12 oz single bottle from Mile High Wine & Spirits as "Summer Honey Wheat". Clear, dark yellow appearance with a ring of white head, eventually fully dissipating. Aroma of honey, floral notes, wheat bread and light orange peel. Similar flavor, mildly sweet with a thin body. Not very good overall. Pairing: Widespread Panic - Geraldine & the Honey Bee

Tastes like Blue Moon but with a sweet citrus taste. Tastes a little better than their traditional brew.

Bottle. Golden color with a white head. Aroma is grain and a slight citrus note. Taste has a slight bitterness.

It seemed like a twist on a Coors. Smelled like Coors and honey. Light golden color. Watery palate with carbonation. Too light as a matter of fact. Pale and wheat malt with a touch of honey but the adjunct aftertaste is what threw me. Bleh.

Pours a nice orange color with a thin white head that vanished quickly. A bit of citrus aroma and that about it. Mild spice flavor with a little sweetness. Honey? It was served with a nice orange wedge so I got my daily dose of vitamin C. This was better than expected but should have been colder. Its sure as hell the best Ive tried from Miller/Coors.

Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle purchased at Shop Rite Liquors. Pours a clear, golden color with lots of fluffy white head. Has a slight aroma of honey but mostly watered down. The taste is the same as the aroma, wish it had some more honey character to it.

I was surprised by this. Usually the Blue Moon Beers don't impress me, aside from their original wheat. This one is super refreshing but not filling either. Has a nice fizzing, subtle sweetness, with a nice wheat/citrus flavor that stays calm on the palate. I would definitely get this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled at the 2015 Joplin Pints n Paws Mac-Fest beerfest. Light wheat thing. Not very honey-ish, actually. Drinkable. Nothing of note here.

Straight from the bottle to my mouth. Satisfying enough. Little light. But crisp. Just ok.

Ericular (800) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Sampled at Rum River Wine & Spirits. This was thin and light, with not much going on at all. Maybe a contender in summer versus some macro lagers, but really this is pretty lame for a "gold medal winner".
