Bottles from Smith’s, Capone’s, and Whole Foods Plymouth Meeting. Pours hazy gold with off-white head. Nose is orange zest, wheaty pale malt, hopcitrus. Tastes crisp, hopcitric, complex, with some spice and more citrus in the finish.

Can. Aroma is orang hoppy citrus. Taste is bitter orange hoppy. Not bad and low alcohol for beer type.

Can. Very pale, very clear dandelion yellow hue with a sudsy white cap. The aroma’s citrus-forward, packed full of tangerine zest and a hint of creamy wheat and dried brioche. There’s less separation between these notes in the flavor; everything melds into a package of bitter orange peel and crackers. The finish is quite dry, with lingering hop/citrus bite. Compact.

can shared that poured a hazy yellow color initial aroma was orange, orange peel or zest. any which way it was good. nice wheat backbone and with the orange almost makes it a wit without the spice. but this is a solid summer beer, good flavor and very drinkable.

JPDIPSO (5373) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Lightly hazed, light straw color with a diminished white head. Light wheat, and some catty/tomato scents. Slightly dated can, but really, this went downhill really quickly. Flavors match scents with light fruit and cooked vegetables. Pineapple, unripe citrus, hickory nut hulls, cactus juice, etc. Nope, not getting it.

I should have known better. Can that says best by 11/23/15, but Jakebra wants me to crush it. Well-oxidized, but not as bad as I anticipated. Still get some fruity esters over the cardboard. Drank it quickly.

monkeychugg55 (1010) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Hazy yellow-orange with a medium sized head. The aroma is citrusy orange with caramel malt and some spicy, herbal hop notes. The flavor is smooth and a bit sweet upfront, with some nice citrusy orange notes all the way through. Pretty nice.

j12601 (9286) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 10, 2015
Can at the booth during Boston Comic Con. Fairly clear gold with a thin white head. Soft resinous hops, a bit of malt behind it, citrus. Medium bodied, fruity and a touch sweet, malt comes through. Malt and resinous hops into the finish, malt and toast, light bitterness.

kevinator (1817) - The Colony, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2015
Pretty good for a style that can tend towards boring. Aroma of citrus, particularly pineapple and orange. Nice copper and ginger color. Light and crisp palate. Flavors were hints of wheat, citrus hops and a slight harshness from the blood orange. Unique.

guzzler67 (1642) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 8, 2015
Cloudy gold appearance with an average size, short lived, white head that left modest lacing. Aroma is packed with citrus, mostly orange, along side pitted fruit. Flavor is vibrant to a point then looses its punch as the wheat and sweet malts dull the taste buds. Some salvation in the aftertaste as herbal, spicy hops show up. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel and a lingering finish.

12 oz can from a friend. Big citrus and orange peel aroma with light bready malts and toasted grains. Zesty and refreshing flavor that adds some grassy, herbal and floral notes. Pretty tasty wheat ale overall.
