Blue Moon Belgian White is just not that inspiring to me. It’s a very heavy body for a wheat beer, I feel very full from drinking one. Even with an orange garnish, it lacks the flavor that you’re looking for from something that calls itself craft. That being said, it’s not really a bad beer. I can drink it, it has a pleasant taste, I have good memories with it, the finish with an orange is kinda nice. It’s just not great. I think 3/5 is about right. Maybe a touch high, but its what I have for now.

Wheat ale has a smooth start. Follows with a slightly bitter swallow. The aroma and finish are clean with a little snap.

Maits (57) - ESTONIA - APR 8, 2016
Aroma is something sour and citrus. Hazy yellow liquid with minimal head. Taste includes some citrus notes, light sweet and little bit bitter. Overall a good refreshing beer.

12-ounce bottles poured into a weizen glass. Beautiful cloudy unfiltered look, tall head, typical wheat beer flavor. Not bitter at all.

Cunningham (6671) - Halden, NORWAY - APR 5, 2016
Nice refreshing wit.
Unclear golden color with a fine white head. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium body and an ok carbonation. Mellow sweetness. Fruity, some yeast, citric and some spices.
[Bottle from Systembolaget web order in Sweden]

Alebarasi (4) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - APR 4, 2016 does not count
Apple cider-like, golden and cloudy color. Aroma of citruses, citrus peel, herbs (coriander) and maybe a dash of lemongrass and yeast. Soft carbonisation. Very drinkable beer, although its aroma quickly vanishes - smooth finish, as it says. Refreshing witbier, I must say

elosop (268) - SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2016
Grumlig, aprikosfärgad, litet skum. Doftar svagt av honung. Smaken fyllig maltsötma. Eftersmaken hyggligt lång och söt. Långtifrån belgare, men OK.

KeefOz (1466) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2016
BB 10.09.16. Poured a clouded yellow straw colour with a white collar that didn’t lace. Carbonation high with medium sized bubbles that gave a soft mouthfeel. Aroma subtly of coriander/spice along with sweet citrus. Taste of sweet orange with very subtle spice/cloves and a slight bitterness. Light body. Soft with an orange sweetness and light bitterness on the finish. Not up to the standards of a Belgian wheat beer. Disappointed as was expecting better.

chris__hartley (377) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2016
It pours cloudy copper with golden highlights; the head is off white and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: banana, orange zest, and pepper. The taste is light bitter; the aforementioned aroma notes carry through. The palate is medium light bodied with medium carbonation and a medium short finish. Overall, it’s a great when there’s nothing else on tap.

Citrus lemony smell. Pale color, light head. Mild taste, short on tongue. Ok, Belgian wit.
