12 ounce bottle pours a rich mahogany brown color with a small creamy beige head. Sweet toasted malt nose has notes of cane syrup and brown sugar. Sweet toasted malt flavor has a nutty pecan-like flavor that has a clinging, chewy mouthfeel. Slightly fruity with a touch of vanilla and grain in the finish.

llcooldave (1117) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Pours a rich brown clear copper color accompanied by a good thick creamy head. Toasted malt and alcohol aromas. Flavor is similar as the aroma but with added sweet notes; chocolate & caramel. Highly carbonated on the palate. Iím a bit indifferent to it but at least its has some flavor and is unoffensive.

garrison (789) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Bottle from Fergueson Krogerst. Aroma is fairly malty with a bit of sweetness. rain sugar flavors, and a tad bit lacking in richness. A touch of hops in the finish. Some light roast notes. Not bad really, but not great. Doesnít taste like a true Belgian abbey alethough.

Chudwick (2209) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - DEC 12, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2011 bottle in a pint glass pours clear amber with offwhite head and noticeable lacing. Nose is caramel malts. Aroma is candy, wheat and caramel malts. Taste is sweet. Body is medium and texture is oily. Finish is drab. Always a nice change from the regular Blue Moon.

This was a nice winter touch, but too many micro and crafts to worry about now.

Just like the rest of Coors Blue Moon beers, this is not a bad beer. Also like the rest of the line, itís not a great beer. This may be going for the Belgian Abbey, but itís really only a slightly fruitier than normal brown ale. Actually, there is a good bit of spice in the nose from the fermentation of the yeast, so itís a little more than that.

Dark amber pour with little head or lacing. Smooth taste, very sweet, not much depth. Didnít love it and didnít hate it. Average

drdisque (569) - Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Sweet, very smooth slightly toasted malt flavor. Touch of wheat and yeast and a tiny bit of spice. Fairly restrained flavor for a Belgian but thatís probably to make it more approachable. Not bad though.

Blairgus (2728) - California, USA - DEC 10, 2011
10 Dec 2011, bottle. med caramel color, clear, no bubbles and only faint lacing. smells like a copper ale and nothing like a belgian ale. rich roasted malt and nice enough. med/thin body and fizzy. tastes of toasted nuts, roasted malt, with the faintest hint of some raisins in the distant background. a bit of burnt coffee as well. all very balanced and mellow. nothing agressive. nice enough

seymour (1473) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Tasted from bottle into nucleated tulip glass. Poured a reddish-brown copper color with some chill haze and weak white foam which subsided fairly quickly to a thin film of bubbles, almost no lace. Aromas of whole-wheat bread, toast, roasted grain, but very little hops. Not much hops in the flavor/bitterness either. Rich malt flavor, faint hints of raisins and other dark fruits. Not as fruity and not as much caramel, toffee, nuts, fermentation esters/phenols as Iíd hoped for. Not very good for a "Belgian" beer, particularly one advertised as a special winter warmer, and not an Abbey at all, but damn fine for a Coors.
