SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Pours a dark, rich, clear coppery red with an off-white head. The aroma is strongly malty with some faint sweetness. Tastes sweet, malty and little like caramel. On the heavier side of medium-bodied with a lightly sticky, but creamy texture and soft mouth carbonation, Blue Moon Winter Abbey Ale finishes sweet and smooth. Not really a Belgian ale though.

mansquito (6431) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Holiday Party: (free): Pours copper colour with off-white head. Aroma is mostly of caramel malts, with hint of sugar (I didn’t notice them to be roasted). Taste is ok. Simple, a little sweet. No hops or yeast, but at least there is a good amount of flavour. As much ideological opposition as beer geeks/nerds/snobs have to macros, one has to admit that this as just as good as a lot of lower tier micros. Drinkable (I had about 6 of these, as the other available beers were Stella and Harpoon WInter), and as one can see sessionable.

dcschiller (2208) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 10, 2010
(12oz bottle). Pours mahogany with off-white head. Decent carbonation. Aroma of candided sugar, banana. Sweet with a little sour at the end. Lighter bodied with slick texture. Finish is pretty smooth. Definitely sense the belgian components in this one.

Bronze beer with a light tan head. Caramel, citrus, and light yeast aroma. Citrus, light caramel, and light wheat flavor. Medium bodied. Caramel, wheat, and citrus lingers.

weihenweizen (3825) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Refrigerated bottle poured into a glass. Pours a clear medium brown with light brown bottom. Small off-white head, good lacing, and heavy body. Taste is complex roasted malt, caramel, and hops in the finish. Just not very good.

3.3
garrison (812) - 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. Doesn’t taste like a true Belgian abbey alethough.

3.2
notalush (5875) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Pours a fairly clear ruby - lightly estery nose, with sweet notes of candi sugar, raisin, toffee - fairly full carbonation in the mouth - a little tart and acidic up front, with some wheaty character and toasted graininess - the toasted character lingers as a sweetness develops through the middle, bringing a somewhat chewy toffee character - lingering sweetness in the finish - not terribly complex, but fairly smooth and slightly warming/spicy on the end.

3.2
PorterPounder (7966) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Super Market - 12 oz bottle. Dark amber pour, tight, off white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Sweet, sugary aroma with hints of Christmas spices. Flavor has some toffee notes, some candied sugar, a back end of caramel and just a hint of Christmas spices. Mouthfeel is a bit lacking, thickness does not match the flavor. Overall, decent though.
