Thin head which dissipates quickly. Nice fruity aroma with lemon, honey, spices and a little orange. Color is a slightly murky light orange/gold. Flavor is fruity also with more oranges, lemons and taste of wheat. Finish is a little sour which is nice and a bit dry. Would recommend this beer but don't think that too many will enjoy the sour aftertaste

Initially there is a strikingly sweet taste, ends with a hint of citrus. Decent body, wheat taste is apparent, pretty good beer.

a very interesting aftertaste, a bit fruit-ay but know complaint, not something i drink to excess, a bit heavy at times but a good beer to drink when dining or pining

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2003 My first experience with a Belgian White. Nice aroma with a neat almost fruity but bold flavor. Nice beer to have at a bar with a friend but I wouldn't reccomend more than one or two at a time since too many will leave you feeling full

Its a really good wheat beer with a refreshing slightly sweet, smooth taste. It tastes really natural, and the wheat it is brewed with comes through with a nice wheat taste.

Blue moon is one of the best belgian whites I have ever tasted. Good strong wheat flavour but no harsh aftertaste and its still easy to drink. I like it a lot.

raymow (798) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2003
Pale gold in color and slightly cloudy. Has a slightly sweet aroma and tastes Belgiany, but on the sweet side. Different, but very good.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2003
(Draught) Poured a hazy maze color with a little to no head. Tasted like a very watered down Belgian wheat beer.

McWhite (108) - Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2003
Cloudy yellow color with a light citrus aroma. Sweet malts and spicy hops. Definitely good considering it comes from Coors.

This is not a bad beer. It tastes like a water down version of a belgium white beer. For the money I would go with the Saranac Hefewiezen over this.
