Bottle: The aroma consists of mild caramel, fruit, vegetal notes, and stale hops. It pours a transparent amber with a minimal off-white head that quickly fades to a very fine ring. The flavor starts with some strange lightly sour fruit and vegetal notes. The finish has basil and stale hops. Itís light bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, itís light enough thatís itís not overly disgusting, but whatís there is not good...and not "Farmhouse" at all.

bottled - decent flavor - refreshing. Nice amber/red color. Aroma is blah, though. Overall, not that bad for Blue Moon.

This reddish amber ale has a hay like aroma. It poured with a thin amount of head and has a lightly sour aftertaste. It is fruity something like cherry.

Poured from a bottle. A lackluster beer with not much going on beside some maltiness and a little spice.

Bottle from Food Pantry Waikiki 191214. Say what you like about Blue Moon but they do make some good beers. While this beer doesnít look all that impressive it tastes good with a slight tartness to it.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 12 oz bottle. Sweet, mildly spicy, notes of tart fruit. Slightly artificial, but enough beer flavor to ignore it. A bit too watery. Not bad.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, another screw-top which I pried off. Nose is sweet with lots of coriander, lemon, lighter roses and caramel, spice. A candyish, thick fruitiness floats behind. Pours clear amber with avg carb and a fizzy, soapy beige head. Taste is zippy and refreshing, faint tartness and lightly oily texture, medium body seems fuller at times with acceptable malt depth, sweet and a little phenolic with subtle warmth from uppity booze. Very minimal spice, no hops at all, light diacetyl, and that peel/oiliness is the real calling card. I need this to be drier or bitterer to balance the assertive sweetness, but the flavors that are here arenít bad, even if they arenít rustic, "farmhouse", or "Flanders Red." Oh, and if you insist on selling the fable of Belgian beer for the nourishment and productivity of day laborers, keep the damn abv below 5%, OK?

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a reddish brown color with a tiny white head. Aroma is weird. Maybe some cherry along with some bread? Possible some spices? The taste is weird too. Kind of sweet, some cough syrup taste, a little straw. Itís gross. This is not a good beer. Avoid.
