1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
So bashing Blue Moon is fun and productive. We all know that. But can we be objective in the face of scorn aimed at a fake microbrewery? Of course not. But who cares, because, as I said, making fun of Blue Moon is fun and productive. Pours a fizzy, weak amber, with pale edges that hint at its Coorsiness. Smell is piss-beer infused with exotic Keiffer Lime leaves and lime peel, bringing out the freshness of urine in the Spring. Tastes sweet, soapy, with something waaaaay back in the aftertaste approaching a limelike twang. Not much, like an aphid on the back of a rhinoceros on the deck of an aircraft carrier. (4/19/09)

Bottle: June 0808 on the bottle, roughly three years old HAH, lets see how this held up? Amberish in color, slight haze, moderate to large frothy off-white head, nice lacing. Musty wheaty aroma, a little dank and basement like. Also has this really subdued Kriek like aroma. Wonder if thats the Lime or the Keiffer leaves doing that. Wheaty on the tongue, flavor profile is that of a wheaty like Kriek ale. Weird, and I bet almost better than when this stuff is fresh. Not a big Kieffer Lime leaf fan. This is bizarre, much better than I expected as its not what I think what was intended for this beer. Three years of aging ey? Not very strong on the tongue, but no real off flavors either. This has turned into something really interesting. This reminds me once of a beer that completely transformed into something else, a Dogfish Head Punkin Ale. After 3 years the damn thing tasted like strawberries. This is that kind of experience, a beer that seems to have been totally transformed into something different, and unexpected. Wished I tried this fresh and compared it to a three year version.   HAH, cant believe I sat on this for three years... never thought I would ever drink it.   Yeah, it was cellar clearing time...

On Tap. Seriously, this beer tastes like rubber and plastic, this is not a craft beer, it is brewed in mass quantities by industrial breweries that rely on their marketing over everything else.

Based from memory, among the best Blue Moon offerings, a little lime, typical Blue Moon wheat, easy to drink and very sessionable.

Appearance? The bottle is pretty. Pint glasses are for little girls. Hooah! Earthy grainy aroma. Soapy watery metallic grain taste. Blucky!

Bottle, pours light caramel with a medium off white head. Strong wheat aroma with light lime notes. Flavor is strong wheat with a lime syrup kind of thing in the finish. Not bad. Thanks for bringing to the party Steve.
