A: Pours a cloudy medium straw yellow in color with some orange highlights and moderate to heavy amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a two finger tall dense light off-white head that slowly reduces to thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a medium sized thick patch and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to heavy amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of wheat and some lighter notes of orange citrus.

T: Similar to the smell, the taste of the beer has moderate wheat flavors with some lighter notes of orange. Very light notes of spices in the finish.

M: Slightly heavier than light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Very subtle hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Extremely easy to drink and sessionable - this is a great gateway beer for introducing folks to a different style than BMC American Adjunct Lagers. Enjoyable and refreshing.

Boy it's been ages since I had one of these. Poured into a Hoegarden glass.

A very surprising orange body color, deep and a mix of light peach color, through a classic unfiltered body. Head comes up creamy and standard, two fingers with some retention. Falls though a little quickly. Not too bad looking, but considerably darker than most witbiers I've had.

Nose is interesting. Orange juice. Not much malt presence or sense of spice. Clean. kind of neutral and inoffensive. A strange hiding acidic sense in the background. Fairly alright.

Palate is pretty much, well, pretty much neutral. Much of the flavor seems to come in the finish. Aftertaste brings some creamy senses of milk, and lots of orange quality. Tang like, with a little bit of fizz, but some decent body to make the flavor come forward. Strangely though, there's no sense of of herb or citrus freshness to this, or more importantly any malt depth.

Overall it's a very inoffensive brew, but for style wise there is so much better out there. Where is the grain behind this? It's beer Tang strangely enough but is pretty easy drinking.

Poured into a weizen glass from a 16 oz. can.

3.0 A: Hazed medium orange color. One and a half fingers of frothy/foamy off-white head. Retention is a hair below average and a short ring of lacing is left.

3.5 S: Moderate corriander with citrusy orange peel. I'm a bit surprised how much orange comes out in the nose without the requisite slice of orange already in it. Dusty graininess, lightly bready, and a mild spiciness. A little mundane for the style, but all in all, it's not bad.

3.5 T: There's a good bit of orange flavor in the taste as well. Enough corriander to keep it interesting. Light bready yeastiness, a bit of graininess, moderate sweetness, mild bitteress. It's not jam packed with flavor, but it does taste pretty good.

3.5 M: Medium body. This has a somewhat rich thickness that you wouldn't expect from a Coors product. Light creaminess and super smooth.

3.5 D: I've always been a fan of Blue Moon and I don't care if I get shit for it. I think it's a superbly drinkable beer with enough flavor to keep you occupied at a bar that serves nothing better.
