'Celebrate the end of winter with Blue Moon Spring Ale. The smooth, balanced ale is brewed with three varieties of specialty malts and an infusion of fresh Kieffer lime leaves and lime peel to bring out the freshness of spring'
I will be the first one to say I am not a fan of Blue Moon's flagship beer, so I was a bit skeptical when a friend grabbed this out of the cooler at the grocery store and told me to buy this stuff. Then it said it had lime leaves and lime peels and I almost put it back, but what the hell. Sometimes you have to try things you would never try if not pushed by someone else. It was on sale too, which I admit helped the decision.
Thankfully the lime in Rising Moon isn't the overwhelming flavoring I was expecting. The bottle makes it seem like this is going to be chock full of citrus but it is only hinted at, which I appreciated. The ale itself is definitely nice to look at- very amber in color with a nice off white head that lasts. This stuff tasted of wheat, which I liked so I drank a few of them. After about three of these beers the novelty of the flavoring really wears thin and the odd flavoring starts seeping more into the aftertaste which becomes a bit too much. Definitely a novelty beer, but something I could tolerate and enjoy in small doses. Recommended.
