I was pleasantly surprised by the wonderful taste of this beer. I was expecting to get honey up front, but no. The flavor of this beer is very good with the honey contributing to the back end of the swallow. I was unable to find any orange peel flavor what so ever. The smell, look and feel is typical for a ale. This is a sweet ale, there is almost no hop bitterness at all. All you get is a wonderful toasted malt character with that typical ale tangy, fruity note. The hops may have a slight prickle to the back end but it's almost indistinguishable. This beer is a great entry point into craft beers simply because it's very close to general American taste profile. Sweet, no bitterness.

Look: Clear yellow with little to no white head.

Smell: Not a whole lot there. Some wheaty malt, a bit of hops, a tiny smidgen of honey.

Taste: Extremely mild, like an adjunct lager without the corn flavor. Sweet and slightly malty with no bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Very thick and mildly carbonated.

Overall: Surprisingly boring. The taste is far too mild for its own good.

The beer is clear, pale gold no real head, slight carbonation. You can defiantly smell the honey and the wheat aromas, only problem is it reminds me of my hand soap. The taste profile is very light. It has a light wheat taste with a very slight kick of the honey on the end. The beer is watery.

Totally golden American beer-like color. Lots of carbonation. Medium snow-white head. Very light traditional lager-ish aroma. Nice smooth taste and I do get a touch of wheat. Pretty light beer but then it's supposed to be - it's a summertime beer.

Dark gold color, slight white collar that fades quickly. Good carbonation and some fleeting lacing. Very faint beer aroma. Good beery taste with a slightly sweet aftertaste.

You can definitely taste a distinct wheat flavor with a slight honey after taste. I personally found the wheat flavor way too over powering. I was only able to make decent progress drinking it when I started eating fruit with it. I guess I understand why blue moon is typically served with an orange slice. The scent was a pleasant light wheat scent. Good carbonation level made the beer feel light but not obnoxiously bubbly. Overall it was a decent beer, just not my favorite.
