2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Freebie from my friend Sarah! Thanx Babe!
This was poured into a chalice.
The appearance was a slim foamy to bubbly white head that quickly died to nothing, lacing - uh...what lacing, it wasn’t exactly there.
The smell was definitely better as it had a light touch of hibiscus and slight sweet to spicy orange peel.
The taste was semi-sweet rolling along the hibiscus and slightly sweet/spicy orange peel.
On the palate, this one sat about/at a fairly decent light to medium on the body. Sessionable - definitely, if I wanted to I’d pound these away until the cows came home.
Overall, Belgian pale ale? Uh...okay, well, uh...slightly. To me its good, but would I seek it out? Hmmm...probably not, nice to try. Thanks Coors for the tick.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The body has a deep golden color with very good clarity. On top the head builds up a light fluffy layer of soapy foam before quickly fading down to a small ring on the top. It is just off white in color and its lacing is very slick and slides down the glass. The aroma has a light sweetness of malt with a hint of citrus and a very slight spicy accent. The main body has an almost honey like sweetness with a slight hint of citrus, mild spices and a fruity melon like thing going on. There are some light hop notes as well that work nicely with the subtle spices. It finishes on the sweet side with a smooth, wet and mellow texture. Its carbonation is soft and its medium gives it an easy drinkability.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From BA review on 2-21-12 -
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance –Pours a deeper amber-golden color with a nice billowy off white head. The head fades relatively fast leaving a little bit of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The nose is quite light. Light caramel and toffee notes are the most prevalent. These are mixed with a little bit of citrus and some spiciness.
Taste – Carmel malt with a little bit of roastiness is the first detected. A little bit of sweeter orange citrus comes and mixes with the sweeter malt, although the citrus is quite light. A little bit of citrus bitterness moves in toward the end and takes the taste to its finish.
Mouthfeel – The body is light to moderate with a little bit of sharpness. The higher carbonation matches the sharpness well, but neither really complement the taste, and somewhat contend with one another.
Overall – This is a rather average brew. Of the Blue Moon varieties this one is likely on the lower end of the scale. It’s OK, but I would take other Blue Moon varieties over this one if given the chance.
