I am ashamed to say I liked this beer. It tastes like baklava, with an slight orange aroma. light yellow in color, clove, cinnamon and honey flavors - quite yummy.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2007
Light honey body with a half inch dense head. Nose-light BMC with some light citrus. Taste-medium top high CO2, very light honey on the backend, cereal, cinnamon, dust, light pear, light lotion. The taste really isnt that bad, but the aftertaste is very dusty and artificial. Not offensive, even mildly refreshing, but not realty good.

Jungle Jims Second Spring Beer Fest

5/12/2007: Blue Moon Honey Moon Summer Ale has clean and clear yellow appearance. The aroma and flavor exude real honey comb and something delicately spicy (cinammon?). This beer really tastes like they threw the entire honeycomb in there! This beer is well-balanced overall and not too sweet. It has a light body and is ultra smooth. Honey Moon Summer Ale is the definitely the best of the Blue Moon seasonal offerings.

Sampled from a 12 oz bottle.

pours a little darker than a regular blue moon with a fluffy good sized head. Has some citrus notes in the aroma for sure. Tastes of honey, orange with not much hop. Not a remarkable beer but better than a lot of summer beers out there.

shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2007
A fair summer wheat beer, with a bit of orange peel in the nose. A little complication would enhance this brew, with nothing more than light honey notes and the promised orange zest coming through in the flavor. But it is a smooth, refreshing drink, that much is true.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 2, 2007
On tap at the Crescent Moon. This is an attractive-looking beer that pours a hazy deep gold color. It has a plentiful large white head of reasonable staying power and nice lacing. Smells sweet, but theres not honey aroma to be discerned. The adjunct-riddled flavor mounts up a somehat thicker body than most Coors products, but the sweetness does ot come from any honey flavoring to the taste. This is an OK beer, but there cannot be very much honey in it. I dont detect very much orange either.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - JUN 2, 2007
Light nose of spice, some grain & light wheat. The brew pours a sparkling golden straw. The mostly lasting creamy white head is stiff & sticky and leaves good lace clinging to the sides of the glass. The brew is well balanced if grainy and somewhat sweet. This sweetness combines with moderate acidity & a brief tangy finish. The light body is watery/ almost creamy and lively. The finish is somewhat cloying and feels slightly metallic.

luv2brew (196) - Chesterfield, Virginia, USA - JUN 1, 2007
A clove like nose with a stale corn aroma to go along with that. This pours a beautiful color with a large white head. But that is where the good qualities stop. This taste like someone added HI C or tang to a hefe. It also has a fake like sweetness at the end that really kind of brings thing to an end.

Bottle from Krogers. Poured a hazy golden with a moderate frothy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Moderate sweet citrus aroma. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. Medium sweet citrus flavor with a light sweet finish of short duration. Soft summer brew worth trying once.

Pours nice as the hue is a beautiful golden brown in color, comparable to honey. The off-white head foams up quite a bit, but doesnt go away fast. The aroma is sweet but not overbearing. I detected hints of fresh-cut grass and sweetness; possibly lemony with a touch of honey. I could taste the honey and orange, but there were also hints of caramel and grain as well. There was no bitterness from hops to be found, so it went down fairly smooth without the final kick from the hops. Carbonation level was medium and didnt have an artificial feel to it. More citrus-like sweetness in the finish, leaning more toward the orange and a bit dry. This is a good beer for the lighter fare of summer, going well with salads and a burger, hot dogs, or drumsticks. It would be great for a picnic. I could never see it standing up beside some of the heavier fare like stews and thick spicy soups I serve in the winter, but the lazy hazy days of summer are what it is designed for. Its in league with what I expect from a beer from the Coors Brewing Company. Their beers normally seem on the light side to begin with, so something thats a light-bodied beer is expected from them.
