Nice golden appearance. I used to love this beer, but drank it for so long I got tired of it. Good wheat beer Revere Stryker dog!

You have probably heard that saying Blue Moon is better with an orange. The reality of this beer is that without the added orange, the flavor of the beer is "bland" at best. It's not a terrible beer by any means but it's definitely not a beer to write home about. Blue Moon is an average beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I like this, and chose it over other Belgium beers that I like, for instance Hogaaarden or even Leffe. On price. and because it does what it says it does. It is slightly more than, but not much of, a hat tip to the Witbeer style in my opinion. So on price, and because this isnít a disaster Iím happy to say that this 6 pack will be replaced by another as an unchallenging quaffing drink for the early evening sunshine. and perhaps as a roadie....

Ottimo equilibrio e corpo abbastanza pieno x questa blanche di stampo belga ma di produzione americana, le note di coriandolo rifioriscono sia al naso che al gusto. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

Hazy yellow appearance with medium head. Spicy wheat aroma, some sweetness with citruses. Medium bodied, average Belgian White style.

Hop_Hedonist (244) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2014
A superb thirst quencher - not a Hoegaarden look-alike - and not a hugely Belgian styled ale which suits me fine - a fresh fruity ale which tastes great super cold with a slice of orange. A surprise package and one for Australians - a no nonsense ale.

Tepid and sour with faint traces of what a Witbier can be. This is Coors dishonestly trying to make the public believe they are buying a craft brew.

Not bad. The wheat taste is a bit strong for me and without backing of other flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
