Aroma is clover, herbs, some sweet honey, spices. Palate is sharp upfront, syrupy middle and then thin again at the end. I liked the wheat notes, spices, ginger, herbal and clove, but the honey was too sweet and sugary

Pours ever-so-slightly hazed into the glass, huge nitrous head with little retention, suds lace. The nose is typical American wheat with some lemon/citrus notes. An underwhelming flavor.... Macro offering, with tiny corn notes and a plastic aftertaste coming through. There are some superfluous citrus, wheat and processed sugarcane contingencies interwoven, but they don’t really add to the brew’s complexity, they tend to cover it up. It ends with a weird finish... citrus and wheat, corn and plastic.... odd.... it really makes for a muddy offering overall.

Hazy light cold color with lots of foamy white head. Lemon and wheat nose. Lemon wheat body with some honey and spice to it. Chemical tinge. Basically takes like Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy with less lemon pledge.

pretty good brew, nice sweet taste. Has a bit of a citrus/wheat taste and a good smooth body. Pretty good brew.

Bottle. Golden pour with nice white head. Can taste the honey in this one. Not bad, but the flavor is kind of weak. Pretty refreshing on a hot day, however.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 12, 2007
Gold yellow, white head, average. Nose of wheat husk and citrus, light honey. The flavor is nice, like buttery french toast and citrusy powdered sugar. Nice flavor, bad nose. Full body, average finish. Wow for blue moon.

Typical american wheat aroma, not my favorite of beer aromas: lemon, wheat, a vague herbal hop, toasted wheat bread. Hazy golden color, medium pure white head. Honey flavor is quite pronounced, and lingers with a distinct aftertaste. Neat! Drying finish, not overly hopped like some wheats.

Golden with a white heat. Nose is like a blonde ale with a hint of honey in it. A little yeasty. I taste the honey, but not the orange peel. I wish they had upped the fruit in the brew.....

Bottled - Pour is a clear crisp yellow.. with a med. head... Nose is malty with hints of faint honey... Taste is a typical blue moon with a shot of cinnomon... pretty decent considering im a blue moon fan

Actually pretty good. Refreshing and light and great with cornmeal muffins. A slight honey taste and wheaty. The orange peel is hidden. Tasty.
