In the 1940s, 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

Pour light brown with lacing white head. Aroma is not strong of anything but a bit of caramel and a bit of malt. Taste is the defining quality. Sweet easy finish decent beer cheap

Location: 12 oz bottle from Giannone, 9/213

Aroma: The nose is on the light side, some caramel malts, spice notes, bread, and citrus
Appearance: A clear caramel-amber color with a small froth of beige head and decent lace
Flavor: The flavor is a little sweet, malty, some mild hops, and a bready finish
Palate: The body of this one is medium, and it has an okay, but not great, mouthfeel
Overall Impression: For a Blue Moon beer, this isnt that bad. So, thats about the nicest thing I could think of to say about this one... Anyway, this was an okay, forgettable beer.

Reid (2474) - Salem, Oregon, USA - SEP 2, 2013
12 oz beer from a sixer bought from Fred Meyer in Salem $6.99 Clear brown,light brown,beer with a small cream colored head.. Smells of bread pudding,with vanilla a little cream of corn..not very Belgian but not unpleasant. Taste is similar to the aroma but has an acrid / pure alcohol taste that appears now and again,it is NOT pleasant., some sweet candy sugar in the end. Palate unfortunately is cloying and makes for a long period of sipping to finish one 12 oz glass. Overall horribly disappointing. Nice laberl shame about the beer.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Pours a copper color with a thin off-white head. Nose is of malt and yeast. Fairly creamy on the palate, the taste is a nice balance of grains and breads with a hops kick on the finish. A well rounded" beer that pairs well with nuts or chips.

Ill keep this short. This is mainly because this beer is fair, at best. Light pour with little head that dissipates quickly, clear light amber color, floral and nutty notes on the nose, dry belgian-ISH flavor with some nuts, a little orange peel on the palate. I wouldnt turn this beer down at a table, but it definitely isnt my favorite and IMHO, doesnt qualify for the class that I deem one of my favorites.
