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!

650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a small white head that slowly recedes to a film. The aroma is mild with faint oranges and lemons. The flavor is rather undistinguished with mild citrus and is backed by bready malts. The palate is full and creamy with lively carbonation. The finish is short and dry. Overall: Meh, not much going on here. It is not until I belch, and the flavor of that belch comes up oranges, that I really appreciate the citrus. This beer gets an extra point as the best belcher so far this year.

12oz bottle from Secret Santa. Hazy straw yellow pour with a pillowy white head. Aroma was very fresh and orangy with your typical yeastiness from a wheat. Nicely done. Flavors were crisp, fruity and refreshing. A lot more orange than I was expecting going in. They captured the essence of the orange well. This remained light and extremely drinkable from start to finish. Excellent stuff.

Bomber from my Secret Santa, Saarlander - thanks, Aaron! Very pale gold pour, almost like a Berliner with a more fluffy head. Nose is very fruit, but not in the syrupy sense. Rather, it smells of very ripe orange and potent rind. Prickly mouthfeel, light on the palate. Very modest yeast and dry hops to taste, and the base beer certainly won’t wow you with its personality. But the intense organic citrus does satisfy.

Thourne (4) - California, USA - OCT 1, 2011 does not count
Very clean beer, notable but light citrusy, light sweetness, lively, beer to drink when its hot outside. Great flavor. good amount of bubbles. Descent amount of alcohol. 15+ beer drinker. Not a "fruit" beer drinker but this one is worth trying.

@ gabf...Pours cloudy lemon yellow lite orange aroma; orange & wheat on the palate- a little saccharine & thin for me.

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!

Bottle. Straw colored beerwith a whitish head. Wheat and light orange aroma. Orange and wheat flavor with light spice. Medium bodied. Refreshing. Orange and wheat lingers with light spice.

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.
