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 (3777) - 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.

Pours a mostly clear dark amber color. Tastes fairly clean and fresh, and doesnít have a cloying yeasty note, which was nice. OK.

radagast83 (4753) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle, from mixed-pack. Poured a hazy, bubbly copper color with a foamy white head. Aroma was light pale malts, sweetness, lots of carbonation. Flavor was sweet malt notes, thatís about it. Nothing offensive. A little boring. Would probably only drink again if someone bought one of these box sets.

Awktoberfest (308) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Not much going on hear. Like a cheerleader that cheers from inside a room. It's all just muted. There is no pepiness.. No life. No hops. No aroma. So I found it sadly to be a let down. A flavor flop. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks to Gentiles owner. Pretty well balanced. Good carb and bod. Yeasty aroma with grain. Similar taste. Like blue moon without spices

Bork (241) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 5, 2014
High on drinkability but extremely low on aromas and flavors. Come to think of it, thatís the philosophy of the dinosaur brewers.

Vcoggins (53) - Cypress, Texas, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Pours a copper / amber color with a slightly off white head. Aroma is faint when cold but as it warms up the smell is of wet grains and light floral undertones. The taste was lightly sweet malts. Mouth feel is thin. Not a bad beer but nothing outstanding.

"somehow forgot to rate this one...had to dig a little for the notes. not bad for blue moon. wither they didnít f it up, or i just dig the style. probably a little of each. still average at best, for a cool style, but something i donít mind drinking. the bitterness from the hops nicely offsets the slightly muddled malt and spice(?)."

12 oz bottle. Reddish amber with a thick frothy off-white head. Aroma is soft malts, flowers, fall spices. Caramel, corn syrup, spice, oranges.

Compared to other Blue Moon brews, I was pleasantly surprised with this one. The taste of hibiscus and sweetness draws this into a great balanced Pale Ale, despite its lack of hop. Still, though, I wouldnít trust Blue Moon to know what to do with hops if they had any so itís a good beer despite the ill-fitting name.
