This pours a semi-clear amber color with a slight off-white head. There is a mild scent of wheat and orange. The flavor is fairly citrusy but is less creamy and has more of a raw orange juice flavor than regular blue moon. Better than the average macro-brew but it still isn't as good as the original. Finishes with a little bit of a tang taste.

very disappointed with this beer. labeling was just a gimic. went on blue moon web site, and of course all they have is positive posts, and i could not even post my reveiw. one suprising fact is that they say one of there brewmasters was schooled in belgium. that has to be a lie.

Sampler bottle.

It pours a deep amber with a nice head of foam and very good lacing.

It smells malty, bready, with a light note of some hop citrus.

The taste is malty but not overly sweet, grainy-of bread, slightly nutty, almost no hop bitterness. Dull.

Not offensive but not something I'd turn to. I'm glad I paid 0$ for the bottle.
