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.

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.
