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.

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.

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.

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.

Interesting on the first sip, too sweet by the last. Very big clove/wild honey flavor, rich and bold, much more potent then most honey added beers iíve had. Light orange peel compliments the honey. Good beer, but iíd like a bit more subtlety, I donít enjoy this as a summer beer, to sweet for hot days.

Pours a clear golden color with a decent white head. Decent aroma. Some fruit detected. Hints of malt and grain. A nice smooth taste, with a hint of honey and other fruits. Kind of light for a Wheat beer, but overall pretty good. Nice crisp finish.
