Blue Moon Agave Nectar Ale

Yet another Blue Moon has arrived on the beer scene, and this one is a replacement of Blue Moon Summer, or Honey Moon. This here is Blue Moon Agave Nectar Ale, 5.6% ABV. Yes there will not be any more Blue Moon Summer, I really don’t know why. There just won’t be.  This Blue Moon pours a semi clear deeper gold color, with a nice finger and a half white head that stays a short while, and makes nice lacing. There is a descent amount of light coming through the glass with a normal, steady stream of carbonation bubbles.  The aroma is sweet with just a touch of wheat. I do get a funny scent of what seems to be a fruit juice, something like tropical pineapple but very faint. The taste on this seasonal Blue Moon is crisp like most of their beers tend to be, but there is also a big almost tropic sweetness there from the Agave nectar. You do get a faint yet light wheat flavor as well but it is almost non-present. Taste on this reminds of Blue Moon Summer, which is a great beer. I might go as far and say it is a bit under rated. The finish on this Blue Moon Agave Nectar Ale is sweet clean refreshing, and I found that the aftertaste was just as sweet but a step down, still good and cleaned up nicely. There were no wheat flavors in the aftertaste just the Agave sweetness. This beer is great in the words of my father. So overall I would say this is getting an A from me. This is just an average beer that has been made slightly better than that. But I have to say that the Blue Moon Brewing Co. is rather under rated, they really don’t blow the roof of the craft beer world, but they really brew neat, awesome and great tasting beers. This is a great example of one of those beers. So go and try this one and you’ll really understand where I am coming from. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
