This has quickly become one of my favorite beers. Like the guy whose review is just below me, Coors briefly had me thinking this stuff came from a microbrewer. And let me say I'm also impressed Coors was able to make this. This was my introduction to Belgian Whites, and its quickly become one of my favorite beers. The color is a sort of light gold, but on the cloudy side. The head pretty tall and better formed than I would have expected in such a fizzy beer. The smell is very pleasant with some citrus and a little bit of spice besides. Taste is pleasant and refreshing. It's light, with some sweetness, and some sourness that adds pleasant depth, rather than a perception cheap hops. Plus there's a bit of spice in there. Mouthfeel is fizzy and fairly light, though not at all watery. Drinkability is pretty good because this is a light and very pleasant beer. But not great because of the acidity. Hop presence is rather slight since a lot of the flavor comes from spice and other flavorings. I'd definately reccomend this, although I have to admit Hacker-Schorr Weiss was definately better still. It was a surprisingly decent introduction to a new category for me, and if I couldn't find, or didn't want to pay for a bottle of that Hacker-Schorr Weiss, then this would be my choice for someone who's new to beer, or who says they don't like beer.

Can be gotten in literally every bar in my area. I should mention, though, that more students in my area are becoming aware that this is a Coors product.
Appearance: In a glass, it looks exactly how it tastes: orange. Orange set in mouth of glass quickly discarded.
Taste: Orange. It tastes like orange. I can never taste anything else in this beer. It's almost an "orange-juice" sort of orange. I once heard someone compare it to pledge. I do know that the orange fruit they serve with it is extremely unecessary in terms of getting "orange flavor".
I will always have a soft spot for this beer though, because it was my gateway beer. This was the first beer I drank and liked drinking. I very rarely drink it now, finding it way too sweet and orangey, but I do appreciate its role in my beerevolution.

A- Murky orange, you can’t see through it. Fizzy head recedes to nothing fast, leaving
S- Bits of lemon and citrus; coriander spiciness.
T/F- Smooth, light, not much up front, wheat toward the middle and orange on my tongue and throat in with the finish.
Not a bad beer. The light feel is enjoyable, especially on hot days.

White Ale's are my favorite beer, and this is far from the best I've ever had. Goes down smooth enough, but has an odd after taste. I couldn't even finish the six pack, the taste just got worse and worse. Your better off with a Hoegaarden or Sam Adams White for your money.

Blue Moon Belgian White poured a lovely orange with nice clouding and a 1-inch fluffy white head (into American pint glass). The nose was a very clean grapefruit and grass aroma. The taste was great and very refreshing (citrus like, yet not like a soda). All in all a really good ale.

This is a very average beer in my opinion. I poured it in a hurricane glass and cut an orange to garnish it with. It is more tart than other beers I have had and I am not one for tart beers. I recommend it on a cool, relaxing night while sitting by the fire.

Poured a cloudy golden yellow with a quick disappearing head. Smells of orange peel and coriander... tastes like carbonated water with a faint hint of citrus...and some chemicals.. boring. I'd rather have a Hoegaarden... Originally reviewed this beer out of a bottle and gave it a D+ rating... the can is a tiny bit better.

Honestly wasnt sure what I was gonna get when I ordered this beer. Heard the name so I thought to try it. The appearance was shocking,looked like dirty soapy water,but thats good for this kind of beer?. I smelled orange,because thats what was served with it,and continued to influence the beer when I flicked it off the glass. The taste was fruity sweetness,but flat too,even though it seemed to have a descent bubbly top. I felt like I was drinking a cocktail more than a beer. Overall not a bad experience and was worth trying so I know to avoid again in future.
