Goblet. Dark amber with a fizzy soda pop head. Odor is mainly alcohol with maybe a hint of malts. Bland taste, not at all what I was expecting for a Blue Moon.

Deep brown pour, very light head and lace. Sweet malt and breads. Sugar and caramel aroma. Nothing unique to it.

Pours a red-copper, with a small off-white head. Mild malty aroma with some earthy notes. Flavor is much of the same, with some dark fruit and caramel. The finish is sweet with some lingering note.

Bottle. Sweet caramel aroma, above average carbonation. Sweet caramel mouthfeel, sweet finish. Delightful!

VALIS (229) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 28, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2013 Mostly soap on the nose, faint spices. Burnt amber color is promising, but like a lot of mass produced beers, the taste aims for inoffensiveness rather than complexity. Vaguely spicy finish. Why make it so smooth and watery? The Coors crowd isnt going to be buying this, so who do you think is picking a beer called "Winter Abbey Ale" off the shelves? Craft beer fans. Needs to be much bolder.

No aroma. Thin, whispy head, little to no flavor. Another. Overrated beer. The color may be the saving grace.

This was good but one dimensional. The description really says it all, strong caramel aroma and toffee finish. I detected a bit of chocolate malt but definitely not a bad winter ale from blue moon.

Tybalt (212) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Actually a beautiful beer...pours reddish copper - nice fluffy tan head. First taste was very roasted-like...but the roastiness faded into more of a blackberry taste finishing with red wine vinegar. Not a lot of body...but still mildly satisfying.

GirlyBeer (190) - Old Orchard Beach, Maine, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Hazy deep copper color with a thin tan head. Almost untraceable grain aroma. Roasty and toasty grains with a sugary taste and a metalic hop finish. Sweet sticky, medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, cloyingly sweet. Some sort of spice that stings the toungue. The fact that they added sugar and say so in the label is a bad sign to me. Theyre not lying, you can taste the sugar... OR you could just make a better beer.

Has a reddish amber colour. The aroma is mostly sweet and caramel malty. Its pretty disappointing, even though I only bought a single bottle.
