2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
17th August 2008. Clear amber beer. A wheat beer but feels like a lager. The lime is pretty subtle and really only noticeable in the aftertaste. Refreshing and subtle.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of light citrus and yeast/spice? Coppery amber color with a decent, lasting white head. Thin to medium body with mild, sort of chewy, carbonation. The flavor is wheat, lime indeed, and it seems some spice. The finish is a bit papery, but not all that bad, and the citrus helps out. Pretty refreshing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Krogers. Poured a hazy amber with a moderate frothy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Light sweet citrus aroma. Light body with soft carbonation. Light bittersweet citrus flavor with a light bitter finish. Worth trying once.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Yellow color, rather small white head. Way to thin aroma. Flavor is pretty much the same. Citrus and some hops, but this is really not a wheat beer to me. At leats not a good one...

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle… Clear amber ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Great retention. Grainy, fruity aroma provides subtle notes of pale grains, caramel/crystal malts and a touch of lime. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with lively carbonation. Well-balanced and technically nice, but uninspiring; pulling up just shy of nondescript. Short, crisp, clean finish. Refreshing, at least.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz bottle. Amber-golden beer, creamy off-white head. Aroma is of caramelly industrial pale malt. Flavour has a fairly citrusy limey quality that isn’t there in the aroma at all. The citrus gives it a soapy and fairly nasty quality. Meh... the worst fo the Blue Moon seasonals I’ve had so far.
