look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Very cold bottle poured into a pint glass
hazy orange/yellow, foamy short white head
smell is not strong; Weiss yeast, hops, banana, orange..oh wait there is an orange slice in there
Tastes good, Weiss yeast is prevalent but is relative to the overall thin nature of this beer, citrus/orange, cantaloupe
mouthfeel is light, drinkable, Its pretty good at a restaurant with a short beer menu, but I wouldnt seek it out outside of this

When I first bought this in a growler from a Louisville KY beer store, I had no idea it was made by Coors. Back then, not being a BA but having discovered micros, if I'd known it was from Coors, I probably would have ignored this beer. I remembered the biggest impression of this beer was the buttery quality of it, unlike anything I'd had to that point. Maybe that was because it was from a keg....

A: Very cloudy, light orange , slight carbs and little head.

S: Fruity note, hint of a buttery scent, mostly a wheat smell.

M: A lot more spirited that I remember , it did have a small bit of the buttery finish at the end. More welcome from the bottle.

T: As a wheat, this is very good. Because I haven't reviewed witbeer before , I'll just go with my impressions. Why have I been shunning this beer? Just like JWD's Pale, this is pretty tasty, and definately better than standard Coors fare. Very citrus flavored, perhaps more of a lemon taste that a Hefe. Alcohol was there, but barely tasted. Good balance, a great summer taste.

Drinkability: I'm glad I tried this one again. From the bottle it was better than from the tap, and a lively beer and a good summer taste. Because this is more available, I could see buying this for daytime cookouts. Good wheat.

From tap into a pitcher then into a weizen glass.

Appearance - Big white head with great retention. Cloudy orange body.

Smell - Not much smell. Light slightly grassy with orange.

Taste - Little bland for a witbier.

Mouthfeel- Decent feel. Medium bodied.

Overall Drinkability - Pretty decent beer, pretty mediocre witbier.

A- pours a cloudy orange-yellow, minimal head, and almost no lacing
S- good smell, definately citrusy- some orange and possibly peach smell
T- pretty decent, could use a bit more complexity and a bit less water, but all in all a good flavor
M- medium build, some carbonation, but moves down the throat real easy
D- goes down smooth

Pours a hazy yellow orange color. Small foamy head. Very little to no lacing. Citrus orange peel aroma. Strong orange taste. Can definitely discern the orange peel. Slight bitterness but sweeter aftertaste. Refreshing beer but not very complex at all.

I had this beer at a local bar & grill, served from the bottle in an unchilled glass with a slice of orange, which really is typical of how wheat beers are served in Europe.

The appearance is cloudy, typical of the style. It has medium/high carbonation that produces a nice head that resides a bit after a few minutes to a small lacey ring. The aroma is malty with a hit of hops and also citrusy (probably accented by the orange. The flavor is definately a wheat malt with some hop bitterness afterward. The orange really brings the citrus flavors along. It has a medium body typical of a wheat, very pleasant.

This is a good session beer. It's flavorful, but not overwhelming. The orange added is a very nice touch. Good for a spring or summer day or evening.

Blue moon 12oz into pint glass.

A: Body pours a hazy straw yellow, with a light white head that dissipates quickly. The level of carbonation is standRd, and no lacing is left behind.

S: The aroma is a smooth grassy orange, with a hint of spice. The level of intensity is low and not very well refined. Sweet esters of lemon are found deep within.

T/M: Body is smooth in texture, with a subtle spice on the finish. The sweet malt backbone is quite nice and well balanced. The hops are not at the fore front, but do show some noble influence. The lingering finish is short, but not exceeding the expectations that I had. 

O: I find this to be a somewhat decent brew, for a macro brewery, not one that I would pinpoint for a benchmark for the style, but a nice addition. A clean and smooth mouthfeel makes this a nice brew to finish off a mountain bike ride when stouts were enjoyed ;)

This was about the only decent beer (other than Sam Adams) on tap at the local Red Lobster.

Poured into a frosted glass so I had to let it warm for a moment to clearly see the cloudy, almost murky gold color. White foamy head was somewhat small (probably would've been thicker had I poured it myself). Decent retention with light lacing.

Very little aroma due to being ice cold, but some citrus and yeast came through.

Nice flavor of sweet malt and wheat to start, with noticable orange peel and coriander. Slightly dry citrus finish.

Mouthfeel is smooth and pleasant with nice crisp carbonation.

Overall pretty refreshing and drinkable, though not the greatest example of a Belgian White.

"Hey bartender, do me a favor and keep your pansy orange slice!"
