularly good. It's a shame that the mainstream thinks of this when they think of American craft, but oh well. The name is fitting because I'll only drink this once in a blue moon, when nothing else is available but the standard BMCs.

A - Hazy golden-orange with a small fizzy white head. Sometimes an orange slice ends up on top of this whether you like it or not.

S - Wheat, grain, orange peel, and mild spices.

T - Not too exciting. Rough wheat, pale malt, grain, breadiness, orange, and coriander. Fairly bland. An orange slice actually adds to this because there's not too much flavor in it. Belgian wit this is not.

M - Light-to-medium body. A little harsh for the style, but not too bad.

D - While the style itself tends to be pretty drinkable due to how light it is, this beer does not fare too well in comparison to others in the style. The roughness of the wheat actually hinders the drinkability a bit.
