Bottle. Poured a dirty straw colour with a nice light tan head, with excellent lacing. Nose of sweet sweet malt and hints of citrus. Taste lacks body, and might be overcarbonated, but definitely not very good. I think the best word to describe this beer is bland.

"an ok offering. lite in aroma and flavor with some citrus (orange peel) and honey definitely present. doesn’t do much to distinguish itself, but not offensive either."

"pours a yellow golden color with a very thick, fluffy, slightly off-white head, with some bubbles and little-to-no lacing. The aroma is faint, but one can detect a touch of lemon zest and white bread. The taste is of white wheat bread, lemons, orange, and just a tiny amount of hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium and somewhat soft, and somewhat finishes refreshing."

Not awful but what can you expect from blue moon spin-offs, interesting wheat ale, trying to be a microbrew but cannot get away from BM.

Sometimes, retirement is a good thing. I’m not sure what they made this out of, but it seems more like corn than wheat. The lime is unnecessary, or at least unnecessarily metallic.

2010 vintage bottle from the back of my buddies "beer fridge"!! This did not age too badly. Typical skunky blue moon wheat with a little roses lime juice. Meh, it was probably much better fresh.

In the Kansas City area, this is not easily found. Very good for what’s turning into a mass produced product.

From notes. First reviewed 5/2/2010. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. The head bubbles up to 3 cm as I pour it, but before I put the bottle down it is completely gone. Very pale golden amber color, with light visible carbonation rising in the glass. Trying to find any real aroma here almost made me think I had a cold. There is just nothing there. Some subdued malt aroma, nothing related to lime or citrus. Extremely processed sort of taste. More corn than malt flavor; what malt is there is of the pale variety. Lime shows up as it warms a little bit. Finishes sweet and chemically smooth. Fizzy soda pop tingling sensation from the carbonation, but only a little bit crisp. Mostly watery in a light-to-medium body. Almost a chemical residue after each sip. This was a very boring beer. I might adjust rankings if this was moved to the adjunct category, but as is, this is just not worth drinking.
