BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 19, 2008
[bottle] Pours a hazy golden yellow. Juicy orange aroma; peppery. Flavors are very fruity, strong ripe orange and citrus peel combined with tart wheat and spice. Finishes dry, with strong carbonation. Very good stuff.

Blueshawk (412) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - OCT 27, 2016
- trüb-gelbe Farbe mit leichter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - gut wahrnehmbare Aromen nach Orange und vielleicht, mit viel Fantasie Muskatnuss und Koriander - gute Carbonisierung - geschmacklich wird das Ganze dann nur noch dünn und nichtssagend - im Abgang kommt dann noch ein wenig von den beschriebenen Orangenschalen mit einem leicht würzigen Tick, aber nichts was ein besonderes Geschmackserlebnis darstellt Fazit: Seltsames, nach fast nichts schmeckendes, teures Gebräu

Bottle from Oddbins Rosemount. Pours cloudy orange caramel. Average carbonation makes for a refreshing lively palate. Fantastic citrus flavours with smooth notes of spice and banana. A super tasting orange-infused wheat beer.

rubyroo (87) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 10, 2016
Aroma is orange, coriander, nutmeg, pils malt. Appearance is hazy yellow with a thin sheet of pearly white head. Taste- mandarin orange, nutmeg, coriander, wheat malt. Palate is thin with above average carbonation and a semi-dry finish. Overall- a nice wheat beer with a unique Japanese flair. The orange tastes more Mandarin than traditional orange.

bbertels (351) - NORWAY - SEP 30, 2016
On tap at Den Gode Nabo, Trondheim. Ligth yellow, slightly hazy, some coriander and soft wheat. Medium to light taste and the coriander is more prominent but not very full. Nice and drinkable but not outstanding.

kustie (915) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2016
Bottle. Hazy yellow color with quite small head. Aroma has coriander, malt and some citrus. Taste is malty with fruity and a bit bitter and quite dry aftertaste. Flavors of wheat malt, coriander, citrus, orange juice. Very refreshing and almost perfect for a hot summer day.

Paladares (191) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 7, 2016
Botella. Espuma muy efimera aunque abundante en inicio. Color pomelo muy pálido y opaco. Aroma ligero a naranja y especias. Refrescante. Ciertamente se aprecia el zumo de naranja que dice en sus ingredientes. Tiene un toque final de ligero amargor. En conjunto no está mal. Distinta.
