Really good session beer. I think I'm going to keep this in my house. If you haven't tried it and you like smooth beers, then give this a try. By far, Coors best offering.

Not a lot of bite or flavor but not a bad option. You could do worse

It's been a while since I had one, not really that bad. When choices are slim you could do much worse.

Smooth witbier, very light. I would recommend it to my daughter on her 18th birthday instead of her regular orange juice. Not very exciting but good, just like Hoegaarden or Blanche de Namur. Underrated on BA, definitely.

12 oz bottle. Everybody knocks this one because of the Coors ownership but all in all it's not a bad beer. Is it a premium beer to be purchased at a premium price? No way. Sold for what you pay for other BMCp fine. On to the review.

Decent head atop a cloudy orangey liquid. Not much retention or lacing, but some. Smell is good though,with a healthy wheat malt twang and notes of bananas and apples. A bit of soap mixed with yeast. Taste has more of the same with good flavors of cereal grains, light sugars, and powdery yeast. Light fruits and lemony zestiness. A touch of honey. Crisp feel is a strongpoint and the lively carbonation has a light creaminess. Great drinkability tries to compensate for the lack of depth flavor wise. There's taste here and it's far more that the BMC partners usual offerings but its shallowness belies its parentage. Still ill drink it and enjoy it for what it is. Decent and quaffable.

Appearance: Cloudy; orangish-yellow; frothy medium white head

Smell: hints of the orange peel and coriander as on the label

Taste: juicy malt with subdued hop bitterness; finishes slightly sweet; nothing special, but pretty drinkable

Mouthfeel: slightly thin with light carbonation

Remarks: good session ale for a large market beer
