Blue Moon Mountain Abbey Ale

The Blue Moon Brewing Company is a Molson-Coors brand, based out of Golden, Colorado. This 5.6% ABV beer uses Belgian sugar and wheat.

The beer pours dark copper and brown in color, trending towards ruby. There is a half-inch of khaki head. The aroma is tart, fruity, oranges, cherries, and grapes, almost vinous, along with some caramel. The taste is the reverse of the aroma, with the caramel coming out first and most, with a lighter cherry fruit in the background, and a very light and soft vinous note. The beer drinks soft, a bit smooth, but with a strong, fine carbonation as well. Drinkable, but of course, Blue Moon beers are like the ultra-beginner level of Belgian influenced beers, barely giving one an introduction.
