Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a light golden color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading to leave a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is biggest of a grassy, clover, and lemon smell mixed with a light wheat aroma. Along with these smells are some very light honey and biscuit aroma as well with just a hint of yeast.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter and crisp flavor with some wheat and a slightly doughy taste. The sweeter flavors are mostly of a honey nature, but also have some flavors of a more sugary sweetness. A bit of lemon comes to the tongue more toward the middle, with the wheat and doughy flavors lessening at the expense of a light biscuit flavor. With a light grassy taste coming to the tongue at the end, one is left with a sweeter but yet somewhat crisp flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side. Both are rather nice for complementing the sweeter flavors all while keeping it more on the crisp and refreshing side.

Overall – A bit on the sweeter side but actually rather crisp and refreshing and a pretty easy going summer style brew; just what it is meant to be.

Pours a clear pale yellow with a nice head. The lacing is average and is not well retained. Nose of Belgian yeast over a light honey sweetness with a touch of citrus. Almost medium bodied with a strong level of carbonation that imparts a nice effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is that of a classic wheat ale, but is quite muted. Light citrus over light honey with just a barely noticeable touch of spice. Nice crisp finish that finishes clean.

Pours a golden, ever so slightly amberish color with a 2 finger white head that hangs around for a bit leaving little lacing in a 16oz pub glass.

Smell is not impressive with a little bit of a malty smell and maybe a little bit of honey.

Taste is of the malts and honey, but not very impressive. Was looking for much more flavor.

Mouthfeel is creamy, velvety with not much to it.

Overall, I would drink this if it was all I had but I will probably go for the traditional bluemoon before I bought this again.
