Picked up one of the Brewmaster Sampler packs from Harris Teeter on an impulse buy.
Pour is clear golden, with a slight tinge of amber in the center. Head is minimal with minimal retention as well. Not cloudy at all like other Blue Moons.
Smell is very similar to a cheaper lager, but with distinct hints of corn and honey.
Tastes just as it smells, refreshing carbonation with good sweetness from the honey and good corn flavor backbone. Very interesting sweet honey aftertaste as well.
Mouthfeel is decent, seems to coat well while still sliding down like water.
Overall, definitely a good summertime/hot weather drink. Slides down like water with good refreshing carbonation and flavor. However, not really my type when I reach for a brew.

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.
