3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can with one of those cool pull off tops. Pour is well its still in the can, so no head to speak of but its golden from what I can tell. Aroma tropical fruits, citrus, and fresh hops. Taste is crisp and clean up front, some slight citrus towards the middle, finishes with a mild bitter hop presence, very juicy, very refreshing, very crushable, this is a perfect beer for the +30 weather that I am currently roasting in.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Tap] Pours a bright orange color with a distinct cloudiness to it. Lots of dense white head on top. Sweet orange zest and strong citrus hop in the nose. Tastes include more blood orange rind, high fruit bitterness, floral and citrus hops, light tannins, orange juice and mild wheat malts. Nice body for the style. Lingering grapefruit hoppiness is quite strong.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap, poured into a sampler glass. The aroma is sweet fruits - tangerines specifically, but the aroma/taste of blood oranges isn’t fresh on my mind - with a bit of sugar. It has a soapy white head that sits atop a clear gold body. The head retains fairly well with a good ring and surface layer, and it leaves an average puffy lace on the glass. It’s a medium / medium high sweet beer with a light touch of bitter. The texture is slick with a soft carbonation and a medium body. It finishes dry and crisp with notes of tangerine (or maybe blood orange), grass, and fresh herbs. Perhaps the grass and herbs are really the wheat. The aftertaste is light and mostly reminiscent of citrus peel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours into the glass a translucent golden-yellow with a large foamy head that leaves nice soap lacing. The nose is of orange and lemon. Citrus zest and wheat are among lemon hues and coriander. The finish is of zest and peel. Nice carbonation on this wheat ale. The carbonation is active, but the mouthfeel lively. Great brew!

Yellow gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Sweet wheaty malt start with floral hops on the nose. Flavor is large citrus lemon/orange zest I think and wheat malt. Medum body with good carbonation. Pretty nice as wheats go

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can-to-mouth... RBSG 2014… I’m rating this blind, at the brewery, with no knowledge of the style or previous ratings. It appears to be clear and dirty orange, but I can’t be certain. Can’t smell much of anything other than a light note of orange Creamcicle. Medium to full-bodied with energetic carbonation. The flavor doesn’t talk to me all that much, but there’s plenty of bitterness and orange zest. Goes great with STL barBque!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden with a thin white head. The aroma is potent and full of fruity citrus. It is very big on orange, some grapefruit, caramel, and grassy hops. The taste is tart due to the strong citrus impressions. Orange remains strong. However, it is balanced equally in strength by grapefruit. Some subtle lemon and grassiness is found in here as well. Sharp aftertaste of both orange and grapefruit is very short. Light in body, thin and slick in texture, and softer in carbonation. This is light and rather refreshing. I could honestly see myself drinking one of these with my eggs during brunch. Its good.

Can. Pours a clear light golden color with a small head. Aroma of citrus, some orange and grass. Taste of citrus orange zest bit of malt sweetness and grain. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, clean and refreshing. Not a bad beer for the summer season.

12oz can from bhensonb. Pours light amber with an attractive off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty toffee, light malt and citrus flavor with a smooth bitter finish. Hey, this is a pretty good brew.
