Appearance - very cloudy, pineapple juice yellow. A thin finger of head holds for several minutes and maintains a thin partial cover.

Aroma - orange blossoms, Creamsicle, light crackery malts.

Taste - nice wheaty base, the orange is flavorful without being sugary. A mild tartness on the swallow. some mild bittering on the aftertaste. Finishes dry, clean, and refreshing.

Mouthfeel - smooth, crisp, average weight.

Overall - easy session beer for summer/fall. Good one for the crossover crowd as well.

A: Pours a relatively clear medium honey yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation streaming from the bottom of the glass and some brassy highlights. The beer has a half finger tall creamy off-white head that reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Overall a very light aroma to this beer, it starts out with light aromas of citrus/orange zest followed by light aromas of peppery yeast and just a hint of coriander.

T: Upfront there are light flavors of wheat with slightly stronger flavors of orange + orange zest that has a light amount of sweetness. There is a light amount of peppery yeast (white pepper) and just a hint of coriander. Very light amounts of herbal hops which impart a light amount of bitterness.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Relatively smooth, almost creamy.

O: I like all of the aspects of this beer with the exception of the herbal hop/medicinal flavor that lingers a bit in the finish. Otherwise a middle of the road witbier, pretty easy to drink with well hidden alcohol but not really interesting enough for me to get again.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a dark hazy straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured sweet orange, esters and coriander.

The taste offered an upfront estery wave with orange and spice to follow. Pleasant round malts noted as well.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a tasty wit.

A - Cloudy orange pour with a bubbly white foam head. Slight lacing.

S - Strong citrus smell with a bit of yeast and zest. Some coriander spice lingers.

T - Decent flavor of light grains and tart orange flavor. Finish is mildly spiced.

M - Easy drinking witbier with good drinkability. Good BBQ beer pairing.

O - Just a solid wheat beer with some strong citrus notes. Better to have orange in your beer this way than what Blue Moon does.
