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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fresh bottle marked APR1315, a twist-off. Nose dusty caramel and a little cracker, grainy, seems pretty dry, has some Sam Adam’s like house flavor. Touch of fusel and candyish esters from the yeast. Pours deep, dark brown-red, like a Dubbel, but thinner, with a noisy and fizzy beige head. Taste is sweet and fruity, not sugary, but the alcohol is uncontrolled and enhances the sweet-raw flavor. Overripe fruit, somewhat grainy with strong alcohol warmth, lightly airy yeast character, and phenols and esters that are turned up. Sticky, lightly oily medium body, drinks pleasantly when you go quickly, sort of like a cordial, otherwise nah, brah.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Rite Aid: Aroma is faint and almost non- existent but some sweet malt are there. The flavor is bland with the primary flavor being a sweet base of syrupy malts and a minor note of cheap artificial Belgian yeast. Appearance was a solid mahogany brown with tiny amount of foam. Taste watered down for being a Belgian beer style but the alcohol warmth the beer gives off does seem fitting.

Actually a very, very good beer despite the ratings. True to the style in aroma and flavor. My score is partially biased due to the fact that I didnt expect it to taste as good as it does. Hands down Best beer of the blue moon brand.

Sweet almost make noise with a but of skunk. Mild carbonation. Fairly sweet in the mouth, maple and toffee. Finishes a but sweet and musty. Drinkable, unremarkable. Would be a decent post ski drink I guess.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a bottle. Thanks Joe! Pours almost clear copper brown with no head. Tastes like very sweet malt, a little buttery, musky, nutty grains. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet malt, nutty grains.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours dark amber with absolutely no head retention. Aroma is bready malts, raisins, light toast, faint fig, and some faint Belgian yeast esters. Flavor is so, so bland with some notes of bready and caramel malts, dark fruits, and very faint hops. Medium body and seemingly no carbonation.
