12 oz twist-off bottle split and poured into a Sierra Nevada imperial pint.
Jul2511, 5.4% ABV, "Wheat ale brewed with orange and lemon peel."

A - Clear golden straw yellow with a pillowy white head. Decent retention and thin, patchy lace.

S - Corn and grainy malt make the base for this below-average beer nose. Soft wheat aroma but I'm not getting any orange or lemon peel. Mild, mild spice notes.

T - Corn husky with a grainy pale malt base and a touch of wheat. Low spiciness and very mild citrus notes.

M - Light-bodied and harshly grainy on the tongue with a spicy follow-through.

O - Average at best, this might be the worst iteration of Blue Moon I've had. It's just not good.

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
