~Sweet aroma of a touch of cherry candy with raisin and clove spiciness. Sweetness is a bit cloying. ~Pours a clear amberish brown with quickly disappearing head ~Carmel and bread in flavor with very light spice. ~Medium body, medium CO2, sweet bready finish. ~I could drink these, but pretty bland and boring. Uneventful.

enjoyable, but not that memorable. not much smell, other than a slight hint of caramel. medium caramel body and smooth carbonation sums it up.

For an abbey ale, this sucks. If youíre going to make a winter ale, you can get away with more, but an abbey ale has a reputation to live up to. Coppera aroma - semi-sweet, boring aftertones. Forgetaboutit.

Draft at Brewery Pours a good copper with a creamy white head, which lasts fairly well. Decent lacing. The aroma is very light but you can get hints of caramel. The carbonation is good. Flavor is sweet and malty. Has a light body. The finish is okay and aftertaste is nothing to really speak of. Better than coors but on pace with Blue Moon drinkable but not my choice.

12 oz. bottle from a mix-pack that I purchased at the store. Fucking keyboard is all sticky from some beer that I spilled on it. Not much head to speak of. Light raisin and yeast in the aroma. Sweet smelling, and fairly pungent. Fairly carbonated, for a Belgian ale. Raisin, yeast, and a touch of sugar sums it all up. Thereís not much going on here, and the beer falls flat, flavor wise. All in all, itís Blue Moon, and I didnít expect much.

Draft at a local bar. I usually donít like Blue Moon products, but I wanted to try something new. Unlike most Blue Moon beers, the wheat isnít overwhelming in this beer and most of the flavor comes from the malts. I like the soft, fluffy feel of this beer, but there is too much of a stanky residual sugar taste that is most likely attributed to the macro production. Not bad, but nothing to look for.

Dar\k amber almost brown pour with off white foamy head and lace. Sour maltiness and brown sugar. A light sweet caramel malt start followed by a sour dry bitter finish. A bit thin and watery. Just not much to me drinkable maybe but just not me.

Medium brown coloured ale with slight fizz. Itís ok, but it has an unusual taste which spoils the experience a little.

A little better than the retired Full Moon. Halfway decent malts and mildly sugary is somewhat close to a Belgian Ale. Canít say it was great but not really that bad either.
