poured from the bottle into a Weizen glass

A - Pours a straw-gold capped by a one-finger astringent head. Streams of carbonation can be seen rising from the bottom of the glass. Head is gone half way down the glass.

S - Really not much upon opening the bottle save a little bit of wheat malt and tiny amount of orange peel. Smell becomes a bit more pronounced in the glass and open up a bit touches of honey love as promised.

T - Starts off fine with honey and wheat malt. In the body the honey really takes over and almost seem sickly sweet in contrast to the light hops and wheat backbone. This dichotomy grows as the beer passes over the back of the tongue and hop notes become more pronounced. Honey, orange rind and stale wheat malt finish.

M - On the heavier side of light bodied with substantial carbonation. Fizzy and slightly creamy as it passes over the back of the tongue, this is actually the best part of the beer by far.

It tastes about like they just poured Honey into the standard Blue moon. This ends of being more of a bad thing as the coriander is lost and replaced with sticky sweetness that almost seems out of place. The decent mouthfeel is the only redeeming quality of this beer, which I suspect will never purchase again unless it (again) finds its way into a variety pack on sale. Life is too short to drink mediocre beer. (1,357 characters)

Purchased as part of a summer variety 12 pack. 12 oz can. Sept 21 15 on the bottom

Pours near clear very light honey amber, larger bubble head stays pretty well and leaves an imcomplete film and some minor larger bubble lace.

Plastic sniff....hmmm...that's never a good sign.

Sweet and again kinda artificial tasting. Some honey, but mostly sugary fruit juicy sweet. Near cloying. Minor hop drying on huge rear side.

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

Poured from bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Light clear golden color with a white head that lasted only a few seconds. No lacing left on the glass, and a lot of visable carbonation.

Smell: Grass grains and some sweetness.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Light bodied and smooth. Some mild bitterness and a slight honey after taste that did not last long.

Overall: Honestly, it taste like they took Coors Light and added honey to it. It is not a complex as other Blue Moons that Coors makes. It is enjoyable and I do like the Blue Moon and Coors beers, just seems like they really didn't put a lot of effort into this one. (616 characters)

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. (273 characters)
