3.29/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a hazy orange-gold; I swirled it, but there was lots of sediment left in the bottle. Head is 4" in pilsner glass, faded to lingering off-white 1/2" foam. Little sign of effervescence, no lacing left on the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Yeasty and bready. Little there. Grain.

Taste: Clean, watery arrival. Hint of sweetness across mid-palate. Citrus on the finish. Whither the hops?

Mouthfeel: Very slight effervescence and slick-but-clean feel.

Overall: Decent example of the style; always a fave, never disappoints, but doesn't really set itself apart, either. Good for parties and happy hours in the summer.

Good summer beer. I keep this stocked for my neighbor. He drinks it with an orange slice. Cloudy yellow witbier color, nice fruity and clovy aroma. Minimal head, avg lacing. Taste is refreshing, nothing strong. Good "lawnmower" quality. I never thought I'd say this...but not bad for a Coors product. Worth a try.

I think that Coors Brewing company did a pretty damn good job for a macrobrewer at making a belgian white with that American microbrew flavor. This Blue Moon pours a cloudy yellow, not quite golden color. The scent is wheat and citrus. Quite a nice scent. My second one I had with an orange, which was nice as well. The flavor was sweet and flavorful. The flavors of lemon, orange, and wheat were quite present. All in all a nice smooth refreshing white beer. For the price and convienience, I would definitely recommend it.

Appearance- cloudy gold, very appealing.

Smell- very sweet and calk full of malt. Coriander is present as well. I agree with the bro.

Taste- delicious, smooth and malted. Very sweet and fruity. (where does the fruit come from? Anyone...)

Mouthfeel- slightly thick when talking American brews of this color, but very pleasant.

Drinkability- very easy to drink, I did a six pack in forty five minutes. All of Coors beers seam to have an easy drinking beverage in mind when creating a beer. A definite quencher. Come summer time and the heat is on, I will be found in a blue haze. (sorry Jimmy)


Very good beer. Easy to drink and equally unique. Often served with an orange this adds a little to the sweetness and also makes the drinking more fun in a corny way. This beer is quite tasty and should be explored if you like sweet brews. Taste identical to Sam Adams White Ale...

12 oz bottle to hefe glass.
A: Cloudly, HUGE particulate, straw and orange, very dense. Creamy head that disippates quickly. Nice lacing.

this is a solid and affordable belgian white beer. can't say enough good things about it really.

appearance- cloudy with a one finger head that hangs around for a while with some lacing.

smell- great floral citrus smells.

taste and mouthfeel- nothing that will wow you but it is a solid taste. nice suttle citrus flavor with a sweet finish, a very crisp mouthfeel.

drinkability- a very easy drinking beer for anytime of the year.
