I havenít had this in a while, but I remember it as a mediocre white. Nothing great, but nothing too aweful.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2004 My favorite beer of them all, i tried this in Boston after a red sox game and did it hit the spot! up there, they slip an orange slice into the neck so the beer passes through during each pull from the bottle, tastes good that way but Blue Moon should just be drank ice cold from a glass, Bottoms Up!

Blue Moon, you saw me standing alone, so I picked up the bottle, I needed one of my own. Pretty flavorful, but it doesnít feel or look like a Witbier to me. It belongs in another category, but its an overall good beer from the Coors people. My friends JB and CG swear by it, but Iíd pick up a Hoeer any time.

A decent, but not great beer. Very bitter taste. Itís very much the traditional Belgian White Ale, so if you like the flavor of them, this might not be a terrible choice.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2005 Blue Moon pours a hazy, yellow color with big bubbles, a thin head, and a decently sweet aroma. It is spicy, a bit acidic (less so than similar brews), smooth, a bit peppery, and a bit lemony, with a slightly dry finish.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [draft - Dave & Busterís - Homestead, PA] Poured an orange color with a thin white head. Looked more like a hefeweizen than a witbier in my opinion. Faint aroma of wheat and citrus. Slightly watered down taste, mainly wheat and yeast with a slightly sweet citrus finish. Not too bad. Went well with the orange that came with it.

The first time I tried this I was not too impressed, grainy and acidic with very little spice. At the Coors brewery it seemed to benefit from its freshness, still grainy, still atouch acidic but the orange is instantly noticeable while the coriander while somewhat subdued compared to the Hoe palys a nice role. Not spectacular but a decent drink it if you find it beer.

Hazy dark yellow beer with a fine fast disappearing head. Weak aroma, tones of wheat and coriander. Also coriander in the flavor along with wheat, yeast and some citrusy. Quite thin and really not very interesting.

very spicy wheat brew. not bad for being as widespread common as it is. possible nice portal to bigger and better things. i liked it before i understood what a great belgium beer meant, and still enjoy one once in a while, but not quite as good as i once thought. will use this beer to give to my buddies when they come over and i dont want to break into my cellar and have my good brew taken for granted, but still want to show them something a little different than mgd.

a good beer that is widely available on tap used to like it a lot when i didnt really like beer because it is not very bitter at all. cloudy. some spice and fruity flavors.
