355ml bottle at the Frog and Fiddle. Pours hazy yellow with little head. Aroma is wheat and yeast, quite funky. Taste is more gentle, wheaty, a little bitter.

Started the fruit beer craze with this brand a few years ago...good taste but a little bitey compared to 312...so many other crafts now but Blue Moon and Coors Light is always a good choice

Damn I wish I had seen the Coors on the can before I paid. I love wheat beers usually they are quite tasty and special, this is not much of either. First off wheats usually pour with a fluffy head, this went plat as pee on a plate ASAP Smells OK a bit weak, looks OK Taste , hmm not much Pretty underwhelming , now what do I do with the other can. On the upside it is way better the the usual stuff the try and pass off as beer.

355ml bottle bought at Q Club in SoHo, Central.

Cloudy, hazy straw orange colour with a layer of yeast sedimentsOne finger head with off-white foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Good sticky lacing with fizzy carbonation; Quite fragrant aroma of light malt, with moderate wheat, light tartness, light coriander, light orange peels, sugar, bread and muddy yeast; Mid to light sweet taste of light malt, with strong wheat, light tartness, orange notes, ligth coriander, strong carbo, molasses, spices, biscuits, strong yeast, very light lemon, very low bitter hops and thin grass; Mid to light body. Slick palate; Mouth Feel is light maltyness in a thick, slightly soapy background. Wheaty but not really tart. Touches of oranges and coriander, strongly carboed with soda feel. Fairly sweet with moderate spices. Cheap muddy yeast like those from Rogue Ales. Iffy… Hoppiness is no aroma. Spices, very light lemon and thin grass in taste; Bitterness is very low for an abrupt, very low astringent wheaty finish; Fairly dry after taste. Light orangey and very low bitter to mouth.

Comments: This one has fair amounts of orange and coriander, but the wheatyness isn’t assertive, and it suffers from slightly soapy taste and poor yeast. Good idea ruined by sub-par ingredients. Not recommended.

Blue Moon Belgian White is just not that inspiring to me. It’s a very heavy body for a wheat beer, I feel very full from drinking one. Even with an orange garnish, it lacks the flavor that you’re looking for from something that calls itself craft. That being said, it’s not really a bad beer. I can drink it, it has a pleasant taste, I have good memories with it, the finish with an orange is kinda nice. It’s just not great. I think 3/5 is about right. Maybe a touch high, but its what I have for now.

Wheat ale has a smooth start. Follows with a slightly bitter swallow. The aroma and finish are clean with a little snap.

Aroma is something sour and citrus. Hazy yellow liquid with minimal head. Taste includes some citrus notes, light sweet and little bit bitter. Overall a good refreshing beer.

12-ounce bottles poured into a weizen glass. Beautiful cloudy unfiltered look, tall head, typical wheat beer flavor. Not bitter at all.

Nice refreshing wit.
Unclear golden color with a fine white head. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium body and an ok carbonation. Mellow sweetness. Fruity, some yeast, citric and some spices.
[Bottle from Systembolaget web order in Sweden]

Apple cider-like, golden and cloudy color. Aroma of citruses, citrus peel, herbs (coriander) and maybe a dash of lemongrass and yeast. Soft carbonisation. Very drinkable beer, although its aroma quickly vanishes - smooth finish, as it says. Refreshing witbier, I must say
