Decent little session ale, with a lot of fruity flavors and scents going on here. Intense hop flavor that highlights carbonation and zest. A decent pour.

Very good beer but I find from bottle to bottle there is too much variation. I like the orange zest but have found similar beers including a local competitor; Arcadia which seems to have a better use of the orange zest in their competitor to Oberon. The lack of bottle consistency is only negative.

Mad_Ferret (943) - SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2016
Can from Kihoskh during CBC 2016. Cloudy orange/yellow with a thick medium sized off white head. Refreshing aroma of orange juice, wheat, zest and some spice. Maybe a weak hint of banana. Thick and refreshing at the same time. Sweet and soft wheaty orange juice flavour with a zesty bitter finish and a creamy thickness in the back of the throat. Medium bodied, soft crabonation, creamy mouthfeel. Creamy and full with orange flavour. Maybe a tad sweet. Or it’s just a bit too old.

Taste is medium sweet wheat, fruity, peach, spicy yeasty, medium- bitterness, dryish finish, bready. Light+ bodied, soft carbonation. Nothing special really... (bottle, Vrutak, Zagreb)

Burk från Mikkellers webbshop. Fin apelsinzestdoft, med lite persikagodistouch. Juicig smak, lite veterlig, mjuk lite krämig munkänsla, fina apelsinsmaker, lite smågodis, persika, måttlig beska. Riktigt trevlig.
