Bottle. Brutal. Clear orange pour with a small white head. Stale cardboard hops, no real yeast component, the spice doesn’t work, I don’t get the orange peel, and I’m picking up some of the broth you find in vegetable soup. Fail.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained ivory head with some lacing, over a clear, dark amber (SRM 15) body......nose is heavy malt, biscuit, toast, with light raisin, plum tones.....taste is heavy cereal malt, light malt sweetness, minimal spice, hops represented by very slight bitterness on the finish....mouth feel medium, minimal astringency, carbonation makes for a soft finish. This lacks any yeast spice in both aroma and flavor. While a technically well made beer, it could easily just be called an Amber without aiming at Belgian anything or implying a Pale Ale. The Cascade, Hibiscus and orange were used with a light hand in this bottle. It could use a more assertive yeast and a larger helping of hops. BJCP 7/3/14/4/6

I stand corrected. At Mike and Osra’s party, they had a beer avail. I have not had before. Of the 8 or more diff. 12 pks they had avail. they had Blue Moon Var pk. (I did not try the new fruit one) Pours brownish head, nice dark amber body. Aromas of some bread, caramel and chocolate. Taste is sweet and slightly bitter. Some mild flavors of hops are presented.

Aroma of bad fruit...slight hops. Weak. First taste is bitter hops with sweet malt. Chocolate in the finish and the bitterness ends well.

Nothing special to this brew. Pours a medium amber color with no head. Taste is weak and aroma is pretty much not existant.

avoided this when i saw it but saw a single and you’re right, that’s what I said. but soon as I got my cheque, I was gone!!!!
pours a deep orange .. mild foam .. . old spices, some sugar free maple syrup, and a touch of orange peel. maybe just the slightest bit of yeast .. . not very good, even for a blue mooner .. . .
You welcome to anything in my house...
but don’t let me catch you in my refrigerator...
or with your finger in my sugar bowl.
