Pours a translucent straw color with a 1-finger white head that quickly disappears.

Smell is very faint--sour yeast and slight wheat and caramel. The taste is honey, orange, sour yeast, wheat with an astringent quality. Mouthfeel is crisply carbonated with a fair amount of acidity in the finish.

This has some refreshing qualities, but the inconsistent flavors and harsh acidity in the finish are a turn off. I thought the sourness evidenced subpar ingredients rather than wanted qualities. (495 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)
