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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Tmoney99 (10102) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Draft. Poured cloudy red yellow color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate banana, clove and citrus aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a solid sweet wheat finish of moderate duration. Good refreshing brew.

Bought this on-tap at the Beers of Ohio stand at Nationwide Arena before the Blue Jackets game last night, notes taken on my iPhone. Served in a clear plastic cup, the beer poured an orange/amber color with a very small head. Small amount of lacing. The brew smells like wheat, blood oranges/oranges and orange peel. I thought the taste was mostly like the aroma, it tastes like wheat/grainy malt, blood orange and orange peel. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it was a little bit coating but also crisp and refreshing. With moderate carbonation, it was smooth and easy to drink. I thought this was a solid overall brew, I’d certainly try it again in the future.

phaleslu (5889) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Draft in a sampler at Barley’s #1. Pours a hazy orange-gold color with a small bone white head. Tons of orange and tangerine citrus on the nose. Also wheat, sweet malts, and tropical fruits. The flavor is equally fruity and orangey, with a good deal of citrus in the aftertaste, too. Balancing wheat and malt, but it gets dominated. Light-bodied, with a juicy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. If you don’t like orange citrus, stay away.
