Lots of bubbles floating about in the straw colored liquid. Stable white head. Pulp, as in bleached paper, aromas. Hints of snickerdoodle cookies, and malt-o-meal. Interesting scents, but not inciting. I am sensing a spice cookie flavor, with mace, nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon. Dry honey component with a touch of toasted malt. This seems like a lightly spice wheat. A mix betweens a shandy, spice and american wheat that at some level works. I could see enjoying this with grilled coconut shrimp or other Caribbean fare.

Bottle: Clear yellow/golden with a big white head. Nose is malty and lagerish, hints of grain. The taste is strikingly sweet with honey and light citrus. Even a bit of light bitters. Smooth and sweet, really not too offensive at all from Coors. Thanks Jordan.

12oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden hue. Two fingers of cloudy whit head. Head permeates a yeasty cereal nose. As the head dissipates, an aroma of sweet honey and grass takes over. Light body, but very quenching. Not impressive as far as palate or body, but great swilling drinkability. Cheers, ladies!Crisp sweet honey citrus notes. Crisp flavors. Ever so slightly cloying, but mixed with a moderate gum tingling effervescence. Lawnmower beer. Just enough flavor and body to beat out the macro swill, but nothing that will drag you down. Iím gonna go finish this on the porch...

mjg74 (2486) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Bottle from BevMo. Medium golden pour. Slightly sweet acidic aroma, some rotten veggies. Spicy flavor dominates. Cinnamon seems to be the dominant flavor. Drinkable if not really flavorful.

IndianaRed (2315) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Bottle pours a clear yellow with a lasting whiye head. Slightly skunky papery aroma and sweet light grains. Honey and very light pale malt in the dlavoe. Thin fizzy palate. Eceded my expectations. Thanks Jordan.

Picked up a six pack of this yesterday and must say I enjoyed it. Very light, honey aroma, and very sweet. As a summer brew, I love it. Iím a big Blue Moon Drinker and I enjoy this Summer Ale a lot. Would definately recommend it.

Interesting aromas of honey and marzipan. Poured golden yellow with 1 finger head. Flavor is sweet; mostly of honey and a little orange with a light refreshing body, almost lagerish. I enjoyed this beer, it was not as bad as the ratings show.

Very faint aroma of wheat. Light, yellow color, slightly cloudy. Very light in the flavor department, with hints of honey and orange, maybe a little butteriness. Seems a little sweet, but probably only because of the lack of other flavor notes. Very drinkable, but kind of boring. The "regular" Blue Moon Belgian white is more interesting, as many other comments have mentioned, and I prefer it. This might be good outside on a hot day, or for folks who like lighter beers but enjoy some variety.

I echo the sentiment of the previous raters. This beer is very light in color, but also in taste. I got mine out of a bottle, and it poured straw yellow with a thick white head that really had no body to it. The honey taste is evident, but overall, I was not impressed by anything this beer had to offer. I agree with Patrick767 in that the original Blue Moon is Much Much better.

bottle - This beer has a light citrus and wheat aroma. The flavor is quite sweet with some citrus and honey. Itís light and thin, thoroughly uninspiring, though drinkable. I canít help but give it a resounding "Meh". The flagship blue moon is much better.
