I posted about Blue Moon Brewery’s White Ale not too long ago – and it was no secret that I didn’t like it. In the very bottom of our beer refridgerator, was a lonely Blue Moon bottle. Initially, I thought it was a nasty White Ale, left over from some get together, but the bottle said “Full Moon”. Intrigued, I popped the cap and tried it. This was a Winter Ale, one of my favorite styles, so it was rich with warm spices and savory malts. There was a little bit of oxidation, but that was probably because it’s Summer, and obviously that beer had been in there forever! I shouldn’t have been so quick to write off the Blue Moon Brewery, as this beer was pretty good; I stand by my statement that the White Ale sucks though.
When Winter arrives, I will give their new Winter a chance – at least one.
