This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a small sized head of foamy with a frothy top bubbles that were and left behind a softly carbonated transparent dark orange colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was bready yeasty and wheat. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a lingering aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of wood wheat breads hops and malt. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

I absolutely loved this beer. The hibiscus notes were just prominent enough to draw a balance with the hoppy floral notes. It was sweet and yet tart, and maintained a beautiful color throughout.

Blue Moon Rounder has a thick, off-white head, a clear, bubbly, amber appearance, a moderate lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is rather faint, but one can pick up sweet, brown bread and maybe some slight spice or citrus. Flavor is of spicy, sweet, brown bread crust, citrus, some sort of spice, and sugar. Mouthfeel is medium, and Blue Moon Rounder finishes wet, refreshing, mellow, and easy drinking. Overall, this is an excellent offering. RJT

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear dark amber with a thin sticky white head. Aroma is sweet and earthy with some Belgian toffee malt and a touch of dates and cherries, with a wee little touch of bubblegum. Taste brings forward some sweet earthy toffee, hibiscus, a little raisin, and a little earthy bitteness on the end.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear reddish amber, almost mahogany, with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled light tan head. Malty aroma has caramel and horehound undertones. Crisp, malty flavor is rounded out by caramel, fruity and horehound notes. Rather tasty. Smooth texture has a fine, subtle fizz.

Not bad, amber/copper color, modest head. Nose was caramelized malts and a light bit of phenol, touches of raisin, banana, and clove. Medium palate, a lot of carbonation, easy drinking.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Firestone restaurant pint glass
From: Target in Mission Valley (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $15.99 for the Brewmaster’s Seasonal Sampler variety 12-pack
Purchased: April 17, 2013
Consumed: April 19, 2013
Poured a caramel copper color with two fingers of khaki white head. Sporadic foamy lacing on the sides. Good retention all the way down.
Definitely malt heavy on the sniff. Got lemon grass, honey, caramel, bread and cereal. Some lingering citrus hops (orange peel) after the forward malts. A little bit of iced tea as well.
Tasted pretty close to the nose. Really got that sugary iced tea taste more than anything else. Also lemon grass, honey, bread, faint caramel, orange peel and some rye.
Medium body. Creamy-to-sticky texture. Average-to-lively (above average) carbonation. Smooth, refreshing finish.
Very good Belgian Pale Ale. I’ve been pleasantly surprised with this Blue Moon variety 12-pack. I’d have this again for sure.
