Pours a hazy straw, like pineapple juice. Aroma is like orange Hi-C. Flavor is mostly orange, some wheat, some coriander. Itís not bad, a good summer beer. Good beer for those that donít like beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2009 Addendum--on tap @ the Miller Brewery in Milwaukee. It smells and tastes exactly like Fruity Pebbles. I would like Fruity Pebbles for my breakfast tomorrow now. 12oz bottle, no date. Pours a cloudy dark straw with a moderate white head. Aroma of ripe oranges--almost too sweet. Tastes of ripe oranges and artificial orange flavor and then fades into a wheaty finish. Thin body, moderate carbonation. I find this beer to be in between a Blue Moon (which everyone hates) and an American Wheat (which is usually a nondescript "mah" beer). Most people I?ve talked to think this is great. Also, most people I talk to aren?t like most ratebeerians. Not too badat all.

Cloudy yellow with a creamy, small white head. The citrus nose was more like a citrus scented dish detergent. Lively carbonation but lacking in any appeciable flavor. Like drinking lemonade from a soapy glass that wasnít rinsed well.

Hazy, golden yellow color. Looks and smells like pineapple juice. Also smell of flowers and kool-aid. Tastes sweet and some grain. Little bitter at the end. Its actually really good. It tastes like blue moon ice cream. Good beer for the lady in your life.

Hazy golden orange color with a nice white head. Aroma is earthy malt and citrus. Flavor is wheat and lots of citrus. Sweet orange zest, grapefruit and the coriander comes through. Surprisingly good and definitely a good cold summer brew.

Bottle. Interesting enough hazy light orange color with an initially large topping. Thought the flavor was primarily orangey ... think folks who like a slice of fruit with their beer would enjoy this very much ... and even I, who usually doesnít, found this to be a nice light drinker with a fruity twist. One of the better Leinie offerings, actually.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2006 Had this one bottled. Not bad. A nice golden orange pour with a very thick, white head, nose of lemons and bread, a pronounced barley taste that was unusual but very welcome. Fruit Loops in the nose and taste. Yep, Kellogs Fruit Loops. Weird, but delicious.

A nice summer beer. pours a cloudy golden color with a thick white head. The aroma is nice, but the flavor is a little too citrusy. I had this beer warm and cold. You have to have it cold because if you have it warm it tastse like a spoiled orange juice. Overall this beer is good, cold, and especially in the hot summer.

From a bottle, pours a cloudy straw-golden with sizable white head. Citrusy aroma with hints of coriander. Mild iniital wheat taste followed by surprising depth of tastes, including grapefruit and yes, coriander. Some hops show up in the background as well. I didnít have high expectations for this beer but was pleasantly surprised by how good it is. Iíd definitely buy it again.
