look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 oz.

Pours a deep clear reddish amber. Off-white head dissipates quickly.

Smells of mild citrus tartness and some sweet wheat malt elements.

Flavor is of orange blossom honey, coriander, apricot and orange zest over a standard wheat malt base.

Medium body with some stinging carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

I've had a number of Blue Moon seasonals and special releases and, for the most part, I've found them to be average at best, but this is actually pretty good. Highly drinkable with an enjoyable flavor and character. I could drink this again no problem. I think it gets a bit of a bum rap for being a Coors beer. It's really not half bad.

Pours more of a dark golden color then amber. The head dies pretty quick with a spot of lace here and there. The smell is a very light carmal, strong citrus and kinda just plain. The taste is a little better, a little more toasted malt with a stronger citrus taste. Mouthfeel is thin to slight medium. Not very great but I have no problem drinking it.

3.38/5  rDev +10.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: gold with a pretty good size head.
Aroma: orange and slight fruity smell
Taste: Very strong orange taste especially compared to normal blue moon which I think gives off a slight orange zest, malt, wheat note. Not balanced all that well.

Served from a bottle and poured into a pint glass.
