Notes/Commercial Description:
A Belgium wheat ale, spiced with orange reel and coriander that is strong and smooth. The Full Moon Belgium White displays a hazy orange amber color with a light aroma of sweet orange. This is another delicious beer to enjoy on a warm Arizona evening.

Picked up a single from BevMo in late May for $1.59.

Beer poured orange with little to no head.

Nose is sweet with a hint of citrus.

Taste is cloyingly sweet. No orange peel or coriander to speak of.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and lacking carbonation.

Overall this is a sugar bomb that does not resemble the style. Avoid.

Poured from bottle to glass. White head didn't build and quickly dissipated. Color straw and clear. Good amount of carbonation. Smells of lemon, wheat, and malt. Tasted citrus, not bitter, little bit of spice. Had a distinct malt aftertaste. Over all white ale that was not overly fruity.

Pours a murky dirty straw color with minimal head.
Smells of wheat, dough and a bit of herb. In the taste, brown sugar, citrus and a moderate bitterness. Lemon and a bit of brown sugar.
Medium body, decent carbonation, wheat in the finish.
Overall, a decent wheat, but not great.

Pours with virtually no head whatsoever. Cloudy straw color. Nose is light with a slight sour-like quality, perhaps an off-yeasty aroma too. Wheaty flavors on the palate with good carbonation, sour flavors, a slight cardboardy flavor in there too. Hints of juicy fruit bubblegum. Sour finish. Unpleasant.

Poured from a 12 oz. brown bottle with no freshness date visible into a pint glass and I got 1/2 fingers of head.

A: Pours a hazy golden color with 1/2 fingers of head that dissipates quickly to leave only a soapy ring around the top of my glass. Little to no lacing.

S: Big smell of yeast and bread. Also, a smell of orange blossoms and coriander.

T: Something citric at first and then sweet like malts and then really sweet and finishes spicy. I do not detect the taste of alcohol, even though the ABV is 8.5%.

M: Thick and creamy and low carbonation.

O: This is not a beer that I would have again. I can not recommend it. Unfortunately, this is the closest beer that I have had to a drain pour since I tried Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA. That is a strong statement coming from me. I'm glad that I only bought one. This beer is just too malty and too sweet... cloyingly sweet.
