De color anaranjado, con una capa de espuma suave. Aroma suave a naranja que deja paso a maltas. Ligera de cuerpo y carbonatación media. En boca dulce y cítrica con base maltosa. Final ligeramente seco y amargo. Deliciosa!

blankboy (7172) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2016
[Can (16oz)] Pours a hazy, bubbly golden-orange with an average size lasting fluffy white head. Slightly mild but pleasant aroma of various citrus fruit followed by bready malt and light hops. Fruity, hoppy flavour backed by bready malt and a moderate+ bitter finish. Medium bodied. Really good and enjoyable.

Draft to 4 oz taster at Dutch’s from notes. Pours a clear golden amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have big citrus, blood orange character, herbal hops, pale malt, decent bitterness to the finish, decent enough but I wouldn’t seek this out again.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2016 Pours an orange amber with white head. Medium body. Lots of malts, initial huge sweet citrus taste then a light hop flavor. Finishes bitter with lots of citrus.

Christpuncher (2733) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2016
I'd have to say the best lager I have. Blood orange flavor dominates the bitter lager taste. Finished dry and citruscy. Pours cloudy orange with a thin cream head. Had at home.

Pours a reddish orange color with a small bubbly head. Notes of berries, sweat, and sweetbreads. Not really a fan.

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber color, one-finger white head, a curtain of lace. Aroma of hops and light malt. Taste is malt with orange and grass that becomes more bitter on the swallow, but never gives up the tart citrus. A refreshing brew, full-bodied and satisfying.

Patrickctenchi (5944) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Draft: Pours clear, dark amber with a small white head. Blood orange scent. Malty, orange pulp taste.....nice, deep orange-peel bitter. Almost salty-feeling at finish. Very good.

Watching the artist sketch out this beer’s teaser on the chalkboard sold me more than the name. A fruity vibe makes this stand out as the most sessionable of that day’s drafts. If I would had not purchased about a half dozen other bottles for tasting earlier that day I might have tried to take some home. With Mikkeller’s recent announcements maybe it will not be long before this comes back.

Aroma / Appearance - A bronze semitransparent core glimmers as wisps of white head swirl atop like clouds blown across the sky in a strong breeze. Blood oranges, citrus, and other fruitiness tether themselves to a malty core that binds the whole profile together.

Flavor / Palate - Pulped blood oranges remind me of drinking fresh squeezed orange juice paired with a bowl of Wheaties. The smooth transition carries all the way to a long lasting finish. The light bitterness tickles the throat without being harsh. I’d have no problems downing a full pint of this.
