I love blue moon. The great taste and delicious hints of citrus make this one of my favorite commercial beers out there.

Antzrhere (99) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2016 From memory. Pours hazy with aroma of yeast phenols and orange. Taste is sweet, smooth with, mild spice, orange and coriander flavours. For some this tastes abit artificial, likely because the typical witbier flavours you expect are coming from added adjuncts instead of the yeast. Abit thin.

Is this just a fancy coors light? Not much flavor, might be good with a slice of orange?

APARIENCIA: de color ámbar con algunos destellos amarillos a contraluz, se observa totalmente turbia pero se alcanza a ver cierta actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color blanco de mediana retención, con burbujas compactas. AROMA: muy cítrica, la cáscara de naranja y el coriandro destacan, algunas notas a pan del trigo, y algo dulce como vainilla. SABOR: de inicio la acidez y ligero dulzor, seguido de las notas cítricas de la cáscara de naranja y coriandro es lo que destaca, algunas notas dulces del trigo y las maltas, pan, vainilla y algo por ahí herbal muy ligero; en el retrogusto queda un amargor ligero con cierta acidez persistente, además de algunas notas cítricas y dulces de forma tenue. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo ligero con una buena sensación sedosa en boca, mediana carbonatación. RESUMEN: agradable, nada destacable.

nihtila (3074) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 22, 2016
Bottle at home. Hazy pale golden. Nose is sugary sweet, malts, banana, lemon, corn, a bit artificial. Tastes continues mostly sugary sweet, light spices, wheat, banana esters, light coriander, bubble gum. Too sweet and I have a feeling the sweetness comes from something it should not.

YigSvartka (304) - Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 13, 2016
Cloudy, nearly opaque orange yellow colour with a near non existent white head. Certainly not undesirable, but also not particularly robust aroma with notes of yeast, banana, orange, and lemon. Extremely light bodied with a soft texture. Taste very much mimics the aroma and texture in that it is smooth and non intrusive consisting of orange, lemon, yeast, and banana with a slight sweet hop present during the finish. Enjoyable if one is fond of oranges.
