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

Dacrza (450) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2013
DATE TASTED: August 4, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Kisatskyís Tavern pint... OCCASION: convincing wife Shan that "Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives" is a mockumentary, not a documentary ... APPEARANCE: nice, lively orange-amber body; creamy white head that settles slowly and laces surprisingly well!... AROMA: caramel malts "round" the fragrant flower pot hops with some doughier, breadier elements--the citrus is subdued by an oddly malty punch... PALATE: medium-bodied, oily, antagonistic in its presence--mildly sessionable, if not for its Blue Moon calling card funked up aftertaste...TASTE: mild coriander sits amid malts that belie this beerís objective; mostly caramel and a 40 oz. malt profile that kills the enjoyability for the drinker.... OVERALL: another "miss" from the Blue Moon Expressionist Collection, though not to the extreme of the Blackberry Wit or the Agave--still, like finding out Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives" is not real, one feels this Belgian pale really is a distant attempt of the original...

Bottle. Pours copper amber color, decent head and carbonation. Malty bread aroma. Smooth and silky going down. Bread like taste with a bitter aftertaste.

Chudwick (1791) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - APR 4, 2014
Yay party beer, OK Iím just ticking now; I am not looking forward to this. Floral cardboard. Grass and citrus peels of sorts. Tick complete. Never again unless I run out of beer tomorrow night when UK plays in the Final Four.

BLADT (224) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 29, 2014
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.

monk191 (727) - California, USA - MAR 28, 2014
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.
