COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This full bodied abbey ale is brewed with roasted malts and a hint of Dark Belgian sugar for a perfectly balanced taste.

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.

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.

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.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2011
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.

cryptobard (281) - DENMARK - AUG 30, 2011
Could use more body and a more rounded flavor. As it is, itís lightly malty with spices and goes down smooth.

burg326 (4337) - Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2011
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.

oobawa (626) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 28, 2011
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)

Niko100 (2172) - Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2011
Rich dark amber color; Medium body; Aroma of malt, & some spice; Flavor of light roasted malt, caramel, some fruit (notably cherries), and spice; Overall, a bit light - but decent.

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

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.
