COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Winner of our 14th annual Homebrew Competition in 2009. Lloyd Cicetti’s Wheat Beer with Blood Oranges is a citrusy and supremely refreshing with floral notes thanks to Sicillian blood orange zest added to the brew kettle and puree added during and after fermentation. This hefeweizen has hints of fruity esters and spice from Bavarian wheat yeast.

DrSilverworm (6318) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Taster on tap at the brewpub. Totally hazy, slight orange color. Thin off-white head, some loose bits of lace. Great orange and zesty flavor up front, some light banana. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Grapefruit flavor. Good zest, light tangy. Tasty, impressive fruity wheat beer.

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.

jsquire (3441) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Turbid pinkish orange color with only the shortest lived white head. Light orange spritzy nose. I hadn’t read the description before tasting this, and I got a big splach of orange juice. Orange, acidity, and a long bitter orange pith in the finish. Very lively on the tongue. I could see this being a light, summer refresher.

JStax (2974) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Poured on draft. Appearance is a nice shade of pink, like that of the inside of a grapefruit. Aroma is big on the blood orange citrus fruit. Sweeter than the typical orange and a little more sour. Some German Hefeweizen character comes through, too, in its yeasty, wheaty notes. Taste is like drinking an orange juice, grapefruit juice, and a nice hefeweizen that is stirred with a cinnamon stick and some cloves added. Interesting and delicious beer. Something I could drink all day.

theisti (3219) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Shaker pint draft at the brewpub in Columbus, Ohio. The pour is a deeply hazed blood orange with a small white head. The aroma is the strong fruit of the blood orange, along with grain wheat, some light clove yeast, and a touch of lemon citrus. The taste is blood orange, the fruit dominates initially, followed by some bitterness from the peel, turns to the wheat grain, and finishes with a hint of clove - aftertaste is more orange peel. The palate is light bodied, pleasant unfiltered mouth feel, lowish carbonation, a minor note of diacetyl (this grew some as it warmed, showing oak and butter) in the muted fruit finish. Thirst quenching, fun beer.
