2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a nice amber color with a thin off-white head. Aroma has fruity yeast notes with some caramel. Taste is sweet and fruity with berries and other fruits. Interesting finish with more sweetness. Not a whole lot going on, but it isn’t bad. Would drink again.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle. Massive tan head due to an over-aggressive pour by me. Light brown body. Sweet caramel nose with a touch of soapy yeast. Toffee, caramel, mostly what you’d expect from a generic version of an abbey. Metallic afterbite. Medium body and carbonation. I didn’t have high expectations of this to begin with, so no surprise here. Like others have mentioned; not great, but not too bad either. Drinkable.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Meh. Tastes like a sweeter Blue Moon White Belgian to me. Nothing special here. Not bad, but not great either. Could be more yeasty or have more malt. Kind of artificially sweet in a way.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottled - I don’t know if I’d call this a Belgian ale but with that being said, it’s not half bad. Nice amber color and pretty good flavor - better than a regular Blue Moon.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark copper color with a thin beige head. Good balance of sweet, bitter, and alcohol. Nice caramel/toffee aroma alongside roasted malt.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 12 oz bottle from a sampler pack. Flavor is water mixed with fairly pleasant malt, some odd collection of spices, and caramelized wheat. More of a milk chocolate finish than toffee. However, overwhelmingly very wet and bland. Not offensive, but not great.
