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 wouldn’t seek it out again. Not bad, just not something I’d look for.

I thought that this would be some fake tasting daisy crap. It wasn’t 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 Adam’s Cherry Wheat or Leinenkugel’s 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 don’t see any carbonation in the body, there’s 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 it’s just a mass-appeal crappy fruit beer.

Very strong musky orange aroma. Gold color and slightly but very artificially carbonated. Interesting but a bit hard to swallow. Drink ice cold.

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 there’s none available.

A little toooo crisp, but not a bad beer. I am glad I only bought a single, however.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma is enormously orange--orangier than an orange soda. Nothing else is detectable. Transparent golden color with a small white head. Lots of tart/sour citrus orange in the start. Rather cloying. Finish has some redeeming roasty maltiness with a trace of hops. Too fruity. Basically a Smirnoff Mandarin twist that’s yellow instead of clear.

pours a clear honey color, very little head. Very strong orange aroma, totally dominates initial senses. I do detect a hint of hops in the nose too. Orange is the dominant taste also, no balance, it is sweet and very much orange. Maybe a hint of bitterness, or is that the orange pith I taste?
