COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the 1940ís, 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

From bottle. Clear copper in glass. Thin white head. Very woody nose. Steeped tea. Wort. Taste is one dimensional: tea with hint of orange. Itís a decent dimension, but beer could really use some more flavors. Has the feel of aspartame on the tongue.

Most blue moon beers taste pretty similar, and this is ok exception. Pours a light brown with a thin tan head. Smells like a bit of nuts, with beer. Taste is a. It like Newcastle, some brown, with some hops in the finish. Had in the bottle.

Bottle. Bland and kinda flavor-less. I was expecting something a little better with the whole "Belgian-style" moniker, but meh.

This is a nice ale, with a delicate malt flavor and significant hops. Very light in color, with an average head. It is a good thirst quencher.

See, hereís the the deal. My boss is pretty cool, and he knows Iím into beer. But he doesnít really know anything about beer (You see where this is going, right?). So, as a reward for some recent work, he bought me a case...of Blue Moon. Now, Iím gonna tick íem (because thatís what I do), but they really are kind of ...bland? This is the second one Iíve tried that doesnít really have much character. At any rate, I will be trying a bunch of these...

Mild tea nose.Clear copper, thick yellow head. Tea and aspartame, somewhat cloying. Some grass and orange notes. Exactly what is Belgian about this? Not very good.

This is a fantastic beer. It has a nice finish and a great dark color. Probably the best Blue Moon variety. Is quite smooth.

3/11/2014. From bottle. Amber color with a white head. Malty and hoppy aromas. Flavors a little bit too buttery caramel for my taste. Nice spicy notes and hops are there.

I shared this with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. I have to admit I was expecting something different from something called a Belgian-Style Pale. But this looked, smelled ,and tasted more like an amber. Amber in color with q small white head and light lacing.. Nose of floral hops. Medium in body. Flavors shows light fruit. Some bitterness. Gets better as it warms.
