Goes down easy, but has an extremely weird smell/taste combination. I get reminded of the jelly-ball air freshner chemical smell when I smell it!!

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Look: Very hazy, cloudy golden yellow with a small white head that quickly dissipates.

Smell: Yep, this one got skunked. Stop putting your beers in blue bottles, people! A small amount of spiciness is detectable.

Taste: Mild, creamy malt with faint citrus zest. There's not really any skunk on the nose.

Mouthfeel: Decent thickness, very high carbonation.

Overall: What could have been a pretty decent beer is hurt by the manufacturer's ignorant insistence on bottles that lead to skunking.

Pleasant, light aroma. Floral with some spiciness to it with hints of citrus - lemon perhaps. Tall, thick, creamy white head from a fairly vigorous pour into a weizen glass. Hazy yellow, with slight golden hues. Nice looking beer. Leaves plenty of thick lacing on the opposite side of the glass as you drink. Moderate feel. Lemon and coriander taste, with the floral notes also. As with the aroma, a pleasant taste, if a bit subtle. Just a slight bite with the initial taste that does not persist. Finish is mild and floral and just a bit sweet. A good middle-of-the-road wit. As an aside, the blue bottle is certainly attractive. IDK how well it protects the beer from light.

Very hazy golden hazy appearance with some small sediment chunks visble. A small white head that goes maybe one finger seems to be a creamy packed white head. Nice lacing on the glass.

Smells like citrus and some spice as well. Maybe coriander for the spice. For the citrus it varies from orange to a bit of a lemon smell. Also getting sweet white bread.

Taste is very much like orange peel and coriander. Kind of a creamy malt flavor in there and picking up some slight hops as well.

Mouth is medium and creamy textured. Finish is like a lingering wet finish.

If you like the Witbier style that runs along the Blue Moon line you will probably like this one. This really seems like a French version of Blue Moon. For creativity points this one would go low. For quality of imitation and quality of product this scores very nicely. So go out and grab you a six of this very nice French Blue Moon beer!

Almost a fabricated soapy chemical orange taste, flat and very uninspired.

On tap at R5 Micro Bar in Akrureyri, Iceland. Respectable lighter beer, actually got peach coming through.

Kronenbourg Blanc is an interesting beer, it claims abit citrus aroma which translates almost like Jaffa orange soda drink. Easily drinkable and stable flavours.
