Let me start off by saying I enjoy regular Blue Moon Belgian white. It's one of my go to beers for hanging out with friends (they aren't very adventurous with beer)
Appearance- poured this into a fat pilsner glass. Definitely a lot darker than I though Blue Moon would pull off. It's a brown/amber color, still transparent. The head isn't anything to write home about but it's a slightly tan white that fades thin and comes back with a little swirl.
Smell- hmm, still get a blue moon smell, with a bit of nuttyness and mayyybe caramel and maple syrup. Isn't bad, but not perfect.
Taste- A little nutty caramel, semi-sweetness. Definitely some spice to it, a good amount too; not overpowering and not too little. Still makes for a thin, easy drinking beer. Good tasting
Mouthfeel- A little sweetness at first, but the after taste gets dry, leaving me wanting more. Very thin and sessionable.
Overall- I think just gets a bad rep cause Coors is so heavily associated with Blue Moon and we all know they can't make beer for the life of them, but Blue Moon has really surprised me with this beer and their pumpkin seasonal. Didn't like Pale Moon, but if you're looking for a good seasonal beer to bring to a party or sit at home and have a few, this is worth trying. It's just as good, if not better than some of the micro-brewed winter seasonals I've had so far (and I work at a liquor store, so I've tried all the ones we got in so far) Will buy again for the right occasion.
