This is a good beer. I enjoyed it was served with a medium white head and an orange, cloudy body. The taste was very pleasant and even with citrus and coriander giving way to fresh wheat. Is it wrong to prefer this Coors product to the less consistent Hoegaarden?

Poured from a bottle into a glass for review; although I have had this beer many times straight out of the bottle.

A-Typical wheat beer appearance. Very little head.

S- Decent aroma. Strong smell of wheat with hints of orange.

T- Has a pretty decent taste. Wheat and orange tastes are present. This has a lighter taste than most wheat beers.

M-Has a lot of carbonation. Not a strong or overpowering feel to it. Goes down smooth.

O-This is a decent beer for many reasons. The overall taste and presence this beer has is above average. Not the best wheat beer I have had but it is priced fair and easily found. Good beer to start out on when you are ready to leave the bmcs and enjoy the world of craft beer.

Pours a tangerine color. Tiny head fades almost immediately. No lacing. A lot of carbonation. Citrusy wheat smell. Goes down smooth with a light fruity finish. Pretty decent flavor for a common beer. It's watered down but not bad. Overall it's a go-to domestic beer. If there are no craft options, I'd go with a blue moon.

Appearance. Very hazy with some lacing. Very effervescent.

Smell. The smell of orange was very obvious when the bottle was opened but so was a rather off putting smell of white wine. Vinegary and sour is the best way I can think to describe the aroma.

Taste. Again the orange comes through very well but it is still fighting with the almost vinegar like quality that was just so overpowering that I could not taste the spices at all. Have to confess to finding it disappointing.

Mouthfeel. Thin.

Overall. 'Not my cup of tea' (as we say in Northern Ireland) but I think if you are into Lambic style beers this is probably more for you. I approached this beer expecting something more in the lines of a typical Belgian or Dutch wheat beer and was put off by the sour vinegar nature of this one. I feel almost guilty for rating it in the way I have but in Belfast it was either marketed incorrectly or it is not what it claims to be.

Cloudy orange/amber look. Smells like lemon flowers. Had a citrus, lemon, flower taste. With wheat. Good mouthfeel. Very drinkable, though with the orange slice, I kept thinking the lemon smell was soapy. I really liked this beer for a summer flavor. Would eat the orange slice first, then drink the beer without it. Just have the orange for it's nutrition.
