This beer is confusing and disjointed. I don't get it, doesn't taste like a Blue Moon or like a Farmhouse Ale. Just tastes old and stale.

Would Drink Again: No
Would Purchase Again: No

Purchased from one of the local grocery stores.

A: A nice amber color but it has poor head and retention.

S: Malty with a little hop. Some fruit as well. Nice.

T: Malt, fruit, pepper and some sweetness. Complex but not great.

M: Smooth with some richness. Nice carbonation.

O: Pretty decent for a large brewer. Worth trying.
