A nice light bodied brew that brings on an authentic honey taste with hints of orange peel and citrus then ends with a bIscuity like finish. Not bad for blue moon and the macro company that it represents.

Purchased as part of a summer variety 12 pack. 12 oz can. Sept 21 15 on the bottom

Pours near clear very light honey amber, larger bubble head stays pretty well and leaves an imcomplete film and some minor larger bubble lace.

Plastic sniff....hmmm...that's never a good sign.

Sweet and again kinda artificial tasting. Some honey, but mostly sugary fruit juicy sweet. Near cloying. Minor hop drying on huge rear side.

Avoid

Poured from bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Light clear golden color with a white head that lasted only a few seconds. No lacing left on the glass, and a lot of visable carbonation.

Smell: Grass grains and some sweetness.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Light bodied and smooth. Some mild bitterness and a slight honey after taste that did not last long.

Overall: Honestly, it taste like they took Coors Light and added honey to it. It is not a complex as other Blue Moons that Coors makes. It is enjoyable and I do like the Blue Moon and Coors beers, just seems like they really didn't put a lot of effort into this one.

I was expecting something like a Leinenkugel Summer Wheat but was hugely disappointed. All I could taste was honey and hops with no substantial wheat flavor. It was hard for me to finish it. The younger folk at the neighborhood party seems to enjoy it much more than I did.
