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!

Pretty cloudy appearance. Aroma is quite strong of wheat, some orange, but the flavor has a bit too much wheat dominance for me. Still, it’s not bad. Works for those who like this style I imagine.

Since I like other wheat beers, I decided to give this one a try. It was not good: the nose was okay, but the flavor just didn’t hold up. Avoid!

12 oz bottle. Not much happening with this one. Hazy golden pour with quick head. Nose is funky and not in a good saison way. Grainy with very little by way of orange or any citrus for that matter. Taste is equally unimpressive. Maybe a bad bottle or just a mediocre beer at best.

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 (6419) - 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.

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.

[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.
