Bottle from Capone’s. Pours deep coppery brown with 1-finger tan head. Nose is earthy and brown sugary, with notes of toffee and hops. Tastes hoppy, floral, earthy, with some fruity tartness at mid-palate. Not much funk, but this one is not bad.

Tastes exactly like all other blue moon. Too much sugars and wack spices. Probably won’t get again.

Meh. Kind of peppery. A bit spicy and bland at the same time. Sort of bitterish with a plastic-y odor. Taste is a bit like a red- mildly, mildly peaty and not really at all like a saison.

Transfer from BA review on 4-24-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – Pours a deeper amber color with a one finger white head. The head fades fast leaving only a trace level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is rather light overall but has notes of a bready smell mixed with some hay like and grassy aromas as well as the more traditional Blue Moon aromas of citrus, coriander and a bit of yeast. Taste – The flavor starts out with a sweeter flavor being of orange, cherry, and apple greeting the tongue. These flavors initially present and sweet upfront, gain more sourness as the taste advances. As the beer sours more so too comes some light spice flavors as well as a bit of a grassy hop taste. In the end a higher proportion of the flavor shifts to the sour apple taste, leaving a tart fruited flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the average to slightly chewier side for the style with a carbonation level that is on the averages side. The average to slightly above average body is nice for accentuating the lighter sour and tart flavors of the brew, while the carbonation does nicely to keep them from becoming too overpowering on the tongue. Overall – A easy drinking farmhouse ale but a little lacking of some of the desired characteristics of funk that I am looking for in a brew such as this. It is tasty, but if looking for a big saison, then this is likely not for you.

had this exactly a year ago, but these slick fuckers are learning the game and doing the ole name change. ya got me, ya got me. and just for that. no more soup on sunday, a bit of garlic is always appreciated, pours a dark tan with subtle odd fruit, is refreshing, and if in a bind, blue moon can be given a glimmer of sunshine in a world of scoot and shoot libations. not unhappy i got a revist, ..unlike my uncle.

SHIG (3586) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle: Poured amber with white head. Aroma is malts and spices. Taste is a watery malt, light sourness, spice/pepper, and a dry finish.

beerbaaron (1244) - Arizona, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Clear light reddish brown amber. Fair off-white head. Only a hint of tart and sour. Not much spice really. Plenty of wheat. Not offensive. Its more interesting than the typical macro at least.

Kneaded-dough aroma, a mix of slightly sweet tastes and an apple ale-style tart finish. A good overall combination.

MrBeerFanatic (864) - Friona, Texas, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Pours a medium amber with medium orange hues. Aromas of orange peel, fruit punch, slight grass and light caramel. Flavors of slight fruit punch, slight coriander, and slight grass/hay. Light to medium sweet. Interesting aromas upfront of what resembles fruit punch.
