The stuff is awful. There is just no other word for it. It looks good, but that is where it ends. Smells like staw-corn-piss mixture, nasty coors based yuck! I guess it did not help that I drank a Westy 12 before this, but even if I did'nt, this beer is the pits. Taste is exactly like the smell is and like if it could actually get any worse...the taste goes down hill as it warms and ends with a genuine used toilet water taste. I purchased a 12 pack of the collection including Summer, Regular, Farmhouse, and the Agave Blond, and all of them were equally disgusting nasty beer. The color was different between them all, but other than that, all taste nasty. I just can't get past that nasty wet liquid corn taste ... it is repulsive. I am not totally against Coors as Coors light would rank a 5 against this nasty-ass shit.

Good for drinking after mowing the lawn. Too bad I hate mowing the lawn.

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.

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.

Pours a pale, watery yellow with a white head that dissappears so fast you better not blink. Lace, what lace?
Smell is missing in action. Just the faintest suggestion of malt, nothing.
Taste is better with some malt, some hops and a sweetness that must be from the honey.
Medium bodied, lighter effervescence than I expected. Nothing to recommend it though. Regular Blue Moon is preferable. Somewhat warming after 1/2 a glass.

Tastes almost exactly like a regular blue moon except a little more of a wheat flavor and a n overwhelming honey flavor that I just didnt care for. Its like someone grabbed a bottle of honey and mixed it with a blue moon. It just isnt a good combination.

This is one of the most difficult beers to drink. I felt like I could spread if over my toast in the morning. Not one part of this beverage reminded me of beer whatsoever. I felt like I was choking down spoonful after spoonful of straight honey. Maybe I'm not into overly sweet beers. This is beyond overly sweet though. Two people together couldn't finish a 6 pack of this and it was a hot day trapped on a bus. That says a lot.

A-Pours a honey color with no head or lacing.

S-Sweet, malty, with a hint of honey.

T-There is some wheat flavor, but its mostly just bland with a sweet finish.

M-Thin and watery.

D-One and done because it was too sweet for me.

Not a beer I would recommend. Of all the beers I have had in the style it is by far the worst.

Wow, only the 2nd review of a beer that must be getting a lot of circulation. What gives?

Poured chilled in tall ale glass.

A: no head, clear yellow color; decent carbonation; no lacing
S: stench at the first pour, smoothing out after a few seconds into a very thin aroma of macrobrew
T: really flat flavor; sweet, low hopped; it's basically blue moon with a prominent dose of honey; but the underlying ale is listless and uninteresting
M: flat in the mouth

Overall, not worth spending much time with.

Welp, as long as my roommate keeps buying and enjoying Blue Moon sampler 12 packs, I'll keep reviewing them. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint.

Head? What's that? This one pours a very pale golden color with huge carbonation and absolutely no head. Say what? Aroma is grainy and almost skunky, with just a bit of wheat on the back. Again, say what? This came from a covered 12-pack that went right into the fridge. There was no chance for this to go off. The taste is at least a little bit better than the other aspects, the honey is really front and center, it's a very sweet beer. There's a bit of wheat on the backend, along with a bit of graininess. Too sweet.

The mouthfeel is smooth to begin with, then some aggressive carbonation hits the tongue. The drinkability is fairly poor due to the sweetness, especially in what's supposed to be a "summer" beer. Overall, this is the second failure in the retooling of Blue Moon's seasonals. The base brew and Pale Moon still remain solid enough, but the seasonals? Give em a pass.

this beer is yellow with a slightly orange tinge. poor head retention and this beer is crystal clear.

this beer really just smells like corn, or maybe that the 'noble hop aroma' but this beer kind of just smells like a cheap lager.

tastes alot like corn too suprisingly enough. but there an odd honey flavor there. this beer has a stickiness that i have never come across before, its kind of lick like oil. very strange. slight hop bitterness. but overall this beer tastes like corn.

i would weigh it in to be about a thin-medium mouthfeel. crisp finish. slight flavor of honey and hops sort of lingers.

this beer is more like a cheep lager than anything. that honey flavor is strange though. i wonder what chemical they are using, because lets face it honey is WAY too expensive an adjunct for big time brewing. i sort of imagine that they tasted standard blue moon with their new honey flavored chemical and thought too themselves, "hmm this tastes so good we will be able to get away with increasing the percentages of corn and rice and this will mask the loss of flavor."

So terrible. I work in a beer store and can't fathom how people flock to this mess. Typical Coors abomination.

How did this win a GABF gold medal, pale fizzy golden, bright white head, speckled scattered lace. Aroma has cooked veggies and other cereal grains, with a mild citrus and honey blend. Flavors are cloyingly sweet, who wants to drink something this sweet. Crushing flavor of grains, mild citrus, and sharp honey sweetness actually making me gag. Mouthfeel is sickeningly sweet, cloying light to medium bodied high carbonation, induces a gag reflux. Overall I can't finish this beer, why is it sold in 12 packs, good lord it's horrible.

A: Liquid lemon drop. Fizzy soda pop head builds and then recedes quickly.

S: Really not much of an aroma, some light cereal grain notes, subtle honey sweetness, a tinge of citrus.

T: I think there’s some honey. I think there’s some citrus zest. But, I can’t quite be sure. At the end there is a pleasant and mild residual sugary sweetness.

M: Canada Dry ginger ale.

O: They should call this mellow yellow. More soda than beer.

Poured into nonic glass.

A: appearance is a fizzy pale yellow, clear, thin white head, minimal retention, no lacing

S: the nose is very faint. All I detect is some mellow wheat character along with some corn. This is incredibly bland... I really have to search for any aroma at all.

T: taste starts off with faint sweetness, perhaps a touch of honey, then I get a grainy and bready wheat profile. A mild citrus at the end. Again, very bland. This tastes closer to an Adjunct Lager than a Pale Wheat.

MF: light body, high carbonation

O: very underwhelmed by this. At least the standard Blue Moon is a fair representation of its style, this one falls short. I would say this is drinkable because it is very light bodied and goes down easy... but then my question would be, why waste drinking on something so bland?

Served in a pint glass with the orange slice of course.

1 finger of white head that faded down leaving a bit of lace. Color is a slightly hazed golden orange.

Aroma: Fairly similar to blue moon. Wheat, coriander, spice, lemon zest, and orange peel. The honey flavor is very artificial.

Taste: Much like the nose, but very bland. Typical wheat beer flavors with a fake tasting honey.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and spritzy. Light bodied with a medium to high amount of carbonation. Ends dry.

Overall, a very boring wheat beer. Fake tasting and bland. I'd choose something else.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a little head that quickly fades to a thin lacing. Smells bland; grains with very, very faint honey notes. Taste is grainy, metallic, and just a hint of honey. Mouthfeel is light and moderately carbonated.

This is nothing special. Hardly memorable.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Smells like a BMC with a little bit more wheat.
Appearance- This is a clear golden color with a large white head.
Palate- A moderate bodied beer with heavy carbonation. This beer has an unpleasant aftertaste that does not go away with each sip.
Overall- Hugely disappointing. This is a very poorly made brew.

A - pale straw in color. decent sized white head, fluffy. leaves a good amount of lacing. visible carbonation. spot on for the style, looks promising enough.

S - metallic. adjunct-like aroma. grainy. strangely no presence of wheat or honey.

T/M - really tastes like an adjunct to me. no real trace of wheat or honey or summer for that matter. grainy, pale malts. light hint of citrus. light bodied, moderate carbonation.

O - I could see this being enjoyable for someone looking for "Blue Moon Light" but the promised flavors just aren't there. skip this.
