Blue moon eh? They should call this stuff the real coors. People would probably drink it more often. I picked this up thinking that I was being original (sorry, I’m a newb) and I look here.....COORS....wtf? So anyway, it’s not bad compared to most american beers. The head...what head? It’s like a 1/8th of an inch thich and disappears faster than Eminem’s career. So the appearance isn’t all that impressive, but the flavor is like....hmmmm, banannas, I agree on that note and is smooth to the palate. Very thick actually. The color is a bit more opaque than other American beers which is probably why they don’t just slap Coors on the label. Anyhow, it’s worth a 6 pack at least and if you hate it, just give it to the moochers. Save the PBR and Schlitz for yourself.

Sort of a joke of a beer. Coors attempt of something worhwhile. Not a huge fan of the style, and this is a particularly lackluster example. The choice of people who don’t know anything about beer.

Very attractive, it looked excellent. Light golden with very white head. Aroma is light hops, some light grains, citrus, tiny bit of yeast and some banana. Taste is crisp and smooth. Some wheat and a tiny bit of that yeast and citrus again. Finish is very clean. This was over too quick. Wait... coors makes this? That can’t be right.

Draft; so I see this one coming toward me with a slice of orange wedge in the top of the mug and I could not get the orange out of my head the entire taste. Orange-yellow color and hazy- reminded me of a glass of orange juice I had for breakfast. Small pure white head that deminished quickly. Orange aroma, orange taste, watery, lively carbonation. I think I just found my new breakfast beer!

Bottle dated Oct 09 153471T 05. Pours with slight head which fades fast like carbonated lemonade. Dark Mountain Dew/Mello Yello color, but with grassy shadows eminent. Slight hop smell mixed with stillgreensagebrush, tangerine, overripe but not repellant citrus. Rind. Peel. Nice bitter afterbite. First had this on tap at a Chicago style pizza joint in Lincoln, NE. If memory serves, bottles not quite as good as the tap (isn’t that always the case?) but still very good. A nice white. Is it really brewed by Coors?Yellow bullet? Were it a woman, I’d ask for a second date... then straight back to my place, or else.

Citrus aroma, good stuff. Mouthfeel almost like orange juice. Slightly effervescent. Cloudy body with a small white head and some lacing, Very drinkable, not a bad beer. Hard to believe this is brewed by Coors!

Had this on tap. Poured a cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Standard light witbier aroma, but light and watery on flavor and palate. Was able to pull out some citrus and ginger. Not a bad witbier, but nothing special.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2009 a bit light but has a nice taste that contains a little spice. i like this beer, love their pumpkin ale... one reason to look towards fall.

The taste is rather interesting, spicy is a way to describe it. The first one is alright, however after 1 or 2 that was enough of that.
