330ml bottle into glass. As Summer Honey Wheat. Cloudy amber beer with solid white head. Fine steady carbonation. Very faint wheat nose. Slight mineral water mouthfeel. Finish is faintly sweet, faintly sour. Not bad but not very interesting.

Tastes pretty similar to the regular Blue Moon Belgian White, but is slightly sweeter and unfortunately is filtered. I prefer my wheat beers to be unfiltered.

Pyobon (1251) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 13, 2016
(Bottle) Pours clear amber golden with essentially no head. Aroma is cardboard with a hint of sweetness. Light bodied with plenty of rather fizzy carbonation. Taste is light and sweet, rather sugary than honey. Some bitterness in finish. Easy drinking I guess, but light and sweet and I wouldn’t choose it again

Maris (1305) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 13, 2016
From a 330ml bottle on 14/2/2016. Pours a clear light golden with a small head. There’s very little to the nose, with the barest hint of wheat. Taste wise, it’s very sweet, with orange and honey notes set off against very mild spices and wheat flavours, with the barest bittnerss . Light bodied with average carbonation. Okay.

Its a good eeay drinking wheat beer. Not to strong with the malty flavors. Kind of like a light beer.

Sickly sweet. Mediocre dull flat water. Nothing about this is worth a flip. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 11/23/2015. Pours lightly hazy golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, honey, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aroma with good balance of pale malt, honey/orange peel, fruity yeast, and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon orange peel, pear, apple, honey, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, honey, wheat, cracker, biscuit, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance and robustness of pale malt, honey/orange peel, fruity yeast, and light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Fair amount of dryness after the finish as well. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good Pale wheat ale style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt, honey/orange peel, fruity yeast, and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Kavu (3680) - 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.
