Bottle pours a clear amber body with a medium offwhite head that leaves some minor lacing. Lots of carbonation bubbles in the body. Aroma is weak, with hints of lime and wheat malt. Light body is briskly carbonated. Taste has a some lime and wheat malt. Drinkable, but disappointing.

bubbleflubber (1743) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Pours golden-amber into the glass, with a small frothy head that leaves mild lace. The nose is of corn and stale grains. Flavors are underdone, some macro corn oversees the whole thing, unfortunately. There are stale grains, a bit of yeast, and maybe a hint of lime... nothing superb whatsoever. Not the best offering of the Blue Moon line. Boring mouthfeel and man, whatís with all the corn notes?

Boliv (1148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2010
Bottle. Pours copper with a foamy eggshell-colored head. Aroma is light wheat, mild hops, and slight citrus, not unlike Budweiser with citrus added. Flavor is sweet malt and sugar, but whereís the lime? Iím not getting anything here. Crisp, smooth, and below average.

Amber. Clear. Little head. Light sweet malt and dusty aroma. Flavor matches. Canít find a speck of lime to save my life. Not good.

12 oz bottle into shaker. Aroma of Sweet-Tarts, cheap grain. Pours amber gold with a medium dissipating head and decent lacework which vanishes three quarters of the way down the glass. Taste is caramel malty with just a hint of lime. Highly carbonated; a bit oily. This beer used to be so much better a few years ago. All of Blue Moonís seasonals have gone down the toilet as original Blue Moon gains in popularity. Itís like Coors is trying to cater to the masses by making their Blue Moon beers increasingly boring. Their Honey Moon and Harvest Moon (formerly known as just their Pumpkin Ale) used to be excellent as well (the winter one has always sucked as far as I know). All are dull as shit now. Whatís up with that, Coors? Wankers...

Lubiere (9731) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2010
A golden wheat ale with a thin white head. In aroma, a lightly fruity and esters aroma, solventy. In mouth, a chalky boring wheat...really boring. Tasted at CNY brewfest, Feb. 6 2010.

Sparky (2133) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 10, 2010
Pours clear medium gold with a thin beige head that faded almost immediately. The nose is wheat a sweet lemongrass. The taste is grain, light wheat and limeaid. Medium bodied. Meh, not horrible but will never be considered even a decent wheat.
