Purchased at Tacoma Boys.
Appearance: Beautiful clear orange amber color. Off white head that leaves a thin yet prominent cap, and nice lacing.
Smell: Outstanding. Slightly sweet smelling earthy pine.
Taste. Nice balance. Getting the juniper berries more in the aftertaste, not as heavy as I thought it may be. Fresh woodiness.
Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation and fairly creamy.
Overall: Am always on the lookout for beer with juniper. Best I've found so far but still not quite what I am after as far as the juniper goes. Very surprised by this. Wasn't sure what I'd get with Blue Moon but this is solid in my opinion.

BBD of 03-31-14

Pours an effervescent copper with 2+ fingers of cream colored head. Good head retention with alright lacing

S: Pears & faint medicinal notes, some brown sugar as well.

T: Pineyness & leafy, plus peppery hops up front. Some medicinal notes & pears as this warms, leafy hops as well. Finishes fruity with muted leafy hops

MF: Medium bodied with slight carbonation, okay balance

Drinks okay, but not in love with the hops being used. One & done. Not sure I buy any more of this series, not very interesting

From the 650 ml. bottle stamped on the neck with MAR3114-C210011342. Sampled on November 20, 2013.

It begins with a deep mahogany brown pour with a modest off-white head that erupts at the very end but eventually settles down.

The nose is vibrant with pine trees in a forest and juniper berries. Bready malts too.

The body is medium and quite smooth.

The flavor has a juicy juniper start with a mildly bitter pine and floral finish. Although it is only 7.5% ABV any alcohol is well hidden. Don't write this one off entirely.
