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.

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.

Not bad for a red, but there are better alternatives.

Appearance - Pours a relatively clear reddish copper color with a finger width beige head that fizzes away like soda, leaving only a patch of suds on the surface. Lacing is small and spotty with no stick.

Smell - A predominant wheat aroma with a light fruity sourness and slight spice.

Taste - Wheat hits first, then a lemony sourness. Slight spice and apple sweetness near the finish. Bland wheat aftertaste once the sourness fades.

Mouthfeel - Light, watery body with prickly carbonation.

Overall - A particularly uninspiring brew for what, at least on paper, sounds like an interesting hybrid. Not well executed, resulting in a pretty simple flavor profile for what should have been expected, and it leaves much to be desired. In the least it's drinkable, but most beers are.

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.

The nose is weak sour vinegar, caramel malt, apple juice and pear. The flavor is a bit off as the tart is sort of sour and not a puckering Flanders type of tart. This is more malty than most of either advertised style. It has an apple juice sweetness and is incredibly thin.

Blue Moon products are usually above average and good examples for the price but this missed the mark.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked FEB0915-CO5101734. Sampled on October 3, 2014.

Reddish brown pour with a short lived off-white head. Good clarity.

The aroma is more like caramel malts with a touch of dark fruit. I think I expected something more from the style.

Light to medium body.

The taste is quite sweet and caramel-like more than fruit and spice.
