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.
