2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Whtie fizzy head, clear orange body. Aroma is filled with orange. Orange soda, orange sherbert, etc. Taste is an almost nasty orange sherbert flavor with what seems like a wheaty adjunct finish. Slightly sour at times as well, but it has a big sweet honey component that balances that out. Eh.... donít understand why this is marked as a "winter" seasonal, when it seems like a refreshing, albeit awkward tasting summer beer.

Hey my tastes are very ecclectic and I like a good stout as much as the next guy, but I really love beers made with fruit. Sure Lambics are better quaity but I tasted the fresh honey and fresh orange peel. It was a refreshing brew. Okay maybe it need a little more bite but it was a mild beer to drink on a hot day and quite original.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a deep golden color. Smells like orange flavored mineral water. Tastes like some sort of an orange beverage, not really like a brew. Itís alright to try one but I wouldnít sit down with a sixer of this.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours orangish/dark straw with big orange aroma. This does taste like a mixture of orange soda and orange mineral water. The taste is very unbeerlike. I appreciate the novelty of this, but I probably wouldnít seek it out again. Not bad, just not something Iíd look for.

I thought that this would be some fake tasting daisy crap. It wasnít too bad, for a girly beer. It tastes like orange candy. I would try it again just for the hell of it if I got the chance. Much better than Sam Adamís Cherry Wheat or Leinenkugelís Berry Weiss.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Orange-amber body, no head or carbonation. Smells and tastes like an oragne Fanta with some white bread notes. Even though I donít see any carbonation in the body, thereís still a good amount of tingle on the tongue. I was really excited about the beer when I first opened it up, it smelled really good. After sitting down with it, I realize itís just a mass-appeal crappy fruit beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very strong musky orange aroma. Gold color and slightly but very artificially carbonated. Interesting but a bit hard to swallow. Drink ice cold.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Gold color, thin white head. Big orange creamcicle aroma, fairly pleasant. Flavor of orange peel, somewhat artificial. Thinner body. Really not that bad but too much orange to enjoy. Theres no way I could drink more than one.

Very fruity. A sweet beer. I call it a "chick" beer and my female friends love it. The orange overpowers the malt and hops. A good choice if you want a wine cooler and thereís none available.
