Hazy orange-yellow, barely a small white head and even that doesn’t last. Sweet candyish orange, very mild spice in the aroma. Flavour is more bland than expected, mild bitterness and muted muddled yeast and orange. Not quite medium body, but the palate is excellent for a macro brew. Thanks for this one beerandblues2.

This is not bad coming out of a macrobrewery. Blue Moon is the Coors Brewing Company’s best beer. For an ale, it has a very crisp taste like the hefeweizen.

12 oz. bottle - pours a hazy golden color, with a decent head that dissapates quickly. Very little lacing. Aroma is mostly wheat with strong hints of coriander and spices. Flavor is right on with the aroma, mostly coriander and wheat. Mouthfeel is smooth and a tad spicy, very nice. Finish is short and dominated with nuances of coriander. This is actually a very nice beer, especially for a mass-market beer from Coors.

decent beer for a girl. sweet and fruity but with a twist that needs covering. no wonder they mask it with an orange slice. i’m 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. I’m 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.
