Becoming increasingly popular here in Connecticut, Blue Moon Belgian White is a welcome addition to any tap! Very smooth with a nice wheaty consistency. Cloudy. Decent head. Nice subtle presence of caramel and some banana. Taste is a little flat but is greatly enhanced by the addition of a slice of orange (!) or lemon.

oneStar (15) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2004
Bottle. Poured cloudy with a decent head. Nice citrus and wheat aroma and flavor. Overall good but there are other wheat beers I would prefer over this one.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2004
Cloudy light amber/orangey color. Sweet, banana/fruity aroma. Wheat flavors, with a bit of citrusy tartness - although it gets smoother and less biting when it warms up. Not bad, but not real disctincitve.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2004
UPDATED: APR 15, 2005 interesting scent, wheat, some banana. First taste, instantly thought bananas the fruit, not the candy. Tastes like a wheat beer, not too original. Smooth and very drinkable.

beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - APR 8, 2004
Nice simmering cloud in the glass. Served to me on tap with a lemon, which suffused beautifully through the top of the beer as I went down the glass. Mild spices that compliment the citrus well. Had at Daisy Buchanan's in Boston, my only regret is that their glasses seemed a bit small. Beer has a bit of radiance to it as well. Distinctive, but doesn't necessarly make an impression if you're looking to hit on people in a bar, I'd imagine.

Blink (8) - USA - APR 5, 2004 does not count
THe beer was a beautiful golden brown with a nice aroma but the aftertaste left something to be desired, to say the least.

DKlovesbeer (172) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2004
Hazy golden body with orange highlights and some sediment, quickly vanishing white head. Aroma is wheaty with hints of fruit and spices. Mouthfeel is very bubbly, like seltzer. Somewhat bland on the palate, this beer has lots of understated fruit flavors. Finishes with a pleasing sweetness. Decent wheat ale but nothing like a Belgian Witbier.

Good smell and initial taste, but the aftertaste is very chemical. Not my favorite.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2004 a wonderful american version of a belgian withbier. Pours a light orange in color with a thick white head. Flavors of beglian yeast, slight citrus, and a little honey. Very smooth going down.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2011 I think this beer would be rated higher if people did not know it was a Coors product. That said, there are a number of wit beers out there that are better.I have had this beer a number of times both draft and bottle. The draft is a bit better but this rating is for the bottle. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer pours a tan - orange color with a small white head that quickly fades. The aroma is sweet, tangy and has a hint of orange. The flavor is relatively light with hints of citrus and spice. Pretty pleasant despite being the wrong color. A decent beer especially in placed that do not have much in the way of good beer.
