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

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

12oz bottle picked up at the state store
Pours clear dark golden with a medium sized off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel, spicy and citrus. Flavors of malts, floral (hibiscus?), wheat and citrus
It was OK, but I wouldnít order another.

Now this wasnít a bad beer. I donít expect much from them, but this was a tasty beer. Calling a Belgian style pale should be illegal however. Itís obvious they print the labels before the beer is made because this beer is a light brown and nowhere near pale. Nor is the taste anywhere near Belgian. Aroma was nice. Roasted caramel malt with subtle hints of orange and tree bark. Pour was a dark gold/light brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was big and malty but not sweet. Orange peel and caramel are the big flavors with not much else. Good flavor for such a low ABV. Decent carbonation. One of the better of the Blue Moon shitty beers.

Bottle. Taste is caramel, malt, smoke, grain and hay. Solid session beer, donít really understand the low rating.

stoutchap (400) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Hey for blue moon its not too bad. Neutral nose, some malt and mild hopping. If tasted blindly you probably wouldnít say it is a belgian but it isnít offensive in any way and is drinkable.

Ericular (569) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Pours a orangeish light brown with quickly fading head and not much lacing. Aroma is light with citrus, floral, and malt. Taste is sweet, bready, banana, then drying into a light tart bitterness.

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 donít notice the hibiscus or orange peel...itís not overdone, nor is there an unpleasant sourness from the hibiscus. This is the first beer other than Blue Moonís 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.
