Pours I don't know because I drank from a bottle. Aroma is funky fruit. Flavor is sweet and spicy not too bad.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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)

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
