Nate (3553) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2010
From bottle. Mild sweet caramel aroma, straining to be a dubbel. Light diacetyl. No hop aroma. Dark brown amber clear with thin head. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet with light malt, a bit of caramel, and buttery character. Dry bitter hops at the finish but mild. Sweet nutty after. Not very impressive.

Fratto (2524) - Arlington, Texas, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle from pikapp327. Brown pour with a small off-white head. Aroma is weak, grainy, a little dark fruity, and uneventful. Taste is mostly the same. No aftertaste. Watery.

Onslow (1099) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Dark amber clear brew with a short lived off white head. Aroma of light grains, teaberry. Sweet flavor, light grains, not much in the finish. Thin palate.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - JAN 21, 2011
Bottle. Poured a murky amber color with a smaller white head, the head did retain throughout the entire beer. Aroma was biscuit, caramel, and some fruit. Flavor was malts, some tart in the finish. Not a whole lot to this beer. Very weak and watery, thin body.

OK, blue moon, I saw you standing alone? Well not any more, blue moon makes alot varied brews like this one; a beldgy. Does have that old style yeast feel to it. Quite strong initial impressions yet well controlled. Not sure if its the beldgy sugar er the yeast that gives it that personality. Couldn’t drink abunch of theser but it goes down fairly easy for a five plusser. Decent lacing. Stands right up there with some of those other beldgy wanna bee american imitations. Aroma is clean and rather sterile, but something is there. Finish is a little creamy and medium bitter. One of the stronger moons I’ve had; they must be trying to approach the big beer category, heheh. To put this in the same style category as orval is hilarious.

From a 12oz bottle from Pick’s Liquors. Very very slight aroma of caramel. Appearance is hazel with very slight head that dissipates quickly. Bland taste. Slightly sweet and salty. Deceptively light bodied for how dark it is, thin texture with average carbonation. Very abrupt finish.

Its like a very light chimay grand cru. Better than I expected, but still not impressive at all.

Dark colored with foamy white head... Fruit like flavored, sweet and bitter notes mixed together.

12oz bottle, thanks to Greg. Best by 5/27/13. Clear brown / red color. Bit of bubbly off-white head, fades to nearly nothing. Lighter carbonation, light body. Kind of watery, not really a fan of the texture. Sweet taste, kind of a sweet nutty flavor. Some caramel, macro feel to the texture, light spice, maybe some honey. Doesn’t really taste "abbey" at all. Artificial flavors added to attempt a "Belgian" profile just taste artificial. I managed to finish the whole bottle, but I didn’t really enjoy it.

12oz Bottle & Tumbler. Aroma is light with very faint fruit & spice undertones. Pours a medium amber color with a beige head which quickly dissipates into minimal lacing. Taste is vaguely suggestive of (slightly) sweet toffee with some roasted bitterness. Watery finish with no aftertaste. This is an inoffensive, but unimpressive brew.
