Default Blue Moon like beers

I am looking for a white ale that I remember someone ranting and raving about. They said it was their favorite brew ever. Anyone?

You're probably thinking of either Hoegaarden or Celis. Both excellent wit beers. I was surprised....Blue Moon is actually a decent wit, but is too sweet for my tastes.

Default Need a better wit than Blue Moon

I have a buddy that LOVES blue moon, but makes a face if I order something good like Stone or Victory Hop Devil. I really think he just like the orange slice in the beer.... Anyway, I want to get him a 6 pack of a wheat beer that is pretty good. I am not a fan of wheat beers, so I don't know what's good in that category. I'm looking for a "if he likes Blue Moon, he'll love..." Any suggestions?

Might be hard to get, but Great White is a really good beer for someone who likes a light, wit beer with a hint of orange and spice. It's made my Lost Coast Brewing, which is a fairly small company.

My favorite is Wittekerke in cans. You can also get it in bottles, but I like the cans....
