A 12 oz bottle with best buy date on printed on the bottle. The beer poured a dark yellow body with a creamy light tan head. The smell was of faint malt and not much else. A taste of sweet malt and wheat with a faint lime taste. Nice carbonation and good mouth feel. A good spring beer .

Bottles compliments of Beer Buddy. Nice golden pour with a thin white bubbly head. Stale aroma of malt. Flavor is of wheat beer and lime. Aftertaste is all lime. I’m used to drinking regular Blue Moon on tap with an orange. I’ve drank plenty of Mexican Beers with lime. For some reason this one doesn’t work for me. It tastes like I was drinking a margarita and then someone offered to fill my glass with beer while it was still quarter filled w/margarita. I’m glad it was free, because I doubt that I will pay money for this one. I’ll stick with Blue Moon original.

nice amber color, lots of bubbles, and not much head. The lime after taste sort of sneeks up on you and is very pleasantly pleasing. I like this more than the winter ale that is served with an orange. Haven’t seen this one yet served in a bar. I’d assume that it will be served with a lime

Not a lot here, and nowhere near as good as the wit. This is an American wheat with light citrus and key limes. There is no sediment. It is light red and there is a thin layer of foam. Herbal finish.

Bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a thin head. Nose is lightly fruited and even more lightly displaying a lime essence. Flavor continues with light fruit and microscopic lime notes. Bitter in the finish reminiscent of the lime zest/pith. I had hoped that this was going to be interesting, however, I hoped wrong.

Orange body with a pink tone. Nose of wheat and a bit of coriander. Flavor is wheatie with a bit of spice. Lime MIGHT be noted, but I’m not positive… Tried this one with dinner and there was freshly squeezed lime juice in my rice…

optemoz (171) - Apex, North Carolina, USA - FEB 17, 2007
Bottled - Pours an amber with a small white head...very small hint of lime on the nose.. the rest is bready yeast with a little alcohol... the taste is very wheaty and citrusy.. im a fan of the regular blue moon.. and this is a nice spring addition..

Hazy golden color, obvious lime in the nose. The bready wheat taste in this beer is a little overpowering; to be honest, it overpowers the heavily touted Keifer limes.

Pours a clear amber golden with a small white head. Aroma is mild with a little lime. Flavor is has a slight touch of lime along with some wheat and malt. Finishes light on the palate.

Why do I think of the McKenzie Brothers when I drank this beer for the first time. Oh yeah! The classic movie Strange Brew! It looks like an ale, a nice amber with a not so foamy head, and the aroma is decently nutty and hoppy. The lime isn’t overpowering, but doesn’t match that well with the ale. If Blue Moon had added these flavors to their Wheat Beers, I think they’d have a winner. As is, it is an unusual ale, with a peculiar finish.
