Look - Pours a cloudy light orange, two fingers of frothy white head, good retention and patchy lacing left behind.
Aroma - Concentrated orange, oats, grainy
Taste - Sweetish orange candy, soft graininess, biscuit, dry yeast, musty. Finishes sweet with lingering orange on the palate.
Feel - Light bodied, soft carbonation. Not very dry, but very drinkable.

Overall - A touch more bitterness would help balance the sweetness in my opinion. Like all Coors products it's easy drinking and has a fair price. Great beer to pair with food.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: A cloudy golden orange beer with a quickly dissipating soapy head.

smell: Biscuity, bakers flour notes.. and a very muted scent of tangerine peel.

Taste: A sweet and creamy beer with mild notes of wheaty biscuits and rustic brown breads.

Mouthfeel: A mildly carbonated, thick and hearty beer.. very filling.

Final Thoughts:
=============
In my opinion this beer is pretty run of the mill as far as Witbiers go..

The flavour profiles and aroma of the beer are just a little too muted in comparison to other Witbiers I've tried.

But don't get me wrong.. this is still a very drinkable and pleasant beer.

Cheers!

A nice unfiltered cloudy pouring wheat ale....no lacing to speak of......Great flavor with an orange/ wheat sweet malt taste.........I do not taste a big hop infusion here if you are into that. I like these kinds of beer...... although as a change of pace it's nice to drink some really good hops ones like Zombie Dust and Two Hearted .......major cost factor on those though.
