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

Appearance is a very cloudy, golden color. The head, when poured, dissipates quickly but throughout the drink it was present at the edges and left very little lacing.

The smell is soft with a hint of wheat and orange. I know this is the obvious smell but I often drink this beer without the standard orange peel and still get this characteristic from the beer without the additional orange flavor. I think the coriander smell is difficult to pick up on.

The taste is nice. Initially I expect the lemon wheat flavor because of the lightness of the beer but get a nice, pleasant, and light earthy, orange flavor. A lot of brewers like to use the wheat beer to carry their own unique lemon, orange, or raspberry flavor but for me, the Blue Moon really has the market cornered in the orange arena. It has a natural (wheat) flavor balanced with a subtle citrus flavor (orange) that is nice and refreshing.

The mouthfeel is refreshing and light. There is a noticeable carbonation but nothing the produces the gritty gulp.

I have been drinking this beer for years and have always enjoyed it. It has the lightness and refreshing qualities of a true light beer, but it has real flavor and a little kick at 5.4%, though not much. Some people will say this is a summer only brew, but it is 70 degrees in my house right now on a cold March night, so drink away...far away.
