Tinged with a syrupy, frothy honey undertone, this seasonal offering is pleasant as a dessert beer to go with a fleshy hunk of pound cake. The wheat absorbs the coriander and honey and acts as a canvas for the summer flavors to take hold. The complexity here - while not artisan - is still a tier higher than Blue Moon’s other offerings.

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.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2016 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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(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

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.

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.
