3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours hazy brownish red with a thin off white head. Aroma is strong in cinnamon, nutmeg, maybe some apple juice, but the spices really dominate. The taste is mostly spice too, I was hoping for a beer that tasted like a caramel apple, not enough of those two ingredients and too much of the spices, especially cinnamon. That being said, it tastes like a holiday spiced ale, if they would have called this beer their Christmas ale, and put it in their winter pack, it would have fit much better.

"I’m comparing apples to apples here...this one is one of the better blue moon’s, just like the apple shock toop is one of the best of that line. I think the ST is a little better, though. This is pleasant enough...apple and spices as advertised, just very simple, very thin, and a tad overcarbonated."

Clear bright amber with fair off-white head. Aroma is spiced, light fruity. Flavor is a subdued version. Light watery body. Nice enough for a casual beer drinker.

Is it just because I had the cinnamon horchata first or does this smell the same. Love the apple aroma tho. More apple on the Aroma and sweet on the flavor that could’ve caramel but still. Idk. That Blue Moon finish isn’t my favorite

Part of their mixed pack on my trip to Maine. Pours a clear copper-amber colour with an off-white head and some light foamy lace. Aromas of spiced apples with nutmeg and cinnamon. Same spices in the taste, but milder. Not much caramel. Good limited release that is worth trying if you like spiced ales.

Clear copper with a tall, tight tan head.
Pumpkin, cinnamon aroma....holiday spice.
Sweet, brown sugar/caramel with a bit of tart apple......as it warms, a little pie crust.
Not bad at all.

Eh. Smelled really nice but not so great on the taste buds. Tasted artificial to me.
