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.

Great beer. Smells great not as couldy as some Belgian whites. Goes down really smooth. Is better on tap than in a bottle.

Pours with a three-finger white head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Light cloudy amber color with some yeast left in the bottle. Light bodied and light carbonation. Nose is wheat. Starts with some sweetness, some cloves and a clean finish. Nice. $5.74 for a 6-pack of 12oz from Super Walmart Concord, NH. Label has it brewed by Blue Moon Brewing Co.

Wow what a surprise to see and drink at a small hotel bar. A nice crisp delightful tasting beer. A beer to recomend to those stuck on the big 3 TV commercialized alcohol laden water drinkers.

This íperfumyí beer deserves to be more widely available than it seems to be.

Rather enjoyed this beer from the draft. Had a great looking color and was cloudy. Good sweet flavor, but not overpowering any other aspects of the beer. Good overall balance and a good summer treat. Not bad for a specialy macro brew

12 oz bottle - 3.2% ABW. Pours a very cloudy and murky golden almost brownish. It has a fizzy white head that quickly disappears completely.

The aroma is yeast, corriander, wheat and some musty fruitiness.

The flavor is pretty subdued for a wit. Thereís sweet malt and wheat with some yeast and spiciness but itís pretty far in the background. It has a slightly bitter finish. Thereís some unpleasant acidic mustiness. The mouthfeel is pretty watery and undercarbonated.

Overall, a decent offering by macro standards, but pretty substandard for a wit.
