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

Pitiful beer, absolute joke. Watery throughout, very mild carbonation, near diacetyl

@ Jungle Jims / Eastgate OH - Clear dark amber, 1/2" persistent head, bands of lace. Taste is semi-sweet caramel malt that moves without comment through the palate to a smooth fade in the finish. This is no more a Belgian than a Newcastle Brown. It is minor, but drinkable, smooth, but lifeless. I can deal with it, but don’t know why I’d want to.

Pours Amber in color with thin white head. Very little in the way of aroma. Flavors of orange and spice.

Mora2000 (5664) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Amber pour with a white head. The aroma has some honey and caramel notes, as well as some floral character. The flavor is very similar. I get some caramel and toffee notes as well as some flowers, light orange peel, honey and brown sugar. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

mansquito (3346) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 31, 2013
From a bodega: Pours reddish copper with a white head. Aroma is caramel malt and some hop; where the yeast. Me not know. Anyway, there some sweetness. Light hoppiness. Not much Belgian. Much mediocre. Not terrible.

Luvystypotables (618) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2013
No aroma, no head, amber colour, not much taste but with a sour finish. All in all drinkable but not great.

subsonic (82) - Pataskala, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2013
"Copper colored body, the head is a thin ringlet, no lace left behind. Some malts in the nose and not much else. Mouthfeel is full a tiny bit sticky. Flavor is all bready malts, a touch of sweetness and caramel. No real traces of hops or any Belgian yeasts."

Very mild, easy to drink and refreshing. Subtle citrus aroma and a sweet flavor with a hint of spice. Thin body. Pretty good overall.

Kinz (3277) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 24, 2013
From random winter sample pack the spouse picked up because all the other beers where she was at at the time were totally awful. Medium clear copper, virtually no head. Aroma is slight peppery spice, caramel, and a bit of floral hop. Flavor is quite floral up front, moving to a sweet caramel and toffee finish with a lingering bitterness on the end. Can’t say that I liked this, but it wasn’t a bad beer - just not to my personal taste. You could have told me that this came from any number of craft brewers and I would have totally believed it.
