Ok, if you are gonna try this, at least put some effort into it. I mean, Coors sorta got it right. This was just a really plain version of the style with no real flavors.

Man, if this was orange soda, it would be great. Smells like Tang, looks like a decent wheat. Taste is fairly bland bordering on sweet. There has got to be a ton of beer knowledge at Anheuser, you’d think they could come up with something better than this.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange juice color; very fruity with strong orange and lime-like scent; very carbonated almost soda-like; very unique taste, yet unsatisfying sugary aftertaste.

Below average wit ale. Aroma is citrius and flavor is same, but tastes like its commercialized (which it is). Not worth the $7.99 a sixer I paid.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap, in a pint glass. Pours thick and syrupy, and feels the same. Heavy additions of corn sugars make it both sweet and unappealing. Some citrus and fruit, but if you’re thinking this is a Blue Moon or other Wit, move along to something else.

So Bud’s version of Blue Moon is a complete failure. Nice head, and average lacing. Hazy yellow. No aroma worth noting. Generic fruit flavor. Supposed to be a mixture of orange, lemon, lime and corriander. Total waste of time.

Not worth trying. If you buy this expecting a beer like Blue Moon or anything similar you WILL be dispointed.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Anheuser-Busch brewery in St-Louis, cloudy yellow-orange hue, with a white head, yeasty, faint citrus fruit nose, with a wheaty, pale malt note, hint of ripe bananas, with a subtle coriander spicy note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, wheaty, fruity, citrusy character, with a refreshing orange juice accent, a subtle coriander spiciness, with a kind of milky fruity orange yoghurt flavor, leading towards a fruity, faint zesty finish.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 Yet another "craft beer" attempt by A-B. I bought a bottle and kept an open mind, though ... and I was curious to see how they’ve come. The beer poured nicely, with a cloudy, yellow-orange hue above a surprisingly nice head, though it faded fast. Nose was sweet (corn, honey) and citrusy (orange). Mouthfeel was light with prickly carbonation. Off-flavor of plastic. Up front, the beer seemed refreshing, but toward the finish it became sticky and cloying. Yeast seemed to be one-dimensional and full of cobwebs. Coriander was noticeable in the background, along with the lemon/lime/orange. Overall, I didn’t think it was horrible, but it had some real problems.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy orange-yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is very orangey and wheaty. A little bit of citrus character but the malts seem a bit lifeless. Fairly thin body. I do like the orange/lemon character. Not bad really.
