But I gotta type something, dammit! The next great American novel isn't coming from this lame-brain, so I guess I will have to go with this latest Blue Moon release: Winter Abbey Ale. Sigh. Abbey ale my ass. Throw some Belgian candy sugar in a beer and it becomes a Belgian classic, I guess. To be fair, it is a new recipe this year, and I haven't tried it yet. But it stays at the same 5.6% ABV as previous years. Coors folks say it "Conjures up images of a snowy cabin in the woods". To me, it conjures up being stuck at a crackhead motel in Bayonne, NJ during a snowstorm and this being the best choice of beers available at the ShopRite down the street. And in that situation, I wouldn't have a problem with the $7.99 price tag. I'm sure the beer would be just fine. Keep this around to wow friends who don't know better and tell them you are sharing some "Belgian Abbey Ale" with them.
