COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
ORANGE WHEAT Crisp, Tart, and Refreshing. Whole locally grown oranges added throughout the brewing process perfectly compliment this unfiltered wheat and barley based beer. Our oranges are purchased through the Old Grove Orange company (affiliate of the non-profit Inland Orange Conservancy) whose main objectives are to save the local orange trees from disappearing, spread the word about the local citrus growing heritage, and to feed the hungry with the unutilized oranges. Please visit them at www.inlandorange.org. All we need to do to save the orange trees is to eat locally grown oranges!

fonefan (34222) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2011

Bottle 12fl.oz. @ home.

[ Trade by JohnC ]. Light unclear light yellow colour with a average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white to off-white head. Aroma is light moderate malty, citrus - lemon - lime, light moderate yeasty, light coriander - ginger. Flavour is moderate to light light heavy sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average to long duration, citrus, soapy citrus, dry, peppery notes. IMO a bit like a saison ! Body is medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. [20110606]

marcus (6318) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 4, 2011
Bottle at Davis Beerfest 2011. Pours cloudy yellow with a rich off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty wheat background with a subtle orange flavor from freshly squeezed valley oranges. This is a unique and very tasty wheat beer.

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - JUN 3, 2011
Sampled on tap on 6/3/2011 at Bruery Provisions. This wheat beer pours a light yellow gold color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, lot of orange and orange rind. A light bodied wheat ale/fruit beer. The malts are fruity and sweet, lots and lots or orange flavors. The hops are herbal. Light and refreshing. A whole bunch of orange and orange rind flavors. Would make a nice summer beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUN 3, 2011
[Tap @ Brewery] Clouded, white ale like, appearance. Fresh orange nose, probably more tangerine. Subtle light orange on the palate, balances well in this well craftyed wheat beer. Most pleasing is the fact the orange is not overdone but adds a flavorful freshness.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - MAY 16, 2011
12 oz bottle from a sixer I picked up at Stater Brothers. Not what I expected. Reminded me of Widmer Hefe. Really nice orangeish blond color. No aroma to speak of. Flavor is heavy on wheat malts, low on Orange. Clean, very drinkable, but fairly forgettable as well. Not really any hops here - I recognize that hops are not typically something you would find in a beer like this, but I think it would benefit from a tiny bit of citrus hops. Just my tastes, I guess. This would work in the backyard in mid July, but it’s not really something I would seek out, either.

joeneugs (3107) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 21, 2011
On tap at the brewery. I like the fact that they use fresh oranges from the grove literally next door the the brewery. It pours cloudy yellow with a white head. The aroma is big on orange juice with some mild notes of wheat. The flavor is dry with watered down orange juice, orange peel, and a wheaty finish. The mouthfeel is frothy with a touch of soap. The oranges take total control here.

Hazy pale yellow color/ white head. Orange, lemon, citrusy aromas. light bodied. Mostly a sweet orange, tart lemon citrusy wheaty flavor- not bad.

ChazMania (650) - Pasadena, California, USA - DEC 11, 2010
I’ve had this a few times, this rating is for a fresh tap pour at the brewery. Good orange aroma with some zing, a very refreshing beer yet I just prefer heavier hopped beers. This would be good on a hot day mowing the lawn.

Bottle shared by footbalm, thanks man! Pours a cloudy pale yellow color with a medium white head. A smooth orange and wheat nose. A nice flavor is pronounced and somewhat dry oranges, lots of grain. Yeasty and smooth.
