Poured from a 12 oz bottle with a Best Buy date of 02/16/15. Aroma has a subdued, slightly stale what character. Medium light citrus notes with some moderate coriander and faint grains of paradise phenolics. Hints of stone fruit esters. Pours a hazy orange with a small, thin head that quickly disappears. Minimal lacing and only faint legs. Flavor is somewhat sweet with a bit of a sweet finish. Some light what notes with moderate orange character. Orange tastes a bit artificial. Medium light coriander notes. Low bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a perfectly fine and boring beer. A bit artificial in the flavor, but more drinkable than a lot of beers I have had from micros. Too sweet for me.

Eh...not real wit..just yeasty coors light. Not good everything taste manufactured including spices. If its all you got, you can stomach this. But 9000 other better brews out there.

Ericular (621) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Aroma is mild, smells just like a bowl of Fruit Loops. This is interesting, since itís unexpected yet pleasant. Appearance is lackluster, with no head or lacing at all. Taste is easy going, sweet wheat with decent Belgian spices. Itís mild and unassuming, but a better mainstream choice than any pale lager Iíve had. Not bad at all, really.

Darwenus (554) - Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Pours a cloudy burnt orange color with very little head. The aroma is yeasty. Maybe a little funky. Thereís a cooked cabbage thing going on. The flavor is better than the aroma. Itís like a diluted version of a pretty average wheat beer. The label mentions orange and coriander. I donít pick up on that. I was given a case of this as a surprise gift, and over the course of a few weeks I drank the whole case. I didnít dump out one single bottle. So, no, it ainít great. But it ainít awful.

(Bottle) A very citrusy beer. Some serious lemon aroma on this one. Maybe good for a hot summer day (I would prefer it to most light lagers) but I think this oneís a pass.

I wouldnít necessarily consider Blue Moon a craft beer. With that being said, itís about the closest you can possibly get to it. Great beer overall, smooth taste, and an amazing aroma

Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Aroma of yeast and orange with a flavor to match. Nothing off putting but nothing extraordinary. Sessionable.

Pours orange with nice head. Generous banana split nose. Lacking body but refreshing in summer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
