2.58/5  rDev -17.6%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.25

DATE TASTED: August 4, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Kisatsky's Tavern pint... OCCASION: convincing wife Shan that "Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives" is a mockumentary, not a documentary ... APPEARANCE: nice, lively orange-amber body; creamy white head that settles slowly and laces surprisingly well!... AROMA: caramel malts "round" the fragrant flower pot hops with some doughier, breadier elements--the citrus is subdued by an oddly malty punch... PALATE: medium-bodied, oily, antagonistic in its presence--mildly sessionable, if not for its Blue Moon calling card funked up aftertaste...TASTE: mild coriander sits amid malts that belie this beer's objective; mostly caramel and a 40 oz. malt profile that kills the enjoyability for the drinker.... OVERALL: another "miss" from the Blue Moon Expressionist Collection, though not to the extreme of the Blackberry Wit or the Agave--still, like finding out Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives" is not real, one feels this Belgian pale really is a distant attempt of the original...

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.
