A really great ale. I donít have fancy explanations like most people here but if your an average beer drinker like me youíll probably love this stuff!

Headbanger (3501) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2007
12oz bottle- A touch of haze on a golden body with a decent white head. Aroma of slight citrus. Taste of a typical pale lager with a slight honey and orange taste on the back end. IMO the worse of their seasonals so far.

bhensonb (12138) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 6, 2007
Somewhat grassy aroma backed by llight spice (which might be my take on honey). Light brassy gold color with a frothy white head that laces. Better than thin body. Starts with a definite hit of citrus, turns creamy as the stern carbonation foams away, ends with a very wheat taste accompanied by honey notes around the mouth and citrus oil on the tongue. A relatively complex finish for a light ale. And itís from Coors? Amazing.

12 oz bottle, freshness date of Sept 30 07 stamped on neck.

Hazy golden with a large fluffy white head that rapidly collapses to a thin cap.

Aroma of grains and wet straw. No honey detected, but I did note a touch of orange.

Clover honey does come out in the flavor. Lightly sweet like honey butter. touch of orange zest in the finish

Drinkable. Nothing spectacular, nothing I would hunt down, but I certainly wouldnít turn one down if offered.

I am ashamed to say I liked this beer. It tastes like baklava, with an slight orange aroma. light yellow in color, clove, cinnamon and honey flavors - quite yummy.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2007
Light honey body with a half inch dense head. Nose-light BMC with some light citrus. Taste-medium top high CO2, very light honey on the backend, cereal, cinnamon, dust, light pear, light lotion. The taste really isnít that bad, but the aftertaste is very dusty and artificial. Not offensive, even mildly refreshing, but not realty good.

Jungle Jimís Second Spring Beer Fest

5/12/2007: Blue Moon Honey Moon Summer Ale has clean and clear yellow appearance. The aroma and flavor exude real honey comb and something delicately spicy (cinammon?). This beer really tastes like they threw the entire honeycomb in there! This beer is well-balanced overall and not too sweet. It has a light body and is ultra smooth. Honey Moon Summer Ale is the definitely the best of the Blue Moon seasonal offerings.

Sampled from a 12 oz bottle.

pours a little darker than a regular blue moon with a fluffy good sized head. Has some citrus notes in the aroma for sure. Tastes of honey, orange with not much hop. Not a remarkable beer but better than a lot of summer beers out there.

shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2007
A fair summer wheat beer, with a bit of orange peel in the nose. A little complication would enhance this brew, with nothing more than light honey notes and the promised orange zest coming through in the flavor. But it is a smooth, refreshing drink, that much is true.

On tap at the Crescent Moon. This is an attractive-looking beer that pours a hazy deep gold color. It has a plentiful large white head of reasonable staying power and nice lacing. Smells sweet, but thereís not honey aroma to be discerned. The adjunct-riddled flavor mounts up a somehat thicker body than most Coors products, but the sweetness does ot come from any honey flavoring to the taste. This is an OK beer, but there cannot be very much honey in it. I donít detect very much orange either.
