4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer is extrodinary. I have never had any thing quites like it. Very well balanced. Pours very pale and cloudy, with a thick white head that thins slowly. The aroma is pleasant, that of apples. It kind of reminds me of the smell of a cider. The flavor is delightful as well. Apples, citrus and spices are present. The spicy sweetness lingers in your mouth. This beer is very smooth and drinkable. This beer would be good all year round. It is refreshing enough to be enjoyed during the summer, but spicy enough to remind you of the holidays. Very good, Very delicious, try it!

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2008 This was a Christmas present. The head formed easily but dissapated. there was lacing down the glass. The color was a cloudy straw. The taste was yeasty with a hint of spice. It was not my type of beer. I like more hops. I rescored this wheat beer o March 9, 2008. It is too sweet with nohops. the orange flavors are just not me.

Bottle. Pours a unique hazy light gold with thick bone-white head. Aroma is of hops, spices and bread. Taste is yeasty, very spicy and somewhat citrusy. Very tasty. Excellent beer.

Hazy very pale yellow beer with a short lasting head but persistent lacing. Very interesting aromas of fruit and spices, much brighter and fresher than most wheat beers. Spices and citrus flavors with a lingering sweetness. Thin mouthfeel with ample carbonation and extreme drinkability. Makes me want warm summer night.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2006 The aroma from this brew is heavenly. Fruity with orange and coriander flavors. It is a thin beer which makes it exceptionally good for a hot summer night. Not even a hint of bitterness makes it all to easy to drink far to many of these.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[From a botle] Fizzy, cloudy yellow with a thick foamy head that diminishes to a film, leaving behind white lace. Fruity and spicy aroma iwth cloves, orange, banana, lemon, and a touch of malt. Flavour reflects aroma with a little more lemon and much more obvious malt. No bitterness. Feels and tastes very clean. Explosive carbonation. Just a little thin for my taste.

Nice frothy head but not very stable, light yellow color, hazy. Mandariny citrusy aroma with notes of coriander. Flavor is moderately sweet, taste of sugared mandarin juice, light bodied, refreshing. Coriander and a light astringent dryness in the finish. Pleasant, very pleasant.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I’ve been eyeballing this brew for a few weeks at the grocery now, so I picked up a sixer of it last night. Glad I did - It was about as I expected it to be. Basically, it is a much better Blue Moon. Pours a decent golden color with a peculiar haze, which definitely fits their claim of being unfiltered. The head is a nice yellowish white creamy pillow. It didn’t last too long though - not sure if it was how I poured it or if it does this anyway. You can definitely smell the citrus in this stuff. The taste is very light orange w/ spice, a refreshing change from the overly fruity Blue Moon. Goes down smooth and leaves no funky aftertastes. Honestly, the only negative part of this brew is the cost. I guess if I am going to spend $8.49 for a sixer, I grab Anchor Steam Beer instead. Definitely a nice change of pace though. Highly recommended if you are hankering for a slightly sweet brew.
