3.2/5  rDev -5.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle, weizen glass, best by September 5, 2011.

But for the quickly dissipating cream colored head, this looks the part of wheat beer. The color is golden and cloudy.

Sadly, this reminds me of the fruit loop sweetness that is Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat. This is not quite as bad, more on the beery side. Coriander, wheat, Meyer lemon or orange peel, and fruit loops.

This style is really not one I favor. I do suppose this isn't a bad job on the style; all the elements of wheat, coriander, and citrus peel are in there. There is a chalky yeast element with a bit of sulfur or other mineral.

It doesn't feel cheap, or light. It has a familiar wheat mouthfeel, that whole grain weight on the tongue. Carbonation is ample.

I must conclude that Wit is just one of the few styles that I really do not care for. This isn't bad, but I'm not more likely to buy one of these or any other Wit over any kind of pale ale.

3.29/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a hazy orange-gold; I swirled it, but there was lots of sediment left in the bottle. Head is 4" in pilsner glass, faded to lingering off-white 1/2" foam. Little sign of effervescence, no lacing left on the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Yeasty and bready. Little there. Grain.

Taste: Clean, watery arrival. Hint of sweetness across mid-palate. Citrus on the finish. Whither the hops?

Mouthfeel: Very slight effervescence and slick-but-clean feel.

Overall: Decent example of the style; always a fave, never disappoints, but doesn't really set itself apart, either. Good for parties and happy hours in the summer.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Always one of my favorite. Golden color, solid foam, and a cloudy look once poured. Smells of citrus fruit is great. The taste is non bitter and very easy going down. I understand that Blue Moon may not be a craft beer in the truest sense, but its a favorite of mine. Always a fall back choice.
