Coors Brewers is planning a UK launch for its Blue Moon beer, which has already proved a huge success in the US and Canada.

The unfiltered Belgian-style wheat ale is being trialled with two on-trade partners and the brewer is hoping it will prove popular enough to roll out across the country in October.

The beer is brewed with malted barley, wheat and oats and spiced with coriander and orange peel. It is served with a slice of orange rather than the traditional lemon, which is said to accentuate its flavour.

Coors also trialled Grolsch Premium Weizen last year, which it rolled out across the on and off-trade this May.
