Appearance is golden, with a decent head that fades away almost immediately.
Aroma is mild, inoffensive, but not much too it.
Taste is the real issue for me with this beer: I find it way too sweet. That takes away from what should be a refreshing summer beer. It's not refreshing, it's almost cloying (a mouthfeel issue too).

I drank a little over half the bottle, because hey, it was the only beer in my brother's fridge, and I wanted something to drink with my food. But I didn't finish it.

Smells of sweet cereal grains, some other unidentifiable sweetness, maybe some faint wheat. Taste is lightly sweet, cereal, grainy. Very crisp, a bit sticky on the palate. Somewhat refreshing. Overall, nothing too exciting but not bad at all. Perfect for the summer.

S: Wheat, cracker, honey, sweet malts, and a slight earthiness.

T: Cracker, lemon, and honey.

M: Feels like a light beer.

O: Not much to it. Not bad but not good.

Not very good....considered the craft beer option at the local Tilted Kilt.

Best by 10/5/15.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is quite subtle with some grain, wheat, and slight honey aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet grain, wheat, and corn flake flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is decent but fairly boring in my opinion.

Serving type: bottle.

Not a huge Blue Moon fan to begin with. This is the worst of them yet. Stale grassiness that has me checking the freshness date. Pass this one up, it's garbage and a drain pour.

Very smooth, not much going on. Tastes like a great version of cheap beer--very refreshing, but it's almost too simple. That said, that's all I expect from a seasonal. A friendly redneck would drink this beer. Does that make sense? If not, try it and you'll know what I mean.

The most classic Blue Moon if you ask me. I'm a big lover of beer in the summer so obviously this would be my choice. It tastes very wheaty and a bit floral. Another great beer with an orange slice and perfect after a day of work and relaxing on your patio.

So terrible. I work in a beer store and can't fathom how people flock to this mess. Typical Coors abomination.

3.2% ABW (4.0% ABV) Version from Crest Foods in Oklahoma.

Pours to a rapidly receding head and clear yellow gold color. Aroma is weak pale and wheat malt with a hint of floral and citrus. Flavor is clean and weak, can't discern much of what the label promises other than the wheat and some malt sweetness. A blah and mediocre beer. not bad tasting, just lacking any distinct character. It is refreshing and feels good going down. Better than drinking a regular BMC but that's it.

A very simple tasting brew but surprisingly good. Would not seek it out but pretty refreshing after a day of yard work.

Tastes nothing like honey. There's a fruity flavor present. Like peaches.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Smells like a BMC with a little bit more wheat.
Appearance- This is a clear golden color with a large white head.
Palate- A moderate bodied beer with heavy carbonation. This beer has an unpleasant aftertaste that does not go away with each sip.
Overall- Hugely disappointing. This is a very poorly made brew.

Clear pale yellow color with no head. Light honey smell. Tastes like a wheat with honey added. Not too sweet but the honey is obvious. Watered down with super light carbonation. MF is the main issue here and it can't be ignored.

Not much of a wheat beer, the honey and some citrus is there. Not much of a head. Maybe more complex than a regular blue moon but not special.

I thought this was a surprisingly tasty beer especially because I'm not usually a huge fan of wheat beers
