One of my favorite summertime beers of all time. Orange tint and mandarin orange flavor. I was sad to see this one go. Rated 7/4/04

This is the perfect beer to enjoy in the middle of the summer in Phoenix AZ. Iíve had it both on tap and in the bottle and both times Iíve been very pleased. It has a pale orange appearance with a orange flavor aroma. Its not a fruit beer per se but more like a light hefeweizen with mandarin orange undertones. Itís such an easy beer to drink and remains one of my top three summer time beers.

As a conniseur of Fruit beers this is my comments on this one. Taste like an Orange wheat beer. Probably not doing it justice following Hair of the Dog Adam. Lets be honest. When a beer is a Fruit beer it better taste like the fruit its proclaiming it is. In this instance, Grants Mandarin Hefeweizen lives up to its billing. Iím not saying its the bomb. Iím saying if Orange Mandarin is what your seeking. This is a very good choice. Would be a tremendous hot weather beer. As it is today where Iím residing. Just hard to follow Adam. It would be so for any beer but I give it props for living up to its own billing.

This was one of the best finds I made when living in Seattle. While I tend to be a purist, living in the Pacific Northwest meant that I had to endure overly hopped IPAs on a regular basis. This beer added a balanced flavour with an interesting twist. I had a friend come and visit me from Seattle and had her carry a 6 pack on the plane for me.

Gold bodied with a short-lived head. The aroma is sweet Mandarin oranges and garden flowers. The oranges become almost syrupy sweet in the flavor, although the wheat finally shows up in the background.

While I hate it when you order a wheat beer at a bar and they stick a fruit slice in it without asking first, I liked this beer. The Mandarin aroma and taste is very refreshing, even though I know it is a replacement for the slice of fruit I hate. But why should this be any different from Unibroue's Ephemere flavored beers.

Pours just like a hefe weizen,nice and cloudy with a decent head.Definately tastes of grain and oranges.As i let this beer go to room temp, the orange became more dominant.The finish was clean and overall will have to have more.

Golden hazy straw color. Nice puffy head with some desperate lacing clinging on with their last ounce of strength. Strong orange and clove aroma, reminds me of those chocolate oranges they have at christmas time. Flavor is mainly an american wheat but a little sweet, nothing stands out in the flavor. The finish is zesty and creamy, you can barely feel yourself drinking this beer. I like this one.
