Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a deeper amber color bordering on mahogany with a big fizzy white head. The head of the brew fades fast at first, but then greatly slows in recession as time moves on. Once the head has eventually faded away a light film is left on top the brew with almost no lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is sweet with tons of caramel and molasses with some bready aromas mixed within. A little bit of spice smells are there as well producing a malty very lightly roasted and sweet smell overall.
Taste – The taste is very much as the nose would have suggested. It begins with a lightly toasted and bready flavor mixed with lots of caramel and some molasses. As the flavor advances spices of cinnamon and some allspice come to the tongue with some lighter fruit flavors. In the end, the mix of flavors, leaves a sweet and malty and lightly spiced flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average in its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side. Both are rather nice for the sweet flavors of the brew and make for a very easy drinker.
Overall –An easy drinking sweeter darker Belgian. Nothing exceptional, but for the price it was a good go to. gripweed57 (2462) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - NOV 26, 2014
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 (1217) - 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. I’m a bit indifferent to it but at least its has some flavor and is unoffensive. 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.

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. TomTiedemann (250) - Levittown, New York, USA - DEC 14, 2010
This was a nice winter touch, but too many micro and crafts to worry about now. aracauna (3606) - 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. kaser (6312) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Dark amber pour with little head or lacing. Smooth taste, very sweet, not much depth. Didn’t love it and didn’t hate it. Average drdisque (840) - 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 that’s probably to make it more approachable. Not bad though.
