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

nearbeer (4022) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 16, 2013
12 oz, bb July 29, 2013. Clear amber-copper with a spongy inch of foam. Nose of spicy flower, bubblegum, light citrus. Tastes of toffee apple, peppery citrus zest, fruit bubblegum, toasted pecan, and a bit of woody hops. Faint banana in the long aftertaste. Near-medium body is smoothly carbonated and well balanced. Tastes like a quality ESB with hints of a hefeweizen, and is pretty drinkable.

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.

GarrettB (1169) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 22, 2015
August 9th, 2013 - I am unsure what it means to be part of the Expressionist Collection, but the Blue Moon Rounder is the first (and last, as of April, 2015) to be a member of this exclusive coterie. What qualifications a beer needs to gain membership is unclear, but it must be a relation to the aromatic and flavorful heritage of the Blue Moon derivatives, which tend to run sweet and candied. The aroma smells like burnt caramel and candied sugar, both effusive and sweet, and overwhelmingly so. The taste has a light lemon note, but none of the base or body of a brown ale. Instead I catch lighter notes of hibiscus and orange, with an appealing flavor, and more engagement than the average Blue Moon flavored bottle.

Beerathon (1459) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2015
Has the appearance of a watered down Dr. Pepper (fizzy and light brown, a bit of orange). Has the aroma of grapefruit and sweet malts, reminds me of a radler. The flavor has no resemblence to a Belgian Pale Ale, as I get nothing Belgian about it and donít taste a pale ale at the base. With that said, the flavor is okay. But this beer is far from advertised.

Amberkleurig, grote bellen schuim dat snel vergaat. Droppig geur met restje kaneel van vorige bier (oops). Verder niet vies maar niks speciaals.

Weevo (65) - Indiana, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle, pours hazy brown with light tan head. Carmel and citrus undertones to both the nose and pallet and a little sweetness. Not remarkable but a good drinkable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

What I like is that this beer, and lots of beers these days, although far from great are quite drinkable, not unpleasant, and still offer a few notes of character. Although thin there is some malt and orange and hops and wheat, itís there.

robobeerbelly (73) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 17, 2015
this isnít a terrible beer. but ranks low with me. Itís got a hint of orange and almost a hint of nuttiness about it. a bit more carbonated than i like but not too strong.

hotstuff (4393) - Indiana, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Rated on 5-17-2013 (Bottle-Kroger Marketplace-Fort Wayne, IN) This beerís appearance is a medium sized ivory head with a short retention, orange transparent body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is wheat, orange peel, floral, and spicy. The flavor is wheat, mildly spicy, malt, and light hops. The mouthfeel is smooth and dry. This beer is medium bodied. This beer does not have a lot of flavor or character. It is a semi-refreshing beer.
