COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by our brewmaster’s travels through Mexico, our limited summer release is crafted with agave nectar for a subtle sweetness and a smooth, crisp finish.

This brew is extremely underwhelming. There’s surprisingly little taste. The agave nectar creates a bit of sweetness but that’s about all there is to say about it. Certainly not a full-flavored beer but at least it’s not offensive. That’s more than you can say of some of Blue Moon’s other beers.

Sweet and wheaty mixed together don’t really work for me. The beer is much sweeter than others of this line, and it just isn’t good.

Bottle, bought in shop at Fort Lauderdale, FL. Nice beer on a "summer day" in Florida in January! :-)

Nice fresh beer, strong wheat flavor but the agave taste very weak... Not a big fan of Weizen beers but this one is just OK for a while.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. A- Orange, agave, wheat. A- Orange color, clear liquid, white head. T- Orange, subtle agave, wheat. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, sweet finish. O- Not much difference from a normal Blue Moon. Slightly sweet and lacking a lot of flavor.

Couleur légèrement ambrée avec un col moyennement résistant. Nez de malt de sucre et de fruits. En bouche le fait qu’il y a de la goyave dans le brassage de cette bière donne un petit gout différent, mais n’est pas tout a fait délicieux. Un peu trop commercial mais un point pour l’effort!

If I had all the money back I’ve wasted on blue moon and like products, I could go buy something really, really nice for myself this holiday. I keep buying them, they keep being around average, and I keep wanting to move on to the next beer. So agave nectar, may you be the last blue moon I waste my 1.50 on. Clear golden yellow with a large white head. Aroma of agave, salt, lime and toasted malt. Taste is sweet and salty with lime, wheat, malt and spices.

DSG (6106) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Maierovicz’s place. Thanks beerandbeyond. Clear golden. Aroma of cardboard, a bit of fruitiness and some spiciness. Sweet flavor with cardboard, spiciness and a bit of fruitiness (a bit citric). Rather light-bodied.

Tap, pour is hazy yellow, aroma sweet, is a herbal wheaty and definitely the agave comes through and it doesnt really help, not for me,

Bottle: Shimmering golden pour, good clarity with lots of tiny bubbles, and a fizzy white head. Nose is malty, sort of grassey, and a little sweet. At first sip, I’m taken back in awe of the sweetness. A little grassey and some hints of malt; it gets a tiny bit metallic before ending in a rush of sweetness. Must be the agave nectar... I’ve had agave before, but this is way sweeter than I recall. Where is the malt or wheat to balance this out? Too sweet.
