while there is nothing fundamental wrong with this beer, it lacks anything that would make a abbey special to drink in the fall/winter season. got a nice malt with a touch of sweetness. medium malts with very little hop flavor. decent, not great. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2010
[Bottle] Pours a deep amber color with a small, fleeting head. Aroma of caramel malts, some nut and earth. The taste is of caramel, light brown sugar and some earthy/yeasty notes. Sweet finish, but watered down taste throughout. Faintly reminded me of Fat Tire, with a little spice thrown in for good measure. SphinxTX (2878) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - NOV 15, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy brown with beige head. Aroma of light fruit, malt, a bit of spice. Flavor is very much the same with a pleasant maltiness. Mouth feel is light-medium body with fizzy carbonation. Overall, not all that bad. Sammer (1119) - Plano, Texas, USA - NOV 15, 2010
Brownish pour from bottle with a thin head. Aroma and taste are brown sugar, malts, caramel and baking spices. Nice earthy finish. One of Blue Moon’s better offerings. I’d drink this one again. djd07 (16289) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 15, 2010
Bottle out of winter sampler 12 pack. Pours a dark brown and light tan head wit roasted malt aroma and brown sugar. Medium mouthfeel with a light malt flavor and a bit watery. Easy to drink, a decent belgian.

Clear, ruby-brown with a small head. Aroma of caramel and roasted malt and candy. Taste is caramel, sugar and a little wheat. Thin to medium body. Ok but not impressive. bubbleflubber (2244) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Pours a deep caramel into the glass with a fully diminished head that leaves a thin ring of lace down the pull. The nose is of caramel and brown sugar. The flavors are of caramel malt, corn (bad macro) notes, some light grain, and finishing with an over-processed plastic corn essence. The body is soda-like, a bit seltzery without a lot of complexity. There is some malty substance, but in the end, it just doesn’t come together as a full Abbey brew.

Experienced from a 12oz bottle in an English pint glass. The beer pours a semi-translucent medium brown, with a moderate off-white head. The aroma is fairly flaccid, certainly failing to reveal flavors in anywhere near the same strata as abbey-type beers. The palate is initially shy, before opening up a bit as the sample warms. Restrained caramel malt notes come through, along with a set of vaguely Belgian esters. Carbonation levels attempts to clone greats like Chimay and Westmalle, but instead only makes the beer seem thin and insipid. The finish is crisp, but also slightly plebeian. Overall, an absolutely forgettable beer, and an open mockery of the great beers of Trappist brewers in Europe. bb (9790) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Bottle. 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. bpreo (3011) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Tastes pretty darn good, I must say. Made by Coors, which is kind of sad, but no shame when you drink a Seasonal brew. I’m glad to finally see the winters coming around again.
