This is actually pretty good. It has the nice sweet undertone of Abbey;d with a lower alc. percentage rendering itit less heavy. It had a hint of regular Bluie Moon in it andl felt it was an overall good drink.

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.

Dark amber in color with a nice off white head. This had a unique, almost indescribeable taste to it. It started off with a slightly roasty taste but finished very crisp with a great flavor I cant describe. Im not a huge fan of blue moon so I wasnt expecting much out of this one but I was surprised at how good it was. This was a very good beer and went well on a day where the temperature was minus 9 degrees

Light brown, medium-small head. Malty aroma. Great tast with a hint of Belgian sugars. A great, drinkable beer. This beer is one of the best seasonal winter brews, that is dominated by malt flavor.
