Served a translucent yellow with a thin white head and an orange slice, the orange is nice for appearance, but I decided to remove it. A really soft and sweet aroma, slight citrus and even slighter spice. The flavor was sweet and slightly spicey, with strong malt flavors. The body was good, the beer smooth, but it seemed to be a little light on the carbonation, perhaps due to the slice of orange. Overall a good beer, but I’d rather have an Oberon, a Whitsun, or a Zoomer Wit.

Bought a 22oz bottle and poured into a tall wheat glass. Deep orange with a short lived soapy head. Aroma mostly of sour wheat and a touch of citrusy sweetness. Great orange flavor, smooth and wheaty. Adding an orange slice with the peel really activates this beer chemically. It becomes brighter tasting and spicier.

Appearance - Dark orange with that great cloudiness you see in unfiltered ales. Not much of a head on this one.

Smell - Orange zest is pretty powerful; it smells a lot sweeter than it tastes.

Taste - A little more mellow than the smell. A little spice with some sweet orange. Some bitterness would be nice here to balance things out.

Mouthfeel - Just right: light but not watery. Very refreshing.

Drinkability - I could kick back a couple of these on a summer night with some barbecue. I don't know if I would want more than two or maybe three due to the sweetness.

Blue moon

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.

A- Hazy opaque yellow orange with large thick white head. Head dissipated a bit, but was still respectable and left some sparse lacing.

A- Orange citrusy aroma with light wheaty malt smell.

T- Lots of citrusy orange flavor, much more so than other wits I have had. A bit of coriander. Wheaty aftertaste.

M- Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Gives me a bubbly mouth feel sensation.

D- Quite drinkable. A good bet for bars that serve mainly BMC. Some places stick an orange in it, which kills the head, but is good in it's own way.
