Short 12oz twist-off bottle. Finally, another from the Blue Moon Series! Brewed with Cascade Hops, Orange Peel and Hibiscus. What is a Coors without orange peel?.. not a Blue Moon, I say. Orange copper color. White foamy head. Aroma of juicy oranges, and citrus hops. It is a surprisingly nice combination. Flavor is a pale malt, some caramel, light citrus, some orange zest. Not to balanced, still better than the rest of the series. Overall, I don’t think I’d offer this to any guest at my house. Rating #1925

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2009 A light aroma and taste of floral hop, but that’s about it. There just isn’t too much going on in this brew. Leave it on the shelf.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured into a pint glass.
Light rust colored with a fizzy thin head.
Head falls quick, no lacing.
Smells slightly of a spicy yeast, green apple, and wet dog.
Taste isnt terrible at first, a little spicy, a little sour, but then is tastes like a BMC pils. Body is thin and tastes like corn mash.
Overall, not as bad as I imagined, but pretty terrible.
On the plus side, I could drink this all day long.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Blue Moon aroma, but with a hop presence. Dark copper color with fluffy head. Hops are more plentiful than expected, though I must say I didn’t expect much. The rest of the flavor resembles a sweet Blue Moon. Palate is lively, but abrupt. Mundane.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Filtered amber-orange color. Overly sweet one dimensional aroma, not pleasant. Medium bodied with a decidely sweet yeasty fruitiness. A Belgian Pale Ale? No way, lacks any crispness. More like a Singel if anything. Shows some spice as it warms. Surprisingly not bad for a Blue Moon product, but embarrassingly bad for something claiming to be Belgian.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tallahassee, Fl. ABC Liquors - 12 oz bottle - part of a Brewmaster’s variety 12 pack. Pours a medium copper with a thin white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma has some brief spicy accents with a dash of nuttiness. Flavor has some nutty accents, a bit of Christmas type spices and a brief wisp of citrus. Mouthfeel is even and smooth. Decent, just not overflowing with flavor.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2012 Bottle - from sampler pack. Copper color - clear. Pretty good - fairly hoppy. Not really a Belgian style though - more an American pale ale with flavors added.
