2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Couleur légèrement ambrée avec un col moyennement résistant. Nez de malt de sucre et de fruits. En bouche le fait qu’il y a de la goyave dans le brassage de cette bière donne un petit gout différent, mais n’est pas tout a fait délicieux. Un peu trop commercial mais un point pour l’effort!

If I had all the money back I’ve wasted on blue moon and like products, I could go buy something really, really nice for myself this holiday. I keep buying them, they keep being around average, and I keep wanting to move on to the next beer. So agave nectar, may you be the last blue moon I waste my 1.50 on. Clear golden yellow with a large white head. Aroma of agave, salt, lime and toasted malt. Taste is sweet and salty with lime, wheat, malt and spices.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Maierovicz’s place. Thanks beerandbeyond. Clear golden. Aroma of cardboard, a bit of fruitiness and some spiciness. Sweet flavor with cardboard, spiciness and a bit of fruitiness (a bit citric). Rather light-bodied.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Shimmering golden pour, good clarity with lots of tiny bubbles, and a fizzy white head. Nose is malty, sort of grassey, and a little sweet. At first sip, I’m taken back in awe of the sweetness. A little grassey and some hints of malt; it gets a tiny bit metallic before ending in a rush of sweetness. Must be the agave nectar... I’ve had agave before, but this is way sweeter than I recall. Where is the malt or wheat to balance this out? Too sweet.

Not quite was I was expecting. Smell and appearance are ok, but taste is a bit off, and tastes kind of doughey. Not a fan.

My last random beer of the night. Blue Moon’s Agave Nectar Ale. 5.6% bottle from Sugaya. On popping it open it smells like a Bud, not a good start! Poured into a weizen glass which revealed a very clear yellow gold beer though it looks like a Bud. The aroma gave me some cream soda notes, a bit of spice & yes possibly some agave. The full bodied mouthfeel is nice but the taste is super sugary, crushed grain & a touch of spice. I feel like I am drinking a soda, what a let down...

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle poured into a tumbler.
Clear deep golden color with minimal head.
Sweet aroma of honey, caramel and some malt, with faint nuttiness zero hops.
Sweetish taste, caramel malt, some vegetal notes of sweet potato, ripe fruit, faint alcohol and no bitterness.
Light bodied, not dry, easy to drink but more as a juice than a beer, and where’s the agave?
