Pours light-med yellow slightly cloudy. Minimal head dissipates rather quickly. Smell is not overpowreing; slightly citrus-hoppy.
There is a pronounced citrus character to the flavor, which due to being an ale is slightly more bitter than a lager, but the citrus is balanced by the wheat and malt, and the taste rolls off the tongue and nose with more flavor than at first taste.
I liked it bottled without the additional citrus wedge. Had this at a restaurant on tap with wedge, and the citrus was overpowering, and I reached for my mate's stout instead to finish off fish and chips. As a session drink though, its fine on its own. Somewhere between a Budweiser and a Geverztraminer wine.
On a side note, a half bottle refrigerated retained its flavor without deteriorating sourly.

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.
