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. I’d drink this again.

Bottle from Walmart. Deep amber in color. Nose is malty with a bit of sweetness. Malty flavors dominate. A touch of breadiness. A light hoppy spice in the finish.

I can see what they were trying to do with this, but it just doesn’t cut it for a Belgian. Seems more like a weak British winter warmer with little hop character and no yeast distinction. Pours ruby red/brown with a decent foamy head that quickly disappears. Aroma is faint, caramel malts and brown sugar. It is surprisingly easy to drink for how boring it is, and I wouldn’t call it bad. Mainly tastes like bland malts and brown sugar, quite sweet, nothing from the yeast. Lacking character and distinction, this one rates as mediocre, although it doesn’t have any significant faults.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear mahogany with a decent, if not persistent, light tan head. Aroma starts with roast malt and adds hints of caramel and wheat. Toasty malt forms the heart of the taste and supports a caramel tone plus hints of wheat and fruit. Texture is about average, but it goes down nicely. Mount one, and you should abbey pleased.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle, part of the World Market winter 9 bottle mix pack, courtesy of my in-laws. The pour is clear brown ruby with a smallish off white head. The aroma is sweet cough drop sweet along with grain malt. The taste is a weird cloy sweetness, very much the cough syrup sweetness of the nose. Not much beyond that character. The palate is medium to light bodied with soft carbonation and the sweet cloy finish. Overall, weird beer not that pleasant.
