COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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
Hops: Cascade
Our Twist: Orange Peel, Hibiscus

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Aficionados long ago dubbed Blue Moon an impostor cooked up by a megabrewer to exploit the explosive growth of artisanal beer. Pours copper with a white head. Smells of perfume, some sweet hints, earthy. Tastes of some sweet malt, Belgian yeast, some peppery spicy notes on the finish. Decent alternative to Leffe.

Clear dark amber with a thin sticky white head. Aroma is sweet and earthy with some Belgian toffee malt and a touch of dates and cherries, with a wee little touch of bubblegum. Taste brings forward some sweet earthy toffee, hibiscus, a little raisin, and a little earthy bitteness on the end.

Looked good but smelled musty. The aroma alone kind of turned me off so I wasn’t expecting it to taste any better. It did taste better, but not by much. Could taste the caramel and the hops but there was that off taste that I guess was from thier "twist". Nope not for me!

BVery (9574) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle. Brutal. Clear orange pour with a small white head. Stale cardboard hops, no real yeast component, the spice doesn’t work, I don’t get the orange peel, and I’m picking up some of the broth you find in vegetable soup. Fail.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained ivory head with some lacing, over a clear, dark amber (SRM 15) body......nose is heavy malt, biscuit, toast, with light raisin, plum tones.....taste is heavy cereal malt, light malt sweetness, minimal spice, hops represented by very slight bitterness on the finish....mouth feel medium, minimal astringency, carbonation makes for a soft finish. This lacks any yeast spice in both aroma and flavor. While a technically well made beer, it could easily just be called an Amber without aiming at Belgian anything or implying a Pale Ale. The Cascade, Hibiscus and orange were used with a light hand in this bottle. It could use a more assertive yeast and a larger helping of hops. BJCP 7/3/14/4/6

Ron (3576) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 21, 2013
I stand corrected. At Mike and Osra’s party, they had a beer avail. I have not had before. Of the 8 or more diff. 12 pks they had avail. they had Blue Moon Var pk. (I did not try the new fruit one) Pours brownish head, nice dark amber body. Aromas of some bread, caramel and chocolate. Taste is sweet and slightly bitter. Some mild flavors of hops are presented.

sawbuck (633) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Aroma of bad fruit...slight hops. Weak. First taste is bitter hops with sweet malt. Chocolate in the finish and the bitterness ends well.

Dark brown transparent color. Watery carbonated and sweet with a malty boring skunky aftertaste.
