UPDATED: MAY 21, 2005 A good beer that you can find on draught at alot of places. Pours cloudy with a decent white head. A good mix of spices and fruit in this one make it a good choice.

A great beer. Turst me on this one lose the masculine look and try this beer. A great white, very light in the stomach and great berry taste.

Tried only one of these when I was a bit wasted. I remember it was quite tasty and little dark. Would definately buy again.

I give Coors credit for realizing that they need to try something new. Some fruit, coriander, and banana odors. Tastes wheaty, citrusy, fruity, and smooth at the finish. Not bad.

This is a pretty good beer, but I think I am just spoiled by hogaarden and alagash. But, i am impressed considering the fact that it is made by coors and i can find this commonly in grocery stores.

Becoming increasingly popular here in Connecticut, Blue Moon Belgian White is a welcome addition to any tap! Very smooth with a nice wheaty consistency. Cloudy. Decent head. Nice subtle presence of caramel and some banana. Taste is a little flat but is greatly enhanced by the addition of a slice of orange (!) or lemon.

Bottle. Poured cloudy with a decent head. Nice citrus and wheat aroma and flavor. Overall good but there are other wheat beers I would prefer over this one.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2004
Cloudy light amber/orangey color. Sweet, banana/fruity aroma. Wheat flavors, with a bit of citrusy tartness - although it gets smoother and less biting when it warms up. Not bad, but not real disctincitve.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2004
UPDATED: APR 15, 2005 interesting scent, wheat, some banana. First taste, instantly thought bananas the fruit, not the candy. Tastes like a wheat beer, not too original. Smooth and very drinkable.

Nice simmering cloud in the glass. Served to me on tap with a lemon, which suffused beautifully through the top of the beer as I went down the glass. Mild spices that compliment the citrus well. Had at Daisy Buchanan's in Boston, my only regret is that their glasses seemed a bit small. Beer has a bit of radiance to it as well. Distinctive, but doesn't necessarly make an impression if you're looking to hit on people in a bar, I'd imagine.
