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.

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.

From tap. Pours hazy to murky orange with a small white head. Aroma is mild fruity. Slight toasted malty, subdued fruity. Toasted, mild yeasty, fruity. Medium dry 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 (5355) - Fort Wayne, 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.

NikkTwist (2399) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2016
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.

chinchill (3777) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 30, 2016
12 oz bottle into a lager glass. Bottling date of 8 Feb. 2016. Appearance: Medium orange-amber body topped by a tall, off-white head. Very good retention. Slightly hazy. Temporary sheets of lacing coat the glass upon tipping. A bit of sediment left on the bottom of the bottle. Aroma: Moderately strong mix of juicy oranges and fruity/spicy hops. Flavor: Lightly sweet hitting the tongue but this is fleeting; the nice fresh orange note is longer lasting. Mild bitterness is about average for a 2015 APA. Mouthfeel: Medium body. Lively, medium+ carbonation. Overall: Recommended. Well crafted variant on a standard APA. Good with cheese.

Pours a hazy orange. No head. Mostly orange aroma. Tastes a bit like a pilsner with some orange flavor added. Not a fan of this.

JStax (4531) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Draft pour. The beer is a hazy orange with a pink hue to it. Fizzy white head of foam. The aroma has fruity citrus with nice pine bitterness sneaking in. Medium sweetness and juicy citrus character throughout. Medium body and medium carbonation. Pretty good.

jmohno (1446) - Iowa, USA - MAR 14, 2016
Hazed murky orange, slight red but more brown. Good head, lacing. Smell reminds me of lemonade, but orange. Spice, almost saison like but radler like other raters have said. Fizzy light citrus. This doesn’t come off as a pale, radler. This is supposibly seasonably fresh. As a pale/ fruit beer its not great. Pissed about this being $12 6er.
