4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very impressive beer, though I’d probably call it a Wheat Ale over a hefeweizen because it lacks the distinct yeast character. The blood orange is very well-integrated and quite pungent. It’s a bit "fruit beery" for me but it’s quite well made.

Draft at the brewery, this was well done, strong blood orange flavor in the fore front. Then light wheat. Taste is all orange, sweet orange on a dry wheat beer. Very nicely executed. Finish is distinctly blood orange.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap as part of a discounted flight.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with slim faint yellow hues arranging themselves in and out on the body. Light carbonation was somewhat seen rising.
The smell had the blood orange up front and didn’t really allow much else there.
The taste was mainly orange fruity sweet. Strong orange aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation comes across pretty strong.
Overall, not a hefeweizen, no qualities of a true one exists in this beer. However, being that the blood orange does come across as pure and authentic, I’m slightly at a loss for how to put my numbers on this one. Leaves me scratching my head a bit because I liked it for what it is.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at barley’s brewing in Columbus Ohio. The color of this brew is copper with a hint of red. Hazy with a good head of lace. Nose is crisp, a touch acrid and full of orange zest. Taste is crisp amd clean wheat beer with a nice but not overpowering orange aspect. Not my favorite style, but this beer is very nice. The orange flavor is not over sweet. Quite natural.

Draft. Looks like a glass of grapefruit juice and tastes a bit like it. Aroma is all citrus. Sour of grapefruit and sweetness of oranges. Refreshing.

Draft at Barleys in August 2012 notes. Pours a slightly hazy orange golden color with a small white head that doesn’t last. The aroma and flavor have orange citrus, slightly tangy, grass, pale wheat malts. On a hot summer day this is a maybe.
