Strong coriander/citrus taste. Silky mouthfeel.possibly result of oats in the malt. Almost rotten aroma. Pretty fruity

Bottle. Cloudy golden pour with light head, but decent lacing. Good aroma with a nice citrus smell. A little rough going down and a slight bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml Bottle. I really enjoyed this beer, I thought it had quite a bit of flavour to it mostly from the coriander spicing which is also very apparent in the aroma. Its very fizzy at first which at first takes away from the taste until it has calmed down. It goes down easy and is very smooth and light overall I enjoyed it will definitely be having another bottle!

jmgreenuk (3563) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Poured a hazy medium amber with no life at all. The aroma is wheat, bread, biscuity, light citrus. The flavour is neutral veggie with a woody wheat, bready, light citrus palate. Light bodied with flat carbonation. Not good, not good at all.

czlowiekwiadro (30) - POLAND - APR 12, 2014
dość słaby zapach, lekko przypominający posłodzoną herbatę. piana słaba, kolor pomarańczowo-złoty, nieprzejrzyste. w smaku słodkie, treściwe, znowu wyczuwalna herbata z mlekiem. nie czuć ani kolendry ani pomarańczy.

Blue Moon Bottle poured into pint glass. Aroma is of wheat and citrus. Golden appearance with more than 2 fingers worth of head that disappears quickly. Wheat and citrus taste good flavor with a nice medium body goes down smooth. One of my favorite beers to have during dinner.

prawlie (1052) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2014
Bottle into a Hoegaarden glass. Big bubbly head on a golden-orange hazy beer. Coriander and citrus aroma, but a touch ’bubblegummy’. Smooth, light citrus, tart, refreshing. Reasonable fare.

Well, its a refreshing brew. Easy drinker, orange taste, throw an orange slice on the side and you have a great beer!

drsandman (63) - New York, USA - APR 5, 2014
Pours a cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is orange, creamsicle, wheat. Taste is the same, really can't describe it better than creamsicle. Lightish mouthfeel, finishes sweet. The king of "gateway beers"

Very subtle aroma. Yellow cloudy appearance. Very fruity taste and quite fizzy. Not a massive fan of American beers but this one isn't bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
