UPDATED: MAR 29, 2008 Re-rating this one up. Had it again and enjoyed it very much. Served with an orange slice (why?). Aroma was delicious fruit and wheat. Flavor was same as aroma. Both held well up through the end of the glass.

Not good. Too wheaty and hopsy. My wife got this on a trip to target. I’m divorcing her tomorrow. Yuck!!!

Draft. Had a sweet citrusy aroma. The flavor, that which could be tasted (not much to begin with), had similar citrus elements. A very drinkable beer, but no notes of distinction.

Blue Moon. Hmmmmm. Sit down at the bar looking for a halfway decent brew out of the meager selection. They got Blue Moon a decent Witbeer. I order. The bring back a mug with an orange on the side, so I throw the orange in the ashtray and continue to taste the beer. A very cloudy light yellow consistency with minimal white head. Wheaty, very citrusy, and spices. And a note to the bartenders out there stop putting oranges on the side of witbeers. I like the taste of the beer and don’t need to dilute it with an orange.

12 oz. bottle. Hazy, light gold pour, looks a bit darker that other witbiers I have tried. Quick fading white head, almost no lacing. Nose is mostly coriander and wheat. Flavor matches the nose, mostly coriander and wheat. While smooth, it does not excite the tongue like better whites. The coriander flavor really hangs with you in the finish, detracting from an otherwise pretty good experience. I am shocked, however, to find out that this is a Coors product - not great, but CLEARLY the best this brewer has to offer - head and shoulders above the other Coors products. NOTE: sampled this back to back with the Hoegaarden White, and the Hoegaarden was so good I may have been too harsh on the Blue Moon. Either way, if you like this beer, nail down a Hoegaarden - you won’t go back!

GREAT beer....I am not really a "fruit" beer kinda person, but this is great with an orange slice. It is a little expensive at the bar ($4-$5 draft), but worth it to try

Given this is coors this is very good! Not a huge flavor, but definitely drinkable. Drank at Old Chicago. Power went out! Halloween! Thought this was some kind of trick. No joking, this was real. Flavor is okay... enhanced by orange. Shouldn’t need that. However, decent by Coors standards. I would drink again if nothing else was avalable. If Coors was the only brand available I would have to decide between Killians and Belgian White. Not terrible.

On tap at Rivers Restaurant, Chicago, IL. Hazy light yellow hued having small white diminishing head with spare lacing. Not sure the head was killed as the result of unwanted lemon slice contamination. Soft carbonation. Light malty citrus aroma (thanks to the lemon slice contamination). Light-to-medium bodied that starts and finishes with slightly sweet malty flavor with some light bitterness. A refreshing, drinkable wheat beer.

Not a very interesting beer in my opinion. Easy to drink, sure, but it leaves something to be desired.
