Presentation: 12 oz longneck, date stamped on the neck. Same style design as the other Blue Moons with a red theme to the label. I had this on tap at Coors field too, but basing review on the bottle.

Appearance: Pours a clear copper with a nice off white head, decent retention but very little lacing.

Smell: Bready malt, a bit of what I think of as belgian yeast notes, and a little bit of floral hops late.

Taste: Medium bodied, tastes right along with what I would expect from the aroma. Dominated by a nice malt backbone with a mild hop and yeast component.

Overall impression: Just what I've come to expect from Blue Moon - nothing stellar, but a drinkable offering that may just be your saving grace at a BMC bar.

From the summer variety pack. Pours clear copper with one finger of white head. Some minor lacing. Smell is floral and citrus. Taste is sweet tangy malts , tart yeastiness, and minor citrus hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium with perfect carbonation. Finishes medium dry. Good emulation of the style. Nice introduction to Belgian Pale Ale from an American perspective.

I bought a 12pk Winter variety pack of this from Woodman's in Janesville, WI in Winter 2011.

Pours a copper/amber color with a bubbly head the slowly disappears. Has some mild scents of hops and some grains. Has a slighty bitter tone to the taste. Some bready dough and yeast tastes as well. Has an overall dryer taste than most of the Blue Moon line. Crisp and extremely drinkable, but nothing too special about it. Decent for a Macro-brew, but about average among mirco-brews.

Golden honey colored with a fizzy white head that dissapates pretty quickly, minimal lacing. Faint apple spiciness in the nose with mild hops. Tastes okay,Pale moon is to belgian pale what blue moon is to belgian wit, a sort of wimpier version for the typical macro drinking public.Has a medium bodied mouthfeel and really is pretty drinkable but nothing special.
