Bottled. Added a little bit of it to my potato leek soup and it was delicious, so obviously this beer is awesome.yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Pours rather flat, no head. Deep umber brown pour. Mildly spicy but kind of clumsy yeast aroma. Moderate herbal (thyme, rosemary) notes. Good body, smooth, easy drinking. A good amount of personality, very wintery. Certainly one of the better macro products out there. The low carbonation feels quite appropriate when drinking it.
Two 12 oz bottles as a gift from a friend. Aroma is faintly spicy and belgian yeasty. Flavor is light caramel, candy sugar, a little wheaty. Medium body with sharp finish. This beer is not great, but its a little bit interesting and fairly drinkable. Its miles ahead of some of the other Blue Moon offerings I have tried lately, specifically the Pale Moon, Honey Moon Summer Ale, and the Full Moon Winter Ale.

Bottle. Poured amber with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma of toasted malts. The flavor had toasted malts, brown sugar, and caramel. Light to medium body, sweet, and a hint of spice in the end. aracauna (3707) - Georgia, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Just like the rest of Coors Blue Moon beers, this is not a bad beer. Also like the rest of the line, it’s not a great beer. This may be going for the Belgian Abbey, but it’s 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 it’s a little more than that. mar (5456) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 18, 2010
bottle thanks to fratto. poured a deep amber with a cream head. nose is fruity yeast, bready malts, not too impressive. decent on the palate, flavor is yeast, light spices, and not much else.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a caramel-amber color with a very large tan head. The aroma was sweet, tangy and a bit tart. The flavor was sweetish, tangy and had a hint of caramel but not a whole lot else. The finish was long and tangy. Nothing special. TomTiedemann (249) - Levittown, New York, USA - DEC 14, 2010
This was a nice winter touch, but too many micro and crafts to worry about now. cbfobes (2888) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2010
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear copper with an off white head, aroma is sweet with malt and a hint of sugar, the flavor is sweet but very boring, nothing special here. geeklimit (294) - USA - DEC 13, 2010
spicy hoppy smell. Nice head that dissipates fairly quickly. dark brown appearance with hardly any carbonation. light body, much lighter than you’d expect for a beer this dark and a bit of a sticky stale aftertaste. Pretty boring overall, I’d choose it on $0.50-bottle night. Chudwick (3426) - Taylor Mill, 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.
