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!

Light yellow color, moderate sized head, average lacing and retention. Aroma is dominated by orange with notes of yeast, clove, grass. Medium to light bodied, watery mouthfeel. A nice concept.

22 oz. bottle from hophead22. Pours a hazy light golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have orange citrus, hay, pale malts and a hint of earth. Decent enough for what it is, but I probably wouldn’t reach for this unless I was mowing on a hot summer day (even then, there are better options).

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Tasty beer for summer months when a low ABV is nice for drinking a lot around the pool or beach. I enjoyed the light orange flavor and smooth mouthfeel from the wheat.

SDalkoholic (2168) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Appeared as a gloomy glowing yellow with a fizzy short lived head. Aroma is fruity with a tangerine peel smell while a background of grains and wheat hang out in the background. The flavor is tangy with a grassy flavor of wheat and hops. Nothing out of the ordinary and actually a beer I question why a brewery would place it into distribution?

Raw orange flavor in a mild wheat beer. Cloudy, with a mild wheat flavor that is missing the zany funk of strongrr wheat beers. Very approachable.

Dr_Fellini (494) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Bottle to glass. Pours a very cloudy golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet, with strong wheat notes mixed with citrusy orange. Flavor is similar, like a tastier blue moon with heavier orange notes. Body is light to medium with an average carbonation. Sweetness, and a mild sour lingers into finish. Tasty wheat beer.

That1Guy (1942) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2013
12 oz bottle pours a very hazy, opaque yellow with a fluffy white head. Initial huge phenolic aroma, 4-vg city, cloves, and some citrus zest. Flavor is more phenols and clove, but the orange comes through much more, similar to orange Gatorade powder, and finishes sweet and pleasant. A little too phenolic for me, but still pretty nice.

Wittales (644) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Appearance was cloudy yellowish gold with diminishing rocky white 1 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are slight wheat, grain, yeasty cake with mello oranges. Taste was wheat, mild yeasty with hints of orange and lemon.

DesertDevil (535) - Arizona, USA - JUN 6, 2013
12-oz. bottle. Faint nose of yeasty orange. Pours a hazy light golden with a fizzy head due to a ton of effervescence. Not much flavor; just some weak citrus notes and a hint of cloves. Watery body but well-carbed. Meh.
