On draft in a pub somewhere in Glasgow, UK. Slightly hazy yellow/orange colored, white head. Very fruity, mainly orange, wheat. Reasonably well-bodied. Not very complex, but refreshing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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. "

Average in taste, a bit too much lemon in the aftertaste, just stick with regular Blue Moon.

On tap at OKC Fox & Hound. Pours a near clear amber gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a light flora note with a good amount of sweet wheat and a hint of light fruits. Flavor is lighter with sweet wheat and a touch of light spice and flora.

This beer seemed to have a weird combination of flavors. I didn’t go in one direction or another. Probably would have been better if it had a distinct orange or lemon flavor rather than a mixture of both. The malts didn’t help the situation.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear and light with colors of orange and gold under a thin white collar which fades into a broken film. A slow stream of bubbles breaks the silence.
Sweet rolls, honey rolls. Hint of powdered sugar and angel food cake sweetness. Cold fresh cut apricots and green grapes. Ghostly essence of lemon bread.
Sweet rolls and honey rolls front and center. Green grapes and apricots in the back of the swallow. Bright – tingles atop my tongue. Soft mouthfeel. The sweetness threatens to overwhelm – borderline cloying. Angel food cake in the middle adds to the sweetness. Fresh bananas in the breath.
An OK starter beer but with so many better intro craft beers available on the market, I’d offer the Spring Blonde Wheat Ale to a friend only if it was the only available option. Way too sweet, cloyingly sweet. Tone down the sweetness and enhance the fresh quality of apricots and green grapes would be my 2 cents worth.

Pours a clear golden-amber color with a small off-white head that soon reduces to a lasting ring. The aroma is weak: wheat, hops and some faint malt in the background. More flavor than aroma. In addition to the components detected by nose, there is a light citrus/lemon quality and a grassy note. Light body; nicely dry finish; good, medium carbonation.
O: highly drinkable alternative to a light beer. Certainly works as an accompaniment to yard work and summer weather. Not much flavor or aroma here, but no striking flaws in this refreshing brew.
