a extremely well made beer for a macro owned brewery. The wheat and fruity aroma is mild, and it adds to the overall flavor, which is mostly fruit, citrus. The feel of the beer in the mouth is silk wheat, very smooth but just has the wheat bread feel.

Bottle. Nice white head on a hazy yellow body. Nice fruity aroma. Taste is a mix of fuirt and spice with a hint of citrus. Rather complex and interesting. Also, noted sediment on the bottom of the bottle indicating that it was not filtered......nice

On tap. Poured a hazy yellow with a small head. It was brought to me with an orange peel in the glass (why do they do that!). Smells and tastes of, guess what, oranges with some wheat. Did not impress me. Should I try it again without the orange peel - not sure it is worth it...

I havent had this in a while, but I remember it as a mediocre white. Nothing great, but nothing too aweful.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2004 My favorite beer of them all, i tried this in Boston after a red sox game and did it hit the spot! up there, they slip an orange slice into the neck so the beer passes through during each pull from the bottle, tastes good that way but Blue Moon should just be drank ice cold from a glass, Bottoms Up!

Blue Moon, you saw me standing alone, so I picked up the bottle, I needed one of my own. Pretty flavorful, but it doesnt feel or look like a Witbier to me. It belongs in another category, but its an overall good beer from the Coors people. My friends JB and CG swear by it, but Id pick up a Hoeer any time.

A decent, but not great beer. Very bitter taste. Its very much the traditional Belgian White Ale, so if you like the flavor of them, this might not be a terrible choice.

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 12, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2005 Blue Moon pours a hazy, yellow color with big bubbles, a thin head, and a decently sweet aroma. It is spicy, a bit acidic (less so than similar brews), smooth, a bit peppery, and a bit lemony, with a slightly dry finish.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [draft - Dave & Busters - Homestead, PA] Poured an orange color with a thin white head. Looked more like a hefeweizen than a witbier in my opinion. Faint aroma of wheat and citrus. Slightly watered down taste, mainly wheat and yeast with a slightly sweet citrus finish. Not too bad. Went well with the orange that came with it.
