cloudy yellow orange..very little head..
Aroma of dried apricots..
Definitely not like a witbier..but Iíll tell you, it had a real genuine apricot taste to it that deserves some sort of respect..the flavor moves from fruity apricot to more spicy notes..I donít give a hoot who makes this..I think its pretty damn good!

I have to say, Iím not a huge fan of this beer. I thought it had a shampoo type nose to it. The flavor was citrus, with a lot of carbination.

Iíll go ahead and admit that Iím not a big fan of white beers, so Iíll try to not let that affect my rating of this beer. I enjoyed my experience with Blue Moon, although Iím not sure Iíd buy it with my own money. Pretty decent brew for a Macro, with an original flavor although a bit bland for my tastes. Reminds me of Hoegaardden and some of the other whites I encountered in France and Belgium.

Fruity plum/citrus smell. Light malty flavor. Very yeasty flavor. Not quite like the Belgian varieties, but still nice.

A bit orange-y for a wit. No head. Thinish palate- hint of cinnamon. Crisp. Light.

It was highly recommended to me by the waiter. To me, it tasted like heavily carbonated Budweiser with a lemon in it. Really not right at all. One of my patented Neck-Spasm-Inducing-Beers.
