look: 2 | smell: 1 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

12oz bottle poured into a shaker pint glass.

A: Pee yellow. The only way to describe it and the only thing I thought of when drinking it.

S: It smelled like it had gone bad. Sour with a hint of sweaty socks.

T: I did not taste honey at all. Perhaps the pelt of a bee but no honey.

M: Uninspired. The carbonation kept it afloat but the lack of any taste did not inspire me to keep this in my mouth longer than I had to.

D: I would not get another one. The smell and taste were and bad and there is certainly no honey taste in this at all

I have been a member of this site for quite some time, and the only reason I chose to review this particular beer was to inform the masses as to how horrendous this beer is.

I must admit, my introduction to Belgian beer came way of Blue Moon, and I absolutely loved that beer. Ironic, since it's really an American interpretation of the real thing. It made me try the originals, such as Westmalle, Hoegaarden, and so on.

Onto the review:
Appearance - Not too bad; a opaque blonde/brown combination.

Smell - Quite a sweet smell. How misleading.

Taste - I cannot explain it. All I know, is that it made me want to hurl.

Mouthfeel - Not good. Minimal carbination. That doesn't bode well for this kind of beer.

Drinkability - THE last time I will ever have this one, and I have five more to go! Anyone want to buy 'em off me?

Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a thick rocky white head that sticks around awhile and some lacing. Smells of wheat gluten and some sweetness and maybe some orange peel. Taste is terrible. Bitterness blended with sparkling water. Terrible beer. Mouthfeel is thin. And drinkability is poor because flavor is terrible.

1.8/5  rDev -41.7%
look: 1.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.5

Looks a shade darker than standard adjunct lager yellow. Head can be huge with a firm pour, but fades to nothing quickly and leaves no lacing either.

Smells like an adjunct lager... honey and some faint whiffs of coriander, too.

It seems strange, but honey is by far the most prominent flavor. This beer is cloyingly, artificially sweet. The spices do not complement the other flavors at all. Whenever I got a hint of the coriander-like spice that seemed to hover in the background, it just seemed out of place... and just gross, to be honest. None of the flavors go well together here. Horrible, horrible beer. I couldn't taste any orange at all. Honey Moon pretty much tastes like an adjunct lager with a lot of honey (and I mean a LOT) and a weird concoction of spices added. An abomination even for an American Pale Wheat Ale, and it gets even worse as it warms.

The carbonation is too weak and the mouthfeel comes across almost syrupy because of how inappropriately sweet it is.

A- clear golden yellow with an expansive although short lived cap of loose generic lookin white foam about the same in appearance as coors light but with double the staying power. lots of medium sized bubbles rise up from the bottom. a couple tiny patches of lace hang on to the glass.

S- smells like coors light with honey and a touch of orange zest. pale malts, a little bit of thick wheat vapor and nothing more. maybe coriander which i don't think is even in there. i'm building a conspiracy theory...

T- honey sweetness from start to finish. taste is again... coors light. i know the silver bullet well, and this honeymoon definitely contains some rocky mountain coldness. orange peel is pretty much non existant even to give a quick au revoir at the finish like the label promises.

MF- about as full bodied as coors banquet beer and somewhat syrupy thanks to you, honey. sticky lippy and sugary cheeky as well. beatch.

D- not an enjoyable brew for me. too sweet and sugary to be thirst quenching and would probably make me feel like shit if i chugged one on a hot day. similarities to coors light in every category lead me to this conclusion-- master brewers in golden colorado, high in the rocky mountains where trains fly and chicks ski in bikinis, found themselves with an overabundance of clover honey due global warming and the invasion of africanized honeybees. rocky mountain scientists discovered that killer bees can only be killed by... you guessed it, a silver bullet. not wanting the sugary gold to be wasted, it was loaded onto a flying train and transported back to the brewery. the formula is as follows: 9 parts coors light, 2 parts blue moon belgian white ale, 1part clover honey. stir vigorously. and the code has been broken.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Poured a bright golden yellow with a super thick foamy white head, good lacing and lots of retention.

Smell was sweet honey and yeast notes.

Taste was a thin light malt body with a heavy honey flavor a touch of yeast and pepper, very sweet with just a hint of trace hops.

Mouthfeel was light and thin.

To much honey sweetness for my taste, and not enough beer taste.

1.95/5  rDev -36.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 1.5

Appearance- a clear yellow with moderate bubbles, slightly white foam head off the pour, very plain in appearance

Smell- lemon citrus smells, slight wheat, clove, orange and a bit of honey on the nose, strong citrus wheat dominates

Taste- lots of wheat and citrus, orange lemon and clove, with a wierd spiceness to it, I found slightly strange finish, overally strange lemon and wheat flavor, odd to me mostly, not impressive

Mouthfeel- heavy smooth and soft

Drinkabilty- Unenjoyable to me not one I will be lookin for again just to much of that fake citrus flavor to me and to much sweet honey, couldnt imagine having more then one of these with the odd after flavor it has on the finish

Like a bad lager mixed with some honey syrup. My first impression of Honey Moon was that it doesn't really taste like beer. It's more like a really bad light cider mixed with artificial honey. The honey flavor really isn't all bad, but the grainy off-flavored malt and non-existent hops kill it for me. I'd like to give it a lower score, at least compared to real beers and the style, but it's definitely not at quite the depths of something like cheap malt liquor. The aroma is disappointingly weak. The appearance is poor at best. The beer is an odd color, a light sickly yellow, with an awful fizzy head that immediately dissipates to nothing. I generally don't care about appearance, but some of these big mass-produced beers look very odd, especially the sweet ones. The feel is way more cloying than it should be, particularly for a beer made with honey. Drinkability is low, but I can get through a glass when it's cold. A pretty bad beer.

"Hey try this one...we just got it on." That's what the bartender said right before he told me he can't give it away.

Looks good so it can't be that bad, right? It filled the glass with the typical hazy yellow-straw color I would expect. Nice head that even left some lacing.

The aroma was sickly sweet. I got the honey, wheat, some spices...but the sweetness was way to strong and there was a bit of sourness to go along. Weird.

The flavor explains why they can't give it away. It tasted like a bad bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Sweet, sour, cinnamon...it's all here. Like the milk went bad sitting in the bowl too long.

Average mouthfeel. I don't see how anyone could finish this one. Way to sweet for me.
