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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. Clear brown pour with a lot of white head. Nose is nutmeg, bread malt and caramel with slight citrus and other spices not unlike pumpkin pie. tast is the same, too sweet, sweetness overpowers everything else.

pretty solid beer. Blue Moon makes a good beer - nothing special but it’s an easy to drink beer that has wide availablity.
