4.8 / 5.077 ReviewsExcellent BrewI have brewed about 5-6 batches so far and this has been the best beer I have made to date. Great taste, very much like Chimay red label.May 24, 2010Complex sweet and full ! If you can afford it Buy It !Hard to describe , after 5 weeks in the bottle . Very sweet , slightly bitter and dry used S-33 Dry yeast ) . Tons of mouthfeel ! Pretty impressive for a novice brewer !May 19, 2016BE WARNED!Because of the sugars in this beer it is a very angry fermenter. Attach a blow off to the primary or be prepared to deal with the consequences. I added a whole orange throughout the brewing process in a 2/3 1/3 ratio. I ran 2/3 of the thing through a cheese grater 30 minutes into the boil, then another 1/3 with about 10 minutes to spare. It is a very high (11.5 percent) alcohol beer, but doesn't overwhelm you with its alcohol flavor. At 2 weeks it will taste like touching the face of god, at 4 weeks the flavor loses its sweetness and transforms into a very mature, complex beer. I carbonated this one high in a Lambic /Champagne style.June 26, 2010Put a warning label on this oneAwesome beer. Let it bottle condition for at least a month. So far, every one of my friends that received a 16 oz bottle, informed me that this got them bombed.October 2, 2010Good as alwaysOrder was quick and correct just the way it is when I order from midwest thanksMarch 19, 2016Great beer to have on hand!This is a very good beer! My family has always enjoyed Blue Moon but this beer is a lot better and will always be on hand in our house.October 22, 2010YUM in the TUM!!!!This was my 2nd batch ever of ALL-Grain brewing and BOY am I loving this beer. Had to try a bottle after 3 weeks cause I just couldn't wait any longer.....and BOY, I wasn't disappointed. I LOVE Blue Moon and I almost think this is a better beer all around. So pour yourself a brew with an orange wedge and this beer will go down smooth. I WILL brew this one again...and again!!!!!!November 27, 2010It's a keeperI have made this brew a few times now with awesome results. I usually add a little more extract to bring up the ABV. I have a Grand Cru in the secondary right now and it's measuring at 10.5% abv and taste great. It has quickly become a favorite. Highly recommended.December 7, 2010A Good BrewThis was my first brew. Used the Wyeast Activator. Followed the instructions, 1 week in the primary, 1 in the Secondary, 2 weeks in the bottle. Very good even at that stage. They are going onto week 4 now and the flavor is smoothing out-- the flavor is less "raw" or rough around the edges than it was initially. Overall, a fantastic Belgian. Will brew this one again.February 11, 2011solid brewthis extract kit is excellent. it's one of those beers you serve up to guests to impress them with your brewing prowess._x000D__x000D_be sure to give this beer plenty of time to bottle condition. in my opinion four weeks was much better than two. _x000D__x000D_this beer has been a crowd pleaser from beer snobs to beer newbs. just get it.April 14, 2011
