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.

First review! I've been reading reviews for a while now and figured i'd give it a go.

A- Mostly clear with dark orange tint. Poured into a beer mug and left a very small head.
S- Strong smell of citrus and lemon with an unpleasant skunky odor.
T- Tastes of citrus that is overpowering with a moderate bitterness. After taste of wheat which is quite nice.
M- Light on bubbles and carbonation
O- Overall I think this beer would do just fine on a hot summer day but when other options are present I would skip on the Blue Moon Summer Honey Wheat

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of honey, some wheat. Taste is mild, bready, some honey, not a lot of flavor. Feels light in the mouth and overall is an easy drinking beer but nothing special.

It's a zesty beer, overall great for summer. The color is a beautiful and deep gold. It is refreshing and somewhat tart as well. Great buzz after a few swallows. I would buy this beer again but it's definitely not on my favorites list. I would recommend trying it over regular Blue Moon, but expect less of the orange-y taste.
