Pours a hazy orange with creamy white head.

Smells okay with some fruity, spicy notes.

The taste is sweet and mild but really lacks depth. Supposedly modeled after Hoegardenn but falls very flat.

The mouthfeel is smooth but thin and its drinkability is hurt by the fact that it is uninteresting.

note: A year and a half ago I would have said this is one of the best beers ever, but what did I know then, nothing. However this beer showed me then that there were more out there than AB, Miller, and Coors (I found out later that coors made this). So I think this is the one that helped me bridge the gap from nothing to something. Although I'll admit I wasn't old enough to be drinking it and shouldn't have known better.

side note: I'm now a bartender and wonder what the fascination with the orange slice in this beer is. I know it makes it cool but...nevermind.

Finally tried this beer that a couple of my aquaintances order regularly. Not again. Unique, cloudy, glowing hue (maybe not unique...I'm not sure, this is my first witbier) which begins promising, does not ultimately deliver. Very sweet, orange-juice sort of flavored malt; just a little flat with a hard-to-put-my-finger-on-it taste I ultimately pegged as piña colada. Full mouthfeel (though still flat) makes way for a gentle rise of vapors at the finish I would expect more after downing a shot of liquor. Kind of a *blech* finish to it all. I really didn't enjoy this beer all that much at all.

Bottle poured into glass.

A – Poured into glass, but swirled last 1/3 before pouring rest into glass. Very dull and cloudy. Deep yellow, almost the color of wheat itself. Large cap (could be due to the swirling ) but dissipated pretty quickly without much trace except some lacing on top of beer.

S – Wheaty, orange peel, lots of citrus mixing together. Sweet and mild.

T – Citrus, mostly orange. Wheat. Light taste.

M – Carbonation is mellow but some tingles at first. Very smooth and a light bodied. Hints of different tastes, but nothing extravagant. Feels refreshing and finishes the same. Little on the watery side

D – Excellent session beer. One of my personal favorites with pizza and hot wings. Bars like to put a slice of orange on the edge, which helps bring out the citrus even more.

This beer seems to exist to prove the point that the big boys COULD brew a halfway decent beer IF they choose to do so. Its a rather innoffensive little Wit, perfect for a hot day of grilling out on the deck...

Appearance is well above the macrobrew average, with actual color and a bit of haze in a - hold on to your hats, unfiltered macro brew! Little smell comes through, but notes of fruit pop now and again. Taste is acceptable, this is clearly not a style-defining or bursting Belgian Wit, but it is recognizable. The relatively high score is a nod to it's coors heritage - I want to try to encourage adolph to brew more beers like this and fewer like Aspen. Beer is easily drinkable, due to it's lack of agressive traits. One could easily drink several in a sitting, if only the taste provided some justification to such behavior.

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.
