Bottle poured into a pint.

This beer pours a nice hazy yet somewhat transparent orange color. The head was white and built and died fast. The beer smells of sweet orange peel and other citrus. There is a little bit of the husky wheat in the aroma. The flavor is honey like up front with a nice citrus orange taste in the middle. The end finishes with the overwhelming wheat taste and feel and lingers a little on the grainy side. The mouthfeel is a little too carbonated but has the typical slick feel I like from wheat beers. They feel very full in my mouth and seem to almost coat my mouth and this one delivers that.

Overall this is easily the best beer I have ever had that is MADE BY A MACRO COMPANY. I think that because this beer is ubiquitous, crafted pretty well, and an extremely easy drinking beer it deserves some respect. I appreciate Blue Moon but would never buy it unless at a restaurant or bar with a very limited selection. This has been on the market for a long time and other companies like AB has tried to break into the craft beer world, but in my opinion this is the best effort by a major company. Bravo Coors!

From twelve ounce bottle, freshness dated March 26 12.

Pours a cloudy orange/yellow with a thin non-lasting white head. No lacing whatsoever. Aroma is of citrus and damp hay. Taste is vile, drain pour coming up! Too much bitter citrus spice! I have had this on tap once before, and said never again. I gave it another try, bottled this time. It is even worse!
