The beer with more name changes than a professional athlete, today Blue Moon® Summer Honey Wheat is crafted with Colorado clover honey and orange peel for a refreshing taste that makes the most of sun-soaked days.
While studying brewing in Belgium, Blue Moon head brewmaster and founder,
Keith, met plenty of beer-minded friends who introduced him to local styles including Belgian Pale Ales. On weekends, they’d road-trip north of Brussels to Londerzeel—a small town famous for its Belgian Pale Ales. The malty taste and pleasant hop aroma (without the overpowering bitterness) made a lasting impression on Keith. So much so that when he returned to the States, he decided to create his own interpretation of the classic style by adding hibiscus and orange peel for a subtle citrus finish, making it a great beer to pair with a wide variety of foods and occasions.
Blue MoonTM Belgian White is a refreshing, medium-bodied, unfiltered Belgian-style wheat ale spiced with fresh coriander and orange peel for a uniquely complex taste and an uncommonly smooth finish.
The name "Belgian White" is a reference to the cloudy white, opaque appearance of the beer. "Belgian White" also refers to the style of beer, which has been brewed in Belgium for about 300 years. This type of ale is brewed with malt, wheat and oats. It is unfiltered, which allows protein and yeast to remain suspended in the beer and creates the cloudy appearance. This also adds to the smoothness and full body of the beer.
A slice of orange is the perfect complement to Blue Moon Belgian White, bringing out the natural spices and subtle fruit flavor.
