12 oz bottle from the spring variety pack. Pours filtered golden with a collapsing white head. Aroma is citrusy (rind, definitely), wheaty. Taste is lightly sweet and finishes a little bitter. The citrus is dialed back, making this taste mostly like any run of the mill bland blonde ale. Highly carbonated, thin body, creamy mouthfeel, watery. Pretty dull, but no offnotes.

355 ml bottle in New York, Light pour with a big white head. Aroma is faint and dusty. Taste is citrus, lots of dough, and palate is kinda dusty.

The head is ok, the body golden. It smells a bit citrussy, less hoppy. The taste is sweet, a bit hoppy, bit citrus. Not tasty. 11/7/6/7/12/7

Bottle. Pours a very clear amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is very light - I can get faint whiffs of citrus and wheat off of it, but there isn’t much to it. Taste is a little sweet with the taste and feel of a wheat beer, but not much flavor to it. Whatever...

scooterbub (813) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - APR 14, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a golden color with a thin white head that fades. Taste is of malt, citrus, caramel, wheat, orange and lemon. Similar, clean aroma. Has a decent body that finishes clean. Refreshing, easy to drink and rather enjoyable.

Chudwick (1965) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - MAR 30, 2013
12oz bottle - poured into a red soho cup. Nose is typical for style: cardboard and citrus. Flavor adds orange peel. Sweet and tart. Refreshing and exceeded my expectations.

jmagnus87 (2333) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear, dark gold with minimal head. Aroma of lakewater and light citrus...hmmm. taste is light sweet. Sugarwater, dank wheat and a little citrus. Medium bodied with a slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation but not much of a finish. Overall meh. Doesn’t taste like any blondes ive had before.

Not a whole lot of fruit in the aroma for having lemon and orange, but thankfully, both in the body and the aroma there is more orange than lemon. Overall, I thought this was a pretty drinkable golden ale. Seems a bit underrated to me - may be the Coors effect.

fidelis83 (1901) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Dark, peach gold pour with a thin head. Floral notes, citrus, dust and dishwater to the weak aroma. Flavor is the same with some light mineral notes and stale vegetable oil. Palate is light and dry with a light carbonation and slightly slick, oily feel. Not good, though it is less dishwater like than others in the Blue Moon lineup.

clear straw orange pour with white head that disipates almost immediately. Visible carbonation in the beer. Wheat, corn, and flowers. I’d say more orange blossom with the leaf still attached than the fruit itself. Taste light wheat with a floral and citrus hint. Thin body. Easy to drink but not much flavor.
