There was an oddness to this flavor that I just couldn't place. Slightly bitter, lacking something. The spices overshadowed the usual pleasant warmth and fullness of the wheat. I didn't taste any apple, only a hint at what should be caramel but came off more chemical in taste than treat. Not a flavor I would choose intentionally, and coupled with the farmhouse red, it will probably keep me from buying any more of the fall cases even though I enjoy the horchata and pumpkin.

After the surprising qualities bestowed upon me with Blue Moon Cinnamon Horchata Ale, a pleasantly subtle and delicious spiced brew, I'm anxious to see how Blue Moon does Caramel Apple Spiced Ale. Let's light it on fire.

Appearance - Dark red, amber color; pours thicker than I initially expected but, given its caramel nature, this isn't too surprising.

Smell - Surprisingly little in the nose, similar to Cinnamon Horchata, aside from some cooked/toasted grains, maybe. All I can really distinguish. No evidence of caramel apple whatsoever.

Taste - Heavy and funky, with some faint caramel taste sneaking in, but creamier and soapier rather than sweeter and savorier.

Mouthfeel - Leaves a rather pungent aftertaste, unlike the Cinnamon Horchata, which blows this one out of the water, with its quiet inclusion of spices and grains.

There's a reason this is a limited autumn release, as it's so far the weakest fall seasonal I've had.
