Pours a hazy amber color. A decent-sized head reduces to a few small wisps rather quickly. No lacing.
The nose contains subtle hints of orange and coriander, but these are mostly overpowered by an anonymous, boring corny malt scent. Tastes like it smells.
This beer is easy to get along with. Its lack of distinguishing characteristics make it almost impossible to hate... or to love. Blue Moon is basically exactly what you'd expect of a BMC attempt at a craft beer.: relatively bland for the style and altogether unremarkable. It definitely tastes better than Coors Light, though.

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.
