Yep, I like it, and my wife is very fond of it. Thanks to it being made, or at least distributed through the Coors network, you can find it at more places (at least around here) than you would expect.

A few others that you should like if you like Blue Moon are:

Hoegaarden - the grandaddy of the witbeer style
Celis White - American made, by the guy who resurrected the style for Hoegaarden.

And BTW - The orange will likely get you looked at rather strangely in Belgium. :D

The beer actually has orange peel in the boil (Most use curaco peel), some coriander, and some people swear that hoegaaarden uses a bit of chamomille, but the brewery won't say. ;)

Erik,
The orange wedge on the beer is not a Belgian thing at all, probably a local novelty. Belgium has over 400 types of beers, some flavored with fruit, some with up to 12% alcohol.
I've seen some advertisement in GQ from Stella Artois, Hoegaarden and Leffe.
Looks like they are being sold in USA now, I personally like Jupiler.
If you are into Belgian food, try your Flaamse fritte (French fries) next time with mayo. Here is a link with a list of Belgian beers: Liste des bières belges
