Solid beer, really solid. Tastes even better with an orange.

Poured a nice golden amber color with about 1-2 fingers of foam with not much lacing. Has a nice crisp flavor with notes of honey with not too much carbonation.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Clean golden amber, with a nice fine white head and no lace.

Aroma: Sweet honey and malty, with a touch of spice.

Taste: Sweet up front, with plenty of honey and a little bit of spice. A soft and easy-drinking brew, certainly not offensive but not memorable, either. Decent at best.

This beer is quite sweet - not personally what I want to taste in a 'summer'. Can't notice any citrus type flavors at all.

Pours a very clear deep gold with a white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of wheat, honey, and some floral notes. Tastes of wheat and bread with a very sweet honey after taste. Very light and crisp in body with medium-high carbonation. Overall it's not a bad beer for blue moon. Very refreshing just nothing above average.

Clear gold with two fingers of fluffy white head. Retention is fair and lots of partial rings of lace.
Smell is kind of sour wheat beer .
Taste is sweet a touch of orange peel honey and hops are hard to find.
Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation. Finish is lightly sweet and semi dry .
Overall a tasty warm weather beer.

Look - 3.5 - Golden in color, very clear on the pour, with about 1 finger of clear white head. Head isn't very substantive but doesn't get in the way.
Smell - 3 - slight hint of malts perhaps, but not much else.
Taste - 3.75 - Not overpowering, a touch of malt behind it. Definitely not honey, but you wouldn't be drinking this expecting honey to be a flavor I would imagine - I was more expecting a lighter version of the blue moon flavor to be fair.
Feel - 4 - To be fair, I like the way this one goes down. Its a little on the smooth side, as would be expected from a mass brand, but not unpleasant and doesn't leave a malty aftertaste.

Overall - 4 - A good, lighter taste, but not light on body. Could perhaps do with something else in there (say... Honey? Or some citrus or fruit notes). But overall a pleasant drink for a warmer evening.

Pours a one finger white head that vanishes leaving no lace. Nearly clear straw color. Light carbonation and light bodied. Faint honey nose and flavor is light honey wheat. Part of $9.99 6-pak, a 12oz bottle from Hanafords Supermarket Concord, NH.

Not bad at all. I expected some honey favor but there's none there. Interesting. LOL
Crispy and refreshing, not offensive at all. The 5.20% alcohol is really awesome. I love wheat beer and this one is priced below average so why not? I'd say: give it a try!

Pours golden yellow with literally no head or lacing.

Average Summer wheat with little to no honey flavor.

Probably a"one-and-done". . .

Pours a clear light golden color with a one inch head that dissipated quickly and left little lacing. Smells of lightly roasted malts, honey and some floral notes. Taste follows the nose, however the sweetness from the honey lingers. Moderate carbonation, light to medium bodied, clean and crisp.
