Pours a transparent straw color with negligble head in spite of the vigorous carbonation. Aroma is bare and unappealing. Mouthfeel is perky on account of the carbonation, but the flavor is thin and watery, tasting of dilute, mass-produced wheat flavoring and mild cleaning solvent. This tastes almost like a Coors Light but with less purpose or identity. One of the most watered down beers I've tasted, and utterly forgetable if not for its inadequacy.

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.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a wheat beer glass.

This? This is a wheat beer of some sort? There's nothing appearance-wise to seperate this from macro lager 52. Clear golden color, three fingers of white dense head that quickly fades, all that stuff. The aroma? Ugh. No. How does this smell so awful? It's basically just a super-cheap aroma. Hints of wheat, Pledge, and something that might have once passed for hops. The taste on this? Corn. Honey. Sticky-sweetness. It's passable, but just barely. I wouldn't really like another. The mouthfeel is thankfully thin, and the drinkability is alright. This is not a good beer. This is not a good beer at all. I'm fairly fond of the base Blue Moon, and Pale Moon is alright, but their seasonals aren't really all that great.

Appears a very clear golden yellow with a disappearing soda head, which is sort of the exact opposite of what I expect on top of a wheat ale. Texture is very thin and watery, at least the carbonation is lively, but again that reinforces the soda notion in my head. Smells very much like the lemon-orange medicinal oily aroma from a Wet-Nap that has been soaking in a glass of diluted tonic water. Seriously, it actually does smell like that. Flavor is thankfully(?) a lot blander than the nose would have you believe, coming across as a sort of generic ghost of a wheat malt mixed with mushy stale oyster crackers and a twist of citrus. I'll be avoiding this one in the future.

1.9/5  rDev -32.4%

12oz bottle poured into a New Belgium globe glass

It pours a nearly clear almost light amber color, white head, minimal lacing and not lasting head. Just a unappealing wheat beer.

Aroma of very faint wheat and some citrus. That's about it. Its a very faint aroma.

The taste just is even more boring. The citrus goes away and you are left with a wheat flavored beginning and then finishes oddly crisp like a light lager. It's even more boring than regular Blue Moon.

I handed this to my wife blindly and her evaluation was 'It tastes like wheat and Coors light.' I could not have said it better myself

Let me first start off this review saying that i am a fan of Coors banquet beer in relativity to other "big domestics". That being said, i am not a fan of their blue moon products. Especially this particular ale.

Appearance- Poured from a bottle, it presented a pale color with a thin soapy head that dissipated almost instantly. Heavily carbonated with little head was the first red flag..

Smell- Stale. Overwhelming notes of barley and malt. Miniscule notes of "orange and lemon" as advertised.

Taste- Sour. Malty with an artificially citrusy aftertaste. Bearable, but not enjoyable.

Mouthfeel- Could barely feel my mouth due to excessive carbonation. I felt like i was drinking a talking rain tainted with malt liquor.
