COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We crafted our single-style abbey ale with select roasted malts, a hint of Belgian sugar, and a touch of wheat for a rich, caramel flavor and a wonderfully smooth toffee finish. It’s perfect for those chilly winter days.

Pours I don't know because I drank from a bottle. Aroma is funky fruit. Flavor is sweet and spicy not too bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent golden orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast with a sweet backbone and notes of caramel. Tastes like it smells with what seems to be a bit of vegetal flavor. Average (at best) on the palate. Eh.

Nothing here move on. Terrible example of the style and an insult to beer (almost) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle. Pours a deep copper color, almost reddish. Aroma of malt, banana and spices. Rather bland flavor of malt and spices. Medium light body with a sweet finish. I’ve had much better in the way of Abbey-style ales.

I don’t know why I get my hopes up with these beers. Maybe, it’s because I want one of these macro-brewers to grow a pair and brew something great and exciting. This was like Coors with a Belgian twist. It wasn’t offensive mind you, just bland. The aroma was faint and grainy and had a hint of adjuncts. Caramel brown color with a small fizzy head. Watery palate with high carbonation. Not much weight. It had this underlying Coors malt flavor with some caramel sweetness at the finish. Tolerable.

wlajwl (5688) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Aroma is very light yeast, mild bananas and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is malts, cinnamon, light bubblegum and a mix of mild heat and tangy in the finish.

Tulip glass. Nose of malts, spices, maybe even some gingerbread. Dark amber, bit of head and lacing. Taste of malts with a slightly foul aftertaste. Carbonated mouth feel.

nike (966) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2014
draft, I drank this beer before I saw that it is considered an Abbey Ale. Better than most Blue Moon brews out there, but on the thin, watery, sweet side. Not a complex or balanced brew. But, it does have some potential.

chinchill (4208) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2014
On tap. Has a very weak aroma but, fortunately a less weak flavor. Still, the flavor is meek, even for Blue Moon, with a slightly sweet balance. Feel: Near medium body and medium+ carbonation. O: decent but too mild. Very light flavored compared to the Abita Amber sampled after it.

Had this on a chilly, snowy day so it was the perfect conditions according to the bottle. Too bad it just tastes like hops. I wanted more caramel and toffee (like it smelled) but it wasn’t much more than hoppy water.
