Aroma is wheat grain and a hint of fruit and honey. The flavor is citrus, wheat grain, a hint of the honey and a mildly tart finish.

Another Blue Moon product. Let's have a look-see.

Looking like : There's minimal hiss from the breach of security that is the bright yellow bottle cap. The head pours a small 1 finger and eventually settles at a small ring. The body of the beer is actually very pretty - it has hues of honey, gold, and fields of grain. I'm probably being over poetic with the color, but it really is nice. I'll bump this up a half point or so.

Smelling like : Freshly opened box of wheat thins, pretzel, touch of honey, and trailing behind are slight shades of coriander and hop. Medium strength.

Tasting like : Delicious. Wow, maybe one of my favorite Blue Moon offerings. A wheaty, pretzel-like flavor, some spice, light hop, with a drop of honey at the end. Slight burn from carbonation and alcohol that makes the finish pop.

Feeling like : Light to Medium bodied, very carbonated, ends slightly dry and nippy.

Overall : I'd have this again. This was actually not funky (like a lot of Blue Moon specials), and incredibly true to its title. Recommended.

Refreshing taste for a blue moon, but as you'd expect, it's a little thin and has a slight metallic taste. Nothing out of the ordinary for a Coors product. Makes a nice refreshing beer on hotter than sin summer days though!

I got a six pack of bottles from a local store. It seemed to be well-kept and was well-within its date. However, it had a strangely metallic taste, which I later noticed even impacted the smell. I tried it both in the bottle and in a glass, and it retained this quality. It seemed to go away as I got farther down the glass, so maybe it was just a bit of oxidation. Anyway, the true flavor of the beer is pretty tasty, nothing to complain about. However, the honey simply doesn't come through, and without that, which was the main draw for me, it comes across as a far weaker and less robust product than the Belgian White. Kind of just like a wheaty, full-bodied macro.

My favorite Blue Moon by far, as the subtle touch of sweetness makes this beer perfect for hot summer days. Very drinkable.

Appearance is golden, with a decent head that fades away almost immediately.
Aroma is mild, inoffensive, but not much too it.
Taste is the real issue for me with this beer: I find it way too sweet. That takes away from what should be a refreshing summer beer. It's not refreshing, it's almost cloying (a mouthfeel issue too).

I drank a little over half the bottle, because hey, it was the only beer in my brother's fridge, and I wanted something to drink with my food. But I didn't finish it.

Smells of sweet cereal grains, some other unidentifiable sweetness, maybe some faint wheat. Taste is lightly sweet, cereal, grainy. Very crisp, a bit sticky on the palate. Somewhat refreshing. Overall, nothing too exciting but not bad at all. Perfect for the summer.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle.

A: Pours a light gold with a thin white head. Little retention and lacing.

S: Wheat, cracker, honey, sweet malts, and a slight earthiness.

T: Cracker, lemon, and honey.

M: Feels like a light beer.

O: Not much to it. Not bad but not good.

Not very good....considered the craft beer option at the local Tilted Kilt.

Best by 10/5/15.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is quite subtle with some grain, wheat, and slight honey aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet grain, wheat, and corn flake flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is decent but fairly boring in my opinion.

Serving type: bottle.

Not a huge Blue Moon fan to begin with. This is the worst of them yet. Stale grassiness that has me checking the freshness date. Pass this one up, it's garbage and a drain pour.

Very smooth, not much going on. Tastes like a great version of cheap beer--very refreshing, but it's almost too simple. That said, that's all I expect from a seasonal. A friendly redneck would drink this beer. Does that make sense? If not, try it and you'll know what I mean.

The most classic Blue Moon if you ask me. I'm a big lover of beer in the summer so obviously this would be my choice. It tastes very wheaty and a bit floral. Another great beer with an orange slice and perfect after a day of work and relaxing on your patio.
