355ml bottle from The Beer Cellar 171013. As with all of the Blue Moon beers I have had this one is quite good. Faint sweetness in the background and even though the body is a bit thin and wispy in the mouth it still goes down a treat.

This is a descent beer. Nothing special but its just a nice crisp beer with enough flavour to make it interesting.

Ok, for those several people who know nothing about fermentation and somehow find themselves reading some random asshole’s opinion of a Blue Moon seasonal: adding agave nectar to the beer you brew would not make it sweeter. It ferments into alcohol. Adding sugar be it hone, agave nectar, just straight out sugar or whatever, actually makes it more dry. Anyway, in case you couldn’t guess, my main problem w/ this beer is it’s kind of sweet and hence kind of gross because there is no flavor to play off the sweetness. It does at least pour a nice golden color and has a nice ring of head but the appearance is really the best thing about it. There is nothing really wrong w/ the nose though. It’s unexceptional w/ sort of a cut hay and grain husk thing going on. If it weren’t oddly sweet, this would be pretty much in line w/ any cheap American beer w/ it’s mild flavor and crisp carbonation. Instead, this has an exaggerated sugary malt sweetness. It is not over-the-top or anything but enough that each sip is marred by this lingering saccharine note on the tongue. It is actually disappointing because my first impression of the aroma lead me to think this might be a halfway decent beer.

Well, it’s not terrible. Had a bottle at home. Pours a nice color for a wheat, actually. Had an orange/ coppery tint and a decent head. Bit of haze to it, nice cabonation. The agave kind of ruins it- too strong. I suppose mass produced beers have to play to the sweet loving palate. The wheat is actually nice. Needs some hoppiness. And finish is strange. Almost decent.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold, with a big, bubbly, off-white head. The aroma is honey, melons, strong floral notes, and some light esters. Very sweet flavor, with little balance. Light to medium body, slightly creamy, and a little acerbic. Overall, this is a pretty nice, flavorful, and drinkable beer, but it comes across a little too strong on the fruity aromas, and is much too sweet.

Just a little bit higher then average whet ale. I’m not a fan of agava so this aroma was not for me. Overall, drinkable and refreshing

Bottle. Tastes sweet, malty, like light fruit and cucumber. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like cool crisp cucumber and malt.

tillmac62 (767) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - MAY 7, 2014
BBD 8/25/14. Clear light amber (golden) pour with a fair head and lacing. Retention is normal. Light aroma of biscuit and wheat over a slight honey sweetness. Light medium body with a not quite smooth texture. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is rather nice in a subtle fashion and well balanced. It begins with biscuit then flows into a subtle agave sweetness. The finish is smooth.

From bottle. Moderate gold color, no head. Nondescript nose. Nondescript taste. Didn’t get much from the agave. Must not have plunked the right citrus fruit into the glass.

arsonm2s (1) - canoga park, California, USA - APR 22, 2014 does not count
Was expecting more from the agave, nothing much seems to be going on here. Macro brewery crap
