Had (NOT enjoyed) on-tap @ the Hardshell Cafe in Soulard- Downtown St. Louis. Beer was tapped from a Bright Green Handle w/ "Seasonal- Spring Ale" under the blue Moon sign & poured into a Pint Glass.

Appearance- Pale, Golden color with 1 finger of head. Huge bubbles of Carbonation and no retention on the head. Lace gradually smears down the sides of the glass.

Smell- You can smell signs of the yeast and grain but nothing else... There is an alcohol scent as well.

Taste- There is a bit of an orange/lemon twist to it now but not good for this type of style (I wish they did give me a lemon with this one to mask the flavor!)

Mouthfeel- Light Bodied, Light Viscosity, Watery, and Dull. Nothing makes this beer anything special...

Overall- They really missed the mark on this one. It does have a strong wheat taste but it is going to be a struggle to finish even a pint of this. Blue Moon isn't a bad beer but anything they try to brew otherwise, Honey Moon, this Spring ale, etc. turns out very rough to drink and missing many qualities of making it a decent ale.

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.

A new Blue Moon... Let's see how this one does.

Pours good in the way of a Kristalweizen: About two fingers of off white fluffy head that retains decently from a vigorous pour, and has a clear dark golden color.

In the aroma I can get the citrus qualities, and maybe a hint of floral hops.

The taste... Well not a whole lot of that. Take what I got from the aroma and add a little corn to the mix.

Clean and crisp. This makes for a good warm weather beer. Not too much to ponder here when it's said all and done.

Pours a pale yellow with initially a good sized white head. Head fades quickly. Smells of lemon, orange and grass. Very grainy flavored with a hint of sweetness. Sharp lemon/orange flavors with some grassy hops. The hops are faint but they are there which suprises me a bit. Light bodied in the mouth. Not a great beer but not a bad one either considering the brewer.
