I dislike Belgian White Ales traditionally. The harsh peppery characater is too unsettling for my pallette. With that in mind I give my opnion that Blue Moon sits well with me. Probably because it’s flavor is a little west of a true Belgium. It greets with a nice spicy nose and produces a nice smooth drink with just hints of orange and pepper taste. It’s more subtle and not overpowering. So as a ’belgium white’ I doubt it bodes well; but, as a good drink I love it.

Very, very tasty. WHile I have no other experience with belgian whites, I quite enjoy the spiciness of this beer and the zippy finish.

My second favorite beer of all time, also apparently unavailable in western Canada. Detractors of this brew should stick to MGD! To me, it’s better than the true Belgian whites in every way.

A tad weak for a Belgian wheat ale, but Blue Moon makes up for the lack of strength with a smooth texture.

I view white beers something like I view jazz; there’s something I just don’t get, although I usually admire the craftsmanship. This beer, however, must be the Kenny G of beers. The ornamentation of extras strains, in a desperate, sickly way, to cover up for a lack of real substance.

Awesome white beer. Light. Citrus. Unfiltered. I have turned many people onto this. I even had it on tap in Atlantic City NJ!
