2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours copper brown very little head dissipates right away Smells overly malty no real hop aroma Taste is overly carbonated lots of malt some grain Not very yeasty Drinkable yet too carbonated Fair effort but Id rather have a different brand Belgian if I had the choice
I apologize for the lack of punctuation but rate beer is being a pain in the ass lately so I really have no choice Apparently commas and periods are too much for the website to process at this point

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2009 Nose is soap-heavy laundry detergent anise and candied/perfumed floral notes. Body is light, effervescent, refreshing, moderately smooth. Flavor is lightly sweet cane sugar and floral notes up front but quickly turns to sour, offensive fusel/stewed celery on the back. As expected. Belgian ale rating #100.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very predictable hoppy flavor with consistent results. This is a good offering to get people interested in craft beers. Fairly spicy for a mass-produced offering. Overall pretty pleasant.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is inviting with pine hops, yeast, bread, citrus and maybe a touch of spice. The elements are good but somehow they fail to completely impress. The appearance is deep gold with an orange hue. The head is average. The taste is not as complex as the aroma. It’s got some soapy and astringent bitter elements but mostly it’s got a macro twang to the malt and a touch of citrus. Like the aroma the taste doesn’t work 100%. The palate is thin. Overall it’s better than most macro’s but suffers some of the same problems.

Maple syrup in color and light on carbonation. Very smooth but not all tha hoppy. A nice drinkable simple beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
An amber color with a soapy white head. The aroma contains some citrus and caramel. The flavor is somewhat sweet with some citrus, caramel, and a biscuit flavor going on. Biggest complaint here is the thin palate but overall not bad for Blue Moon.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber color with a thin quickly disappearing whitish head. Metallic pale malt some citrus and a bit of floral (must be the hibiscus?) and that is about it. Taste is lightly caramel, amber malt, more breadiness and steely aftertaste. Nice cascade hop finish that seems to build after each sip.
