This is a clone similar to Blue Moon Wheat Belgian Style Wheat Ale.  The beer is orange-amber in color with a cloudy appearance because it is unfiltered. Blue Moon has a more pronounced orange flavor than many other beers of the style, and also has a slightly sweet flavor. The grain bill for Blue Moon includes malted barley, white wheat, and oats.

Some weiss and hefeweizen beers are commonly served with a slice of lemon in North America.[citation needed] Blue Moon is traditionally served with a slice of orange, which its brew masters claim accentuates the flavor of the brew. Keith Villa admitted the orange slice garnish was mostly for attention-getting when Blue Moon is served in a bar.

Samual Adams Summer Ale
Great beer to start the summer.

Crisp and tangy with refreshing lemon peel and a hint of pepper from rare Grains of Paradise.  Golden, hazy, & thirst quenching, this American wheat ale balances bright citrus, Noble hops & spice for a lively brew that’s perfect on any summer day.
