ALLOVATE (2419) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 8, 2014
Into its own glass it produces up a misty, highly effervescent yet headless sunny orange. Aroma is dominated by lemon zest, lemon cordial concentrate, buttered white bread and something reminiscent of overly ripe, fell cumquat. Watery thin and smeared by a carbonic acid bite that is unshakeable. Cardboardy malts dominate the mid-palate whilst it leans towards sour malts in the finish. Crisp, short-lived, thankfully. There is a hint of sherbet in there. Nothing really here at all. Forgettable! (12fl.Oz, BB 29/09/14, Dan Murphy’s, Currambine)

Cor laranja turva, com espuma de baixa formação e persistência. Aroma cítrico e de caramelo. No sabor dulçor médio e cítricos ao fundo. Médio para baixo amargor com pouca persistência. Seca ao final. Já tomei várias witbeer melhores. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Flasche) Es hat eine dunkelgelbe Farbe, ist unfiltriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist säuerlich, hefig, etwas Banane und Blaubeermuffins. Der Geschmack ist prickelnd, süß, hefig und mit etwas lakritze und samtig. Der Nachgeschmack ist samtig und süß

One of those getaway beers. Had this many times during my transition. Friendly and inviting in just about every way. Plenty of character without being the least bit aggressive. Not really craft but not a bad beer.

I always thought blue moon tastes like toothpaste. It’s not bad, it’s one of those beers that isn’t really ever bad and with an orange it’s pretty refreshing. Not my favorite because of that toothpaste taste but it’s not the worst out there by any means.

Een witbier Belgische stijl, maar ik ben sowieso al geen fan van witbier en en dit is dan nog eens een minderwaardig witbier.

You have probably heard that saying Blue Moon is better with an orange. The reality of this beer is that without the added orange, the flavor of the beer is "bland" at best. It's not a terrible beer by any means but it's definitely not a beer to write home about. Blue Moon is an average beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I like this, and chose it over other Belgium beers that I like, for instance Hogaaarden or even Leffe. On price. and because it does what it says it does. It is slightly more than, but not much of, a hat tip to the Witbeer style in my opinion. So on price, and because this isn’t a disaster I’m happy to say that this 6 pack will be replaced by another as an unchallenging quaffing drink for the early evening sunshine. and perhaps as a roadie....
