3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[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.

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 itís not really something I would seek out, either.

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.

Iíve 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.

The orange is nice on this beer for what it is...subtle and not overwhelming and of course a natural compliment to this hefeweizen style, but Iím not much of a fan of wheat beers unless they are Belgian-style whites. Not a bad beer and some folks probably love this, but not my thing.

I had this beer on tap at Orange County Brew Ha Ha in Irvine, CA.
nicely done wheat/fruit beer. the orange and wheat balance each other well. This would be a nice session beer on a hot summer day

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A: The pour is a very light and very cloudy yellow sort of color with a white head.
S: A very strong aroma of bitter orange peels and some slightly sweet and slightly sour wheat.
T: The same intense orange peel character is there providing quite a bit of bitterness and astringency. The base beer is pretty much your usual mediocre, slightly sour pale wheat ale you find at brewpubs.
M: The body is light with a high level of carbonation.
D: Not a fan of this one, but for some reason it sells really well around here.
