Rating #150. As I felt with the regular Blue Moon, for being a Coors owned company, they could do much much worse than this. This is not a spectacular or every very good pumpkin beer. However, for what it is, I have no problem with it. And if I couldnt get a better pumpkin beer I would buy a 6 of this no problem

Amber/copper body, medium light tan head. Sweet malt aroma with pumpkin spice. Flavor is quite light with biscuit and sweet malt accentuated by nutmeg and a touch of pumpkin. Reminds me of Cave Creek Chili Beer- "look, pa, this beer tastes like pumpkin!" Light, tame, and gimmicky.

Light pumpkiney aroma over a really nice amber color. Weak weak weak weak flavor that really leaves me frowning. Even more so since i just had a Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale which is a million times better than this watered down flacidness.

Much more beery than other pumpkins that Iíve had. As if it was a base of Rolling Rock, with a dash of wheat beer, and some pumpkin juice sidled in. That said, it was okay. No real spiciness to it... at all. But okay. Lots of bubbles and darker color. At least the labelís pretty on top of things--nice Halloween/Autumn look with a creepy illuminating blue moon rising over rural pumpkin fields. Ah the mysteriousness...

Overall this is a 5 STAR AAA GRADE BEER, very unique, ONE of a kind. first before you question my opinion iíd like to list some facts about the Blue Moon styled beer and the way it is meant to drink.. people that have given this beer or any other Blue Moon bad reviews more than likely do not put the beers in the freezer before serving, afterall this beer was given its name (and company name for that matter) from the Blue Moon ice cream that originated in Wisconsin. hence the Blue Moon crystals falling in front of the moon and on the cap the moon with the triangle and "ice crystal" in the center, representing the crisp cold smoothness of frozen ice cream.. Blue Moon has a description on the bottle that quotes "This amber colored, naturally flavored ale is brewed only in the autumn & combines the flavor of vine ripened pumpkin & spices with traditional crystal malt." now, why do i quote this? because of the word Crystal malt and the refference to Blue Moon ice cream from the name of the Beer.. if you have not tried Blue Moon ice cream, you will more than likely not notice the taste of the Blue Moon ice cream in Blue Moon Belgian White. as far as Blue Moon Pumpkin Ale is concerned this beer is their BEST, tastes a lot like pumpkin pie and you can taste the large variety of spices with a little hint of Blue Moon ice cream.. Beautiful dark orange color almost a brown, thick stomach beer but VERY SMOOTH to the mouth, by far the smoothest beer current to date. the taste is very crisp and accurate to the description they give on the bottle. the BUZZ/HIGH is very strong, i donít know exactly how they make it but it feels much stronger than 5.77!! this beer is meant to be served at a extremly cold temperature, if the bottles are already cold when you have them put them in the freezer for 10-15 minutes, if they are warm put them in for atleast 35 minutes and you will have a beer that makes you want to dance until the end of time!!

PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Bottle: Very unimpressed with this beer. Pumpkin ales are always something I look forward too and this one was highly recommended. It poured a bright orange with little head produced. Had very little in the way of an aroma. Tastes was somewhat spicy with very little in the way of pumpkin flavor coming out. Smooth.

hershiser2 (1208) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 10, 2004
Orange amber with a nice orangish-white head, and a sign that says "drink me," on the glass. Smells nothing like pumpkin- just has an "ordianry" beer smell. Taste is sweet and malty, but very little pumpkin. Decent spicing, but finishes more peppery, rather than with sweet spices. Unimpressed.

Wow I never knew that could drink pumkin pie, but I guess you can. Iím not sure how they did it but it really isnít bad, just a little to sweet. Definitely a better strange-brew.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - MAY 27, 2004
Unfortunately a bit past its due date of Feb. 13, 2004, but good nonetheless. Pours a deep orangish amber in color with a minimal head. Aroma is predominantly pumpkin and harvest spices: nutmeg and maybe a touch of cloves. Taste is rich, lightly sweet with a faint hop bitterness in the finish. Smooth on the palate. A good seasonal brew.

Lubiere (9770) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2004
Amber coloured beer with a thick rsilient white head. Cardboard aroma (oxidation) with pumpkin spice coming nicely aftrwards, a bit cloying. Spices come out clearly in the attack in mouth with lingering, with a lot of sweetness and little bitterness. A bit too sweet for my taste but not bad. Medium bodied with a nicer balnce of spices and sweet.
