UPDATED: OCT 6, 2005 Tastes better on tap then in the bottle. Very unique cloudy look. A sweet flavor that for the most part people drinking it have to be in the proper mood.

Bottle&Draft: This beer is suprisingly sweet. It has a mild aroma and taste, not too complex, overpowering or fantastic, but nothing rubs me the wrong way like most macros now do. Its major flavors are citrus (orange) and vanilla. Has a cloudy appearnce with a nice white head and some carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2009 Draft. Served with an orange slice for variety. Guess this is kind of the "Shoebox Greetings" of the megabeers. Surprisingly cloudyÖ does that mean itís unpasteurized? Fine white head and a soft wheat taste thatís actually a bit chewy. A touch of coriander without the yeasty esters of other wits. Finishes light, but then I get some hint of adjunct corns. Nice lacing.

Although I like this beer, I need to be in the mood for it. It has a very strange orangey flavor. And most people do put an orange slice in it. It comes out very cloudy, as if it is going to be a very thick drink. It is very full of flavor, but I canít stand more than one. The orange flavor just doesnít do it for me.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2007 Draught and bottle. cloudy straw/golden, white head. Draught was served with orange slice. Not a whole lot of aroma. Malty, sweet, nice wheat balnce, citrus and coriander, tangy and refreshing. Some yeast flavors as well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2006 It should be noted that there can be a big difference from bottle to bottle with this beer. On tap, especially with a wedge of orange, itís almost always silky and refreshing. Very even carbonation, with flavor of yeast and wheat. Again, there are times when Blue Moon isnít as good as normal, but for the most part, itís quite good. Iíve noticed this same problem with Coors Light (a bad to decent beer for itís class), and considering that Coors distributes Blue Moon, there might be something to it.

Aroma is a plain sweet sugar. Flavor has an almost floral, perfume like characteristic, over some general wheat and lemons. Palate really lacks, with a dose of water.

Iím not a huge fan of belgian whites, but when I try a good one I know it. This is just poor. Watered down, odd flavors, and way too sweet. I didnt know when I was drinking it that it was made by a swill brewer, but now that i see that i feel better about not enjoying it.

Pretty good "microbrew" style offering for such a large company. Tied with Killianís Red for my favorite Coors beers. Great typical white-style citrus and coriander flavor with hefe-like cloudiness and mouthfeel. No reason to drink bad lagers if this is available.
