COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This copper-colored ale is crafted with roasted malts, Belgian sugar, and a touch of wheat for a rich caramel flavor and a smooth toffee finish.

Poured from multiple 12oz bottles - Quite disappointing all-around, but it does look nice. I actually tried this because I was surprised to find I liked the original Blue Moon. This is terribly sweet with nothing much else going on. Canít recommend.

BVery (6077) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Bottle. Mostly clear amber pour with a large initial head that fades to a slightly cream colored ring. Aroma is caramel malt and sugar. Medium palate. Taste is quite sweet - notes of dark fruit/plum, some candied sugar, and caramel malt. Really not too bad, especially coming from Coors. Pleasantly surprised.

BadAprilia1000 (253) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 1, 2011
This beer pours a watery red color with a thick head that goes away nearly instantly. The aroma is somewhat unflattering, smelling of sugar and toffee up front with a caramelly wheat finishing scent. Taste is a bit better, notes of caramel and toffee up front with a stronger wheat finish than I expected with a bit of cane sugar as well. Overall not bad, I feel what is really missing to make this a true abbey ale style is the heaviness in the mouthfeel. Not bad at all

unclemike (2222) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - OCT 30, 2011
bottle this beer poured a caramel-amber color with a very large tan head. The aroma was sweet, tangy and a bit tart. The flavor was sweetish, tangy and had a hint of caramel but not a whole lot else. The finish was long and tangy. Nothing special.

Clear amber, small off white head, candy nose with faint malt. light carbonation throughout the drink, Slightly roasted palate with light malt. I like the Blue Moons realizing thay are what they are - nicely made and finished. They are not Belgians and we all know this. They are decent brews. Skol!

My sister and I killed a couple of 12 packs of this in a few days; we were both pleasantly surprised by this seasonal. Definitely buy when in season!

Honestly the differences between this one and the other Blue Moons are pretty minute. Once again, smooth drink with a flavor thatís almost a tease; there should be something more behind it but there isnít. Almost like itís incomplete.

Lighter and more watered down version of the delicacy of the blue moon empire. I guess there is a Belgian flavor in there, just kidding. But hey itís screw top
