look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Served from a cold bottle into a pint glass. Bottle advertises this beer as part of Blue Moon's "Expressionist Collection."

A - Golden brown with a red tint. Poured a large 2 finger head but it disappeared almost immediately; lacing still remained; sides of the pint glass remained laced throughout the beer.

S - Smells like syrup or caramel; pretty underwhelming; smell the bread and yeast. Not much to write home about.

T - Caramel, slightly tangy; mildly bitter; not really typical of a quality Belgian Pale Ale.

M - Smooth; not too carbonated; bitter.

Overall - Average at best for a Belgian. I started this beer with high hopes but it fell a little bit flat. Taste is mildly boring; slightly bitter aftertaste; really not much to it. Average...wouldn't seek this beer out again. (789 characters)

Very good! Loved it! Surprised I liked it so much! Not bitter smooth but flavorful! Didn't taste the orange! Which is good because I don't like orange beer! (156 characters)

Best before (?) JUL2913 etched ontot he neck of the bottle. "Belgian Style Pale." Expressionist Collection, whatever that means...

Pours dark caramel amber, clear, under a puffy and loose medium khaki head, that stays pretty well and leaves less then impressive high strands of lace.

Biscuity malt nose, with a hint of smoke.

Mostly malty character, with notes of light caramel, vanilla, light smoke and just a slightly hop filled finish. Ehhh, nothing special, suprise, pseudo craft beer for newbies. Not sure where the "Belgian" comes in here, but I'm sure its a well researched buzz word that drives sales.

"A drinkable but pedestrian Belgian Pale" So true I had to lift this sentiment from another review. Best thing I could say...this would work in a maranaide for pork or chicken. (790 characters)

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Light brown with a thin white head that lingered. Lots of carbonation.

Smell: Mild nutty smell.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Light to medium bodied and smooth. Taste is watery with a nutty and malt flavor.

Overall: Drinkable, but another not so impressive beer from Blue Moon (Coors). (328 characters)

I was surprised by this macro version of the Belgian Pale Ale. It poured a dark slightly cloudy brown with a medium head. The aroma was fruity with caramel and that mouthwatering Belgian aroma. The taste was great with caramel, earthy hops, moderately sweet malt and a hint of banana esters. Although I am not usually a big fan of this style, I enjoyed this one from a sampler pack at a neighborhood pig roast and would definitely purchase a case if it is affordable. (467 characters)

Spicy nose over fruit, mostly orange with some floral, herbal spice. Pours brilliant amber under a snow white, clingy 2" foam cap. Palate is primarily fruit - orange with some herbal and spice notes but lacks depth and character. Also has a little sweetness that needs something to balance it. (293 characters)
