Brewer Reviewer’s Review: I always order a Blue Moon Belgian White without an orange. While I get some strange looks for this request, I always say that I’m a bit of a purist and I want the beer to taste the way the brewer intended. Despite my perceived strange ordering habits, I can still sense the orange essence used during the brewing process. This is my typical go to brew, especially on a hot summer day. I find that blue moon is a classic example of a Belgian-style Wheat Ale in flavor, appearance, mouthfeel and aroma. This one gets a thumbs up and is highly recommended by brewer reviewer.

- Brewer’s Notes: 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. 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.
