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.

Bottle. Trappist Glass. Served chilled. Deep Copper Color. Weak light brown head. No lacing in the glass. Aroma of spice, caramel, alcohol, coffee. Medium body. Taste was toasty, caramel, herb, and spice. Bitter, but a touch of sweetness. Smooth. Clean finish. I enjoyed it, but its not what I am looking for in a Belgian Ale.

Hazy deep copper color with a thin tan head. Almost untraceable grain aroma. Roasty and toasty grains with a sugary taste and a metalic hop finish. Sweet sticky, medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, cloyingly sweet. Some sort of spice that stings the toungue. The fact that they added sugar and say so in the label is a bad sign to me. They’re not lying, you can taste the sugar... OR you could just make a better beer.

I can’t believe this blue moon. Dark copper. Sweet, malty aroma. Maybe a little buttery. Very true to the style for a blue moon beer.

doomfistinc (82) - New Mexico, USA - DEC 26, 2010
12oz poured from bottle. Smells grassy with an almost overpowering sourness. Looks fantastic, but palate falls short; watery with too much head during pour, no matter how slow. Body also represents the taste. Not much there at all to speak of. Tastes like a watery beer is basically the only way to describe it. A highly disappointing seasonal

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 24, 2010
christmas eve. pours a cola brown with a medium foamy off white head. dark fruit aroma. some dark cake like sweet malt in there. flavour is a little muted. Light roasted maltiness, plum and orange fruit sweetness. hints of christmas-ish spices. Though very light. Overall, a toned down abbey ale, but still a decent introduction for BMC drinkers who might reach for this during the holidays.

JMerritt (1941) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2010
Pours a dark orange with red tints. Head is very large, frothy, and off-white/light tan.  Very grain – centric nose. I picked up perhaps just a hint of candi sugar and maple syrup. Overall, the aroma is rather bland. Mildly sweet, mildly sour flavor. The sourness comes from some raw grain and wet wheat notes primarily. Finish is glassy, slightly metallic, and lightly to moderately sour with some cardboard notes. Not Belgian in the least, and not very "winter warmer" either. It is what I expected - disappointing, overpriced, and bland.

Bottle. Chocolate toffee malt aroma. Clear chestnut color with small head. Sweet toffee malt flavor with a mildly bitter hay hops finish. Not bad - would drink this again.

12 ounce bottle available at Total Wine for $1.79 Much better than the regular Blue Moon

Mahogany colored with a small fizzy beige head that faded quickly. Mild spice and yeast aroma. Flavor is a bit of yeast with an herbal spiciness and a faint hint of malt. Light bodied and minimal carbonation. This doesn’t really work as a winter abbey but it’s not a bad beer so I can at least finish it.

Bottled. Added a little bit of it to my potato leek soup and it was delicious, so obviously this beer is awesome.

Pours rather flat, no head. Deep umber brown pour. Mildly spicy but kind of clumsy yeast aroma. Moderate herbal (thyme, rosemary) notes. Good body, smooth, easy drinking. A good amount of personality, very wintery. Certainly one of the better macro products out there. The low carbonation feels quite appropriate when drinking it.
