Bottle pour dark golden with copper hues. Nose some sweet malt and lots of powdery floral smell, like old lady perfume. Taste sweet malt, some floral and malty finish.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The label says "Belgian Style Pale" and I guess thatís supposed to mean Belgian style pale ale. It doesnít remind me too much of the real Belgian Pale Ales Iíve had, nor some of the better efforts to copy the style from other countries. Still, itís an ok beer, just not too remarkable. Poured it slightly warm with a huge, foamy, frothy, thick, cream-colored head that soon settles and good lace. Color is a clear orange amber with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is bark, old wood, cardboard, with a hint of malt and spice. Flavorís like nose, more intense, malt really comes out, tang of course, bit of bitter and some sweet along with some medicinal. Body is big and full but at first has a powerful warming despite its strength, medicinal component leaves an unpleasant lingering bitterness. Finish is as stated, like flavor, and would be much better with popcorn or something to cancel the off flavors.

Interesting enough the description is spot on. Well rounded. Only area that falls behind is the aroma.

Really nice clear copper pour an off white head and decent lacing. Aroma is faint grain and caramel. Taste is grainy with some faint caramel and bit tart. Light body that finishes a little dry.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Poured into tumbler. Has a medium copper boarding more to the red spectrum. Thin white head which dissipated quickly. Taste was rather flat with to much carbonation with a little funk on the side. Blue Moon usually adds a little spice to their beer, but I had a hard time tasting them.
I bought the Expressionist Collection and was really wanting to enjoy this beer. needless to say, Iím a little disappointed in it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Nice-looking pour, reddish amber, shiny and inviting. The thin head gives up quickly though. Thereís a light little yeasty aroma, but this drinks pretty even-keeled overall. Thereís a hint of a little fall-like funk, but not enough to scare away the casual beer drinker. Clean. Average. (#5285, 10/13/2013)
