The aroma is a light spice coupled with hints of oarnge. Blue Moon is cloudy and light golden in color. There is a light spicey oarnge flavor and the body is medium.

Bottle poured a cloudy yellow. The spice in this beer came through a bit more than any other taste, but there were some fruity orange notes in there. Fairly well balanced beer with a decent amount of carbonation to give it a bit of zest.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2007 Beer is hazy yellow with white head. Aroma is light honey with some orange. Flavor is fairly bland, light citrus and spice. The light body is lifeless and thin.

How can you make a white beer with almost no taste? Refreshing on a hot summer day, with a bit of orange juice in the background. Almost want to put ice in it and call it a beer spritzer.

Pours a nice hazy yellow color. Decent aroma of orange, spices and coriander. Has a slight tartness on the palate with some spicey notes. Body is smooth somewhat full bodied. Finish is quick and dry. A refreshing beer.

Bottle at the Brickskeller (and a million other times because somehow I haven’t rated this one yet): Slightly hazy yellow with a bit of an orange tint. Medium white head sticks atop the beer and provdes some nice lacing around the glass. The aroma is estery, showing off more clove than banana, a hint of corriander, spice, and light fruit notes. Taste is spicy (corriander, clove, pepper) with notes of banana, floral hops, toast, and a bit of wheat. Light-medium bodied, excellent medium carbonation, tiny bubbles that really cleanse the palate.

This is the beer I used to drink before discovering the world of RateBeer. I had it yesterday because it was a $2 draft and it still has some good sweetness with its coriander, orange and spice tones. It still has a decent body but it seems to go flat easily and it really isn’t interesting enough for me to call it a Belgian White. Drinkibility is there but the taste is above average at best.

Murky, golden/tan, white head fading fast. I’ve always liked the packaging, so an extra point for appearance. Aromas starts dry and floral with lemon, but turns rather harsh and nutty as it warms, with an inkling of burnt toast. Spicy flavor, mildly sweet/sour on a wheat base. Dry palate, but leaves a phlegmy throat and roof-of-mouth. Too unrefined to be a good Wit.
