A lot of hype about this beer in the non-craft beer drinking community. Every time I mention that I like microbrews and craft beer to one of these people, they almost always respond with "What's that one stuff I had with an orange that one time? Oh yea, I love Blue Moon, that's my favorite microbrew."
Anyway, the stuff looks good from the start. Nice and cloudy pale yellow with a decent frothy head that hangs around. The smell wasn't bad, but I do not like the smell of imitation apricot extract. Imitation or not, that's how it smells. On top of that, there was a mild spiciness. There is a lot of cracker in the taste, definitely not a smooth, balanced crackery taste either. I can see why people drink it with orange, like with so many American wheat beers, it's to get that taste out of the mouth! Hops didn't make an appearance.
Serving type: on-tap
