Of course its not the best out there. But as far as "mainstream" beers go this is my favorite. It’s easy to find and beats the pants of bud and miller and all that crap!

Pouts a light golden with fast dissipating white head. Fruity, floral, lemons in nose. Cloves prominent. Citrus tasting. Not a bad beer, especially considering the brewer

The aroma is a light spice coupled with hints of oarnge. Blue Moon is cloudy and light golden in color. There is a light spicey oarnge flavor and the body is medium.

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 25, 2005
Bottle poured a cloudy yellow. The spice in this beer came through a bit more than any other taste, but there were some fruity orange notes in there. Fairly well balanced beer with a decent amount of carbonation to give it a bit of zest.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2007 Beer is hazy yellow with white head. Aroma is light honey with some orange. Flavor is fairly bland, light citrus and spice. The light body is lifeless and thin.

How can you make a white beer with almost no taste? Refreshing on a hot summer day, with a bit of orange juice in the background. Almost want to put ice in it and call it a beer spritzer.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - SEP 19, 2005
Pours a nice hazy yellow color. Decent aroma of orange, spices and coriander. Has a slight tartness on the palate with some spicey notes. Body is smooth somewhat full bodied. Finish is quick and dry. A refreshing beer.

Bottle at the Brickskeller (and a million other times because somehow I haven’t rated this one yet): Slightly hazy yellow with a bit of an orange tint. Medium white head sticks atop the beer and provdes some nice lacing around the glass. The aroma is estery, showing off more clove than banana, a hint of corriander, spice, and light fruit notes. Taste is spicy (corriander, clove, pepper) with notes of banana, floral hops, toast, and a bit of wheat. Light-medium bodied, excellent medium carbonation, tiny bubbles that really cleanse the palate.
