Draft to plastic cup. I guess It’s free. Thanks VMWare. Apple, wheat, a touch of yeast. Clear light amber. Taste is skunk and pepper. No thanks.

Australian coca cola version in bottle. Thick syrupy opaque orange with little head, no head. Over the top artificial orange aroma, unpleasant vitamin c aftertaste. Not good

Pours with cloudy orange color and yeast particles. Very dissappointing head, quickly fading. Orange and citrus aroma obviously. with fizzy carbonation it looks like fanta tastes like fanta actually.

rayaron (784) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - AUG 26, 2015
Bottle sample. Hazy yellow with small white head. The aroma has lots of orange, yeasty with notes of wheat and candy. Sweet flavor, fruity (orange) and yeasty, notes of wheat and black pepper, a bit watery. Very carbonated, medium-bodied.

Robe orangée. Mousse moyennement. Blé marqué, fruits jaunes et agrumes. Moyennement longue en bouche. Une blanche passable.

Bottle - Cloudy orangey yellow colour with thick foamy head. Strong orange aroma. Smooth in mouth with slight ting on tongue. Good orange taste but not particularly tasting. Ok wit beer - easy drinkable.

Don’t really understand why it’s best served with a piece of orange. Bit odd. Tastes better on tap.

loku (29) - Villa Nueva, GUATEMALA - AUG 17, 2015
Apariencia: Color naranja turbio sin efervecencias visibles. Cabeza minima blanca de muy corta duración. Para anunciarse conmo una Ale Blanca, esperaba un liquido más claro. 3/5 Aroma:un poco de caramelo, pan y quizas goma de mascar. Muy tenues los aromas. 6/10 Paladar: Cuerpo mediano de textura cremosa y pegajosa en las encías. Sin burbujas y con un final largo astringente. 4/5 Sabor: un potente sabor dalado con un final bastante dulce. Prácticamente esta ausente alguna nota amarga. Interesante. 10/10 Overall. Disfruté mucho de esta cerveza. A la fecha la más dulce que me ha tocado probar. Solo por eso merece ser tomada en cuenta por el aficionado catador. Tengo debilidad además, por los tragos dulces. Lástima que su apariencia le hizo perder puntos. 19/20
