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

I was surprised by how much I liked this one. Pleasantly dry, and the dryness seems to clear out any sweetness in the beer, leading to a clean, refreshing finish. Does not taste much at all like a belgian ale...slightly hoppy and seems even to hint at roast. I don’t notice the hibiscus or orange peel...it’s not overdone, nor is there an unpleasant sourness from the hibiscus. This is the first beer other than Blue Moon’s regular Belgian White that I actually preferred. I do not think it resembles the original much at all; it was more of its own thing.

Better than a bud, I guess. Next to no real character, texture, smell or interest to this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kinda watery but still full of lots of flabvours. Very belgian but not with that touch of the beer country.

Clear amber pour with an average head that rapidly diminishes. Lacing retention is poor. Nose is light but has citrus and caramel notes. Light medium bodied with a normal carbonation level that produces some effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is nice and well balanced. It begins with a light citrus note that flows into an equally light caramel sweetness. The finish is somewhat crisp, but has a lingering spiciness that is nice. A solid session/ lawnmower beer.

Aroma of grass, dough, and herbs. Some caramel sweetness in the taste. More "Belgian" than the original Blue Moon I guess.

Best blue moon beer i tried so far. Great mix of caramel, spices, malt and hops in aroma. Spicy flavour with bittersweet aftertaste

Aroma is bread dough and floral, herbal hops. Flavor has sharp hops with a bready malt profile. Actually very good and interesting. Light body, crisp co2. Easy drinking with some nice flavors.

snoworsummer (2093) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle. Tastes malty, bready, like toast and light fruity banana. Light/Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet, malty grains.
