Poured from a bottle into a Weizen glass.
A – Pours a cloudy straw yellow with a sparkly white head that disappears quickly, leaving tiny traces on the sides. Started with serious lacing, but vanished completely midway through the glass.
S – Smells of coriander, and a big fruity aroma, but with an odd “off” character. Smells a little…chemical? Synthetic? Definitely not a good note to have surface.
T – Big citrus esters, with hints of orange, lemon, banana, and apricot, but more of that cloying imitation fruit note detected in the nose is prevalent in the taste. Outside of that, decently balanced.
M – Is it possible for “slightly fizzy” carbonation to be a good thing? In this beer, it is. The carbonation compliments the taste and makes for an easy drink. Finishes clean. Refreshing.
O – Would be a lot better without the odd notes described above. It’s almost as if they flavor this with some sort of artificial fruit flavor. Not a bad beer though, and a good alternative to mass-produced AB adjunct lagers when in a restaurant or dive bar where no other craft beer options are available.

355ml bottle served cold into a pint glass, aboard the cruise ship while in Estonia. Re-reviwewing this while away on holiday.
Appearance - hazy rich golden color with plenty of honey brown and even some orange hues. Nice two finger head caps of the beer off. The cascading white head had good retention time, finally dissolving away after a few minutes into a wispy white residue.
Smell - orange and plenty of coriander, not alot else, but the aroma is fairly hefty.
Taste - orange and coriander melds together nicely with some other spices. Mild alcohol heat is also noticeable at the back of the mouth and in the throat. Still it's well put together.
Mouthfeel - uncanny creaminess almost to the point of being too much and making this beer too heavy for its own good. I prefer my witbier, to be a touch lighter.
Overall - blue moon is a fine wit beer, and something I was certainly happy to have available to me while on vacation, instead of the usual adjunct and light lagers. Nevertheless as far as wit beers go it's still only in the middle of the pack, some worse but many better, but definitely serves as a great and accessible introductory craft-like beer.
