A few weeks ago a friend of mine surprised me with a case of Blue Moon Belgian White. I'm not really a Blue Moon fan, but I'm not one to look a gift-horse in the mouth, either. Over the last few weeks I've slowly drank the whole case, and the truth is, it ain't a terrible beer. I've had far worse beer from "craft" breweries. Blue Moon Belgian White pours a cloudy, burnt orange color with very little head. The aroma is yeasty. Maybe a little funky. There’s a cooked cabbage thing going on. The flavor is better than the aroma. It’s like a diluted version of a pretty average wheat beer. The label mentions orange and coriander. I don’t pick up on that. Sometimes, when my only option in a restaurant is crappy beer, I just drink water. I've passed up Blue Moon as an option before. I might be more willing to go ahead and have one with dinner in the future.
