OKAY: so it’s not the best beer in the world, but it is the best Henry’s right now, and at an average of $8.99-$9.99 for a halfer, it’s a pretty good alternative to the PBR I usually drink. TASTES LIKE: Orange Fruit Loops, or more appropriately, orange Fruiti-O’s, the generic Fruit Loops you eat when you grow up in Hillsboro, Oregon like I did. BEST ENJOYED: at an 8am tailgate party for a 12:30 kickoff, or anytime you’re feeling volcombus.

Horrible offering from Henry’s. The orange flavor is overwhelming and does not mix well with the carbonation. It feels like drinking a moldy orange in tonic water. Steer clear of this monster.

over the top orange-coriander aroma dominates - and this leads to a "wham! pow!" hit you in the head orange coriander taste - goes down with the aftertaste of oranges followed by a lingering coriander bite. In short this beer is orange and coriander. It is more like one of those Zima things than beer.

To me summer is about nice warm days clear skies and fresh fruit. This beer fits in perfect with my perception of summer. The aroma is of Oranges and so is the taste a nice Orange flavor with a lingering Orange after taste, the Orange is not over powering it is just right a very good summer ale.

Lots of orange and citrus flavor, as well as some other spices. Not a real strong wheat presence, but a nice body and clean finish. Good summer beer by HW.

Big infussed orange from the first to last drop. Finish is clean, light hop notes. Rather intersting ale.

Pours a hazy golden yellow. Aroams of bread, fruit and spices. Flavors of orange, spice and some hints of citrus hop.

Great concept, but falls short. Seems like this brew wants to be Blue Moon, but needs to go back to the drawing board.

Bottle pour into footed pilsner glass. Sun gold color, short-lived white head. Strong orange aroma (thumbs up for harlequinn’s Froot Loops comparison) carries through on the tongue. I didn’t pick up too much of the coriander. It’s light, thin, fizzy, and yet strangely still drinkable. Must’ve had too much Kool-Aid as a kid.
