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. Couldn’t 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 I’ve 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 doesn’t really hold a candle to any other abbey ale on the planet, this one wasn’t 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.

I got this in a mixed sampler pack of winter brews form world market. It smelled like farts and it just tasted like bowels. When I went online and found it was listed as a Dubbel I was shocked, this is not a Belgian styled dubbel. This beer is awful, do not buy it.

12 oz. bottle- Pours clear dark amber, little lacework, nice fluffy white head. Aroma is dirty wet socks, maybe some spice thrown in to try to make it smell not like a hoses ass. The taste is nice brown sugar, creamy , mellow, actually tasty. The carbonation is medium, body is medium full, finish is sweet and malty. Overall besides the aroma it was not half bad.

12 oz bottle into Trappist glass. Pours an orangeish copper with a thin head that recedes quickly to a beige ring of foam. Aroma is light toffee, caramel and banana; faintly spicy. Taste is sweet and a bit tart with no bitterness. Tastes somewhat berry-like with a hint of cheese. Carbonation and body are medium, has a creamy mouthfeel. This seems so much better than "Full Moon," the name the brewery gave their winter seasonal up until now. It’s no masterpiece, and compared to authentic Belgian Abbey ales, it’s pretty bland, but it definitely surpasses what they’ve put out every other winter until now.

DeadMeat (4) - USA - MAR 5, 2011 does not count
12oz Bottle & Tumbler. Aroma is light with very faint fruit & spice undertones. Pours a medium amber color with a beige head which quickly dissipates into minimal lacing. Taste is vaguely suggestive of (slightly) sweet toffee with some roasted bitterness. Watery finish with no aftertaste. This is an inoffensive, but unimpressive brew.

ESBob (358) - Indiana, USA - MAR 5, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep copper brown with off white head, decent lacing for this macrobrew. Aroma is light roasted malt and toffee. Taste is caramel, dark roast malt, and toffee notes. That said, this ale lack complexity and any kind of mouthy feel. Would make a good intro beer for folks just getting into the craft beer movement.

DuffMan (7032) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 1, 2011
Bottle. Dark old-penny copper, mahogany highlights. Very low aroma of husky, lightly toasty caramel. Flavour profile is much the same-- very simple, and entirely malt driven. This could just as easily be a "light" doppelbock or scottish ale. There is no yeast character here, there is no spiciness, there are no fruity esters. How is this in any way a "Belgian ale"? FAIL.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Draft at Brewery Pours a good copper with a creamy white head, which lasts fairly well. Decent lacing. The aroma is very light but you can get hints of caramel. The carbonation is good. Flavor is sweet and malty. Has a light body. The finish is okay and aftertaste is nothing to really speak of. Better than coors but on pace with Blue Moon drinkable but not my choice.

Pours a ruby/amber color with a nice fluffy tan head. Aroma is a bit lacking but what you can get is yeasty with faint Christmas spices. Flavor is malty sweet, candied sugar, Christmas spices, maybe raisins. Overall an ok beer for a massed produced beer. Looks like it has bigger flavor than it actually does.
