2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle pour deep red copper with thin tan head rapidly dissipating. Nose Sweet caramel, Belgian candy, slight apple, hint of mineral. Taste lots of caramel malt up front, then fleeting Belgian character. Mid to late palate moderate astringent bitterness. Sweeter grainy malt on the finish. Nothing special but nothing overtly disgusting either. Part of a Holiday gift pack.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, big thanks to the friend that let me have this -- I think Callipalegic? Date on bottle is Apr2015. Pours a clear red brown color. Thin khaki sort of bubbly head. Caramel malt, dark fruit, mustiness up front, toffee, touch of chocolate. Mild spiciness, touch of earth. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, light to moderate carbonation. Slick texture. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter, mild spiciness. Kind of plain, malty, and musty on itís own, but it really works well between bites of my sandwich.

Bland flavor with no discernible beer style to match. Stay away from it if there are other choices.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The Blue Moon Belgian style ales are the only beers that Miller/Coors makes that I enjoy, and Mountain Abbey is probably the best of the bunch. This seasonal ale pours a deep orange/brown color and the brief head fades quickly. There is a little bit of holiday spice on the aroma, some ginger, some orange peel. The flavor adds cinnamon and wheat malt. Iíd drink this again.
