Blue Moon (Graffiti Collection) Pine in the Neck has a very thick, somewhat soapy, off-white head, a deep, golden-orange appearance, bubble streams, lots of sediment roiling about, and heavy lacing left behind. Aroma is of sweet, white bread and piney hop oil. Taste is of all that, with a hefty bitterness that charges forward during the sip. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Pine in the Neck finishes mostly dry, refreshing, and exceptionally drinkable. This beer proves, once again, that the major brewers can produce craft beers that can go toe to toe with just about anything on the market. Drinking this, one can understand the insecurity and outright fear that one notices in the rhetoric of the craft breweries. I love it!

Purchased at Tacoma Boys.
Appearance: Beautiful clear orange amber color. Off white head that leaves a thin yet prominent cap, and nice lacing.
Smell: Outstanding. Slightly sweet smelling earthy pine.
Taste. Nice balance. Getting the juniper berries more in the aftertaste, not as heavy as I thought it may be. Fresh woodiness.
Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation and fairly creamy.
Overall: Am always on the lookout for beer with juniper. Best I've found so far but still not quite what I am after as far as the juniper goes. Very surprised by this. Wasn't sure what I'd get with Blue Moon but this is solid in my opinion.

AKA Beerfest Ale, the official beer of Cincinnati Beerfest 2013. Tea-colored ale with a tan foamy head. Aromas of biscuit and citrus. Has a sweet citrus and citrus rind flavor with notes of yeasty biscuit and something like raisins. Has a medium-weight, smooth body and very little bite from the hops.
