citrus, barnyard, skunky, amber, hazy, frothy, lightly bitter, medium body, creamy. Solid, middle-of-the-road for a mass-produced Belgian white.

355ml bottle. 11 May 15. Cloudy, deep gold colour with a creamy white head which reduced to a ring and left no lacing. Aroma of citrus, coriander, honey, wheat and yeast (tick, tick, tick). Light to medium sweetness, light bitterness and a little bit of spiciness. Light to medium body, creamy texture, some zestiness and lingering gentle bitterness in a semi-dry finish. A decent tip of the hat to Belgian Witbiers and very drinkable.

SkillsFactory (106) - ITALY - MAY 30, 2015
Ambrata chiara, velata dai lieviti in sospensione, schiuma bianca fine non molto persistente. Poco naso, coriandolo e frumento ma tutto molto leggero. Al palato leggero coriandolo e pepe, scorza d'arancia, frumento in secondo piano, finale pepato con leggera astringenza ed amaro erbaceo da luppolo. Ben carbonata, corpo medio-leggero.

Orange peel, wheat, spicy, soapy and coriander in the aromaT, pours a cloudy straw color with a dense pillowing head. Wheat, creamy mouthfeel, a bit of the orange peel a little heavy and slightly oily.

GOOD BEGINERS BEERS. I DONT DRINK MUCH BELGIUM WHEATS BUT AT WALMART’S THE CHOICE IS SLIM. BLUE MOON IS LIKE SPICES AND FRUITS BUT YOU CAN FEEL THE CARBONEATION IN YOUR STOMACHE. ITS EASY TO DRINK. YOU CAN REALLY DRINK IT. IF I DONT FEEL LIKE GO FAR AND IM GOING TO THE POOL I CAN STOP AT WALMART’S BYE TRUNKS FRIZBEE BLUE MOON’S MEAT PROPANE AMMO AND EAT AT MACDONALD’S AT THE ONE STOP. PROBLY WHAT ILL DO IS START WITH ONE PLINY (I LOVE IT!!) AND TWO AND THEN DRINK BLUE MOON. IF THE NITE GETS REAL HAREY THEN MAYBE STEELE RESERVE I HIPE NOT COS THAT MEANT THAT MY DUMAS CUSIN SHOW UP AND I MAY WAKE UP IN THE DITCH AGIAN.

apperance - cloudy, a bit darker than white. Aroma - some banana, some other vague fruit. Taste - also non-specific fruits, a pleasantly sweet finish. Mouthfeel is good. There are better witbiers out there at this price, but this is a not unpleasant choice.

jdjuice (417) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - MAY 14, 2015
Pours cloudy gold with quickly disappearing head. Aroma is slightly citrusy, bready, grassy. Has a somewhat artificial tasting citrus flavor, very light, with a sort of musty flavor that comes up through the nose. Great for an American macro, not particularly good compared to other beers.

Some strong stuff. I had this my first time drinking beer, with Bud Light, SA Boston lager and coors light. First one i finished. Kind of strong and for a first time drinker will sit you on your ass. May not seem right for a beer. But it isnt the fact its super strong albeit its 5.4. Its a sneaky kind of beer where it only hits you when you stand up... Ah. good times. Blue moon was my first ale, and i like it and it has a high nostalgia feeling for me.

gildnerk (170) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2015
So I'm giving the beer an 11 because, all in all, it's rather drinkable. Pours a hazy medium orange-gold with a short-lasting white head. Aromas of orange peel and grain. Taste is overwhelmingly orange peel with some salty notes. Unfortunately, a rather thin body and not very much character -- tastes like a less-sweet Orange Crush sometimes.
