Not bad! Pours a cloudy orange blond with a medium white head. Nose is spice, wheat, and light notes of fruit. Definite spice, and yeast along with more wheat on the tongue. The finish seemed to lean on the sweeter, fruitier than expected side. Very good for a macro brewed beer.

I've lived in Colorado for three years now and this is the first time that I have tried this beer. And I like it! There's nothing here to jump out and grab you, but it has a clean, pleasant taste and is thirst quenching. Nothing wrong with that!

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2005 This murky, orange/brown beer smells a lot like brown sugar. Sweet orange taset followed with a yeasty brown sugar aftertaste. A bit better than I remember. There’s a bar in Lancaster that serves these poured over an orange slice which is pretty good, too.

this beer poured cloudy yellow with thin white head. i didn't detect much of aroma. the taste was a weak mix of spice and fruit. this is an ok beer, slightly better than most of the tasteless big name macro-brews.

smell alternates between decent fruity and plain rank. murky yellow-orange. however, taste is enjoyable, and unique.

Saw it in Michael Jakson's Untimate Beer book and thought, why not? Bad. Nothing to commend itself.

Blue Moon had a very nice flavor and the aftertaste was a nice sweet but not too sweet taste. I would defienlty get this again.

smells like cloves, banana, sythentically sweetened grape bubblegum. looks like cloudy piss with first-in-the-morning style head. tastes OK. like a good belgian white that was artificially sweetened... and a bit sour. i had a bad experience with this. though i've had it before, i ordered a pint just so i could rate it based on fresh observations. i had 1 pint. it was my only pint of the day. five minutes afterwards, i puked. this doesn't sit in my stomach well. thanks, coors.

Appearance: cloudy golden (like apple cider) with decent head that seemed to last a bit. Smell: strange, at first reminded me of soap... then the scent kicked in: the smell was that of one of those urinal "breath mints." Taste: tasted just like it smelled, but not really soapy. Instead, floraly, and fruity. Better than average taste, since it's kinda strange, but definitely not something I'd drink more than one at a time. Mouthfeel: not bad... feels like it tastes and smells. Drinkability: One is drinkable, two is not. This is a one-a-night beer. More than that would upset the stomach, as it's too fruity and filling (or maybe after awhile the constant smell of the urinal "breath mint" would send you gagging.)
