3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
August 9th, 2013 - I am unsure what it means to be part of the Expressionist Collection, but the Blue Moon Rounder is the first (and last, as of April, 2015) to be a member of this exclusive coterie. What qualifications a beer needs to gain membership is unclear, but it must be a relation to the aromatic and flavorful heritage of the Blue Moon derivatives, which tend to run sweet and candied. The aroma smells like burnt caramel and candied sugar, both effusive and sweet, and overwhelmingly so. The taste has a light lemon note, but none of the base or body of a brown ale. Instead I catch lighter notes of hibiscus and orange, with an appealing flavor, and more engagement than the average Blue Moon flavored bottle.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Has the appearance of a watered down Dr. Pepper (fizzy and light brown, a bit of orange). Has the aroma of grapefruit and sweet malts, reminds me of a radler. The flavor has no resemblence to a Belgian Pale Ale, as I get nothing Belgian about it and donít taste a pale ale at the base. With that said, the flavor is okay. But this beer is far from advertised.

Amberkleurig, grote bellen schuim dat snel vergaat. Droppig geur met restje kaneel van vorige bier (oops). Verder niet vies maar niks speciaals.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, pours hazy brown with light tan head. Carmel and citrus undertones to both the nose and pallet and a little sweetness. Not remarkable but a good drinkable beer.

What I like is that this beer, and lots of beers these days, although far from great are quite drinkable, not unpleasant, and still offer a few notes of character. Although thin there is some malt and orange and hops and wheat, itís there.

this isnít a terrible beer. but ranks low with me. Itís got a hint of orange and almost a hint of nuttiness about it. a bit more carbonated than i like but not too strong.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rated on 5-17-2013 (Bottle-Kroger Marketplace-Fort Wayne, IN) This beerís appearance is a medium sized ivory head with a short retention, orange transparent body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is wheat, orange peel, floral, and spicy. The flavor is wheat, mildly spicy, malt, and light hops. The mouthfeel is smooth and dry. This beer is medium bodied. This beer does not have a lot of flavor or character. It is a semi-refreshing beer.

12/11/14. Random 12oz bottle from my dadís fridge. I was quite surprised I hadnít had this already. Amber pour with a small khaki head, mild lacing. Plain aroma, faint yeast, floral, orange, chalky, perfume. Slightly better flavor, but much the same. Floral, earthy, a little chalky, doughy. Meh.

Pours clear amber with a thin fading head. Nose is noticeably vacant for an IPA. Thin sweet and not too much else. Donít get me wrong, beats a bud... But ...
