look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a translucent gold with a moderate head, tiny bits of lace.
Smell:The wheat malt is very up front with heavy citrus to follow. A little adjuncty but what else can you expect from Coors. Still, a pretty inviting smell.
Taste: Goddammit, I hate to say it... its not bad. Wheat malt with balanced citrus. Would be a better summer beer. Not complex, but decent.
Drink: I grew up in Colorado and admit to having peed in the tubing river that Coors uses for their beer. That said, I very much dislike the company, but thought that this was a very good session beer. Sorry for peeing in your river Coors...NOT.

I poured a bottle into a weizen glass.

Appearance- Clear golden color with a half fingers worth of rapidly disappearing head. Very little lacing.

Smell- Very mellow aroma of wheat and lemon.

Taste- Sweet malt flavor with a bit of lemony citrus and some spices.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied, smooth, and crisp. Decent amount of carbonation.

Overall- Not a bad brew, but I would prefer a regular Blue Moon over this.

This is a solid beer.

It pours a clear, golden yellow with an off-white head.

The smell is pleasant, citrusy, with a little wheat.

I detect mostly just light wheat, lemon peel, and carbonated water. And although it is simple, it's much more tasty, refreshing and pleasant than a regular Blue Moon.

Thick white head and decent retention, minimal lacing. Crystal gold body. Extreme floral and grassy scent. Smells like the El Paso desert in the Spring, with a touch of womens perfume and soap. Sweet, hints of corn and hops. Extremely smooth mouthfeel. Goes right down without a trace. Not watery or full bodied, just a balanced mouthfeel that would go great with food pairings since it doesn't put a load on the palate. Depending on your mood, you might mistake it for bland. Floral, corny aftertaste, with crispness that eventually fades and lets the stickiness show. My main beef with this beer is that it's a called a wheat ale, but has none of the characteristics one would be hoping for when shopping for one.
