bottle. Poured gold with fine sediment at the bottom of the bottle, thinning white head. Subdued bready aroma. Light body, creamy almost thick mouthfeel with low bitterness. Flavour of bready malts, sweet orange note with just a touch of spice.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle from Spirits Manahawkin. Poured a lighter orange/brown body with a smaller fizzy off white head that quickly and totaly disipates. Aroma is not good, medicinal and dusty with a touch of green apple and vanilla candle. Fizzy carbonation dominates the body on this one with perhaps a medium mouthfeel and a quicker fading aftertaste. Flavor of old bread, earth, dough, tea. Blah.

Pours out as a flat, murky orange, with minimal to zero head. Citrus orange aroma and taste, Light bodied wheat ale where the citrus flavor dominates. Summer refresher nothing more, nothing less.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
pours hazy if not cloudy golden orange with a nice orange cap, some retention and lacing. doughy caramel, sweetish spicy cereals, phenols, fruitiness - oranges, wheat spiciness, bitter herbs and other spices - dill upfront, shy coriander in this miscellaneous spicy concoction, very lightly tart small fruits. moderately low carbonation, light body, slightly astringent and assertive herbal-grassy-very peppery but also citrusy finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nose is extremely sweet and candyish, honeyed, orange, citric; pours cloudy golden with extremely heavy carbonation and a fizzy cola head. Taste is actually not all that sweet, even off-dry; some earthy and anise-leaning character (Iíd say itís a phenol) with some strong-starting alcohol, orange jam, strong honey. Wheat, minerals, spice, very light caramel. Medium-full body, sting of tartness and light burn on the tongue, everywhere an assault. I like the bready bit toward the end, but thatís also washed out a bit by the phenols. Actually really much more fun to drink than Iíve let on, has some rich spirit undertones and stands up against other foods and drinks.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap poured into a shaker. Aromas of orange, cereal and wheat, and a light bit of clove. The appearance is a cloudy orange body with a very thin white ring that doesnít leave any lace. The beer is a medium sweet with a light bitter. It has a flat, light, creamy carbonation with a medium body and a light, slick texture. A strong spicy (clove) note comes through in the finish with a bit of an orange peel. The aftertaste is a dry spicy note. Iím a bit suspicious that they may have poured me a Blue Moon, but I have no proof.
