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

I poured a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance- Clear golden color with a fingers worth of white head. Very little lacing.

Smell- Wheat with a faint smell of honey and oranges.

Taste- Wheat grain with honey and a light touch of oranges.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied and crisp. Average amount of carbonation. No dry feeling like you get with some honey beers.

Overall- Pretty good, not as good as the regular Blue Moon, But still very enjoyable.

Its a great beer for an ale beverage, not the best,but pretty decent wheat beer and excellent for a Belgian beer

Head is excellent for the most part when you pour it into a glass cup as I did to give it a full observation(Although it disappears fast even with proper drinking methods). The carbonation is beautiful and full of bubbles,but not so much carbonation that it would be impossible to drink. The texture is pleasant.

I would now have to describe the taste in such a way as to be accurate. The taste is like Welsh Rarebit in a bottle. Its excellent. The aftertaste sticks with you for a while and its probably among the better in bottle beers when it comes to the cheaper beer.

The smell of the beer is attractive. The moment your nose smells it, you will want to drink it up. If I had any beer that I would have liked to be introduced to when I started drinking, it would be this one. Although that wasn't the case( I was introduced to many other imported beers) .. but this beer is very attractive.

What a beer! I loved the hint of honey! It was just enough and it was evenly spread out. I wish I could do the same in my tea.
The smell was amazing.
The taste was a 5, but had an aftertaste of a 2.
It looked appealing and had a nice mouthfeel.
I'm not sure why the rating is so low on this website, but I'd like to run it by a few friends to see if I'm crazy... except I wouldn't want to share! This is one of my new all time favorites.
