Atwater did a really good job of capturing the "Blue Moon w/orange" flavor in this beer. Very smooth and drinkable with tones of coriander and orange peel. Exactly what i had expected.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Cloudy pale gold color with a very thin white head. Aroma is very light with mild hints of coriander and wheat. Flavor is mild as well. Some coriander and orange at the beginning but mainly I get a watery wheat flavor. Some mild dryness and tartness with a watery finish. Needs more flavor.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The name is appropriate ... at least visually. Thin to no head. The aroma is vaguely sweet, tinged with spice. This drinks with a hint of grist, but mostly sweet, Iíd say. (#3743, 11/15/2009)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a hazy yellow-gold with some tiny floaties and an average size diminishing white head. Aroma: I get wheat and oranges first followed by yeast and light hops -- not much herbs though. Flavourís slightly watery and could be more flavourful, nothing bad about it though. Itís mainly wheat, oranges and light spices and with a mild sourness in the finish. Light to average bodied. Itís a fine beer and easy to drink, itís just nothing special.
