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

Pours clear copper with a thin off-white head. Adequately beery without being all that interesting.

kramer (5827) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear reddish amber body with a small fizzy off-white head that fell to a thin film. The nose is pretty light, a little bit of wheat, light spice, a touch of bready malt. The flavor is pretty bland and boring with just a light sweetness and some minimal spiciness. Some caramel and a bit of orange peel on the finish. Lighter bodied with a bit of clinginess on the back end and fizzy prickly carbonation. No real problems with this one, it’s just a little too bland and boring. Some of these Blue Moon beers might be decent if they weren’t filtered completely.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped: SEP3013-FO5100615. The pour is reddish amber with a moderate off-white head that lingers a little while but eventually goes away. Caramel malts and Belgian candied sugars on the nose that is for certain. Hops in the distant background. The body is creamy and medium. The taste is very sweet almost to the extreme. It tastes like a sweeter variation on their Winter Abbey Ale.

Bottle poured a clear reddish amber with a small lating creamy amber head. Aromas of bread, light carmel and light floral notes. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, spice and light hibiscus with a smooth lingering spiced finish.

Finhead (1621) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Clear, amber-brown pour with a small, white head. The aroma has sweet bread, caramel, and light, earthy hops. It has a light, crisp texture with lively carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with a slightly sweet finish.

arminjewell (9256) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear dark orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of some metal, slight cardboard and grass notes, hints of orange, slight caramel. Taste is a mix of orange, slight metal, cardboard, hints of grass, earth, slight spice, caramel, finishing slightly metallic again, hints of bitter and dry. Once was plenty.

RSRIZZO (1949) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle at Drink Beer.. Help People tasting party. Color is an orange gold with good carbonation and a nice head. Aroma is a mild malt scent with a touch of yeast in the back. It has a medium body and a crisp mouth feel. Flavor comes across sweet with caramel, a faint banana and yeast note. In the after taste the sweet lingers on a bit. Overall its OK, drinkable but not worth seeking out.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2013 Just good enough to introduce us to Americanized Belgium style beer. Red light copper color, sweet caramel orange smell, light sweet taste with balanced smoothness, but lack of complex offered from those Belgium authentic, I still like this better than original blue moon.
