2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear yellow with a decent creamy white head. Aroma of wheat, grain, and hints of honey and spice. Its really not half bad. Flavors of wheat, sweet malt, honey, and notes of spice and orange peel. Slightly tart finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, bubbly body with thick white head. Aroma has lemon, orange, and honey. Orange peel is present up front, but it is followed by a noticeable honey flavor. There is something else along with the honey - a mineral-like flavor along with the wheat and spices. Medium bodied and effervescent. Honey after taste.

I, too, wondered why so much hate was thrown towards this beer. The honey is present in a pleasent state. Good effervesence.

I’m disappointed by the lack of approval of this beer. I enjoyed it. Being somewhat of a honey-connoiseur and a mead-maker I could actually find the honey in this honey-beer. Others fail at that miserably. Nice spice / nutmeg / sweet candy honey flavor....not remotely powerful, really subtle and pretty refreshing. Still not as good as their White Ale, but I think it’s quite a good effort.

Bottle. Orange peel wheat malt aroma - perhaps a hint of corriander. Golden yellow with moderate head and lacing. Mildly cloying honey wheat flavor - a hint of orange peel and spices. Decent body. Not too bad of an American Wheat - better than average.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light yellow translucent body with a couple inches of white head that takes a little while to dissipate and leaves a good amount of lacing. Smells slightly lemmony and peppery with a hint of honey. Tastes sweet like honey, hints of citrus in the background. Light bodied but by no means watery. Very drinkable. Not much wrong with this one, though it’s a bit simplistic. An easy-drinking beer for a hot day.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours pale golden with a large fluffy white head. Aroma is grass, lemon, and some spice. Flavor is sweet nondescript malt, some corn, a bit of kind of artificial honey, and some wheat in the finish. Not too good: take the regular Blue Moon, replace half of it with a generic pale lager, add some artificial honey, and you’ve got this. Just adding some honey to regular Blue Moon would’ve been a better recipe.

Pours light golden with a large white head. Aroma is light spice, nutmeg, corn, wheat. Flavor is sweet. Corn, wheat, light citrus and spices. Not bad. But sure is not great.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pour is a murky yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a bit on the lemon side but the wet paper bag takes over. Flavor is super weak and watery. Its just a sweet corney mess. There’s honey in here? i think not. Who ever brewed this deserves a cock punch.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle. High expectations with this one, as I love Blue Moon, but entirely disappointing beer. Poured a golden yellow with a foamy, and somewhat lasting head. Light aromas of honey. Very, very bland, watery, on the lines of the worst of the worst pilsners. This is much like Miller Lite with a little bit of honey. Very disappointing.
