One the one hand, I hate the fact that this is touted as a craft beer when it is, in fact, brewed by Coors. On the other, it's actually pretty darned good as witbiers go.

I've had this both bottled and on tap and really there's not much to choose between the two - it's a bit on the thin side but at the same time has the typical witbier citrus/coriander flavours. I still don't 'get' why I get offered a slice of fruit when I buy witbier - fruit has its place, but not in my beer!

It seems to be fairly ubiquitous, even in the UK, and is definitely a creditable alternative to the likes of Hoegaarden and a fairly low-risk way of getting into witbier in general.

Definitely recommended.

Blue Moon holds a special place in the refrigerator of my heart. There is something that is very satisfying about sipping a blue moon with a squeezed orange slice floating around the rim.
This is one of the few beers that my girlfriend and I are both willing to share a pitcher of.
A rich and extremely smooth flavor that strongly hints of orange peels, backed with a faint note of hops. This beer is bright enough to enjoy on a hot summer day and rich enough for a cold winter evening.
In my opinion Blue Moon is the very best of the major brand's "craft beer" niche. The fact that Blue Moon is a main stream beer does not detract from it's obvious quality and pleasant attributes. Blue Moon is a work of fine quality and artistic craftsmanship.
