3.19/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

LOOK: Clear copper color with a white film on top.

SMELL: Wheat malts, bread, dusty musty aroma. Some orange soda like scents eventually emerge as well as some floral hops. An interesting nose.

TASTE: Wheat and a good bit of citrus. Mild bitter hop touches and finishes with a snap of tangy orange peel. Soft citrus skin comes through in the taste. This is a mild ale but the orange flavors grow increasingly evident as it warms. In the summer I can see this as an ideal beverage to drink ice cold out of a cooler during a cookout or something.

FEEL: Medium bodied, well carbonated and spritzy. There is a lingering finish of orange peel and citrus oils that coat the palate.

OVERALL: Not bad, and def drinks easy. For those not fond of oranges, steer clear.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

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.

3.08/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

12 oz. bottle with a June 2014 date stamped on the neck.
Pours clear amber with a large and creamy tan head that has good durability and leaves fine lacing on the glass.

The sweet aroma is malty and musty with hints of orange and yeast..

The flavor is a little subdued but balanced: light bready malts with hints of wheat, orange juice, orange pith and grapefruit.

Feel: Light-medium body with good, soft, medium-high carbonation.

O: slightly above average at best. Refreshing but perhaps best suited for transitional (towards craft beers) beer drinkers.
