12 oz. bottle at home. Pours orange/amber. Aroma of malt, caramel. Taste, a little bitter for me. Not a favorite.

12FL OZ ($14.99 12pack) was a pretty good beer, best in the box of 6 flvors. gets a heavy rating pan by the critics but if you encounter this box, drink this and the farmhouse red and you’ll be oak.

Better than most of their beers. Slight nutty aroma masks the pale malt used in most Coors products. Pretty amber color with a lot of foam. Light palate and carbonated. Slight roasted character with a clean finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from 12 oz. Amber, almost no head. Raisins and other dark fruit, pears, and malt in aroma. Taste is of the same, but more watery than of most other Belgians.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear pale to medium amber with one finger of loose light tan head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, patchy lacing. (3/5) Nose is caramel malt, orange peel, floral. (5/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (5/10) Medium body, lively carbonation, sweetish medium duration finish. (3/5)
Worst. BPA. Ever. OK, fine, it’s a bit past its best before, but still. This is another one from the Expressionist series that is perfectly fine (well, OK, serviceable) on its own merits, but bears little or no resemblance to the style it’s claiming to be. Only the faintest hints of Belgian style to this, and certainly not crisp and dry the way I like BPA’s to be. Better than a macro lager, if not by much. (10/20)

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a big malt aroma with some brad tossed in.
Appearance- Pours an amber color with a small white head
Taste- Has a pretty good malt flavor with a small addition of hops, not basd
Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation.
Overall- A pretty solid beer from Blue Moon, worth a try.

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.
