A: Medium bronze color with a fluffy white head. The beer is very clear and looks great. Spotty lacing.
S: It smells like Pine Sol. Really it reminds me of the cleaner more than actual pine trees. I don't get anything else from it.
T: I get a light caramel and toast flavor. It has a nice grain flavor to it. There's a mellow earthy flavor in there. The bitterness is extremely low. Hop flavor is also extremely low, giving only a hint of pine resin. I don't pick up any Belgian yeast flavor either. I don't know how it can fall so flat after smelling so bold.
M: The mouthfeel is good in respect to the smoothness of the beer while leaving it dry in the mouth, but it severely lacks any bite from hop bitterness.
O: This beer just isn't there. It's like a Belgo Pale on training wheels or something. From just tasting the beer I can tell that the right ingredients are in there, but just not enough of them! It's like a runner that takes the time to train for a marathon but only puts out 50% at the race. You know it's in there somewhere but....aaah! I would not recommend wasting your time on this beer.

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.

2.9/5 rDev -7.3%
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).

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.

3.04/5 rDev -2.9%
Tried two bottles, one chilled and one a bit warmer. The warmer was slightly better.
Nice looking brew with a decent head that takes a while to dissapate and leaves a bit of lace. Amber color and very clear.
Nose was too subdued to detect any characteristics.
Taste was again not very telling with some hops.
Mouth was decent with some feel and carbonation.
Finish is a bit dry and almost sour on the back of the tounge.
Overall not a bad beer but very disappointing for a "Expressionist Collection" special editiion.
Have ri remark that this is pretty distant from and Begian Pale I had.
