decent beer for a girl. sweet and fruity but with a twist that needs covering. no wonder they mask it with an orange slice. im nicknaming this one "needs a pair".

12 oz bottle, best before March 12 06 printed on the bottle neck.
Hazy golden in color, small fizzy head.
aroma is wheat, corn, some corriander, maybe some clove, a little sourness. Flavor was creamy wheat with some corriander spice thrown in.
Not terrible, I could see myself drinking this again, just not paying for it.

Poured with average sized creamy white head, did exhibit some lacing. Nose of wheat and citrus and perhaps some coriander?. Initial taste is slightly sweet, finish is a little light, but spicy and leaves a nice aftertaste. To be quite honest, I am suprised something this good comes out of Coors. Im afraid there may be some macro-bias in some of the reviews though.

This is a great beer, one of my favorites. Pours a golden cloudy haze with a decent.head Tons of citrus flavors in this. Drop an orange in it, double the fun.

nice cloudy body, with a decent foamy head. I hate the stupid orange they give you. The beer stands on its on without the fruit(it already has enough fruit and spice) pretty much a traditional white ale.I prefer Sam Adams white spring ale more, but not a bad brew.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2008 Re-rating this one up. Had it again and enjoyed it very much. Served with an orange slice (why?). Aroma was delicious fruit and wheat. Flavor was same as aroma. Both held well up through the end of the glass.

Draft. Had a sweet citrusy aroma. The flavor, that which could be tasted (not much to begin with), had similar citrus elements. A very drinkable beer, but no notes of distinction.

Blue Moon. Hmmmmm. Sit down at the bar looking for a halfway decent brew out of the meager selection. They got Blue Moon a decent Witbeer. I order. The bring back a mug with an orange on the side, so I throw the orange in the ashtray and continue to taste the beer. A very cloudy light yellow consistency with minimal white head. Wheaty, very citrusy, and spices. And a note to the bartenders out there stop putting oranges on the side of witbeers. I like the taste of the beer and dont need to dilute it with an orange.

12 oz. bottle. Hazy, light gold pour, looks a bit darker that other witbiers I have tried. Quick fading white head, almost no lacing. Nose is mostly coriander and wheat. Flavor matches the nose, mostly coriander and wheat. While smooth, it does not excite the tongue like better whites. The coriander flavor really hangs with you in the finish, detracting from an otherwise pretty good experience. I am shocked, however, to find out that this is a Coors product - not great, but CLEARLY the best this brewer has to offer - head and shoulders above the other Coors products. NOTE: sampled this back to back with the Hoegaarden White, and the Hoegaarden was so good I may have been too harsh on the Blue Moon. Either way, if you like this beer, nail down a Hoegaarden - you wont go back!
