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.

VALIS (229) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 28, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2013 Mostly soap on the nose, faint spices. Burnt amber color is promising, but like a lot of mass produced beers, the taste aims for inoffensiveness rather than complexity. Vaguely spicy finish. Why make it so smooth and watery? The Coors crowd isnít going to be buying this, so who do you think is picking a beer called "Winter Abbey Ale" off the shelves? Craft beer fans. Needs to be much bolder.

No aroma. Thin, whispy head, little to no flavor. Another. Overrated beer. The color may be the saving grace.

Bottle. Sweet caramel aroma, above average carbonation. Sweet caramel mouthfeel, sweet finish. Delightful!

This was good but one dimensional. The description really says it all, strong caramel aroma and toffee finish. I detected a bit of chocolate malt but definitely not a bad winter ale from blue moon.

Actually a beautiful beer...pours reddish copper - nice fluffy tan head. First taste was very roasted-like...but the roastiness faded into more of a blackberry taste finishing with red wine vinegar. Not a lot of body...but still mildly satisfying.

This beer is not that good. But it isnít that bad either! Donít bother drinking it though. Unless you want to drink an okay "winter" beer made by a company that also makes really shitty beer!

GirlyBeer (190) - Old Orchard Beach, Maine, USA - DEC 28, 2010
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. Theyíre not lying, you can taste the sugar... OR you could just make a better beer.

Has a reddish amber colour. The aroma is mostly sweet and caramel malty. Itís pretty disappointing, even though I only bought a single bottle.

This tastes kind of like saltine crackers. Itís fine, but Iím not buyiní the winter or the abbey.

This is an ok beer. I was hoping for something better and would have been happier with a standard Blue Moon. Seems like they just took a Blue Moon and made it more bitter.
