Into a pint glass:

A: clear blonde colored body, three finger worth of foamy white head after thirty seconds dies to film of a head, some foamy lacing graces the sides of the glass

S: wheat, lemon, light malts

T: sweet through previously mentioned flavor

M: medium, sessionable, some light harshness on the tongue, no aftertaste, yet a sweet finish

O: this is a beer is just a tad above average to me. Maybe not something I would rush out to buy but I think I would have it again

The beer poured with a thick 3/4 inch head but settled to a thin head moments later. Left moderate lacing through out the drink. The beer has a classic golden hue.

The smell is average. A hint of wheat but a little skunky too. There is nothing else there...no balancing sweetness or opposing citrus.

The flavor is okay, better than the smell but nothing to make me want to buy more. I taste the wheat base, there is very little malt flavor...in fact, there is almost no other flavor! But the wheat flavor is mild and finishes softly.

The mouthfeel is fine, not too carbonated and not too thick or thin, right down the middle.

Overall this beer is average to me. The smell and taste are not memorable, the beer is not that strong (5.4%) but I think it is smooth finishing and has some flavor to it. Would not recommend on a night out with friends but I am not going to thrown it under the bus driver from New Jersey either...

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped JUL0912-CO5101620. Sampled on March 8, 2012. The best part about this beer is the way it looks with its golden yellow color, busy carbonation, clear clarity and small head. Beyond that the aroma is rather bland with a biscuti-like character and little else. The body is about right for the style as it falls into the light-medium range. The taste is also biscuit-like with a slightly bitter ending. I think it could have been better.

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a nice clear golden color. There is a billowy just off white head which fades quite fast to leave a thin white head on the top of the beer, but very little lacing on the sides of the glass

Smell – Citrus notes are most heavy up front. The larger of the citrus is orange with is mixed in with a bit of lemon. There is an ever so light bready-wheat aroma as well. Overall the aromas are quite light.

Taste – Malty wheat sweetness and caramel are the first flavor to meet the tongue. It is rather surprising from the nose which is stronger in the citrus. The citrus in the taste comes more toward the middle and the end and is actually quite light. It is a very smooth and subtle taste transition, although the taste does lack much of the complexity of the other blue moon brews as well as other beers of similar style.

Mouthfeel – The body is of light to medium thickness. It passes the tongue very quickly. The carbonation is a bit on the high side, but good for the style and body type. It’s feel makes it very easy to down.

Overall – The beer has a nice flavor, but for the most part is rather one dimensional. It’s refreshing and one for a hot day perhaps.
