Blue Moon Brewmaster’s Autumn Sampler

The second of my three-posts-in-three-days report on fall 12-packs…

Next up: Blue Moon Brewmaster’s Autumn Sampler

I don’t drink a lot of Blue Moon, though I love it in the can beside the pool. But I was hunting for fall seasonal mixed 12-packs and thought I’d give the Blue Moon Brewing Company’s fall seasonal 12-pack a try.

The mixed 12-pack came with:

  • Belgian White, the flagship Blue Moon we have all come to know and love, but keep the orange-slice garnish (5.4%)
  • Belgian-Style Pale Ale, this drinkable brew has malty and light citrus flavors (5.4%)
  • Harvest Pumpkin Ale, “the first nationally available pumpkin ale” – not surprising when you are owned by MillerCoors (5.7%)
  • Caramel Apple Spiced Ale, brewed in honor of the Blue Moon on August 31, 2012, this beer is made with a blend of apple juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and caramel malts (5.8%)

Did you know – a Blue Moon is the second full moon in a calendar month. This past August, the first full moon was on August 1, and the second full moon was on August 31. A Blue Moon happens about every 2-3 years.
