Poured this Belgian Pale Ale from a bottle into a pint glass. Poured a amber color, produced a off white head with average retention and below average lacing. The aroma of the ale was faint, wheat and coriander. Light in body, this ale is very sweet, some toasted malt, very fruity although i cant put my finger on the fruit. not a lot of balance here- not much to talk about other then its just not a very good beer.

A- very light amber color with a very light lacing that is very hard to detect unless looking up close.

S- wheat, grains, grass?, coriander, corn?

T- starts with a extremely sweet flavor up front with a very lightly dry ending that tends to die out quickly and leaves a macro brew lager flavor lingering.

M- starts out decent then feels like you just drank flavored water

O- A style that blue moon did not try too hard to make. will not buy again.

12oz bottle into pint glass.

Pours a medium amber color with off white head.

Nose is malty with caramel and honey notes. Nothing distinctly Belgian or pale ale-ish.

Taste is sweet and syrupy. Caramel roasted grains and a slight acidity as well, hints of rotten/brown apples. Don't taste any Belgian yeast and barely any aromatic hop presence. Bittering hops quite pronounced.

Moderate carbonation and medium-bodied.

I don't know why they call it a Belgian Pale Ale. Tolerable, but not special in any way. Won't seek out ever.
