This was a very enjoyable beer to say the least. My buddy picked up a few and immediatly, because he does not like many beers, I thought it was going to be either exceptional or well below par. I was however pleasantly surprised with the taste of familiar winter flavors in it that I did not expect and a smell that that was equally pleasant. I would suggest this a beer to appreciate and enjoy but I couldn't have more than two at a time because I felt as though I was being selfish or spoiling myself. Bottom line though: if given the chance definatly partake in this one.

i was very pleased to find this new winter ale at the liquor store. smells rich with various flavors, caramel predominately.

taste is the best out of all of the blue moon family i have ever had. extremely lavish with caramel flavor amongst vanilla and almost a nutty taste. finishing up each sip leaves me anticipating the next.

Appearance:
Drank this from the bottle at a holiday party. I thought it had a nice enough presentation.

Smell:
Smells of cinnamon and nutmeg with a hint of a pleasant beer scent.

Taste:
Tastes like it smells like. The balance between the spices and the beer was really good.

Mouthfeel:
It was a nice medium mouthfeel with a pleasant, mildly spiced, finish.

Overall:
This was a pleasant Dubbel with a nice balance of cinnamon and nutmeg flavors.

I tried this beer on tap at Sky in Sudbury, MA. I was surprised at how much I liked this beer. The head was creamy and the mouthfeel was full. It has a gingerbread aftertaste that I liked. It reminded me of Anderson Valley's Winter Solstice of several years ago. I hope this is available in 1/6ths!

Reviewed 1-24-10
Reviewed cold from a bottle to a glass

A - Dark brown with 2 fingers of foam and after it settled with a thin layer of lacing

S - Roasted coffee with a sweat caramel smell, hints of citrus but over shadowed by the coffee/caramel aroma

T - Smooth caramel and coffee taste, couldn't pick out any citrus taste. Light aftertaste but nothing that turned me way

M/D - A real drinkable medium bodied brew. Very smooth tasting seasonal from Coors or Miller/Coors or whatever their name is now. I well done seasonal that should be tried. Easy for me to have a couple in an evening

This beer has GREAT drinkability Get an A

It goes down EZ

No bitter after taste

It is a little sweet, but they claim they use belgium sugar

Would recommend and would like if this was available all year round, instead of a seasonal beer. The best of the "blue moon" group

Its a good transition beer from cheap bud light type beer towards a craft beer. Has a spicey flavor, but has no after taste which is something i liked about it cause no other beers ive tried have done that. Also if you arnt a fan of christmas ales dont try this one.
