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.

On tap, poured with a decent head, very white. Taste was like the Blue Moon Belgian, minus what makes the Belgian great. Fairly bland ale, although the flavor was pleasant. Vanilla and a tinge of spice, so perhaps bland in a good sessionable way.

russwbeck (117) - Tyrone, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Amber pour with a small off white head with minimal retention and hardly any lacing. Smells of light malts, with hints of Belgian Yeast. Malts up front on the taste, with a caramel finish. Not much of an aftertaste. Too light. Expected some more depth to this one.

LBarouf (113) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2012
12oz bottle, Pours in a brown opaque liquid, with aroma of resins and herbs, malts and cereals and a hint of coffee. Froths in a a nice brown head misleading you to think it will be a pearl, a gem. It’s lively but the head does disappear quickly. weirdly enough to be found in summer in little known AR town, It’s not very representative of a Abbey Ale. I got tricked! Still surprising for a Coors product. Perfect to whom would like to sound sophisticated in front of a crowd who does not know beer. A nice try from Coors I guess, but I will not buy again unless water is not drinkable.

Tac (112) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Aroma of toffee, yeast, toasted malt, taste of coffee, bitter nuts. A small sense of alcohol. Medium carbonation, red brownish body, nice but not long lasting foam.

drostj (103) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 7, 2012
bottle. Decent winter ale. Clear reddish amber with a light malty aroma with a hint of yeast. Smooth feel in the mouth. Medium malt flavor with a bit of caramel and just a bit earthy. Smooth finish.

penguinfinity (103) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle. Sweet smell and taste but rather nondescript. Pours clean, amber color with light head. Not too bad, tasty but could be better.

Not bad had one in 2010 was not impressed gave it another shot enjoyed it more out of a bottle I must say. Decent winter brew but thete are others better out there. Nice lacing in the glass. minimal head nice color to it. Taste of vanilla toffee finish. Better than Sam Adams Winter lager thats for sure. With the talk of bacon porter etc for this year perhaps they will come up with something more interesting. Again good enough.

Pours an amber color with a white head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, and honey. Taste is mostly sweet caramel. Medium carbonation and easy drinkability. Body is on the thin side.
