I had high hopes for this beer since it was recommended by many people. It's a very mediocre whit in my opinion. I agree with others that this seems very much like a macro lager just in whit form. It's appearance is fine enough. It didn't have much smell to speak of, only slight hints of fruit and spice...slightly metallic (?). Taste was a big 'meh' for me...it just tasted stale to me. All the right flavors were there for this style, just completely watered down and subdued. This is a very poor example of this style and should be avoided in my opinion.

A solid "good" wheat beer. Cloudy deep straw color; light citrus, spicy orange and coriander flavor and aroma; medium body and average carbonation for a wheat beer. Goes well with a meal and conversation, where it is not distracting, but it is still worthwhile paying attention to the flavors in the beer. I first tried it at Sams #3 in Denver, where it was on tap and served with an orange slice on the rim of the glass. The orange slice called attention to the fruity elements in the beer and was a pleasant addition. I also used it as a reference level in a tasting of wheat beers with a couple of friends. In that tasting (with no orange slice) the balance between the flavor of the spices and citrus fruitiness was very pleasant. At that tasting, we rated the Blue Moon as "good" when compared with St. Bernardus witbier (world class), Maui Mana Wheat (very good) and Flying Dog In Heat (equal to or slightly below the Blue Moon).

Pours pale gold with white head. It's fairly cloudy and produces lots of bubbles. Smell is very citrusy, grapefruit and orange stand out. The spice notes come through more in the taste. It's also fairly sweet. Haven't had one in a long time, but this will be my go to wheat beer now.

Blue Moon Belgian White 16 oz can $1.79(OH)

16 oz can poured into a stemless white wine glass. Drink before date printed on the bottom.

Pours a hazy orange with slight amber tones. A little more than a two finger head, that leaves very little lacing. The head don't last too long either. A small froth remains on the surface.

The smell is that of a spicy orange with hints of cinnamon. The coriander (cilantro) smell is dominate here.

The taste is dominated by coriander (cilantro), with after tones of wheat, oranges and cinnamon.

Mouth feel is decent. a medium body brew, good carbonation. too many bubbles would ruin this. Its leaves your mouth spicy and wanting more. Not dry nor bitter. After a while the spices may get old or displeasing, so not a session beer in my opinion.

Overall a great twist on a witbier, if you like spices coriander mainly. I do wish the coriander was more subtle, letting the wheat and orange notes shine through. But not bad at all. I've had this brew several times and will again. It's just so easy to find and when you are looking in a cooler at a gas station and see nothing else, its worth grabbing.
