On tap, hazy gold orange color is pretty, but totally wrong for a wit. Taste is grainy, with orange zest and coriander on the finish. Reminds me greatly of Sam Adams Summer Ale. I tasted it side by side with a Hoegaarden, and it simply was blown away by the real Belgian.

A solid wheat with a pronounced banana nose and that lovely summer back of the mouth wheat smoothness. I had it with an orange slice as opposed to the traditional lemon and found that it lent a sweeter and rounder taste.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2003 Wow, I dont know about this. This was one of my first ratings and I had it at a 3.4. That was when the average rating was in the low 2's. Now it is holding strong at a 3.07. But I gotta say. After having this again I am no longer much of a fan. THe nose is weak, kind of bland, Some wheat citrus thing going on, but just not pronounced. Some citrus in the taste but flat and stale. Thin bodied and quite unimpressive.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2005 A very nice beer. Not as hoppy as one would expect, but clean and pleasant overall. Light citrusy taste; beautiful color.

This late rating is after having it again when given to me by a friend. I maintain my original opinion, that this is not terrible, but it's nothing I'd go out and purchase. It was better with an orange slice, but that's not saying much. Somewhat of a citrus essence, but definitely not a ton of flavor. Considering Blue Moon is owned by Coors might expain it's wimpy-ness.

BBB63 (6083) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 27, 2003
A mass marked version of the style, not near the complexity of Hoegaarden, Celis, or Upland. Cloudy pale yellow with a little head, no lace, thin-bodied. Some citrus and spice hints on the nose. Sweeter than most witbiers, smooth. A coy bread-like taste lingers on the palate.

kumite56 (471) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - MAY 27, 2003
OK. Mild but not too washed out. A little malt sweetness and little decernible hopps. Nice white head and smooth. not much else here though

Kodos (200) - USA - MAY 14, 2003
Pours light gold in color. No real head and what there is dissipates immediately. No lacing to speak of. Malt and citrus hop nose. Flavor is slightly sweet, with a hint of acidity and some funky plasticness... Body is watery and suprisingly hollow. Finishes slightly acidy although leaving no real impression at all. Disappointing....

about as good an impression of a belgian beer as could be expected from coors... not too bad, though it's not so stellar on the tongue.

Great, cold, smooth brew. Had this while enjoying the view on the Ohio River in Kentucky. Heck, the view made the beer taste even better. Exceptionally smooth, and goes down the same way, cold and nice.
