Trash. Utter trash. I hate the stuff. I'd rather have whatever BMC lager is on tap.

I don't know if anyone else remembers this, but long ago, when I was a kid, there were these little things that you'd put in your lunch for snacks or desserts called Gummy Sharks. Essentially just mildly sweet gummy candies shaped like sharks, and they were all pretty small and translucent. All except the Great Whites. They were much bigger than the rest of them, and you'd get 1 or 2 per snack pack. They were opaque white and flavored with something. Anyway, this is exactly what Blue Moon tastes like. Gummy sharks.

FAIL!

I don't like any beers with "flavors" in it, so I don't like Blue Moon at all. I don't like any fruit beers or beers with coriander or other stuff either, though, so it's not just Blue Moon. I like my beer to be just beer. Nothing else added to it!

J'Accuse! I cannot even remember what something I ate last week actually tastes like. You are just trying to make cool retro references to cover your seething hatred of Blue Moon.

Well I can do that too. My beer tastes like Sizzlean!

Almost everytime I talk beer at school (in one of my classes or especially in all the group projects I'm in) people bring up blue moon.

I think it's a good thing, it's not the greatest beer but it's different and a step in the right direction. I always tell these people to try a Hoegaarden in the hopes they'll branch out.

Also, I like blue moon better than the other "_______ moon" beers. The lime one didn't taste like anything

I agree. Don't like anything in my coffee either.

It's sold as 'Rickards White' up here and I have to say I don't mind it on a hot summers day. The restaurant closest to my office has a patio and it's nice to have lunch out there on a workday and enjoy a pint of that.

The first time they brought it to me it had a big piece of orange in it. It was better after that when I knew to ask for it without the fruit.
