A decent, but not great beer. Very bitter taste. Itís very much the traditional Belgian White Ale, so if you like the flavor of them, this might not be a terrible choice.

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 12, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2005 Blue Moon pours a hazy, yellow color with big bubbles, a thin head, and a decently sweet aroma. It is spicy, a bit acidic (less so than similar brews), smooth, a bit peppery, and a bit lemony, with a slightly dry finish.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [draft - Dave & Busterís - Homestead, PA] Poured an orange color with a thin white head. Looked more like a hefeweizen than a witbier in my opinion. Faint aroma of wheat and citrus. Slightly watered down taste, mainly wheat and yeast with a slightly sweet citrus finish. Not too bad. Went well with the orange that came with it.

The first time I tried this I was not too impressed, grainy and acidic with very little spice. At the Coors brewery it seemed to benefit from its freshness, still grainy, still atouch acidic but the orange is instantly noticeable while the coriander while somewhat subdued compared to the Hoe palys a nice role. Not spectacular but a decent drink it if you find it beer.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, USA - JUL 7, 2004
Hazy dark yellow beer with a fine fast disappearing head. Weak aroma, tones of wheat and coriander. Also coriander in the flavor along with wheat, yeast and some citrusy. Quite thin and really not very interesting.

very spicy wheat brew. not bad for being as widespread common as it is. possible nice portal to bigger and better things. i liked it before i understood what a great belgium beer meant, and still enjoy one once in a while, but not quite as good as i once thought. will use this beer to give to my buddies when they come over and i dont want to break into my cellar and have my good brew taken for granted, but still want to show them something a little different than mgd.

SkyinBrian (430) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 5, 2004
a good beer that is widely available on tap used to like it a lot when i didnt really like beer because it is not very bitter at all. cloudy. some spice and fruity flavors.

TChrome (1425) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUL 2, 2004
Beer pours appropriately cloudy, though a rather darker golden that is usual for the style. Head is white and dissipates fairly rapidly. Aroma is wheaty with some light yeastiness and an off aroma that can best be described as wet cardboard. Flavor improves upon the aroma with lemon flavor and some light wheat flavor. Average, but with so many good examples of the style easily available, I will probably never drink this one again.

surprisingly decent. plenty of coriander in the aroma, light lemon meringue taste, a bit thin for the style but better than most american wits i tasted and much better than i expected anything on the coors brewery tour would be

Continuing on Belgianight, Allagash is going to be pretty hard to top. Very much like the description depicts. Mellow is a good word nothing is over done. Could be very easily mistaken for a German Hefeweizen without the hops. Looks like one, very nice brew. Iím surprised and pleased this one was better than average.
