UPDATED: MAY 4, 2008 Perhaps not as perfect as real Blue Moon, the lime IS good. Fresh tasting it is an unusual combo of the wheat and citrus, but none the worse for it. Try it if you are feeling a little adventurous. Mot one to drink over and over perhaps.

Quite pleasant and refreshing, with a little zing of lime flavor. Attractive amber pour with a soft, foamy head. A satisfying drink.

Not as fragrant as I would have thought, but another winner from Blue Moon. Love the amber color, which I was not expecting (thought it would be golden). Refreshing and well balanced.

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 .

poured with quite a large head... lots of lacing... not a very strong aroma at all... taste was thin but refreshing... was expecting more of a lime taste that seemed to be absent... finished the beer quite quickly and wanted another... a beer I would pick up for a casual day outdoors

Simply a delicious, refreshing and unigue Spring Ale. A nice balanced and crisp tartness from the Keiffer lime leaves and lime peel. Very smooth and fresh taste and a unigue flavor. Great Job Blue Moon!

Nice golden amber or light brown in color with a nice white head. Smelled like a belgian white with a hint of lime. Not too bad of a beer. Fresh, clean taste. Would be good on a hot day.
