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

A surprising Belgian pale ale, which is not exactly pale. Beautiful roasted malty aroma with bread notes. Yum. I could drink this sessional all day.

This is a fantastic beer. It has a nice finish and a great dark color. Probably the best Blue Moon variety. Is quite smooth.

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

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.

Best blue moon beer i tried so far. Great mix of caramel, spices, malt and hops in aroma. Spicy flavour with bittersweet aftertaste

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 don’t notice the hibiscus or orange peel...it’s not overdone, nor is there an unpleasant sourness from the hibiscus. This is the first beer other than Blue Moon’s 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.
