Very mild aroma with a light pleasant flavor. Lovely on the palette, crisp wheat taste. This is a great light hot summer evening beer. Whether it’s an evening on the porch or at a bbq, this beer is perfect.

Kavu (3129) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 15, 2015
12oz bottle as Blue Moon Summer Honey Wheat from Whole Foods, Santa Fe. Pours clear golden with a low head. Aroma is malts and honey. Flavor is malts with some sweetness. Disappointingly thin and ordinary.

Picked up as part of a variety pack. Hints of spice in the aroma. Nice head on the pour, with a golden color. The flavor is honey and a hint of citrus. I found this to be very average. Would drink it again, but would not go out if my way to find it.

Bottle @ home. giallo ambrato leggermente velata schiuma bianca non molto fine poco persistente. Aroma maltato (miele d’acacia), leggermente agrumato debole erbaceo. Dolce amabile, acidula, poco amara. leggermente tostato il gusto. Molto carbonata, poco corposa, non calda, rotonda.

Really mild. Has a vanilla smell. Blue Moon flavors taste cheap to me. It okay, not great.

bennetporter (443) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Pours a dark straw from a bottle. Aroma of honey. Flavor is kind of like a standard pale lager with some honey added, even though this is an ale. I don’t know, feels somehow fake. Meh.

chinchill (3223) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 11, 2015
12 oz bottle in pint glass golden straw color with modest white head of limited duration. Virtually no lacing. Plenty of visible carbonation. A sweet, light flavored, and light bodied beer. Intended to be served cold on hot days, this beer holds up better than some other summer beers to warming. Some malt and wheat flavor lingers into the finish along with a modicum of light orange flavor.

samzim (348) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2015
Citrus and honey aroma. Clear gold colour. Bitter front with sweet finish; flavours of honey, melon, and banana. Light body with lively carbonation. A pleasant enough beer.
