Pours the usual cloudy goodness. The smell is quite good on this one. Very citrusy with some coriander coming through. Tastes is good as well. Good carbonation and great citrus taste,but not so much that it makes it undrinkable.

A really nice brew. Even though this a Coors brew, it is quite nice. A nice brew to serve at the summer picnics. Introduce some of your family and friends to craft brews with this one. It is easy to drink and very refreshing.

A simple but good tasting beer, much better than the competition (shock top). For Coors to make this they did pretty good. I personally prefer no orange peel added, goes well with just about any food pairing.
Pours golden orange, with 2 finger head, good anytime of the year!

NOTE: I'm editing an earlier review, where I might have let some personal bias creep into the review.

OK. I'll say it. I don't want to like this beer because it is brewed by Coors, a company that has posed numerous affronts to my social sensibilities.

That said, I kind of like this beer. Like another Coors product, Killian's, a 6 of these shows up in my fridge from time to time, courtesy of my wife. I suspect she finds these beers more exotic than the standard macro, and not as pricey as the standard micro. She might be onto something.

The earlier review said:
Blue Moon Wit appears slightly cloudy, gold.

Slight spice to smell and taste differentiates this from what would otherwise be a very ordinary beer. I was thinking coriander? In any event, it is not very bold, so it is easy to categorize this as an ordinary beer.

To this, I will add:
There is a nice delicate sweetness to the malt, I guess it is wheat malt, that you don't find in an ordinary macro. I find it really refreshing. On this warmish spring day, where I am working outside doing the lawn and garden routine, I found myself craving this beer. So I put 2 in the fridge and am enjoying. Hence, increased taste and drinkability in this edited review.

I'll probably never buy Coors products myself, choosing to support a true micro, or at least, a more regional micro (e.g., Leinies, Point), if I am feeling cheap or the selection is limited. Still, I gotta give this one it's due.
