A nice solid wheat ale with a modest orange body and okay head (when poured into a plastic cup). Good amount of orange and coriander on the flavour and aroma but not too overpowering. Highly drinkable in large quantities if youíre into the style.

Very clear for a wheat. Aroma is dull wheat and almost non-existant, probably got filtered out with the haze. Taste is suprisingly good. Taste is honey with a light wheat and orange zest. Honey is a nice addition that makes this very refreshing on this hot day.

Frahmo (316) - Idaho, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Taste like a blue moon with a touch of honey in it. Nothing spectacular, pretty bland aroma with a faded taste. Nothing to see here.

It tastes like blue moon. It has honey. I had a free sample at the liquor store. I wouldnít buy it. But Iíll drink it for free. And I guess thatís exactly what a 2.5 is.

THamm (3) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 15, 2014 does not count
Has a distinct wheat after taste that lingers for awhile. Other than that, nothing outstanding.

jflopsu (644) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours a light gold. Has a faint grain and wheat aroma. Taste is sweet with grains, hints of honey and yeast. A grainy and malt aftertaste.

Maxbier (398) - Maryland, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Golden yellow with dissipating white head. Aroma has some yeast, some wheat, and some cardboard. Flavor; slightly sweet, hint of honey and extracted citrus. Finish is orange-ish with a touch of yeast esters. Tried this in a glass and out of the bottle. Significantly more drinkable from the bottle served as cold as possible.

jrodooo5 (1071) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bubbly gold pour w/ a white head that dissipates instantly. The aroma has an odd malt scent to it. The taste is actually quite off putting. Something isnít working here - not sure if itís the honey or what but this is not good! Watery on the palate w/ a strange aftertaste. Not a fan!

Pours light gold. Smell is grain, tart malt almost skunky. Taste is very sweet grainy cereal honey. Too sweet. Ugh...diabeetus.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent honey gold with white head. Smells mildly sweet with notes of orange and yeast. Tastes like it smells with an average (at best) mouthfeel. Not bad for what it is.
