2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Orange red with a small white head that is mostly diminishing. Slightly spicy black pepper aroma atop caramel and moderate toffee. There is blink-and-you’ll-miss-it hibiscus flower in there, but it is quickly covered by the sweet malts. Slightly spicy with notes of graham cracker, malted milk, slightly sour straw. Not terrible, but definitely mediocre.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 don’t taste a pale ale at the base. With that said, the flavor is okay. But this beer is far from advertised.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amberkleurig, grote bellen schuim dat snel vergaat. Droppig geur met restje kaneel van vorige bier (oops). Verder niet vies maar niks speciaals.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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, it’s there.

this isn’t a terrible beer. but ranks low with me. It’s got a hint of orange and almost a hint of nuttiness about it. a bit more carbonated than i like but not too strong.
