224. Blue Moon Summer Wheat

This one looks and tastes like a Coors with some honey added. Nothing special here with only mild aroma and very bland taste. With so many great craft beer options out there don’t bother with Blue Moon.

Cons:
 Tasteless
Alcohol Content: 5.2% ABV

151. Blue Moon Spring Blonde Wheat Ale

This is the sixth different variety of Blue Moon I have reviewed and I still cannot figure out why some people like it so much. This is brewed by Coors Brewing Company and while I have not had a Coors in some time I cannot imagine it tastes much different than the Blue Moon options. This beer is weak from start to finish. The only thing that is good about it is the solid 2+ finger head, taste is completely forgettable. It makes me wonder what those that enjoy Blue Moon would say about truly good craft beer.
Pros: Head
Cons: Everything else
Alcohol Content: 5.4% ABV

Brewers Description: Light-bodied ale crafted with lemon and orange peel and white wheat. A refreshing taste with a crisp, citrus finish, the perfect accompaniment to that first glorious patio day of the season. Pairs well with seasonal salads and fruit sorbets. A splash of sunshine in a glass!

88. Blue Moon Pale Moon

This one is a slight improvement to the other options from Blue Moon but not a lot. Appearance again is great, aroma is fruity and pleasant. Taste is just OK with plenty of fruitiness (is that a word) but still lacking something. This is a better than other Blue Moon reviews but there are still so many better brews out there. If you have a choice of Blue Moon or a true craft brewer please choose the latter.
Pros: Appearance, aroma
Cons: Taste

Brewers Description: Pale Moon is a drinkable pale ale that has a distinctive hop aroma without the lingering aftertaste. This Belgian-Style Pale Ale is brewed with European malts, Cascade hops, and a touch of hibiscus and orange peel. These ingredients create a rich copper colored ale with a flavor complexity that one would expect from the Blue Moon Brewing Company.

87. Blue Moon Winter Abbey Ale

I have heard good things about Blue Moon and so far I cannot understand why people like it. Maybe if you are a Coors or Miller Lite drinker Blue Moon give the appearance of drinking a quality slightly darker beer but you can avoid any complex flavors that a true craft beer would have. The look of this beer made me think I was getting something worthwhile but that was about it. Taste has a mild vanilla flavor that disappears almost immediately and the beer just feels week and watered down. As with the other varieties of Blue Moon I have reviewed I recommend you avoid this one.
Pros: Color
Cons: Lack of taste
Alcohol Content: 5.6% ABV

IBU (Bitterness): ??

Brewers Description: An abbey ale crafted with roasted malts, hint of Belgian sugar and touch of wheat. Rich caramel and toffee notes – pair with hearty stews and chocolate desserts.

52. Blue Moon Belgian White

I had high hopes for this one after I poured it into a glass as I typically enjoy unfiltered beer. It looks great and the aroma is OK. I did not garnish with a slice of orange as it suggests on the Blue Moon website so I may have to try another. If that was the missing component in this review than I will certainly come back and revise my rating. This was the first Blue Moon offering that felt like it was a beer brewed by Coors (they own Blue Moon). Will give it another try as I have one more in my fridge but as of now this is my least favorite Blue Moon variety and not something I will make any effort to try again.
Pros: Unfiltered look
Cons: Lack of flavor
Alcohol Content: 5.4% ABV

IBU (Bitterness): ??
Rating: ★★☆☆☆
Brewers Website: Blue Moon
Brewers Description: Unfiltered for more depth of flavor and a unique, cloudy appearance. Ingredients; white wheat, oats, coriander, orange peel. Full of flavor with a smooth finish. Light, spicy citrus flavors go great with chicken, seafood and pork. Best when garnished with a slice of orange to bring out the natural spices and subtle fruit flavor.

48. Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale

This may be the final Pumpkin/Fall beer of the year. Overall not a bad a beer but not a lot of flavor here. Nice color, slight pumpkin aroma but very little pumpkin or spice flavor. When I buy a pumpkin beer I expect to have lots of flavor and this was a bit disappointing in that regard. Not a bad beer but if you are looking for a fall or pumpkin beer there are a number of better choices available.
Pros: Smooth, decent alcohol content
Cons: Very little flavor – pumpkin or otherwise
Alcohol Content: 5.7% ABV

Brewers Description: Harvest Pumpkin Ale – Available September – November – Amber Colored Ale – Brewed with a bounty of fall flavors like vine-ripened pumpkin, allspice, cloves and nutmeg – Together with a touch of wheat, Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale has a smooth, lightly spiced finish. Pairs well with beef dishes and seasonal soups.

8. Blue Moon Summer Honey Wheat

This beer surprised me. I had always heard good things about Blue Moon and I bought a 6-pack for my wife who rarely drinks beer. After getting it home it quickly became apparent most of the 6-pack would be mine. It is a light refreshing beer, easy to drink with no after taste. Very nice summer beer and certainly something I will buy again.
