Appearance - Pours a clear copper/amber color with an inch thick head that lasts for a minute. Leaves a very nice lacing.

Smell - All I detect is coriander and orange zest. Maybe a hint of caramel as well.. It smells great though.

Taste - Roasted malts, a hint of caramel,orange zest and citrus, with a mild bitterness and nuttiness in the finish. The finish seems to have many brown ale-like similarities.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Overall - This isn't your average amber ale.

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.
