Bottle. Pours highly carbonated and shallow, with hues of orange and yellow. Mediocre head that spews an aroma of grassy honey and lemon. Flavors follow suit, with an addtion of orange in the finish. Watery palate. Not bad for a lawnmower beer.

Weird color.. coincidentally I would say looks like honey. Aroma of carmal malt and slight honey. Strongest flavor is of honey... and then typical bluemoon seasonal carmal malt... hops nowhere to be found. Finish is strong honey. Would be nice if the honey was toned down a bit and the beer up a little. Iíll try it with an orange as the label seems to suggest and rerate.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - MAY 29, 2007
Cloudy golden pour with a decent, fluffy white head. Grainy aroma with touches of honey and orange peel. Flavor is very strong honey ... almost a mead but with a grainy wheat taste that sets it apart. Very little hop presence. Clean, subtle finish with a lingering sweetness. Nice and refreshing.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Bottle. Has a light dusty grain aroma, not quite wheaty but more like the dust from a box of Cheerios. Mild honey notes and a little orange peel if you concentrate. No hops presence. A bit of metallic gaseousness. Dull gold in color, with a bit of haziness. Thin white dissipating head. Thin watery body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet with a lot of honey flavor and a bit of orange peel. Really tastes like a bowl of Cheerios in milk with honey on them. No bitterness at the finish, just leaving you with an oaty, honey flavor throughout the finish and after. Leaves a lot to be desired.

Canadianlush (169) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Pours a golded yellow with a nice white head. Almost no aroma what so ever, though the hint of honey is there. For a wheat beer itís somewhat hoppy and even bitter. Pretty boring overall which isnít to say itís bad, just when you open a bottle of wheat beer seasoned with honey and orange peel youíd expect a bolder taste.

I liked this. The honey taste is very nice and itís a good wheat beer. No need to add orange or lemon as the citrus flavor is already there. I donít understand the low ratings.

Bottle. Had never seen this one before, so I had to pick it up since Iím a huge fan of Blue Moon. The only other variation Iíve had was the pumkin beer (which was not too bad). This one was not terrible, but frankly it was just too sweet to have more than one in a day.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2008 I like Blue Moon Belgian Wheat So I had to try this beer. It was a nice clear golden color with a hint of honey smell. This beer had a very pleasant taste. Nice on a hot summer night.

(Bottle, courtesy of Lumpy) Pours a clear yellow body with a large white head. Aroma of honey and toasted malt. Flavor of honey, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, and light citrus.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2007
12oz bottle pours golden with a slight haze and a pretty large foamy offwhite head. Aromas of slight clove, some honey, and a touch of orange peel. Flavor is quite sweet with honey and you can definitely get the orange peel strongly upfront too. Pretty well carbonated with a fizzy mouthfeel. Just like the winter and the spring ales from blue moon the flavors seem quite artificial to me.
