Bomber from Liar’s club. Poured clear and golden orange with a really fresh fruit nose. Smooth citrus and light malt with nice mouthfeel. A very good afternoon refresher, perfect pairing with my cajon fries and french dip~

cpetrone84 (1447) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2012
pour is transparent golden orange with a creamy white head and some large bubbles. Nose is heavy pilsner grain, lightly toasted, with light notes of citric orange and a honey tinge underneath. Taste is more balanced, the honey gives it a creamy body and adds gently to the toasted grain. Also some caramel malt notes, sweet but well attenuated, with citrus notes and a bit of herbal hops. Very interesting beer, nicely balanced and well done.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 2, 2005
Pours a deep golden yellow, generous white head, decent lingering. Mandarin and coriander dominate the aroma. The citrus is deep enough to almost be grapey. Light body with pungent mandarin flavors, tempered by other spices. Coating mouthfeel, but not chewy, more like fruit pectin and yeast esters causing it. Some minor hop notes supplement the fruit character. A nicely balanced fruit beer, but I feel it could benefit from a greater malt backbone. This would drive the sweetness to being more beer-like instead of fruit drinkish.

badlizard (5538) - Berkeley, California, USA - OCT 14, 2007
On tap at pizza port. Clear golden amber with a fizzy white head. Citrus orange and honey aroma. Bready citrus, spice, and honey taste with a crisp yeasty finish.

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2006
Light orange body with thin white head. Aroma is citrus hop and orange. Solid fresh honey comb flavor like it was out of the bee box. Light orange cream balance. Smooth sticky palate. I really dig the honey in this one.

winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - APR 25, 2006
On draught at brewery. This beer is very reminiscent of a belgian wit. It has the orange and coriander flavors but instead of a light crisp acidity, there is a lightly sweet candy/honey finish.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 1, 2007
Pours golden w/ an orange hue. A full, semi creamy froth rises and hangs there for a bit. Textbook lacing w/ a full, thick ring and a silky canopy. Aroma is very mild w/ malted spicey orange blossoms. Medium full nectar w/ cotton creamy effers. Malt dominant w/ a crisp, yet mellow, spicey mandarin character. Very drinkable w/ mild fruit flavors and a bit of cereal, like Fruity Pebbles. Not sweet at all. The finish is bittered w/ velvety orange rind and a bit of acid.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2007
Copper pour, small white head. Aroma of biscuit malt and slight orange. Flavor is orange, slight honey, a touch of coriander. Sweet yet malty with orange in the whole time. Great session beer. Surprisingly malty, biscuit and toasty but sweet with orange.

DenverLogan (811) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Light copper color...small but persistent head with slight lace. Aroma of malt, straw, orange. Flavorful, significant mandarin orange, lemon, straw, grains, slight sweetness, some bitter notes, light overall but decent as a summer session beer or first brew of the evening.
