NOt a good honey aroma. Taste is light and a bit creamy, but mostly there isn’t much here. Not a big fan of honey in beers.

Bottled as Honey Moon Summer Ale. The aroma is trashy with junk corn malt, orange, and a tiny bit of honey. The appearance is bright yellow with a decent white head. The flavor is like the aroma with very few redeeming qualities. The palate is thin with a light sweet citrus aftertaste. I half way like the regular blue moon (as it was my gateway into better beers) but this is junk.

This is way better than the Sam Adams version of this style. You get banana, malt, and a faint citrus flavor. Shows a bit thicker and cloudier as well. Honey comes through to give this beer a little more depth. Decent beer for its style.

JohnnyJ (4729) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 12, 2007
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.

brigg (529) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 12, 2007
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.

shrubber85 (8321) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 11, 2007
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.

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 11, 2007
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.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2007
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.
