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 (793) - 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".

Drank this too warm which could influence rating. Clear yellow, small lacing white foam. Barley aroma, don’t know where the honey went, likewise in taste. (Memphis 201505)

There wasn’t really anything special about this beer. Probably my least favorite in the Blue Moon family that I’ve tried. Had to get it super cold so it wouldn’t get that shwaggy domestic taste. I found it just average, but I did like the honey flavor, which was quite noticable. Not bad for a lighter beer on a hot summer day. Ok for the price, better than a lot of the alternatives.

ordybill (604) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Smells like a BMC with a little bit more wheat. Appearance- This is a clear golden color with a large white head. Palate- A moderate bodied beer with heavy carbonation. This beer has an unpleasant aftertaste that does not go away with each sip. Overall- Hugely disappointing. This is a very poorly made brew.

Very smooth with a great mouth feel. Nice aftertaste and refreshing with a pleasant aroma. Fredo

Nice and interesting. With a little hint of honey and quite easy to drink. Refreshing and relaxing.
