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.

Pale gold in color and slightly cloudy. Has a slightly sweet aroma and tastes Belgiany, but on the sweet side. Different, but very good.

(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.

Golden color with white head. Nice smell with a hint of orange. A pretty good beer.

aaronh (201) - McMurray, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2003
It has a nice yellow color with a hint of orange, and a somewhat creamy head. The aromas are somewhat fruity, like citrus and a hint of banana. The taste is rather clean with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. While I think my buddy was expecting more from a belgium white style beer, it is not a bad beer at all. Definitely refreshing, it is a good warm weather beer, and would make a good compromise between truly good beer and the macro stuff. Very easy to drink a few of these.

Cloudy golden color, white head. Wheaty and spicy nose and flavor with a hint of orange. Decent, especially for an offshoot of Coors.

I enjoy this beer with the expected orange slice, but the beer by itself is enhoyable also. Veyr cloudy and pale color with alot of good undertones.

I can't believe that this is a Coors product. They did good buying these rights. The beer is light orange, and has orange undertones in both the scent and the flavor. Good wheat beer but not the best in this style at all. Better on tap than in the bottle. Orange slice brings out more of the orange flavor but is better without.
