Bought this for my girlfriend when she asked me to pick her up some Blue Moon. I decided to give this a try and write up a review for it.
I've originally tasted the Rising Moon that was out before this and I thought that beer was pretty terrible from memory. This beer however... might even be worse, or the exact same beer for all I can really tell.
Pours a clear pale yellow color with almost no head to speak of.
Aroma is grainy, grassy, slightly wheaty and some odd citrus lemon/lime peel.
I know the previous Rising Moon was brewed with limes and this one is supposed to be orange and lemon but all I keep tasting is lime lime lime!!! There is a slight wheat and plastic aftertaste that just sticks in your mouth for too long. I suppose I wouldn't mind it but it's such a horrible taste. The only reason I'm giving it any points is because it at least tastes like something!
Light body and somewhat flat. Not at all crisp or refreshing or anything it aims to be. All around horrible.

Sort of a pale to medium gold color, this beer does shine brightly though it shows a potential thinness beyond simply being light in body. There's lots of bubbling carbonation rising from the bottom, and it's needed as a foamy head struggles to surface. It does, though, and holds its own better than I'd think. Some reasonably decent spotting is also managed.
The aroma is very light, offering pale malts with some light citrus zest and sweetness both of orange and lemon. There's a hint of rind in there, though I get more the impression of watered-down juice mixed into dusty malts. I've smelled worse in a Blonde; more than anything, it's simply weak.
In the flavor, the weakness comes out to more ill effect than the aroma. It ultimately ends up making this beer taste more like a lightly flavored seltzer water than anything. Dusty malts actually go a touch astringent, it's got some corn husk, and it just goes way too thin and lacking in flavor.
It feels like seltzer water, too, and the best I can say is that at least it's crisp. Even that tingle falls off in the end.
