At $9.98 for a case of bottles, best beer ever as long as a shot of quality bourbon is added to offset the Orange Fanta flavor.

weihenweizen (1507) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a glass. Pours translucent golden with small white head. Citrus aroma (mostly orange), medium body, low carbonation, and some small bubble lacing. Taste is rich sweet slightly medicinal citrus (mostly orange).

DISCOUNT BIN BEER! 12 oz can into a glass. A: Pours a hazy orange juice color. The head is shockingly good; itís about two fingers high, with an eggshell shade. Itís texture is amazingly thick and creamy, and retains very well. Iíll go easy on the score here, because I imagine this is what one of those fabled Hill Farmstead IPAs look like. S: Ever know what those little sliced orange candies smell like? Pretty much this. It smells mostly like artificial orange sweetness with a (very minute) side of beer. Very little about this aroma is appealing in any way. T: The flavors are slightly more beer-y, but not enough to redeem it. Way, way, WAY too much of that artificial orange flavoring comes through to start...and to finish for that matter. Itís a shitty orange soda mixed with a mediocre macro lager. Enough said. M: Well...um...itís light and kind of sweet. The sweetness lingers on the tongue unpleasantly, and itís just a chore to drink. O: Tickers gonna tick, amirite?

Fruity beer is just wrong. I did have the thought of pouring this one over vanilla ice cream for a creamsicle experience, but never got past my first sip.

tectactoe (1177) - Michigan, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Can: Thatís right, can muthafugga. I poured that shit into a mason jar, though, ícos Iím classy like that. Deliverance style. Cloudy & murky, looks like semi-transparent orange juice... Frothy, bone-white head on top. Smells like orange Kool-Aid with a faint grainy background being the only indicator that what Iím holding is actually a malt beverage. Light grain flavor, but mostly just tastes like an orange spritzer. Watered down Kool-Aid, but beer. Surprisingly refreshing, as I find orange to be one of the best tasting "artificial" fruit flavors you can have. Kind of straight forward & one-dimensional, like most Nicholas Cage movies. But it gets the job done... if the job is not to dehydrate.

DandyWolfFloyd (623) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Aroma - is a stale wheat, hand soap, and orange Apperance - body is an orange-yellow; liquid is cloudy; white head is about 1/4" Taste - its orange-flavored, sort of like an orange creamsicle with a little coriander, well hidden, and a tad coriander Palate - body is light to medium; texture is thin to soft; carbonation is lively, the finish is abrupt.

simonblaine (230) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 22, 2014
Drank from bottle, lotsa orange aroma, but fake orange, like McDonalds orange pop. Taste is orange pop and light lager mixed. Slight hints of straw and grass. Not too bad, good on a summer day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bubbleflubber (1712) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - FEB 13, 2014
This pours a hazy golden-yellow straw into the glass, with a nice wispy head that leaves pocked lacing. The nose is of oranges (x3). Again, a HUGE orange nose, and credit given. Flavors of oranges, rind, peel and zest, and a ton of JuicyFruit Gum to finish. The cloying orange pushes past the normal "fruit beer" status and goes into an almost syrupy mouthfeel for such a light body. A bit too sweet and over-"oranged", this comes across as much more than a "transitional" palate maturer, and almost appeases the traditional "macro crowd" quite more than most discerning palates would recommend.

Bottle from Philly cheese. Zesty is definitely the best word to describe this beer. It is refreshing, taste a little like orange crush soda. As for it being a beer...ehh...why not.

A lovely combination that compliments Summer Shandy. Detractors of this libation are nothing more than clopated citified morons.
