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.

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

hey not really all that bad but with most of these Blue Moons price point is too high, better beer for less

A refreshing breer with almost no head. Tastes okay and smells decent.

Nothing special but it is refreshing.

I was expecting something like a Leinenkugel Summer Wheat but was hugely disappointed. All I could taste was honey and hops with no substantial wheat flavor. It was hard for me to finish it. The younger folk at the neighborhood party seems to enjoy it much more than I did.

After a 16 hour workday, it really hits the spot, definitely alongside a burger and some bacon :D The unfiltered taste on the tongue is just like "fuck yeah!" It's smooth, has a full flavor, and I always end up heading to the fridge to grab a second one :D

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Wheat colored, light, yellow amber. Pleasing for a summer brew.
Smell: Not great. Smells a bit like cheaper beers such as Miller or Coors. Very pronounced wheat notes with honey.
Taste/mouthfeel: A bit harsh initially, but the taste softens almost immediately to one of refreshing amber and honey. The wheat is still present, especially in the aftertaste.
Overall: Pleasing in taste, this makes a decent summer beer. Similar to Grainbelt or Leinenkugel's Honey weiss.

Tastes almost exactly like a regular blue moon except a little more of a wheat flavor and a n overwhelming honey flavor that I just didnt care for. Its like someone grabbed a bottle of honey and mixed it with a blue moon. It just isnt a good combination.

Poured from bottle into glass. Appearance is a strong wheat color. Smell is poor with the wheat and honey coming through. The taste is fairly bland with the honey and wheat shining through. The mouthfeel is incredibly smooth though. Very good summer beer, especially for the price this can be picked up for. Compare to Leinenkugel's Honey Weiss. Good summer beer overall.

Had a tasting of this where I work today; not a bad offering, and it's my second in the Blue Moon library, to be exact. While I only had about a shot glass worth of beer (I got a bottle in my fridge, so I'll be doing a rereview soon, if necessary), it's an effective drinker for the season, however, its clove honey taste and rather mild but effective filling overall make this sort of a Blue Moon Light than a really different product from the traditional Blue Moon. Still, there is a nice difference to this beer that's more on-par with a honey beer that's available year-round rather than a limited-batch shandy during the summertime.

Still, when it comes down to the macrobrew Belgian White wars, I got to side with Shock Top, for, in just two of their beers, I could really taste their complexities and their differences, where both of the Blue Moon offerings that should be drastically different are quietly interchangeable to a degree.

The nose was weak and didn't reveal much but soft wheat, honey, Apple and pear. The flavor, though, surprised me greatly as it was nicely balanced and appropriately measured between wheat malt dryness, honey sweetness, apple crispness and even pear like freshness. This is surprisingly complex as it is macro-brewed and by look and scent a bit boring but the flavor delivers a nice bang for the buck.

While I am not a fan of honey, this beer was actually really good. It will definately be enjoyed again on a hot summer day. The head was very creamy looking with nice lace that quickly disappeared from the glass.

Great summer beer. Honey is not overwhelming. Great taste. Easy to drink. Will definitely get it again.

ya know.... I think ya just need the right stuff at the right time... because I KNEW what to expect from this guy, but the very cold, light, easy-drinking nature while I am hot and sweaty and getting ready for the Kings' Game 3 just tasted pretty darned good. I poured it softly so I wouldn't lose any flavor in the head, and I certainly got the corn-piss-adjunct in it, but it was okay. okay for right now, otherwise i'd be urinating on the bottle just about any other time I would drink it. yeah, I guess I can be a 'snob', but i'm a fair one, no? and as much as I abhor that camel piss swill bud light, they have a pretty decent commercial they're playing during the hockey playoffs....

Consumed June 7th, 2014 directly from the bottle by the pool in a friend's back yard, which should be the optimal consumption environment for this brew.

Appearance cannot be rated properly since I drank directly from bottle, so I'm going with "average" since I couldn't tell.

Aroma was indistinct sweetness and a touch of orange.

Flavor was very mild. Almost no wheat taste (that tell-tale, agreeable metallic zing) nor yeast character (soft powdery notes, floral, peppery, bananas, cloves, etc...) which leaves the tongue wandering around, searching for elusive notes of orange (found it) and honey (got it, too). Seriously muted with bashful flavors all around.

Average mouthfeel with moderate levels of carbonation and medium body.

Overall, a pretty pointless brew, in my opinion. I want to actually taste the ingredients, not pound thin beer water by the pool.

Taste/Finish/Body:
sweet, bready, grainy, touch of honey. Some crisp bitterness towards the end, a little lemon-pepper. Finish is very dry, a little chalky. Body is light, dry, a little flat.

Overall:
It's an average beer.

A light hazy colored brew with white soapy froth. Aroma is sweet with lemon, honey and bread. In the taste, lemon and honey. Faint bitterness does little to stand in the wat malty dextrins. Light body with a smooth medium carbonation. Overall, this is a ok beer, it is refreshing in its ways. Not bad.
