Pours a golden orange in color with one finger of the whitest head I have ever seen. Leaves very trace amounts of lacing. Smells of orange peel, Lemon, And a heavy amount of wheat. Tastes very orange like. If somebody would have poured this into a glass for me and told me it was a light orange juice I would have believed them. The mouthfeel is a MASSIVE knockout punch of wheat. The wheat dominates and it loses the orange flavor. Overall, I don't like wheat ale's, But this is a good summer beer that I'm sure anybody could easily drink.

Poured from bottle to a standard pint glass.

Appearance was a pale orange, slightly hazy. 1" head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing behind.

Smell was heavy on the oranges and bread. I didn't get a whole lot else out of this besides those two.

Taste was similar to most other witbiers I have tried - it followed the nose. Heavy citrus notes. Didn't enjoy the mass-produced taste that this beer had. Yes, obviously I'm aware that Coors makes this beer, but maybe I'm just becoming a bit more picky than i used to be. Taste was not very well-balanced and lacked the complexity that you can find in many beers for this price.

Mouthfeel was quite enjoyable. I am a huge fan of IPAs, and this beer had the crisp bite that a lot of IPAs and even cheaper ales have. This is definitely something that I have been searching for in a lot of witbiers, so it is great to know tht it exists - I'd just like to find one that was a little more balanced.

Overall, I try, as I'm sure many of you do, to avoid mass-produced beers. But this was not that bad. Upsides to to this beer were the smell and mouthfeel, but it was severely lacking in the taste department. I am sure that this is not the last time I have a Blue Moon, and i certainly will not turn one down if offered. cheers!

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a hazy light golden orange with a finger width head, poor retention, and a sparse lace around the edges.

Smell - Smells of wheat, a faint milkiness, and a slight spice.

Taste - Follows the nose; wheat, some milkiness, subtle orange notes and some faint coriander spice on the back end.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Leaves a nice tingle on the tongue.

Overall - This isn't a bad witbier, but it's no world beater by any stretch. Decent flavor; tends to get boring after a bottle or two.
