You only come across a post like this once in a Blue Moon.

Bierview,
IMO your better off, replicating a Hoegaarden, after all its a classic belgian wit, the one that coors fascimiles half azzed and has found a nitch in the market for your typical bud drinkers.. I look at it like the other "white meat" for BMC drinkers... Hoegaarden a much better beer by far, that Blue Moon.. I'd go that route

Blue Moon recipe "one can of coors light, two squirts of your wife's worst perfume".

Bierview,
Unfortunetly you have fallen into another one of those pesky tiger pit topics here at HBD. I as well as other have asked for a blue moon clone. You can expect a bunch of responses that have nothing to do with your origional question. In addition to the comments barading the beer simply because it is produced by Coors. My closest attempt was using 75% 2 row, 25% wheat malt, and then using lemon zest in the boil coupled with a Wit yeast.
Cheers,
Peter 'the kid' Roman

There is a local bar that has both Hoegaarten and Blue Moon on tap. One night I ordered both to taste back to back. Aside from their appearance, they were both very similar. I was quite surprised to find this.

Thank you Peter . . . I was thinking it, but glad you said it.

When I'm in the mood for a light-bodied beer on a hot day, a Blue Moon with a slice of blood orange is really good. I hope Peter's post curtails the prejudiced bad-mouthing that usually occurs. BTW, Peter, how did your clone attempt turn out?

It's quite possible that Bierview is trying to replicate a beer his chick likes. I had a similar reason to duplicate this beer. I don't have an all-grain recipe for this but here is an extract that got pretty close.

5+ Gallon batch.
6.0 lbs. Wheat DME
0.5 lbs. Flaked Oats
.75 lbs. Flaked Wheat
*Teabag the above at 150 degrees in 2 gallons of water and rinse grainbag.
1.0 oz. Saaz hops 60 minutes of a 60 minute boil.
0.8 oz. Coriander (crushed). Last 5 minutes of boil.
0.6 oz. Bitter Orange Peel. Last 5 minutes of boil.
Cool to 70 degrees or less.
Add water till the OG is 1.045 (mine was 5.5 gal total)
Wyeast Belgian Wit Yeast #3944 at 65-68 degrees
FG will be near 1.009

I am not the budmilloors basher like some, but that beer just tastes like perfume to me.
