3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells very much like Blue Moon, with cloves and butter. Aroma has light citrus and coriander. Refreshing and light body, but tastes good enough. Lightly bitter herbal finish. Cloudy yellow.

Bottle: Pours a slightly hazy gold with a white head. Aroma, coriander, citrus, light bready notes. Flavor, wheat, citrus, some coriander again, some yeasty/bready notes. Smooth, with a bit of a floral quality towards the end, not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy, whitish yellow pour. Pungent aroma of pimento spiced salami and adhesive. Definitively different. Notes of wheat and orange under the salty topsoil. Green olive hints pervade the flavor to a similar degree. A quiet hint of coriander shoots for the standard a little. Apple tartness. Fruity esters of pear and pineapple. Starts to get a little sweaty with warmth. Yeast puts a word in. Clean palate, with a bit of sourness that slowly sharpens. A unique, kind of peculiar example.

Not bad... Pours hazy straw into the glass with an initially decent head.... sudsy lace. This stuff looks like liquid smoke, no kidding. The yeast hangs in a cloud in the middle of the brew. Pumpkin pie spices and yeast to the nose. The flavors are light, a bit dry, and of yeast and spices. Crisp dry mouthfeel and a spicy finish let this go down easily. Good carbonation levels accentuate the body (light and zesty). Nice for a hot summer night.

Pale gold color pour. Very spicy nose but the flavor is considerably lighter. Pretty good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Just a little heavy handed with the coriander. Nice beer, though. I would choose this over the lighter and less interesting blue moon. More of everything. Ugly label. Good beer.

I thought this one smelled a bit better than it tasted - nice swet, spicy floral aroma. While the flavor wasn’t bad, it seemed a flinty and harsh. Seemed almost more like an American Wheat with a few Belgian characteristics. But I enjoyed it, for the most part.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Has that familiar sour aroma and a bit of citrus. Palate is wheat, some yeast. Like the look, cloudy and some lasting clingy suds. A serviceable beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy yellow body and sediment floating around the bottom. Thick foamy white head that clings to the edges of the glass. Corriander and yest dominate the wheat nose. Faint undercurrents of bitter orange in the nose. Wheat flavor rushes forward and is promptly followed coriander and again orange on the finish, though the bitter peel character in the nose doesn’t make much of an appearance in the flavor.
