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.

JMerritt (1841) - 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

twindadplus2 (600) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 19, 2010
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.

puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2010
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.

Two 12 oz bottles as a gift from a friend. Aroma is faintly spicy and belgian yeasty. Flavor is light caramel, candy sugar, a little wheaty. Medium body with sharp finish. This beer is not great, but its a little bit interesting and fairly drinkable. Its miles ahead of some of the other Blue Moon offerings I have tried lately, specifically the Pale Moon, Honey Moon Summer Ale, and the Full Moon Winter Ale.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle. Poured amber with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma of toasted malts. The flavor had toasted malts, brown sugar, and caramel. Light to medium body, sweet, and a hint of spice in the end.

aracauna (3138) - Georgia, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Just like the rest of Coors Blue Moon beers, this is not a bad beer. Also like the rest of the line, it’s not a great beer. This may be going for the Belgian Abbey, but it’s really only a slightly fruitier than normal brown ale. Actually, there is a good bit of spice in the nose from the fermentation of the yeast, so it’s a little more than that.

mar (4959) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 18, 2010
bottle thanks to fratto. poured a deep amber with a cream head. nose is fruity yeast, bready malts, not too impressive. decent on the palate, flavor is yeast, light spices, and not much else.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2010
Sampled from a 12 oz brown 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.
