3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 11/23/2015. Pours lightly hazy golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, honey, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aroma with good balance of pale malt, honey/orange peel, fruity yeast, and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon orange peel, pear, apple, honey, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, honey, wheat, cracker, biscuit, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance and robustness of pale malt, honey/orange peel, fruity yeast, and light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Fair amount of dryness after the finish as well. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good Pale wheat ale style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt, honey/orange peel, fruity yeast, and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

12oz bottle as Blue Moon Summer Honey Wheat from Whole Foods, Santa Fe. Pours clear golden with a low head. Aroma is malts and honey. Flavor is malts with some sweetness. Disappointingly thin and ordinary.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Picked up as part of a variety pack. Hints of spice in the aroma. Nice head on the pour, with a golden color. The flavor is honey and a hint of citrus. I found this to be very average. Would drink it again, but would not go out if my way to find it.

Really mild. Has a vanilla smell. Blue Moon flavors taste cheap to me. It okay, not great.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a dark straw from a bottle. Aroma of honey. Flavor is kind of like a standard pale lager with some honey added, even though this is an ale. I don’t know, feels somehow fake. Meh.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle in pint glass
golden straw color with modest white head of limited duration. Virtually no lacing. Plenty of visible carbonation.
A sweet, light flavored, and light bodied beer. Intended to be served cold on hot days, this beer holds up better than some other summer beers to warming. Some malt and wheat flavor lingers into the finish along with a modicum of light orange flavor.
