Blue Moon First Peach Ale

The Blue Moon Brewing Company is a Molson-Coors brand, based out of Golden, Colorado. This 5.6% ABV seasonal collection release uses peach and coriander.

The beer pours a dark copper and amber in color. There is a half inch of off-white to light tan head. The aroma is full of peach, but more peach flavoring than fresh peach, with a roasted, almost nutty, maltiness behind it. The taste follows the aromas, lots of peach, roasted nutty malt, there is almost a strawberry and dark fruit note to the malt as well, along with a hint of spicy tobacco. The beer has a light to medium body with tingling, but not obtrusive, carbonation. I like what this is trying to do, but it just doesn’t quite gel for me. The peach comes across a bit strong and tastes artificial, and I think that is what prevents it from coming together in balance.
