3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
