look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dark amber with a thick head that dies to nothing and leaves no lace like all blue moon beers. Smells are caramel, spice, orange.. the taste follows with mostly a orange spice back ground. The mouthfeel is thin to slight medium. Overall its decent and I would have no issue drinking more.

Short straw is the last straw for me with blue moon, idk why I keep fooling myself into thinking they will ever put something good out, heck I'd settle for "o.k." I mean you'd think for the fact that they have what, at least 30 different "styles" (more like flavors) that they would eventually put out something worth drinking! Well I guess thats too much to ask from Coors. I mean can this even be called an "ale"!? I'm trying hard to have one good thing to say about this beer but I can't think of anything.

A: almost got this one right, it has the slightest reddish brown tinge but nothing compared to a good version of this style, plus it looks super watery and extremely bubbly and carbonated for a flanders style.
T: yup it's blue moon, no doubt about it. At least when you drink a schells or a summit, it's easy to tell that is' one but at least they have more than one base style of beer, I think blue moon always starts out as a blue moon Belgian white ale and then they add stuff to it to make it taste different initially but it finishes like the same gross tasting ale. This also has a DISGUSTING mid-palate that tastes like PEROXIDE, yeah you really nailed that "sour" style feel guys... NOT! Then as it warms it taste more like a pilsner than anything....EPIC FAIL.
O.A. I REALLY have to try hard to remember no matter how good a new blue moon "FLAVOR" SOUNDS it's never in no way gonna be different. SHOCKTOP FOREVER!
P.S. also I have a stomach ache from 1/4 of this beer! unbelievable!!! Also I think I'm going to throw my Cassanova's pint glass away cuz it tainted it so much, ICK!
