2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
650 ml bottle purchased at the LCBO in Hawkesbury (Ontario) on June 6, 2013. Honey orange, small head. Light aroma of malted barley with a touch of orange. The taste is quite the same, but very dry, it’s like eating dried oranges, and an unpleasant finish bitter barley. Not for orange lover!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650 mL Bottle. Gold body with a foamy-rocky white head settling to a thin but tenacious layer leaving stringy lace. Oranges and orange peel are noticeable in the aroma along with light sweet malts, floral and earthy notes, and tangy hops. Orange peels make their presence in the flavor along with light sweet malts, citrus aftertaste, and an orange peel finish that gives it an astringent character. Nothing super sensational but different in its own interesting way.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650ml bottle. Pours a clear, light amber colour with a short head. The nose is impressively fresh oranges with some grainy notes but not much else. The flavour really leaves a bit to be desired. The orange, hops and malt just don’t jive properly together.

Not a particularly exceptional fruit beer. The orange peel comes across as astringent, not sweet, with very little aroma. Picked this up in Toronto in 2013.

I like when citrus mingles with my liqour so why not in my beer? Two finger foam cap that descends into lake-like valley. Nothing much on the nose & subtle on the mouth. Got a bit of that funky skunky mud water after taste that so many southern Ontario brewers can’t seem to shake.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured clear golden, nice small clean head. A small distinct citrus aroma. Not overbearing smell. Aeroma matches clean look.
Taste is a bit of a disapointment as i was expecting a slightly stronger taste. Was a bit too weak. Beer might have been too cold.
Overall, will drink this again!

Nasty artificial orange flavoring aroma, weak bodied, flavorless specialty ale. Not worth 4.95$ for a bomber. Don’t waste your time.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer pours a clear straw colour, with a soapy white head that quickly dissipates leaving some good lacing. The aroma is of orange peel, yeast, and some light malts. The taste is packed with bitter orange peel, it tastes just like you are chewing orange rinds! Some mild malt notes poke through the orange peel flavour, but this beer is definitely living up to its name. From previous years I have heard the orange taste was lacking, this years batch is just exploding with orange peel bitterness! Quite interesting, and refreshing!
