Pours a deep clear amber, off-white head is about half an inch thick, retains as a lacing.
Bread and butter malt aroma, some caramel and maybe cloves.
Bready malt and some caramel sweetness. Very mild honey and citrus.
Medium body with a soft sting of carbonation.
A so-so ale, not the worst thing I've had from the Blue Moon line, but not the best either. Not terrible and easy to drink with a decent flavor. The biggest knock is there is nothing remotely Belgian about this. Even by BM standards, this is way out of the style it is classified as. If you can look beyond that, this is worth trying at least to quench your thirst.

3.23/5 rDev +3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
Poured from a bottle, drank from a pint glass.
Appearance: Pretty medium to dark amber colour, with an appetizing orange/red. Head is not super thick, and dissipates quicker than I would have hoped. Little visible carbonation
Smell: Sugary malts and hops abound. A slight sour characteristic, definitely in a good way. Slightly toasty, biscuity Vienna malt. Some subtle fruity esters, but mostly sweet hops.
Taste: The sweet but slightly toasty Vienna malt is quite apparent here, and is balanced by some bittering hops. Pretty basic considering what this style can be, so it loses points here. Still tasty overall though.
Mouthfeel: Leaves a sweet, almost cloyingly malty aftertaste, which isn't the best. About the right level of carbonation (low to moderate). No booziness.
Overall: Nothing to write home about, but if it was between this and domestic American adjunct lagers, I would take this every time with a grin on my face. Its pretty light, easy to drink, and doesn't really offend. Unfortunately it doesn't impress or stand out either, so I wouldn't seek this out.
