Purchased in a 355ml bottle (if that figure seems a little random, it is the equivalent of 12 fl oz) in Sainsbury’s as ’North American Craft Beer Blue Moon’.’ North American’ is significant, because it is a Denver beer brewed in Toronto. The label is almost identical to the one in the illustration. The beer is a very hazy golden yellow with a white head. Spicy and zesty aromas. The taste is much creamier than a regular witbier, lacking the zestiness of a typical Belgian example. I would guess this comes from the use of oats in the Blue Moon brewing process. It has hints of coriander and orange peel, but little hop taste. This is a very pleasant, interesting and drinkable beer.

Bottle @ Pony & Trap, Chew Magna. Basically a subdued Hoegaarden with less prominent spicy and fruity aromas/flavours. Hazy orange pour with a small white head. Many better wits out there to enjoy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"still refreshing on a hot day, but we’re starting to lean towards macrobrew taste here. a lot of the same qualities as better wits, just in smaller doses."
