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

pours medium amber color. Medium white head. A sweet smell with a faint nose of fruit but not enough to notice for a normal consume. The taste is not unique, wet palate. However, does not leave a skunky aftertaste. Overall is a better than average beer but would not go out of my way to get another.

better than their other beers, but those ones ain’t so good. this is an ok beer. does nothing to stand out from other Abbeys...maybe even below average...but above average for Blue Moon. 4/09 - Beer Advocate says Dubbel. Realy, this falls somewhere between the 2 styles. Too boring for a belgian, and English Ales don’t have Belgian Candi sugar...still pretty stndard stuff."

pours a deep ruby color with a big tan foamy head that lingers for awhile with excellent retention and lacing. The aroma is of the sweet sugar and malt with some bread tones and a little floral wafting through. The taste has a mild hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is weak, being a little too watery.

Hmm this brew started off good, but overall is disappointing. Appearance was excellent with a large head and ruby brown color, although the aroma was faint and adjunct-ish. Flavor was ok, brown sugar is noticeable. A bit watery. Aftertaste however is definitely metallic and sticky and reminds you this is a macro-brew. Looks like an Abby ale, but falls far short compared to authentic samples of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Old sample bottle found at the warehouse. Expired January 2008. Caramel and toffee with baking spices and vinegar. This beer is obviously past its prime at almost 6 years old. I’m getting the feeling that it wasn’t much worse to start with though.

I haven’t had many of the Blue Moon sub-brands, but this one must be one of the worst. I suppose that makes sense because its retired. To call this Belgian is an insult to its better cousins. Aside from the appearance, there isn’t much that can be compared.

Tap at bw3. Pours red brown and smallish medium thick head. Mild malt nose and smooth body; Carmel undertones and just a bit of bitterness. Overall seems like a generic medium beer but drinkable. ---Rated via my mouth
