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

Reviewed from notes. Poured into a tulip. Pours a dark amber color with some reddish hues. Off-white head with a bit of lacing. The nose brings some caramel as well as hints of dark fruits and cherries, but mostly just caramel. The taste is lacking in complexity and while itís not a bad-tasting brew, it really pales in comparison to better examples of the style. Simply a bit of caramel with very light amounts of dark fruits and a hint of yeast. Feel is a bit full. Drinks fairly well, but just doesnít hit the right marks.

From a 12oz bottle from Pickís Liquors. Very very slight aroma of caramel. Appearance is hazel with very slight head that dissipates quickly. Bland taste. Slightly sweet and salty. Deceptively light bodied for how dark it is, thin texture with average carbonation. Very abrupt finish.

Bottle. Dear me oh dear me. Pours rich red brown with lasting foamy head. Faint sweet malty aroma. A sugary sweetness is the only flavour, light bodied and only a little fizz for a finish. But then itís made by Coors.

OK, blue moon, I saw you standing alone? Well not any more, blue moon makes alot varied brews like this one; a beldgy. Does have that old style yeast feel to it. Quite strong initial impressions yet well controlled. Not sure if its the beldgy sugar er the yeast that gives it that personality. Couldnít drink abunch of theser but it goes down fairly easy for a five plusser. Decent lacing. Stands right up there with some of those other beldgy wanna bee american imitations. Aroma is clean and rather sterile, but something is there. Finish is a little creamy and medium bitter. One of the stronger moons Iíve had; they must be trying to approach the big beer category, heheh. To put this in the same style category as orval is hilarious.

Bottle. Setting aside its claim on the bottle, and that it doesnít really hold a candle to any other abbey ale on the planet, this one wasnít actually that bad. It is more like a brown ale than anything else. Mild spice character. Entirely drinkable, and probably something you could convince absolute non-beer drinkers to partake in. Poured a medium dark amber color, medium fluffy head. Aroma was sweet toffee notes, caramel.
