Actually, I heard an interview with the guy at the Coors experimental brewery that developed blue moon...they use regular old ale yeast (WLP001, 1056, etc.). They add the spice with orange and other crap.
Anyway, I agree with your point, Belgian beers and Belgian style beers have a very different taste that some people don't care for. I can drink a Belgain and say "Yup that's Belgian," but I would prefer a nice hefe or Kolsch any day.
