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.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

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.

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.
