I'm not a huge fan of Red Ales but this came in a medley 12 pack. The beer tasted a little sweet like all red ales do for me but I powered through because even a red ale tastes better than a Coor's ( wait they brew this one, hmmm).
Two of the 12 pack are reds so ill have to try out the second to make sure I thought it was ehhhh!.

From a sampler pack at a neighborhood party. I concur with the review by beergoot. Reminded me of a light version of Monk's Flemish Sour Ale. Very enjoyable and I will definitely seek this one, if affordable, out as I am a fan of the style.

Amber hued with a half inch head of tiny beige colored creamy suds on top. Light Brussels lacing. Aroma of pepper is prominent along with light malt. The pepper is dominant on the front of the palate. It is also dominating the fade,but there is some light malt to smooth it out. The mouth is smooth and creamy.

Blue Moon Farmhouse Red Ale brewed By Coors brewing Company. This brew pours out a light brown color with a small white head. The smell of this brew is corn and grains. You also pick up on some bitterness in this brew. Now for the taste of this brew, it is smooth but rich. There is a hit of spice at the end. This brew is different from most brews I had. There is nothing over powering in this brew. I kinda like this brew. The mouthfeel is nice and smooth and refreshing. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4 out of 5. I would get this brew again.

Blue Moon Farmhouse Red Ale from Coors Brewing Company, on sale at the local grocer. Eh, what the Hell, right? Poured from the bottle into a glass, this has got a 3/4 finger thick head, dark copper transparent body, and somewhat decent lacing.

I can't process what it is that I'm smelling. Not very strong a scent, I can tell you that. Hmm...Not bad, but nothing heavenly. I'm fairly neutral here.

Initial taste is like a nicely-done shandy or radler with its clean tartness. There is also a faint sweetness throughout that I can't really say WHERE it is, exactly, it is coming from. All in all a very balanced brew with its mysterious components doing the job quite nicely. Clean,dry finish.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Blue Moon Farmhouse Red has zero lingering elements for me. Quite refreshing for Ohio's asphyxiating humidity during the dog days of summer.

Overall a respectable 3.5 for Blue Moon Farmhouse Red Ale from Coors Brewing Company. This was my first of this seemingly revivalist style of brew. But hey, its back for a reason! I may buy this brew again.

OK, I am keeping an open mind, but this is the Saison category. Label says "Saison/Flanders Style Ale." Pours an attractive coppery reddish amber with plenty of head.

I suppose you could say the slight sween 'n' sour taste is a nod to Flemish tradition. There is a little malty interest with some slight Belgian yeasty tang. However, as you sip this seems to have all the unpleasant features of cheap beers-- metallic aftertaste, dishwatery bitterness, musty nose, sweetness like a medicinal coverup.

This is filtered clear to the bottom of the bottle. I think it will be awhile before many of the industrial brewers can see yeast in their bottles without a shudder. From the 12 oz bottle in a six pack purchased at The Market in Anacortes, Wash. I poured the first one out after a couple of gulps, so I thought a more pensive tasting would be in order. It's just very anemic and seems like a collection of off-flavors in search of a style.
