2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy and cloudy yellow gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is more orange rind than it is beer, it’s not like orange juice though, more like the oily zest from the orange. A light soapy note and some bready malt. The flavor is interesting, not super sweet like orange juice, which is what I was expecting. Just a light pithy orange rind note over a basic pale malt base. Light bodied and fizzy with a short finish. Not exactly a god beer, but it sure does drink pretty easy. Much easier than their lemon shandy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottles/cans. I know everyone hates on these, and maybe it’s just my personal nostalgia for Ecto Plasm Hi-C, but this hits the spot every time when it comes to a good, fruit-flavored session beer. Super easy to drink with the soapy character reserved in the back - not taking away from the easy sessionability of the brew.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Cloudy honey yellow orange pour a white head. Orange zest, powerful but slightly artificial citrus aroma. Strong carbonation upfront but lighter than expected body and flavor with watery finish. Not my type

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Milky honey blond with a monster white crown that takes way to long to reacquaint with the shandy below. Aroma of orange, lemon and sugar. Taste is all wrong and sweet with orange, lemon, orange rind and pithy notes.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Over powering orange and no real beer taste. If you gave it to me as a blind taste test, I'd probably guess it was a Mimosa before I guessed a Shandy.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not a far cry from the summer shandy, just orange. From bottle pours hazy golden orange with light white head that dissipates quickly. Tons of orange nose with hints of honey and wheat. Tastes heavy of orange juice and not much else. Refreshing and sweet but not much depth. Alcoholic orange juice.

Pour on tap, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought orange candy, some candied fruit, lots of orange juice, almost a dreamsicle type aroma, some slight biscuit and bready notes in there. Taste is dominated by orange juice, orange dreamsicle, some slight fruity notes with a hint of biscuit, finishing very sweet.
