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.

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 (4772) - 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 (4763) - 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.

This was a nice winter touch, but too many micro and crafts to worry about now.

cbfobes (2269) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2010
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear copper with an off white head, aroma is sweet with malt and a hint of sugar, the flavor is sweet but very boring, nothing special here.

spicy hoppy smell. Nice head that dissipates fairly quickly. dark brown appearance with hardly any carbonation. light body, much lighter than you’d expect for a beer this dark and a bit of a sticky stale aftertaste. Pretty boring overall, I’d choose it on $0.50-bottle night.

Chudwick (1965) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - DEC 12, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2011 bottle in a pint glass pours clear amber with offwhite head and noticeable lacing. Nose is caramel malts. Aroma is candy, wheat and caramel malts. Taste is sweet. Body is medium and texture is oily. Finish is drab. Always a nice change from the regular Blue Moon.

SPDickerman (913) - Texas, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Pours a dark, rich, clear coppery red with an off-white head. The aroma is strongly malty with some faint sweetness. Tastes sweet, malty and little like caramel. On the heavier side of medium-bodied with a lightly sticky, but creamy texture and soft mouth carbonation, Blue Moon Winter Abbey Ale finishes sweet and smooth. Not really a Belgian ale though.

mansquito (3255) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Holiday Party: (free): Pours copper colour with off-white head. Aroma is mostly of caramel malts, with hint of sugar (I didn’t notice them to be roasted). Taste is ok. Simple, a little sweet. No hops or yeast, but at least there is a good amount of flavour. As much ideological opposition as beer geeks/nerds/snobs have to macros, one has to admit that this as just as good as a lot of lower tier micros. Drinkable (I had about 6 of these, as the other available beers were Stella and Harpoon WInter), and as one can see sessionable.

(12oz bottle). Pours mahogany with off-white head. Decent carbonation. Aroma of candided sugar, banana. Sweet with a little sour at the end. Lighter bodied with slick texture. Finish is pretty smooth. Definitely sense the belgian components in this one.
