Nice color and head as well as a good aroma for a Belgian white. The flavor, however, leaves more to be desired. Softly malty with just the slightest touch of clove and orange. Very summery and a decent introduction to the style, but I wish it were a bit more robust.

Anyone who buys beer for social events knows that there are two choices: dirt cheap light beers that you drink not to enjoy, but to "crush", and higher quality inexpensive beers that still might not taste good, but leave your guests with the impression that you give at least half a damn about them. Blue Moon and its derivatives fall into the second category. This one, being the flagship beer of Blue Moon (read: Coors+), can be found in anywhere there is running water and electricity. I admit I've never smelled it because I don't want to be the guy at the party who freakin' smells a beer. The taste is mild wheat with a touch of sweetness. If I close my eyes and use my imagination I can make some citrus and spice appear. Not much besides breadiness, but it is a good breadiness. There is no industrial quality to it that you typically get from mass-produced beers. No complaints about the carbonation or mouthfeel. I might even say that I enjoyed it (a bit). Of all the wheat beers I've had, this is certainly one of them. It's hard to feel enthusiasm for a common wheat beer (it would be like getting excited over sliced bread), but for what it's worth, this is one of the better macrobrews.

My favorite feel from almost any beer I've had! Taste was pretty good, but the feel and look were the highlights for me. It was really crisp, with the right amount of bubbles. Great!

L - Poured from a 12 ounce can into a pilsner glass at around 55 degrees. Huge head on aggressive pour. Head slowly dissipates. No lacing to speak of. Hazy light golden color.

S - Citrus scent is font and center. I get a juicy scent as well. A little light grain malt. Sweetness on the back end.

T - Taste is much more subdued and less in-your-face citrus. The citrus scent is balanced out with the light hop flavors. Mild grain malts.

F - Mouthfeel is very good. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

O - Overall this is an enjoyable beer. It’s no wonder Blue Moon is so popular. To me this is one of the better beers for enjoying outdoors. Very refreshing, but has more to it than other macrobrews. I’ve somehow avoided this one for years, but I think this will be added to my summer and camping beer rotation.

On-tap; hazy bright orange. Modest wheat/malt breadiness and a good dose of orange peel; the nose delivers some fruity citrus character but the body and palate is more flat and basic. Decent.

Purchased as a single bottle from The Fresh Market for $1.78. Poured into a nonic pint glass. Served sans orange slice.

L - Hazy goldenrod, with a quick-to-dissipate two-finger pale white head.
S - Faint orange peel. Hinting at some sort of spice. Wheat.
T - First off, crazy well-balanced! Starts off on a chewy wheat note, and continues to a coriander finish. Notes of very light caramel throughout.
F - Smooth. Oily on the finish. Medium-light body, with medium carbonation. Chewy. Easy-to-drink, and refreshing.
O - Not bad. Not the first time I've had this, either. This is probably the tastiest beer you could bring to a party and not look like a douche. A great lunch beer. It's everywhere beer is sold, too - so bonus points for that. I'll definitely buy this again, but I won't really go out of my way for this. It's my go-to for beer runs and BBQ parties.

Nice overall beer and easy to understand the broad appeal. A little fruity with hints of orange and spice. I enjoyed it with a mango/chicken burrito at a local Mexican restaurant and it paired really well.

Pours well with a small head of foam. The head dissipates rather quickly, and leaves very little lacing. The color is a darker orange with a cloudy haze. The aroma is certainly sweet with hints of fruitiness and very little hoppy aroma. The taste compared to the aroma is less sweet, with caramel grainy flavors and hints of citrus. An enjoyable brew, but I find the look and smell promise more than the flavor supplies. The flavor I would typically associate with Belgian style ales is not present with very little phenolic flavor.

I’m not fond of Belgian Whites, but I tried to be fair in rating this, comparing it to other Belgian Whites.
