Looks decent, orange hue of brown. Small bubbled head, minimal lacing. Malty sugary nose, somewhat pleasing, palate is sugary with a small amount of dark fruit. Could be so much better, and usually is for this style, but not bad.

crazyvin (1943) - New York, USA - NOV 3, 2010
Poured a reddish-amber hue with an off-white head. Head had good retention and some lace. Aroma had a mix of spices, mainly nutmeg and sugar. It almost had a Dr. pepper quality to it. Flavor was a little on the sweet side, some yeast notes but no bread notes to it, the spices were a subtle, and maybe too subtle. Finish was smooth.

Pours clear dark amber with a thin beige head. Aroma of biscuit and caramel with some fruit. Taste is decent, mostly biscuity malt and toffee with some apricot. I’m wondering if this is really the same as Full Moon. Decent enough but just average, which is better than other Blue Moon beers IMO. After doing some research, I’m 95% sure this is a re-label of Full Moon.

promateur (1) - USA - NOV 1, 2010 does not count
enjoyable, but not that memorable. not much smell, other than a slight hint of caramel. medium caramel body and smooth carbonation sums it up.

Courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Pours amber with tan head. The aroma is sweet with caramel, apple and chocolate chip cookie. Pretty nice. The taste is smooth with apples, caramel and muted cherry to midway. It seems to stay that way leanining toward smooth blended dark fruitiness into the finish.

sebletitje (6700) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 30, 2010
Bouteille partagée avec Jcwattsrugger. Couleur ambre, mousse beige. Note malt caramel, avec intonations de levure belge, profile reste plus malt que anticipe pour un style abbaye, peut être l’aspect hiver? Note de caramel, levure, sucre brun et qcq fruits avec une fine couche d’amertume. Pas mauvaise, mais un peu bordélique comme bière surtout dans le style.

Hangover (1058) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Copper-red pour with a small but creamy tan head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Thin body, medium carbonation. Light caramel flavor and you can taste the sugar adjuncts but the flavor is a bit weak. It’s no Orval but its a decent malty beer for the masses.

BREWMUSKCLES (2234) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 28, 2010
it has the spice and watered down taste of a Leffe, yet although thinner in flavor it is creamier in body with quite an interesting carbonation to the mid palate. I sensed some soapy hops once or twice in the toffee caramel sugar of this brew as well as a sense of carrot that i strangely did not find at all offensive. It would not surprise me today that i would re-rate this one higher later.

The aroma is sweet and toasty with caramel, toffee, honey and adjunct malts. The appearance is amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth from carbonation but thin. Overall a so so beer but an easy drinking beer.
