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 do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Red Amber color, foam head. Lots of carbonation. Malt aroma. Caramel malt taste with a barely noticeable touch of floral hops on the aftertaste. Sticky mouthfeel.

Nice amber appearance, mild smell doesn’t taste like much but cheaper knock off. Not sure of the taste except it isn’t great, lit going on without a pale taste dominating

12 oz. bottle at home. Pours orange/amber. Aroma of malt, caramel. Taste, a little bitter for me. Not a favorite.

12FL OZ ($14.99 12pack) was a pretty good beer, best in the box of 6 flvors. gets a heavy rating pan by the critics but if you encounter this box, drink this and the farmhouse red and you’ll be oak.

Better than most of their beers. Slight nutty aroma masks the pale malt used in most Coors products. Pretty amber color with a lot of foam. Light palate and carbonated. Slight roasted character with a clean finish.

Pour from 12 oz. Amber, almost no head. Raisins and other dark fruit, pears, and malt in aroma. Taste is of the same, but more watery than of most other Belgians.

UXO (1295) - CANADA - JUN 7, 2015
Pours clear pale to medium amber with one finger of loose light tan head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, patchy lacing. (3/5) Nose is caramel malt, orange peel, floral. (5/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (5/10) Medium body, lively carbonation, sweetish medium duration finish. (3/5) Worst. BPA. Ever. OK, fine, it’s a bit past its best before, but still. This is another one from the Expressionist series that is perfectly fine (well, OK, serviceable) on its own merits, but bears little or no resemblance to the style it’s claiming to be. Only the faintest hints of Belgian style to this, and certainly not crisp and dry the way I like BPA’s to be. Better than a macro lager, if not by much. (10/20)

Rated based on notes taken 5 May 2012 -- It’s ok. Not great. Won’t seek this beer out to have again.

Bottle. Pours a dark color color with a fair head. Aroma of citrus, light fruit and hint of malt sweetness. Taste of malt sweetness and light fruit. Mold bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Moderate body, smooth and flavorful. Easy drinker. Much better than expected.
