Appearance: Cloudy light orangey/brown color.
Aroma: Just a little malt, a little orange and coriander and a whole lot of alcohol.
Taste: The flavor is slightly like Blue Moon but better. Orange flavor is also much more present. The alcohol is definitely more noticeable. Sweet malts upfront with some orange. This is a full bodied ale; the finish has a twang.
Overall: Good beer, greet improvement over standard Blue Moon. The alcohol does, however, permeate through. Its full body is great on a cold night. This is a must try.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Cloudy, bright orange with a steady stream of bubbles. Off-white head fades quickly and totally. Saw some suspended solids at the end of my bottle, expected for an unfiltered beer.

S: Mild, but pleasant. Coriander, orange, banana peel, wheat. Maybe some mineral?

T: Exactly as advertised; typical wheat beer with coriander, orange, and malt. Displays less of the overpowering citrus that tends to be typical for this style, however, which is appreciated, and does have a complexity that keeps me interested and refreshed through all 25.4 ounces (and I like the full European bomber volume, not 22 oz.).

M: Low viscosity, high carbonation, thirst-quenching.

O: A very good witbeer that ups the ante from their more popular Blue Moon Belgian Wheat, and also deviates pleasantly from other, more highly acclaimed contenders in this variety. Calling it a Grand Cru might be a stretch, but it does not deserve the negative tilt that many put on it (appearance is 'dirty' instead of 'cloudy', many mention an off-putting alcohol taste that I could not even slightly detect (and which I appreciate, in this 8.2% beer)). I'm not eager to pay the premium for this beer again, but I don't regret paying it once to know that the guys who also make Keystone do indeed know what they are doing.
