Little nervous about trying this Colorado Beer from Blue Moon Brewing. Blue Moon is part of the Miller/Coors Beer family and calls Golden, CO home. Blue Moon is actually part of Tenth and Blake Beer Company which is the parent company’s craft and import division. Lots of smaller breweries have criticized Blue Moon for not truly being a craft brewery. Their signature Blue Moon beer has grabbed a large share of the craft beer consumed in America and that might be a part of the criticism.
In fairness I like Blue Moon and I do not let the fact it is not from a small brewery become a detraction for me. I also do not particular like saison style beers but I have had some exceptions. This saison is not terrible and I would rate it fair. It contains 5.8% ABV and should not be confused with Tank 7-Farmhouse Ale a beer I profiled on March 20
