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

Very cold bottle poured into a pint glass
hazy orange/yellow, foamy short white head
smell is not strong; Weiss yeast, hops, banana, orange..oh wait there is an orange slice in there
Tastes good, Weiss yeast is prevalent but is relative to the overall thin nature of this beer, citrus/orange, cantaloupe
mouthfeel is light, drinkable, Its pretty good at a restaurant with a short beer menu, but I wouldnt seek it out outside of this

12oz bottle into mason jar, best-by July 2, 2012.

Appearance is a cloudy orange-yellow, pours with a strong head (as befits the style) which soon recedes to a more manageable level. Active carb is visible even through the haze, head diminishes to a ring that remains throughout. The Smell is of very subdued yeast and spiciness with some wheat sweetness detected at the end. Taste starts with yeast and spices then a very sweet malt. There is an unpleasant late taste that I must hesitantly call the "macro taste." Mouthfeel is tingly due to the high carb and spiciness. Low weight and a bit watery.

An average witbier, that comes off more like an imitation of the style. Not spicy enough to be a good wit, and not yeasty enough to be a good weizen. Wide distribution and reasonable pricing make this beer slightly above average.

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!
