COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Contact High is a hoppy wheat ale we dry hopped with blood orange zest. Contact high pours a bright orange hue with a big citrus aroma. A very refreshing beer!! Think of a beermosa with only beer!

Winter Beer Fest, Philly: Pours golden. Aroma is weed, juicy orange, and some more tropical fruit. Taste is much the same. The weed is pretty strong in this one (contact high methinks). Nice and easy. I liked this.

12 oz. can, $1.99 at Binny’s, bought in July. A nice zesty orange smell when opened, which stays around as I pour. Kicks up foams with a hint of lemon to it as well. Light gold color, just a touch of haze, big bubbly head. That citrus flavor is too much for a German hefeweizen, but its a good American Wheat with a bog but not overdone note of fruit. Goes down well and quickly.

I like the can this comes in. You open the tab and the can becomes a cup. I had to pour into a pint glass so I can rate the appearance. Yellowish hue with a not too appealing white head. Watery palate. Taste isn’t too bad. I get the orange taste balanced with the coriander.

22 oz Bomber. Tasted on 11/2/14. Bottle courtesy of Chae. Pours to a fairly clear medium golden color with a thin white head. The aroma had some citrus, a little hop & not much from the wheat. The taste was pretty well balanced & you definitely got the orange zest on the back end. Wasn't really a true wheat for me but was an ok beer overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz can. Pours a hazy tellow color with a big sudsy white head that has decent retention. The aroma is rather mild and understated with light traces trace of lemons and tangerines. The taste, like the aroma, is very mild--not much going on here taste wise--perhaps mild grapefruit present. The palate is thinner than I would prefer and the carbonation is soft. Short and dry. overall: meh. Might make a good summer lawnmower beer.

Pours more yellow than " bright orange" with fluffy 3 finger white head. Random bits of lace. Orange zest and wheat aroma with flavor the same. Interesting mix of flavors. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Refreshing, would be a great summertime beer.

8/IX/14 - 1Pt. 6Fl. Oz. bottle @ home - BB or bottle date: V/21/14 (2014-972) Thanks to Fem for the bottle!

Clear bright orange beer, small aery to creamy head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: sweet, floral, honey, orange peel, bit sugary, marzipan. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: lots of orange peel, some citrus, bit sweet, pretty hoppy, floral, spicy touch. Aftertaste: orange lemonade, sweet impression although fairly bitter, citric hops, bit floral, way too much orange peel. No balance at all.

Bomber. middle of the road hoppy ale. Citrius and floral hops. Light bitterness. Pretty mild in all the flavors. Not as much of a wheaty aftertaste as I was expecting.

Very nice citrius nose, good wheat base with a definate orange zest influence. Quite quaffable, could be consumed copiously in the right weather.
