Personally don't understand the bad reviews. Yes, it's produced by Coors, but I don't hold that against it. Nice smell, nice colour, great taste, my favourite production from the Blue Moon family.

Appearance: Dark with an off-white head.

Smell: Wheat, a little yeasty, faint citrus and spices.

Taste: Same as the nose. Very little bitterness. Some caramel.

Mouthfeel: Moderately thick and carbonated

Overall: Hard not to compare this to the standard Blue Moon Belgian White. It is similar, but more spice and less citrus, a little more roast. Something is missing from the flavor; not sure what. Overall, it is not offensive, but it is hard to get excited about.

A dubbel? Well, not sure about that. Abbey? umm...k

A dirty water pour, some copper. Not much head, a bit soapy.

Sweet, hollow aroma. Added sugar most likely. Candied and fruity. Fake. eww

Fairly light bodied...or at least in the feel. Not a good representation of the style

Better than expected - but did not expect much. Nice brown type ale, not too spiced. Smooth, nice mellow beer that will not seek out, but would accept if offered.

Pours a nice dark copper color with a quickly fading head.

Smells of roasted malts, toffee, and carmel. Very sweet.

First sip I noted the same thing, sweetness. Too much. It's like a Desperados with roasted malts intstead of tequila.

Mouthfeel is lIle that of a fountain soda, and carbonation is fierce but not too much.

Overall this beer is a pass, too sweet for my palate and it lacks spice and depth of flavor.

This poured a nice coppery orange. The nose was malty along with a brown sugar syrupy smell. No hops to be found. The taste however was very thin. I was expecting some of that malty sweetness to come through but it ended very quickly. I thought the mouth feel was a bit too bubbly, almost soft drink fizz. It wasn't a bad beer, it was however average.
