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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at Yard House Houston. It’s an unclear orange colored drink topped by a finger thick white head leaving lacings. The aroma has little else than artificial orange and orange peel, and the same goes for the quite sweet flavor. Not much bitterness going on. Medium body with a low, but pleasant level of carbonation. Artificial orange finish with sugary sweetness. Not my cup of tea, but drinkable in small amounts. 131114

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap @ Black Bottle. Pours a very cloudy yellow orange appearance with a white head. Very spritzy, huge orange blossom, lemonade, tart citrusy aroma. Big orange juice, tart lemon, fairly sweet/slightly sugary, pretty refreshing flavor. Not sure if I could finish enough of these to get fucken wasted but maybe.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy orange pour with minimal white head. Smell is actually sweet oj and faint grains. Taste is watered down oj, seltzer water, wheat, slight sour/sweet. Not bad at all buuuut not good. Better than most of the blue moon stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this one bottled thanks to Porkchop! An opaque, orange pour with a wispy white head, light, citrusy nose with a touch of spice, which continues into a bright citrusy flavor. A bit of clove. Fades into a very faint citrusy hoppiness. Mouthfeel is milky. Not a bad beer, although it seems like it would have been better marketed in the summertime.
