This beer may be spiced and all that jazz... too much hype for this craft brew. It's very flavorful but not in a great way. On top of that it's expensive. It's really not that good to the point where I would not recommend it. I certainly see no resemblance to wheat beer which is funny because it says on the bottle that it's unfiltered and Belgian style. Save yourself the trouble and get leff or hoegaarden.

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.
