In the 1940’s, Belgian-Style Pale Ales grew in popularity and were ordered by the round due to their balanced taste. Rounder, our expression of this sessionable style, is crafted with hibiscus and orange peel for a hint of spiciness and touch of wheat for a smoother, rounder taste.

Malts: Pale, Imported Caramel, Imported Light Caramel, White Wheat

The label says "Belgian Style Pale" and I guess that’s supposed to mean Belgian style pale ale. It doesn’t remind me too much of the real Belgian Pale Ales I’ve had, nor some of the better efforts to copy the style from other countries. Still, it’s an ok beer, just not too remarkable. Poured it slightly warm with a huge, foamy, frothy, thick, cream-colored head that soon settles and good lace. Color is a clear orange amber with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is bark, old wood, cardboard, with a hint of malt and spice. Flavor’s like nose, more intense, malt really comes out, tang of course, bit of bitter and some sweet along with some medicinal. Body is big and full but at first has a powerful warming despite its strength, medicinal component leaves an unpleasant lingering bitterness. Finish is as stated, like flavor, and would be much better with popcorn or something to cancel the off flavors.

Interesting enough the description is spot on. Well rounded. Only area that falls behind is the aroma.

Really nice clear copper pour an off white head and decent lacing. Aroma is faint grain and caramel. Taste is grainy with some faint caramel and bit tart. Light body that finishes a little dry.

Poured into tumbler. Has a medium copper boarding more to the red spectrum. Thin white head which dissipated quickly. Taste was rather flat with to much carbonation with a little funk on the side. Blue Moon usually adds a little spice to their beer, but I had a hard time tasting them. I bought the Expressionist Collection and was really wanting to enjoy this beer. needless to say, I’m a little disappointed in it.

Bottle. Nice-looking pour, reddish amber, shiny and inviting. The thin head gives up quickly though. There’s a light little yeasty aroma, but this drinks pretty even-keeled overall. There’s a hint of a little fall-like funk, but not enough to scare away the casual beer drinker. Clean. Average. (#5285, 10/13/2013)

A surprising Belgian pale ale, which is not exactly pale. Beautiful roasted malty aroma with bread notes. Yum. I could drink this sessional all day.

Light amber orange with a disappearing off white head. The aroma is sweet with dark fruit. The flavor is harsh and rather bitter with some solvent, berries, caramel and alcohol. Sweet fruity finish.

12oz bottle poured into a tumbler. Clear amber color with a small tan head. Bready nose, caramel, sweet cornflakes, faint floral notes. Sweet malt, caramel, some cake, lo bitterness. Light-med body, not very crisp, short finish and a bit boring. So so.
