3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a medium dark golden color with a light frothy head. Aromas of light spice (hibiscus), slight orange peel, light caramel. Flavors of light caramel, slight spiced hibiscus, and slight metal (from the settling/aging tank). The caramel malts come over the light spices even more in the flavor than the aroma. Medium sweet. A light belgian ale.

Eh. Honestly pretty flat. Small head and decent coloring. Needs more hops.

12oz bottle picked up at the state store
Pours clear dark golden with a medium sized off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel, spicy and citrus. Flavors of malts, floral (hibiscus?), wheat and citrus
It was OK, but I wouldnít order another.

Now this wasnít a bad beer. I donít expect much from them, but this was a tasty beer. Calling a Belgian style pale should be illegal however. Itís obvious they print the labels before the beer is made because this beer is a light brown and nowhere near pale. Nor is the taste anywhere near Belgian. Aroma was nice. Roasted caramel malt with subtle hints of orange and tree bark. Pour was a dark gold/light brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was big and malty but not sweet. Orange peel and caramel are the big flavors with not much else. Good flavor for such a low ABV. Decent carbonation. One of the better of the Blue Moon shitty beers.

Bottle. Taste is caramel, malt, smoke, grain and hay. Solid session beer, donít really understand the low rating.

Hey for blue moon its not too bad. Neutral nose, some malt and mild hopping. If tasted blindly you probably wouldnít say it is a belgian but it isnít offensive in any way and is drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a orangeish light brown with quickly fading head and not much lacing. Aroma is light with citrus, floral, and malt. Taste is sweet, bready, banana, then drying into a light tart bitterness.

I was surprised by how much I liked this one. Pleasantly dry, and the dryness seems to clear out any sweetness in the beer, leading to a clean, refreshing finish. Does not taste much at all like a belgian ale...slightly hoppy and seems even to hint at roast. I donít notice the hibiscus or orange peel...itís not overdone, nor is there an unpleasant sourness from the hibiscus.
This is the first beer other than Blue Moonís regular Belgian White that I actually preferred. I do not think it resembles the original much at all; it was more of its own thing.

Better than a bud, I guess. Next to no real character, texture, smell or interest to this beer.
