Average in taste, a bit too much lemon in the aftertaste, just stick with regular Blue Moon.

On tap at OKC Fox & Hound. Pours a near clear amber gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a light flora note with a good amount of sweet wheat and a hint of light fruits. Flavor is lighter with sweet wheat and a touch of light spice and flora. Block (2894) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 14, 2013
This beer seemed to have a weird combination of flavors. I didn’t go in one direction or another. Probably would have been better if it had a distinct orange or lemon flavor rather than a mixture of both. The malts didn’t help the situation. otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Clear and light with colors of orange and gold under a thin white collar which fades into a broken film. A slow stream of bubbles breaks the silence.

Sweet rolls, honey rolls. Hint of powdered sugar and angel food cake sweetness. Cold fresh cut apricots and green grapes. Ghostly essence of lemon bread.
Sweet rolls and honey rolls front and center. Green grapes and apricots in the back of the swallow. Bright – tingles atop my tongue. Soft mouthfeel. The sweetness threatens to overwhelm – borderline cloying. Angel food cake in the middle adds to the sweetness. Fresh bananas in the breath.
An OK starter beer but with so many better intro craft beers available on the market, I’d offer the Spring Blonde Wheat Ale to a friend only if it was the only available option. Way too sweet, cloyingly sweet. Tone down the sweetness and enhance the fresh quality of apricots and green grapes would be my 2 cents worth.
Pours a clear golden-amber color with a small off-white head that soon reduces to a lasting ring. The aroma is weak: wheat, hops and some faint malt in the background. More flavor than aroma. In addition to the components detected by nose, there is a light citrus/lemon quality and a grassy note. Light body; nicely dry finish; good, medium carbonation.
O: highly drinkable alternative to a light beer. Certainly works as an accompaniment to yard work and summer weather. Not much flavor or aroma here, but no striking flaws in this refreshing brew.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a lightly cloudy gold with a half finger of white head. Aroma of skunky wheat and citrus. Light sour. Citrus notes with a strong wheat backbone. Light bodied with a thin yet somewhat sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a lingering citrus finish. Overall, pretty good. I’m not usually a fan of spring beers but this one is drinkable. jerohen (2334) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2012
On draft in a pub somewhere in Glasgow, UK. Slightly hazy yellow/orange colored, white head. Very fruity, mainly orange, wheat. Reasonably well-bodied. Not very complex, but refreshing. afrueh (49) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - SEP 15, 2012

Lemon and orange scents along with grass and mild grapefruit. Very clear deep yellow color. Doesn’t really seem like a wheat. Thin bodied. The flavors come across as artificial. Very sweet. Finish leaves you with a hint of biscuit or bready flavors. Okay brew could use some tweaking. MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Bottle. I needed these Blue moons for the ratings. EH. thin , watery , barely a wheat beer.
