look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

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%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

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

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

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.

I've seen this in stores, and being a huge fan of weissbiers, I had to give this thing a try. Idiots gave me a frozen glass that I had to warm up at the bar.

Appearance - Straw color, Light color for a wheat beer, even when compared to a Kristalweizen. 2 inch head that disappeared rather quickly.

Smell - Probably the best part of the beer. Smelled of a good wheat beer (clove, bready-wheat, banana, and sweetness). Halfway through the beer, I got this strange aroma that smelled of an astringent adujnct lager.

Taste - OK wow, not what I was expecting. After reading the label and smelling it, I was expecting a good wheat beer reminiscent of Franziskaner. But what I got was an astringent adjunct lager flavored beer. It took all I had to finish this thing. No hops present at all. Reminiscent of UFO Hefeweizen. Not good.

Mouthfeel - Once the initial flavors leave, a slightly sweet adjunct lager aftertaste lingers, that is preferable when compared to the likes of BMC beers. No real aftertaste to speak of.

This thing shouldn't carry the Blue Moon name. It should carry it's father's name (Coor's). This is what i pictured BL Wheat would taste like.

Extremely disappointing beer. Idk why it is priced at where it is especially since this tastes kind of like a miller light with a hint of lemon and orange. Overall really disappointed and needs more flavor like their other seasonal fall and winter beers.
