Blue Moon Belgian White

I had this beer at PJ's Pub. I also had a Pilsner Urquell, also from the tap, but I neither took a picture nor wrote any comments on it. I sort of recall the Urquell being hoppy, but I can't be certain.

I wrote "Blue Moon draft with orange slice. Delicious."

I might have wrote delicious on 20110312, but I'm having doubts about my opinion on Blue Moon. See Yuengling 20110622.


I find it strange I only have one entry for Blue Moon Belgian White. I've certainly had it on several occasions. It's possible all those occasions were prior to the start of my blog. How mysterious.



I wrote: "Blue Moon. Got that orange taste. Meh. I'm not too fond of it. It's pretty warm though, so perhaps too much of the citrus flavor came through." 7:19PM ET


I had a Blue Moon today (straight from the bottle) and it did a great job of washing down all the oil from the french fries I got from Kooper's Chowhound Burger Wagon. The citrus taste in this situation was perfect.



It's been a long time since I've had a Blue Moon. In particular, I'd forgotten the orange and wheat flavor. In fact, the citrus taste was alarming, especially considering I normally drink porters, stouts, and Belgian beers which have a strong flavor profile, but lack any citrus notes. 2:24PM PT

Today I had a bottle of Blue Moon poured into a glass with an orange slice garnish. It was refreshing and delicious. For whatever reason, it tasted better than the last time I had it (20160221).


While I would have liked to try either Singha or Chang, the restaurant was out of both and ultimately the Blue Moon seemed to compliment the pork pad see ew well.

I haven't had this beer in a long time. It had a light flavor which was not explicitly citrus. 7:39 PM PT

Website Information:

Blue Moon® Belgian White* was our first year-round release back in 1995.

It started with our brewmaster, Keith Villa, wanting to craft a beer inspired by the flavorful Belgian Wits he enjoyed while studying brewing in Belgium. He brewed his interpretation using Valencia orange peel versus the traditional tart Curaçao orange peel, for a subtle sweetness, and added a touch of coriander to provide balance. Then he added oats and wheat to create a smooth, creamy finish that’s inviting to the palate. As a final touch, he garnished the beer with an orange slice to heighten the citrus aroma and taste. Its natural unfiltered appearance adds to the depth of flavors in Belgian White*.

Available in 12-oz. bottles, 6-pack, 12-pack, 12-oz. can, 16-oz. can, Draft
