3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy gold with a thin, fizzy light-tan head that diminishes rapidly. Wheaty, lemony and yeasty aroma. Crisp and refreshing with some tangy lemon and orange and a wheaty base. Very peppery and spicy with a little coriander. Short, nothing-lingering finish. Better than I thought it would be.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasty stuff, good appearance for a wit, decent spicing, the orange is a bit subdued, but I picked up something reminiscent of cardamom, which isnít quite appropriate for a wit, but this overall this isnít a bad wit, and a good choice on a hot day. 355mL bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2006 On tap, this ranks up there with some other very good wit beers. The great thing is you can get it almost anywhere. Thin, whispy head with a hazy golden color. I love the fact that itís unfiltered. Nice coriander and orange flavor and aroma that complement the wheat. Nice aftertaste. Especially good on a hot day.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2012 I was very surprised when I ordered this beer on a whim in a pub in Washington D.C.. Very flavorful and absolutely no aftertaste! As soon as I returned home to Orange County, I went out and bought myself a 12-pack.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2007 This great stuff! There is no doubt that if this were brewed in Belgian instead of here in the states it would rate around a 1/2 point higher.....at least! Donít get me wrong, this isnít Hoegarrden....but itís close and unlike Hoegarrden can be found EVERYWHERE and is cheap! ....$6.49/ 6 pack. THIS IS IN NOT BREWED BY COORS!! COORS BOUGHT THE RIGHTS TO THE COMPANY "BLUE MOON" THEY MAKE THE MONEY NOT THE BEER!!

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2005 I like this stuff, it has a lean aftertaste, and tastes good goiní down. Fruity as hell! Very good, one of my favorites, even if it is Coors.

Great beer. Very cloudy appearance. Best on tap but bottles are decent. A little heavy for mass consumption but a very nice change from the usual. Great with a slice of orange.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Lemons and other citrus and banana flavors. Something slightly off with out bottle Iím guessing, as there was something in it that reminded me of an industrial cleaner chemical.

Blue moon eh? They should call this stuff the real coors. People would probably drink it more often. I picked this up thinking that I was being original (sorry, Iím a newb) and I look here.....COORS....wtf? So anyway, itís not bad compared to most american beers. The head...what head? Itís like a 1/8th of an inch thich and disappears faster than Eminemís career. So the appearance isnít all that impressive, but the flavor is like....hmmmm, banannas, I agree on that note and is smooth to the palate. Very thick actually. The color is a bit more opaque than other American beers which is probably why they donít just slap Coors on the label. Anyhow, itís worth a 6 pack at least and if you hate it, just give it to the moochers. Save the PBR and Schlitz for yourself.

Sort of a joke of a beer. Coors attempt of something worhwhile. Not a huge fan of the style, and this is a particularly lackluster example. The choice of people who donít know anything about beer.
