For being available just about anywhere, Blue Moon sure is a good beer. Highly refreshing with a smooth citrus flavor. It’s nowhere near the "true" Belgian Whites, but will do in a pinch. Enjoyable year round.

Meta zlocista barwa jak przy pszenicznych. W aromacie pszenice I drozdze. W smaku troszke chmiel I drozdze .Piana slaby szybko znika. Nie warte polecenia moim zdanien.

Tasted from the tap several times. Cloudy, light orange colour with a medium foamy white head. Aroma of lemon, corn and wheat. Taste is light and watery with a strong presence of the wheat and a citrus finish. Next one please!

Pours a yellow orange colour with a white head. Aroma of fake orange and coriander. Tastes mild and sweet, with a bit of cardboard. Boring and bland.

12 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out light coriander, some spices, and citrus. Flavour is very weak, with some skunk, light coriander, and herbal notes. Skunky and herbal. Commercial crap.

Hazy orange beer with a white head. Sweet, orange-y scent.It’s quite smooth and creamy, with the orange coming through again, a tangy, spicy aftertaste and some bitter hop. The citrusy zest really lingers, albeit in quite an understated way. Very sessionable.

beer_rookie (402) - Arkansas, USA - SEP 10, 2016
Pours a cloudy golden orange color. Hazy, wheaty looking. About one finger white head, not real long lasting. Head retention low, lacing very low. But a fresh pour does look great!

Aroma is wheat, coriander, orange peel, lemongrass. Low hops, some sweetness. Smells good.

Taste is wheaty, sweet. Light orange, coriander. Buttered bread. Light in taste, but tastes good.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Yep, it’s pretty creamy. No bitter, a little sweet. It’s good.

Overall, it’s pretty good. Put me down for another one. Would I buy it again, yes. Would I recommend it, yes. Better than your average macro, and competitive with your best micros.

Una Belgian White Ale de color ámbar turbio y baja carbonatación. Su aroma es cítrico suave, miel y floral. Su sabor es resfrescante, durazno, naranja, cilantro y miel manteniendo su dulzor en todo momento. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso ricorda il frumento. L’intensità olfattiva è flebile e la persistenza olfattiva è corta. Il cappello di schiuma ha una discreta resistenza, con carbonazione e bollicine medie, come pure quelle del piano sottostante, spinte da una carbonazione abbondante, persistente ed insistita. L’aspetto del liquido è opalescente. Il colore è giallo torbido. Il corpo è pieno. Il dolce è medio. L’amaro è moderato. L’aspro è leggero. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di biscotto, frumento, avena, coriandolo e fiori.

Ahhhh I remember the days of when I was introduced to something superior to Coora Light. I look at Blue Moon as the gateway to my path of totality in my craft experiences. It was awesome then but has lost its luster now. In the glass the appearance is cloudy, light orange with a thin, short lived white head of foam. The aroma is orange peel and coriander with some cereal in the background. The taste prevails flavors of wheat, tart orange, and some spice, mostly coriander through and through. A middle of the road brew. Still great memories held as a first-timer for me.

Pours a very hazy golden with a medium white rim on top that doesn’t leave much lacing. Nose is of citrus and lightly sweet cereals but pretty light on the coriander and citrus, though. Taste is lightly sweet with some bready and floury cereals with a good dose of citrus this time. Body is medium and carbonation moderately high and a little pricky. This abrasive carbonation does dry the palate pretty effectively, though, and prevents it from ever feeling cloying. A pretty good macro wit.
