Clear golden amber with fine, bright white head of weaker retention. Forms a decent and lasting film on the liquid surface at least. Lots of flecks and chunks, yellowish tan in color, which tend to congregate at the bottom, but still many in suspension. Smells estery, leaning towards lemons, perhaps a touch of honey. Strong extra virgin olive oil note, I'm assuming some sort of phenol. I really wanted to prove the naysayers wrong here, but the flavor is just not that great. Not nasty, of course, but really not much worth mentioning. But I'll give it the old high-school drop out try! Too sweet! Yes, there's honey, real honey even. But where is the wheat? The malt? Certainly no hops or spices or yeast character to speak of. Ranting aside, it is drinkable. About like a Dos Equis Lager Especial or a Rolling Rock, only sweeter! I will admit that there is orange peel or whatever it's supposed to be barely coming through in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel was a little less of a disappointment. Light, watery, and spritzy, arguably making the sweetness more tolerable. But this is a wheat beer, not a Mellow Yellow! Anyways, cheers! It's refreshing, and I'll drink it again if my options are limited.

Not as bad as all the other reviewers make it out to be and surprised me with its 5.2% ABV! I picked it up 12 pack for 8 bucks and it was well worth it!

Really disappointed in this brew. Slight honey smell, faint honey richness on a sip that lingers for a bit. Sweetness immediately present on first sip. Mouthfeel comparable to an adjunct lager but with honey, and with less carbonation.

Overall, a sad offering from Blue Moon. Travesty even calling itself a wheat beer, as it demonstrates almost no wheat beer attributes. Only positive thing I can say about it is that its sweetness makes it approachable to non craft beer drinkers.

What can you say. It tastes like a slightly different version of the standard Blue Moon. It's just ok but a good BBQ beer when no craft beer choices.

I'm not here to give a usual novel sized review as I typically do. Let's just call this beer what it rally is. An adjunct lager with a touch of honey and citrus. Well balanced, and devoid of off putting flavors.

A true everypersons beer.

Part of a summer seasonal 12 pack, poured in to a schooner.

Pours a bright yellow/gold color, clear, with a frothy white head. Torrents of bubbles rising in the glass.

Something about the smell is not real good. Kind of a funky sweet aroma.

Taste is also not quite there, A bitter sweet flavor up front with kind of a cider-like finish.

Mouthfeel is light and clean, with a dry bitter aftertaste.

Overall a questionable brew. Not something I would have again.
