Ever since having a Boulevard Tank 7 I have been on a quest for American Farmhouse Ales. This was my next progression. My hopes were set too high and I was left unimpressed.

The nose was probably the best part, the citrus and wheat that is unmistakably akin to the Blue Moon that we all know is present right off the bat. I sensed a little berry as well, strawberry?

As far as taste goes, it seems just like a typical blue moon but and more floral than fruity. The orange and yeast is undeniably there. Mildly carbonated, and leaves that coating that seems to develop from Blue Moon.

Overall - it's a typical Blue Moon Seasonal. it seems as if instead of creating a completely different beer for their portfolio they just constantly modify their bread winner. I'm not saying it's a bad marketing strategy, but it lacks in creativity

3.53/5  rDev +15%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Purchased from one of the local grocery stores.

A: A nice amber color but it has poor head and retention.

S: Malty with a little hop. Some fruit as well. Nice.

T: Malt, fruit, pepper and some sweetness. Complex but not great.

M: Smooth with some richness. Nice carbonation.

O: Pretty decent for a large brewer. Worth trying.
