3.56/5  rDev +14.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – Pours an amber copper color with only the tiniest bit of a white head. The head being small is lost almost instantly, leaving only trace lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is heaviest of caramel and a bready and lightly roasted malt aroma. A bit of an almost herbal smell are mixed with these as well as a light citrus and Belgian spice smell (although these are very weak in comparison to many of the other Belgian style ales produced by Blue Moon).

Taste – A big caramel sweetness greets the tongue with a strong showing of a bready flavor as well. As the flavor advances it remains rather sweet with some orange and tangerine flavors coming more toward the middle and the end. In the middle of the taste a hint of coriander and a toffee like flavor also join the profile. While overall rather sweet, some hop flavors of a citrus nature greet the tongue at the end giving a little bitter bite to mellow some of the sweet caramel, toffee and citrus flavors.

Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the medium side with a carbonation level that is rather average as well. Not bad for the style although a slightly higher carbonation level may have better accentuated the sweeter caramel and fruit flavors of the brew slightly better.

Overall – A rather tasty and quite easy drinking brew that was on the rather cheap side ($ 14 for a 12 pack sampler). A rather enjoyable brew overall.

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.

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).

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.

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.
