Was surprised to see this is a Coors product. While not quite the same as most belgian beers I have had, it is not bad coming from a major beer producer. I would be happy to see this beer more widely available if for no other reason to have a decent beer available more often. It has a nice yellow color with a hint of orange, and a somewhat creamy head. The aromas are somewhat fruity, like citrus and a hint of banana. The taste is rather clean with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. While I think my buddy was expecting more from a belgium white style beer, it is not a bad beer at all. Definitely refreshing, it is a good warm weather beer, and would make a good compromise between truly good beer and the macro stuff. Very easy to drink a few of these.

Blue Moon Belgian White

Appearance – 4.0 – nice orange/amber color, slightly hazy as it should be for a wheat beer, Not very much head but hey who care the orange looks badass!

Smell – 3.75 – orange, wheat, citrus, nice breadiness

Taste – 3.75 – orange, wheaty breadiness, papaya, mango, rice, corn, typical “craft beer' dumbed down for the masses

Mouthfeel – 3.75 – light medium, no alc, aftertaste is light/sweet breadiness with some orange in there

Overall – 3.75 – it's alright, I'd get a Blue Moon if it was all I could get (aka I'm out for happy hour and it's 2 bucks... u know).

Seems like a Lot of people really enjoy Slagging this Beer,and call it a very poor example of a Belgian white/Witbier ~and while I will totally Agree there are much better Belgian Witbiers made here in America,[Flying Dog Breweries "Woody Creek" Being one of the Best IMHO] blue Moon's Belgian White [Coors] still is a Very Nice Witbier for the money,[About 14 bucks a 12ver] I Really like the fact that I can afford to drink a Decent Belgian White beer all summer long without going Broke,Because this style of beer is pretty much my Favorite in the sweltering Hot dog days of summer,when I do have the Money,I Usually spring for Flying Dog's Exellent "Woody Creek"[a Stellar Witbier] With Sam Adams "Summer Ale" being my second choice,but during the work week,I pretty much stock the fridge with Blue Moon's Belgian White.When Poured into a regular Pint Glass,it looks very Inviting,a bit cloudy and Hazy like most wheat beers,I usually get about an Inch of a foamy,Fluffy white head,with some very nice evervesent Carbonation~
Smell~Nice & Pleasent,very wheaty with a hint of Orange in the Background,and a bit Peppery.the Tatse pretty much follows the nose in this case,Wheaty with a nice Orange zest,very Crisp and clean,super refreshing,the low end ABV & IBU's make this a Gr8 Session brew for those lazy hot,Humid days.
This Beer goes ok with Bugers,Dogs,some BBQ'd & Grilled Fare,as long as it is not very spicy or Tangy,not a gr8 Pizza or Wings beer,more of a Pre~Meal beer,a gr8 "Apertif" 4sure,a few of these before the Grub shows up is always Nice;)Cheers & Peace2All.

So I know damn good and well this is brewed by Coors, and that big breweries are the devil incarnate, but I have always liked Blue Moon and their products. I have no problem drinking them and then throwing back some obscure beer that no one has ever heard of before, at least not away from BA. Anyway, I’ve always wanted to do the Blue Moon review because I really like it. Poured from the bottle into a mug, no fruit involved.

Appearance – Pours a super cloudy, orange/gold color with a big head that dissipates quickly and leaves little lacing. Again, no fruit was involved in this tasting, I never order my beer with fruit. Whole other topic.

Smell – Spices, big wheat, a bit of orange. Pretty generic given the style, but it hits the witbiers right on the head in this aspect. Smells just like it should.

Taste – Big wheats, bread, and malts, which is well-balanced by the backdrop of orange and sweet spiciness. I have always enjoyed the taste of Blue Moon, and this time was no different.

Mouthfeel – Clean, refreshing, good carbonation, excellent aftertaste.

Overall – This is a solid brew all around. Good not just for summertime but for anytime, Blue Moon is an excellent “micro” which is brewed by a macro. I’m honestly impressed that Coors came up with such a product, but I even like Coors as a macro product. I would recommend this beer to anyone, and I would drink it anytime. This is a good crossover beer for those unfortunate folks who have not yet discovered craft brewing, as it isn’t too much of a system shock from your standard macro brew, but it is certainly different and unique. Good representation of the witbier style, I love it.

Pours a thick foggy orangey gold, generous and fizzy head, not much lacing at all. Very wheaty and citrusy scent. Crisp and smooth feel, not too watery. Wheat body with citrus. Nice bite to it. Definitely works well with an orange piece, brings out natural spices causing a fairly intense kick

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Enjoyed on tap.

Appearance: Very orangey with about a one-and-a-half finger off-white head that leaves fairly quickly. Nice lacing initially, but weakens as the head fades.

Smell: Sweet, citrusy. Mostly orange with a hint of lemon.

Taste: Very sweet, a bit overwhelming if you aren't expecting it. Drank the first half before squeezing and dropping my orange slice into the beer for experimentation purposes. It definitely augments the orange flavor, but the taste of the beer still shines through. I would recommend using the orange slice if you are really feeling like a fruity drink.

Mouthfeel: Quite smooth that, in my opinion, coats the mouth quite heavily. The aftertaste lingers on your tongue, leaving you wanting just one more sip.

Overall: A quality beer for the price. If I review the beer menu at a bar/pub and I don't see anything that jumps off the page, Blue Moon is my go-to beer. Nothing that will absolutely awe you, but a solid beer nonetheless.

Pours golden and cloudy. It has a nice half inch white head.
Smell is very wheaty. It has tones of citrus as well.
The first thing you can taste is wheat and oats. After that tastes of orange and coriander hit the back of the tongue.
Nice mouthfeel. Smooth at the start with a crisp wheat finish.
Drinkability is very nice. I could (and have) drank many of these in one sitting.

Poured form a bottle into a pint glass

A- Very cloudy golden orange color with about a 1 finger head which quickly dissipated. Some visible bubbles streaming to the top with almost no lacing.

S- Fairly pleasant smell, wheat, some hints of orange and lemon, faint hints of some spices present.

T- The taste was fairly strong in wheat and some orange like citrus with some spices in the finish.

M- Extremely carbonated and fairly light in body. Very drinkable.

O- Overall this is a great lawn mower beer, goes down very easy and tastes pretty good with a little more to it than a typical lawnmower beer.
