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.

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 itís an evening on the porch or at a bbq, this beer is perfect.

My favorite Blue Moon product. Pours a hazy gold, with a decent head. Smells of citrus and also the citrus taste is felt very prominently, mainly at the back of the mouth. This is a very good summer ale, close to one of my favorites.

Fantastic - wish they would bring it back into production. Tasty, nice flavor - love the fact it is strongly citrus. Great on the boat & in the bar - would love it year round.

Magnificent!!! Pretty sweet for a summer ale, and with noticeable hints of orange peel and maybe some honey (faint). Thereís an odd wheaty characteristic to this brew, unlike anything Iíve had in years, but itís refreshing! Almost zesty. Iíd wager this brew is EVEN better than the regular Blue Moon, which is saying something! Utterly terrific summer lawnmower beer.

A great summer ale. Light taste with a hint of honey and superb drinkability. Great with a light cigar. Not an evening or or dessert beer.

I am pretty picky about the beer I drink. I donít like a really dark, ígrittyí kind of beer. This is probably why I like this beer so much. Itís light in appearance, and smooth to the palate, but not bland at all. Iíve tried it both freezing cold, and room temperature, and itís great both ways, however, being an American, I tend to prefer it very cold. Definitely one of my favorite beers of all time.

A really great ale. I donít have fancy explanations like most people here but if your an average beer drinker like me youíll probably love this stuff!
