Appearance: This Blue Moon incarnation pours an extremely clear straw color with about a finger of snow white head. Retention is below average, as is the lacing.

Smell: Light breadiness, lime peel and lemon peel.

Taste: Breadiness and some wheat malt, light citrus (lime, lemon, orange).

Mouthfeel/Drinkability: Very light body, high carbonation. Overall, this beer is pretty poor. I normally try to cut Blue Moon stuff a bit of slack, but I can't on this one.

Pours a clear, very transparent straw color. Big fluffy white head dissipates slowly. No lacing.

Smells of yeast, and some musty malt. Some heavy bread, but all very faint.

Tastes of malt and bread, a little sweet, and a hint of grass. Not much after taste.

Mouthfeel is thin, with some yeasty bread notes. A somewhat dry finish.

Well, first time to have this and I'm not impressed. Expected something like Hoegaarden. Not!

Wow, can't believe I spent $7.99 a sixer for this trash. Someone should be ashamed.

Hmmm... I bought this Spring Blonde Wheat Ale for my girlfriend. Gotta say im not too impressed.

It's not a terrible Wheat Ale but it has literally nothing identifiable about it.

I could be drinking a Coors Light and not know any difference.

Definitely would not buy again.

12 oz single from Roths, West Salem store. $1.30
Pale yellow, looks like a lager..with a large frothy white head.
Aroma? carboard like a cheap lager to be honest.
Taste thankfully is not cheap lager..but cheap watery wheat with a small tine of citric peel.
Palate is not as bad as expected..has some small amount of body.
Pretty bad really even for Coors.

This brew pours a very clear and light gold, with a tight, thin white head that amounts to some decent lacing. A grainy nose is met with a little wheat aromas and the barest hints of orange and lemon. The flavor profile is much of the same, with grainy, husk-like malt blending with slight wheat, orange and lemon notes. A medium-high amount of carbonation rounds out this light bodied ale. After the great caramel maltiness of the Full Moon Winter seasonal, this Spring release leaves the pallet refreshed and renewed.

Pretty weak for a 'wheat ale.' poured into a tumbler the head reaches the top and dissipates very quickly. Orange-y yellow body. Smells yeast-y, sour, citrus-y and a little apple-y. The taste is grain dominated with hop bitterness. Very thin, a little gassy. Overall, not too pleasant.

As far as weissbeirs go this is not anything special. The mouthfeel is reminiscent of PBR or MGD, not how a wheat beer should taste. The beer has little to no body to it. The only redeeming characteristic of this beer is the smell, of course that could just be the lemon I added to it to make it tolerable. Not as bad as a domestic lager, but not worth the price, considering that it goes for the same as a Sam Adams or equivalent microbrew.

Pours out light, decent clarity, especially considering this is a wheat beer. Maybe they didn't use much of it, or maybe there's some centrifuge or whatever that word is. Started 1" but the retention was all napoleon blownaparte. After it settles into a dark golden color.

Aroma had some weak ass lime like the kind you get out of the plastic bottle.

Taste had a weird bitterness, lack of texture for the wheat. Carbonation through the roof. Club soda and lime blended with mineral water.

This is a turd.

Poured a pale straw color with little head on it. Smell is faint wheat and malt. Taste is average - kinda weak. Not a lot of wheat taste. Tastes cheap. Very light bodied. Not a bad tasting beer just nothing to it. Not worth the price at all. I will not be buying this again.

Pours out fizzy yellow, but has nice clarity especially for a wheat beer. Big head, quickly leaves. Aroma wasn't the nicest lime I've ever come across. Seemed artificial.

Taste was metallic lime. High carb. I can see why they don't make this anymore, was never good in the first place, but then again, if people drink Bud Lime a Rita, shit, this blows that out the water.

Appears bright clear golden body with a bright white head, forms thin speckled lacing scattered around the sides of my glass. Aroma has some sharp wheat notes with hints of sweet fruit notes. A touch of citrus peels and grassiness going on as well. Flavor hits with a marshmallow like cremay sweetness with hints of citrus peel bitterness in the finish, seems like a wheat infused cream ale really. Mouthfeel is light bodied, carbonation is moderate, overall drinkability isn't anything to write home about. It's actually hard to drink more so than any golden beer should ever be.
