12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear amber with an average off-white head. Mild aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is malt, brown sugar, fruit and spices. Kind of surprised. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On Tap at Summits. Pours a pleasant dark brown with a lasting head. Aroma of roasted malts. A nice wintertime beer but it lacks body and character.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A great beer for the winter time. Certainly reminds me of a bock type beer and you can certainly taste the roasted malt on your palate and the finish. A great bouquet and great tasting beer.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smells similar to smidthwicks. Rotten apples, iron and malts are foremost. Pours deep hazel with a pretty but small head. Tastes of malts, balsamic vinegar, and finishes with a little cocoa. Not repeatable.

Could use more body and a more rounded flavor. As it is, it’s lightly malty with spices and goes down smooth.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle pours a dark amber with a decent head. Had aromas of spice, caramel and sweet malts. Not too much flavor of spice comes through, and a rather sweet winter beer.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Tastes a whole hell of a lot more like bad cola than an Abbey Ale. Spoiled malt flavor, and that hint of sugar is more like a kick to the balls. Not that Blue Moon is a pantheon of quality beermaking, but this horrid mess should embarrass even them. (12/08)

I typically give this one a shot every winter to see if it’s going to change. I like blue moon but this one just docent have the taste

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
No where near as full bodied or thick as Belgian Ales, aroma of spices similar to a witbier. Rather thin and uninteresting, should be much more malty.
