Rounder Belgian Pale Ale is an amber- colored brew with an aroma that is biscuit- like with some spice and citrus. The foam looks nice at first, but it doesn’t last long and leaves minimal lacing. The body of the beer is clear and well- filtered.
As for the taste it is very much on the sweet side with flavors of citrus, mainly orange, with caramel, toffee, and other sweet malts dominating. There is an ever-so-brief bitter moment in the finish, but it doesn’t last for long.
This beer is actually a little more full bodied than I first expected it to be, and I have to give Blue Moon credit for at least making the product fuller and richer than the typical macro brew. But the one problem I have with this beer is its sweetness level. It is far sweeter than I prefer and what little bitterness exists is squashed quickly by the taste of sweet malt. It isn’t much like the typical Belgian brew either and has little or none of the yeasty goodness common to this style.
Overall, this is an acceptable beer, but not by much. I can’t handle the sweetness for very long, but I know some people who will enjoy it for that same reason. Just keep that in mind if you try it- if balance is your preference, it won’t measure up, but if you like the taste of malt sugars, you may fall in love.
