One of the best blue moons I have had..you must love ginger though. No harsh bite of some gingers

Mittenator (1561) - Michigan, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Bottle. Clear caramel with a beige head. Smells only what I imagine SNL's autumn's Eve feminine deodorant product could be. Potpourri and allspice garbage. Only plus is the flavor is not as potent as the aroma.

A good beer, wish it had a little more ginger kick too it. Pours a light brown/mahogany color. I was expected more from Blue Moon.

Block (1650) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JAN 17, 2015
I was really hoping for more of a gingerbread flavor. Not too much, could have used much more spice. A bit malty, some caramel. That’s about it.

Mace and cinnamon. Gingerbread taste. Spicy finish with abrupt bitterness. Not bad but too simple.

mjg74 (2726) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Bottle from Walmart. Dark amber/brown in color. Strong spiced nose of nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavor is loaded with good holiday spices. Good spiced holiday brew.

Stuedmaster (295) - Vista, California, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Pours reddish amber, slight off white head, no lacing. Aroma of molasses, ginger, cinnamon, caramel, dark bread, earth. Has a good balance of sweet and bitter, a decent spiced amber ale, goes down easy. Does taste a bit like spiced gingerbread while still mainly tasting like an amber ale. Didn’t have any off flavors, overall pretty smooth and tasty.

ronaldtheriot (1469) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Blue Moon Gingerbread Spiced Ale has a thin, off-white head, a mostly clear, rust-brown appearance, and no lacing left behind. The aroma is of all-spice, brown bread, and some subdued spices. Taste is of sweetness, spices, brown bread, and low bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Blue Moon Gingerbread Spiced Ale finishes semi-dry and easy drinking. RJT

freekyp (1574) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Pours a nice clear coppery penny with a small ring of off white head. Malty molassses cinnamon sugary aroma and flavor. Moderately sweet with enough hops in the finish to keep it very drinkable. A rise in carbonation at the tail end delivery’s earthy spices to the tongue, settling into a long, slightly metallic finish. Well done.

Aggiebob (181) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Clear copper ale with a spiced aroma. The taste is heavy spiced with a slight sweetness from the molases. The spices overwhelm the finish.
