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.

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.

haddon90 (1562) - Costa Mesa, California, USA - MAY 24, 2007
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.

A yellow color with a thin head. This had a very fresh aroma with some futiy characters. Liked the flavor and the finish was not too bad. A nice easy to drink after mowing the lawn beer.

Draft at the Rusty Rudder on Lake Norman, NC. Served with an orange wedge for some reason, beer looks a cloudy gold color with minimal head. Aroma of citrus and wheat. The flavor is sweet with honey. Although drinkable, wasnít impressed with it.

JPDIPSO (5124) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 23, 2007
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...
