tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - AUG 22, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Tap: Opaque brown-copper body, lighter amber near top and bottom. Creamy eggshell head, a lace ring or two is left behind. Aroma is juicy, spicy orange flesh and orange peel. Slightly sugary, Pez candy like, a bit of wheat, too? Taste is wheaty, tastes like a fruited wheat beer... Need to confirm. Hint of orange zest, not as strong as I’d like it. Kind if normal orange, not much "blood" orange. Very mild tartness mid palate that fades to a dry, wheat finish. Light toasty malt, too. Thin, crisp mouth feel. Decent at first, but the orange vibrancy grows with warmth & beer gets better. Pretty nice fruited ale by the end of the glass.

Listigovers (823) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2016
Cloudy orange brown. Smells like orange peel and lots of caramel, taste has no bitterness and lots of caramel, medium body, bread. Sweet but balanced by the orange, not bad, drinkable interesting idea.

Got this at the brewery. It is light and fruity. Has a bit of a malty/dry taste after a few sips. Pretty tasty on a hot summer day.

Slipstream (2403) - USA - MAY 21, 2016
This pours out muddy looking from a bottle with a label that didn’t do much for me. The taste is mostly light and smooth, with a dash of curacao in the flavor. The hops are turned down low, maybe a little too low. I was hoping for a little more from Dark Horse.

wlajwl (5502) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 24, 2016
Aroma is fresh orange and a background of other citrus and fruit. The flavor is orange, bready/biscuit malts, fruit and a mix of tart and bittersweet in the finish.

Ugh. Not citrusy. Not blood orange. Just light bubbles like champagne beer. Not impressed. I am juicing blood oranges and cannot isolate the blood orange in this beer. Sorry Charlie. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thedm (5496) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 12, 2016
This bottled brew from a rating party poured a small sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a slightly hazy orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy and orange. with a mellow fruity aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of bitter orange floral and hops. A decent one but not one that I would consider drinking again.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2016 Draft at Eulogy. Hazy orange amber pour with a slim off-white head. Earthy citrus hops. Blood oranges. Bit juicy. Interesting but missing in flavor.
