This wheat beer pours out with a golden yellow/orange color. The beer is unfiltered and therefore has a nice cloudy appearance. The aroma is nothing distinct. The taste is mild and again not distinct. Not bitter nor sweet. A pinch of lemon and spices. Aftertaste is light and easy to forget. Not worth the 7 bucks I paid for it.

Pours from a bottle a turbid amber with a thin white head. Aroma slightly appley? Flavor a mild bittersweet, like a faint bitter orange peel, thin in the mouth.

What can I say, it’s blue moon. Thin body, but they pump enough spices into it to give it a decent flavor. Would prefer not to drink this, but I’ll take it over an American Light Lager, I guess.

Have been down the the whole craft beer thing. IPAs, stouts, lagers, porters, big beers. Now a days they are just too much anymore. A nice easy drinking beer like BM is my go to now. Nice and smooth, not too in your face or some over the top crazy mix of stuff. The stuff is usually Nice and fresh too due to its popularity

Thin head. Hazy orange. Orange zest smell. Very sweet taste. Little carbonation. Too sweet for the style.

For the price, this is a good starter beer. Easy and not offensive. A good beginner beer to step of a domestic light beer and into some a tad nicer. Is priced lower than most craft.
