2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
An unclear orange beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of mandarin, while the flavor is sweet and very carbonated with notes of wheat and mandarin. Reminds me of a mandarin sodapop, both because of the flavor and the high carbonisation level.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a hazy pilsener golden with basically no head. Lightly fruity aroma. Light-bodied - almost watery. Distinct mandarin aroma albeit rather artificial. Dry finish. More extraordinary than really well made. 200606

Opaque golden topped by small white head and filled with many bubbles. Aroma is sweet mandarin orange, some wheat. Taste is mild sweet, even a bit sour, orange, lemon, wheat. Light body with minimal crispness. I suppose it achieves what it set out to do, but the combination doesn’t work for me.

Bottle. Poured with a small white head that diminshed quickly over a light amber color. Aroma was moderate hops with a citrus tone. The flavor was a light sweet with a short light sweet finish. Brewed as a light beer alternative.

Source: Beverage Resort
hazy dark yellow, whispy fine white head, light sweet orange aroma, light malt flavor with lots of orange sweetness like an oranqe soda, touch of bitterness in the finish
orange dries out after a while loosing some of the sweetness but keeping the orange flavor, an improvment, but still weird
Aroma: 5/10; Appearance: 8/10; Flavor: 5/10; Palate: 5/10; Overall: 10/20
The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.

Poured a medium and clear golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas and tastes of light oranges, some spices and maybe some wheat in there. Lightly sour with some malts. Thinner and lighter body.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer is a lightly cloudy golden-amber color with a minimal off-white head and very little lacing. The aroma is mild citrus and wheat. Light-bodied and bubbly, with a blend of citrus (orange of course), wheat and even some malt. The finish is crisp and sweet. All in all this beer is easy to drink and somewhat refreshing, albeit not at all complex.
