Very bland and uninteresting. Rather flat with little to no head. Medium gold color. Kind of a skunky back end. Not a very good tasting beer at all.

BiiruBierBeer (579) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Smell is faint forest/pine/hops. Honestly just tastes like a wheat ale. Maybe a slight hint of the orange and lemon going down, but not much. Aftertaste is short to medium length and is bready. Again, light hints of citrus and a slight green apple-y bitterness hangs on the tongue. Medium carbonation. Fizzy. Not very foamy at all. Easy to drink.

Aged bottle from Wegmans variety pack. Straw pour with minimal off-white head. Pale malt, wheat, mild hops in the nose, thin palate.

"Meh. Either I’ve hit my (low) blue moon saturation point, or this is one of the weaker ones. Thin and tingly, no depth, weak combo of lemon orange and spice. Nothing really good going on here."

Transfer from BA rated on 2-26-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a nice clear golden color. There is a billowy just off white head which fades quite fast to leave a thin white head on the top of the beer, but very little lacing on the sides of the glass Smell – Citrus notes are most heavy up front. The larger of the citrus is orange with is mixed in with a bit of lemon. There is an ever so light bready-wheat aroma as well. Overall the aromas are quite light. Taste – Malty wheat sweetness and caramel are the first flavor to meet the tongue. It is rather surprising from the nose which is stronger in the citrus. The citrus in the taste comes more toward the middle and the end and is actually quite light. It is a very smooth and subtle taste transition, although the taste does lack much of the complexity of the other blue moon brews as well as other beers of similar style. Mouthfeel – The body is of light to medium thickness. It passes the tongue very quickly. The carbonation is a bit on the high side, but good for the style and body type. It’s feel makes it very easy to down. Overall – The beer has a nice flavor, but for the most part is rather one dimensional. It’s refreshing and one for a hot day perhaps.

Bulk_Carrier (2672) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a clear blonde colored body, three finger worth of foamy white head after thirty seconds dies to film of a head, some foamy lacing graces the sides of the glass. The smell had some wheat, lemon, light malts. The taste was sweet through previously mentioned flavor. On the palate, it sat about a medium, sessionable, some light harshness on the tongue, no aftertaste, yet a sweet finish. Overall, this is a beer that is just a tad above average to me. Maybe not something I would rush out to buy but I think I would have it again.

Silvan7 (852) - Samarate, ITALY - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle @ home. Schiuma bianca. abbastanza fine ed abbastanza persistente. Colore ambrato carico, opalescente. Aroma fruttato, di scorza d’arancia, frutta candita, un po’ di erbaceo, forse coriandolo. Gusto dolce amabile, poco intenso, discreta acidità, poco amara. visto lo stile e la presenza dell’avena me la sarei aspettata molto più amara, invece sono la dolcezza e l’acidità a farla da padrona. Non molto equilibrata, poco armonica.

"Light gold pour with a small head that quickly disappears. Very little in the way of aroma or flavor which is not surprising. A hint of lemon just peaks out from the grainy wheat. "
