To me, this beer is the zenith in some sort of quest for mediocrity. Enough taste and character that you can find it if you are looking for it, but still reeking of the corner-cutting indicative of mass production. Though drinkable, it is not a beer I wiil ever reach for when given a choice.

This offering from Blue Moon pours a shade darker than straw. A one finger head that dissipates quickly can be observed. There is no lacing to be seen as the glass is emptied. The smell may be the best part of this beer as I could detect notes of orange, bread, and grass. Mouthfeel is pretty average with a lot of carbonation. The taste is very smooth, mostly wheat, without much of the orange that can be smelled. This would be an excellent session beer as it is very drinkable.

LOOK: Cloudy golden orange color with a small white head that recedes to a ring. Looks like an unfiltered wit.

SMELL: Wheat, straw and a bit of orange citrus.

TASTE: Wheat malt and orange peel. A bit tangy with a note of Belgian yeast. Touch of clove and small spice. Little to no bitterness or hop flavor, and remains true to the style in that regard. Even balance. Mild and inoffensive, pretty citrusy.

FEEL: Light to medium bodied and wel carbonated. Easy drinking with lingering finish of citrus and dry spice.

OVERALL: A decent wit, and a gateway beer for many young beer drinkers to get into craft beer. Not bad for what it is, and is an easy drinker.

The beer comes in a bright lemony yellow.

The aroma has a strange funky cheese aroma. Then onto some orange peel underlying.

The flavor thankfully does not follow with that. Orange peel up front, hints of the coriander throughout. A touch of sweetness and wheat in the middle. However, generally quite bland and grainy throughout.

I had this next to Shock Top and it is impressive that this beer is decently better and is more flavorful.

Served at Rosie's East End in Hummelstown, PA.

A: Cloudy copper/orange pour, with a pillowy head. Okay retention, but with minimal lacing.

S: Mild citrus and spice, nothing too exciting.

T: Normal citrus and spice flavors, tastes better than it smells. Impressive for a Coors product.

M: Smooth and refreshing, slightly crisp. The carbonation bubbles flowed the duration of the beer.

D: Good flavor, not too filling, refreshing on a summer eve on the deck.

Well, this was a pretty good session beer. It had a really nice cloudy haze to it. The taste was refreshing, albeit a bit on the lighter side. I could actually drink a few bottles of this while playing cards. It was refreshing... maybe i'm thinking this because i found out it was by Coors. I was really surprised. I guess they could make a decent beer after all.

On tap, minus the offered citrus garnish.

Appearance: Cloudy orange with a fingers width head that quickly disappeared.

Smell: Slightly sweet, perhaps a bit of citrus. Could be tainted by the smoky bar smell so I will bump it up a half point.

Taste: Better than expected but nothing spectacular. Decent sweet citrus flavor follows a wheat start.

Mouthfeel: Good taste at first but does not stick around like you would want a wheat to. Taste comes and goes as soon as you swallow. The thickness is surprisingly pleasant.

Drinkability: I'm going to call this very drinkable. Unlike a lot of one and done micro's, this is something I could have a few of. Feels odd giving a macro such a high score, but being light on alcohol and passable in the flavor department apparently has its perks.

From a bottle, pours a cloudy deep gold/orange with an off-white head that leaves nothing behind once it dissipates. Aroma of indistinct citrus with a bit of yeast. Flavor is a pronounced orange that has some spice flavor like perhaps cloves. Good carbonation and a medium sort of body.

Serving Type: On-tap at the Olive Garden. Enjoyed 22oz

Appearance: Poured a cloudy orange w/ a lovely one finger head. Plenty of carbonation kept ample lacing the whole time while drink. Very nice

Smell: I really got nothing here. A very light wheat....that's about it.

Taste/Mouthfeel: This beer REALLY reminded me of a overly carbonated hefe. Big sweet burst of fruit(banana's)followed by a crisp feel that cleanses the palate and leaves a faint taste lingering on the middle of your tongue. A touch of citric comes through the more you drink it but the carbonation really cleanses the mouth and removes much of the good taste.

Drinkability: It's enjoyalbe...I'd enjoy another one. A lot like a hefe

Appearance: Opaque milky yellow, lots of suspended sediment. Pours with an enormous three finger head that falls surprisingly fast, with no stickage whatsoever. Odd.

Smell: Spice-heavy and somewhat sweet. Orange, clove, coriander. Not bad, a little sweet for the style.

Taste & mouthfeel: Creamy and sweet, medium in body and pleasantly spiced. Very yeasty, with notes of banana bread becoming more prominent as it warms. Not a hint of bitterness, nor any dryness in the finish; this is fairly flatline and a bit too sweet for the style, though it's inoffensive overall. I can see this being a decent gateway beer.

Served at about 40F from a 12 oz twist top bottle into a conic pint glass.

The color suprised me a bit - more orange than I expected. Head starts out tall and fluffy, but dies down quickly to nothing. No hint of lace, and I'm pretty sure I'm keeping beer-clean glasses.

Aroma is subdued, but nothing terrible. Really rather bland and hard to pick out anything particular.

Flavor is much better than the lackluster aroma implied. The orange/coriander is there, with perhaps some extra citrusy fruitiness. Finish is black pepper, finally finished up with a little too much malt sweetness.

Not an awful beer, but not something I will go out of my way to get again. It did match very well with a sweet ginger chicken dish we had for supper tonight.

This beer looks and smells the part, but the taste is stunningly underwhelming. It's as if someone wanted to come up with a beverage that looked like a craft beer and had decided that no one would notice that it didn't taste like one, and they're probably right.

This is a good beer, however I do not see what all the fuss is about there are cheaper and better wheat beers out there. Have paid 5 GBP for a pint of this, which is quite frankly ridiculous.

I picked up a six-pack of Blue Moon at a grocery store for my daughter’s graduation party. I have reviewed this beer before on tap, so I thought I’d try it in a bottle. I poured this beer in to a pint glass.

Pours a straw yellow color and is cloudy (unfiltered). A bubbly two-finger white head is gone quickly and produces no lacing.

The smell is fairly strong, sweet and fruity with citrus aromas, lemon and orange, and some melon scents like honeydew or cantaloupe.

The taste is sweet and fruity, with a bit of a cracker taste to it, and a mild hop finish. The flavors are very well balanced.

Mouth feel is smooth, crisp and refreshing

This is a very drinkable beer, fairly light and smooth, with a crisp thirst quenching character about it. I would certainly drink Blue Moon again, although I don’t know that I would search for it.
