3.78/5  rDev +11.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours cloudy with a golden-orange color and sufficient head.
Smell: A mainly wheaty aroma with a noticeable touch of lemon and citrus.
Taste: Crisp lemony/citric taste upfront with the wheat backbone becoming more prominent towards the middle of the tasting. Also present are orange and coriander.
Mouthfeel: Mildly watery in texture, but smooth after the initial crispness.
Drinkability: Quite drinkable. Nothing challenging to the palate.

Overall- pretty refreshing. Not as good as some higher-end witbiers but it certainly holds it own.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a white hea. Tastes like a lighter belgian beer, clove/banana spicy flavors, yet not at the intensity of a real belgian beer. This is a great gateway beer. It may be a spawn of a macro. But I like it.

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

Appearance - A nice golden/slightly amber hue. Small head at first, but disappears shortly after pouring. Nice looking beer overall.

Smell - A nice, fruity scent with a touch of honey mixed in. Smooth an aromatic. A colorful boquet all around.

Taste - Surprisngly good flavor. Some fruity hints in there, with the ttouch of honey in there. A wheat/grain flavor that is very good, and sweet on top of it.

Mouthfeel - smooth! Very easy going in and not overly carbonated or offensive. A good feel in and out.

Drinkability - A lot of pubs run this on special, and I order it often when it is. It can be enjoyed over a few hours without a bad flavor or a poor feeling after drinking a few. Easy going down and easy to maintain.

Overall - Not much expectation from me because I usually despise anything with the name "Coors" on it. However, this was a pleasant beer with a good flavor and good personality. Easily one of the biggest surprises in a beer so far...and it was a pleasant one.

Blue Moon Belgian White

Appearance – 4.0 – nice orange/amber color, slightly hazy as it should be for a wheat beer, Not very much head but hey who care the orange looks badass!

Smell – 3.75 – orange, wheat, citrus, nice breadiness

Taste – 3.75 – orange, wheaty breadiness, papaya, mango, rice, corn, typical “craft beer' dumbed down for the masses

Mouthfeel – 3.75 – light medium, no alc, aftertaste is light/sweet breadiness with some orange in there

Overall – 3.75 – it's alright, I'd get a Blue Moon if it was all I could get (aka I'm out for happy hour and it's 2 bucks... u know).

Seems like a Lot of people really enjoy Slagging this Beer,and call it a very poor example of a Belgian white/Witbier ~and while I will totally Agree there are much better Belgian Witbiers made here in America,[Flying Dog Breweries "Woody Creek" Being one of the Best IMHO] blue Moon's Belgian White [Coors] still is a Very Nice Witbier for the money,[About 14 bucks a 12ver] I Really like the fact that I can afford to drink a Decent Belgian White beer all summer long without going Broke,Because this style of beer is pretty much my Favorite in the sweltering Hot dog days of summer,when I do have the Money,I Usually spring for Flying Dog's Exellent "Woody Creek"[a Stellar Witbier] With Sam Adams "Summer Ale" being my second choice,but during the work week,I pretty much stock the fridge with Blue Moon's Belgian White.When Poured into a regular Pint Glass,it looks very Inviting,a bit cloudy and Hazy like most wheat beers,I usually get about an Inch of a foamy,Fluffy white head,with some very nice evervesent Carbonation~
Smell~Nice & Pleasent,very wheaty with a hint of Orange in the Background,and a bit Peppery.the Tatse pretty much follows the nose in this case,Wheaty with a nice Orange zest,very Crisp and clean,super refreshing,the low end ABV & IBU's make this a Gr8 Session brew for those lazy hot,Humid days.
This Beer goes ok with Bugers,Dogs,some BBQ'd & Grilled Fare,as long as it is not very spicy or Tangy,not a gr8 Pizza or Wings beer,more of a Pre~Meal beer,a gr8 "Apertif" 4sure,a few of these before the Grub shows up is always Nice;)Cheers & Peace2All.

Well, I am not going to give this a rating based on the if you look at who brews it then it's pretty good. I don't care who manufactured this beer, I am convinced after having in the bottle, CO2 pressured keg, and good old keg party tap. If you look at this one in the glass it pours a cloudy orangish gold hue with a creamy carrot tinted head that is rather pleasant in appearance and taste. It's aroma is primarily coriander (orange peel), but the wheat based goodness also comes alive with every inhalation. The taste is a sweet version of a classic style that a mass production company acually put some care into to bring out a decent white beer. For that reason I have respect for this beer, definitely something I would always give a tasting to. Very drinkable this is a great beer that I will enjoy again and again.
