On tap. really enjoyed this one or two. Served with orange slices, enhanced the flavor. Will drink again.

Thin, white head. Slight citrusy aroma. Citrus taste-definitely can taste the orange. Smooth, refreshing beer. Very slight carbonation. Sweet aftertaste.

Cloudy with a small white head. Mild aroma of citrus. Flavor is sweet malt with citrus and coriander. Light and refreshing, but not my favorite style.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2005 Tastes better on tap then in the bottle. Very unique cloudy look. A sweet flavor that for the most part people drinking it have to be in the proper mood.

draft....cloudy orange appearance with medium white head. aroma is a tad indistinct...a touch of citrus notes and hops...flavor is actually quite appetizing (orange peel, lemony hops)...palate is average

Bottle&Draft: This beer is suprisingly sweet. It has a mild aroma and taste, not too complex, overpowering or fantastic, but nothing rubs me the wrong way like most macros now do. Its major flavors are citrus (orange) and vanilla. Has a cloudy appearnce with a nice white head and some carbonation.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2009 Draft. Served with an orange slice for variety. Guess this is kind of the "Shoebox Greetings" of the megabeers. Surprisingly cloudy… does that mean it’s unpasteurized? Fine white head and a soft wheat taste that’s actually a bit chewy. A touch of coriander without the yeasty esters of other wits. Finishes light, but then I get some hint of adjunct corns. Nice lacing.

TINOZACCA (146) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2005
Although I like this beer, I need to be in the mood for it. It has a very strange orangey flavor. And most people do put an orange slice in it. It comes out very cloudy, as if it is going to be a very thick drink. It is very full of flavor, but I can’t stand more than one. The orange flavor just doesn’t do it for me.

Hazmatt (363) - Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2007 Draught and bottle. cloudy straw/golden, white head. Draught was served with orange slice. Not a whole lot of aroma. Malty, sweet, nice wheat balnce, citrus and coriander, tangy and refreshing. Some yeast flavors as well.

3.8
Contra (30) - USA - AUG 18, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2006 It should be noted that there can be a big difference from bottle to bottle with this beer. On tap, especially with a wedge of orange, it’s almost always silky and refreshing. Very even carbonation, with flavor of yeast and wheat. Again, there are times when Blue Moon isn’t as good as normal, but for the most part, it’s quite good. I’ve noticed this same problem with Coors Light (a bad to decent beer for it’s class), and considering that Coors distributes Blue Moon, there might be something to it.
