I don't know what agave tastes like. I imagine if I had it again I'd be like, that's like that beer I had that time. I liked this beer and the mouthfeel was full. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smooth alternative to the original blue moon. Pretty light flavor and after taste.

Bottle from Rite-Aid: Started off with a thick fluffy topping of foam head while a light copper colored liquid rested below. Aroma was plain and empty with no real noticeable scents other than sweet grain like malts. The drink is just as boring and bland as the aroma had suggested. Minimal sweetness and I am unable to pick up on any of the supposed agave nectar, although, there is a linger aftertaste of sugary sweet cereal and milk flavor. This would be an interesting recipe if this was brewed by a real microbrewery that actually cared about flavor.

UUgh, Whats going on at Blue Moon...oh right, Miller Coors. This stuff is as tasteless as you would expect. I would not be able to tell you that it was anything other than a light, bland ale if I didnt know it was suppose to have Agave Nectar in it. Just like their horrifying Blackberry Wheat crud, they must just pour some syrup into their generic ale and, wa-la, its a new variety. Embarrasing and abysmal.

I donít know why the ratings are so low. This is a really solid summer ale. Itís not terribly hoppy, but sometimes you actually want a sweeter beer on hot humid days. Floral and slightly citrusy, but not so much as the regular Blue Moon. Hits the sides of the tongue with quite a fanciful flavor of sugared thyme and very gentle hops. Brilliant, long aftertaste that clings to the rear palate, evolving from malt to a delightful floral sweetness. A perfect early afternoon beer, Iíd sya.

My pick for our July 4th picnic. Not one of blue moons better brews. Watery light wheat flavor. Iím not sure what the agave added to the mix but I didnít anything impressive out of it.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Caramel, fruity wheat malt, pilsner malt, honey. Very bland, made for the masses.

Bottle. Aroma is boring, i get no aroma. The taste is fine, nothing horrible, but not good at all. Looking forward for a summer brew and did not deliver. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Seems a shame to use an agave plant for something besides tequila, but Iíll throw MillerCoors a point or two for trying a summer variation. As should be expected for an agave nectar-based beverage, this ale is light, thin and sweet -- and well-suited as a summer seasonal.

Pours mostly clear golden with an eggshell cap that settles fairly quickly. Nose involves a fair amount of orange, some tropical fruit, rustic wheat character, a touch of banana, and some light plastic. Mildly sweet and bitter, so balanced in that regard. Medium to full bodied as light as it is with a twangy, grainy finish. Not as bad as I thought (or heard), but still underwhelming. The agave didnít really impart much, which actually probably saved this for me, as Iím just not big into that kind of character, especially in beer.
