THE RIGHT BLEND OF INGREDIENTS AND IMAGINATION
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, and added a touch of coriander to provide balance. 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*.

Pour our Belgian White* into our signature Blue Moon® glass to highlight the depth of the beer. This glass opens wide at the top to make room for the aromatic citrus notes. Cap with a creamy, white head and garnish with an orange slice.
Will appear cloudy because it’s unfiltered for more depth of flavor.
You’ll notice a zesty orange fruitiness with a light spicy wheat aroma.
The flavor starts crisp and tangy and ends with a coriander and orange spiciness. The Valencia orange peel gives a subtle sweetness to the beer.
The oats give the beer a nice creamy body, so it’s not too thin.
Our Belgian White* has a slow finish of coriander and orange spiciness.
The Valencia orange peel and coriander in Blue Moon Belgian White pairs well with seafood such as grilled shrimp, Asian dishes like pad thai, and marinated chicken dishes.
