I was expecting more taste from this beer. Itís smooth but with little honey or flavor. Decent aroma but overall I would not buy it again and instead stick with regular blue moon.

Bottle into goblet. Almost no head that disappeared instantly. Almost flat w v low carbonation. Now looks like apple juice. Aroma minimal - some hints of sweetness and citrus. Flavor quite pleasant - honey, green apples, mild orange notes. Would be better if there was some carbonation in the beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty much what you except....blue moon with a bigger punch of sweetness and citrus. Not horrible, just pretty bland

Pours a very pretty clear and bright straw color. Awesome head. Doesnít last long, some lacing. I was hoping for some sediment.

Smells very much of honey right at the front. I pick up some grassy hops. Maybe some sort of spice. Not much else. But it smells really nice.

Taste is sweet. Honey is strong right at the front. I can taste the wheat. Thereís a little spice there. I donít really taste any orange peel.I

Mouthfeel is dry. I can taste the honey in the aftertaste too. I love honey so maybe Iím rating it a little higher than I normally would because of that. Itís smooth and drinkable. Itís dry. Itís pretty refreshing. Itís medium-light.

Overall, itís good. Itís not amazing. But the honey in this really makes the beer. I might buy this again, might not. Iím not as impressed as I thought I would. It is worth a try.

12 oz single bottle from Mile High Wine & Spirits as "Summer Honey Wheat". Clear, dark yellow appearance with a ring of white head, eventually fully dissipating. Aroma of honey, floral notes, wheat bread and light orange peel. Similar flavor, mildly sweet with a thin body. Not very good overall. Pairing: Widespread Panic - Geraldine & the Honey Bee

Tastes like Blue Moon but with a sweet citrus taste. Tastes a little better than their traditional brew.

Bottle. Golden color with a white head. Aroma is grain and a slight citrus note. Taste has a slight bitterness.

It seemed like a twist on a Coors. Smelled like Coors and honey. Light golden color. Watery palate with carbonation. Too light as a matter of fact. Pale and wheat malt with a touch of honey but the adjunct aftertaste is what threw me. Bleh.

Pours a nice orange color with a thin white head that vanished quickly. A bit of citrus aroma and that about it. Mild spice flavor with a little sweetness. Honey? It was served with a nice orange wedge so I got my daily dose of vitamin C. This was better than expected but should have been colder. Itís sure as hell the best Iíve tried from Miller/Coors.

Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle purchased at Shop Rite Liquors. Pours a clear, golden color with lots of fluffy white head. Has a slight aroma of honey but mostly watered down. The taste is the same as the aroma, wish it had some more honey character to it.
