Served on tap in a tall pilsner glass, I think this was a 23 oz. pour. I promptly removed the orange slice...
Appearance: Poured an almost opaque and cloudy golden/orange with a frothy one-finger head which dissipated to a light film and outer ring of foam. Very little lacing present, but plenty of strong carbonation bubbles consistently rise to the top of the beer. Eventually what you look at in the glass is just a goopy orange liquid, but it has a very nice unfiltered look and looks good in a tall pilsner glass.
Smell: Lots of citrus and orange peel, mostly. Very interesting and "springy," I guess. This smells like a good summer beer. A little bit of sweetness from the malt as well as some spiciness from the hops used in the beer as well as some hints of fresh wheat. It's a little tame and watered-down, but not bad by any means.
Taste: Citrus and orange flavors are what predominate in the beginning of the taste, followed by a sweep of wheat flavors and some mild spice from the hops used. Interesting, tangy, and very appropriate for bringing in the warmer seasons of the year, but I can't help but to feel like this is a watered-down version of a true witbier. It has a slightly "macro" aftertaste (you know what I mean), which bears evidence of its ownership by Coors, but it's not as nearly as pronounced as other beers they've produced.
Mouthfeel: Lots of carbonation prickles the tongue as the beer goes down and leaves a satisfying and drying finish, although the macro characteristics of the aftertaste also create a slightly foamy sensation in the mouth. Pretty average mouthfeel on the light side, but it's still crisp and snappy.
Drinkability: Eh, it's not bad. Not something that I would make a staple in my fridge, but it has some pretty interesting flavor to keep bringing me back.
This was my gateway beer, and I'm not ashamed to say that. This is by far the best offering that Coors has, and although I won't buy it on a regular basis, it's a decent effort to get the macro drinker to explore other styles, even if the advertising is rather deceitful.

Blue Moon Belgian White brewed by Coors. This brew is non-filtered but pours amber with a white head. I'm not a big fan of non-filtered beers. This beer smells like citrus and beer. The taste is good with smooth. There is nothing bad about this brew. This beer goes down smooth and fresh. Overall I give this beer a 3.75 out of 5. This was a good beer.

For the pleasure this beer has given me over the years i have to say this is one of those that i always go back for over and over again. My first serving of this beer was back in 2006, we've been friends ever since. Its not my favorite though, i am a stout drinker but in the social setting i turn to this white ale. Its not too heavy but its full of flavor and perfect with a complimentary garnishing of orange slice.
