2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
22oz bottle scored at the Breez Thru in Milwaukee. I’m pretty open and into fruit beers, so I was eager to try it. Disappointing. Semi-murky brown orange color. Pretty much no head, though it doesnt lack carbonation. I don’t get much wheat in it, it is dominated by sweet soda tangerine. Just doesn’t work for me at all. The tangerine flavor is pronouced, but it is too artifiicial tasting. The backbone of the beer is too thin and lacks any depth.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at Burger Bar in Las Vegas. This brew is a cloudy dark golden color with a thin and fizzy white head that burns away quickly. Filmy rings of lacing on the glass. Sweet tangerine and spices in the nose. Light body with tangerine and orange rind flavors, plus some light spices. The finish is fruity with a short malt aftertaste. An average novelty-type fruit beer overall.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lost Coast Tangerine is a hazy and sparkling ale that lingers between light amber and deep gold, with a hue leaning toward peach. It has a small white head that fades to a film and stays put to leave nice lacing on the glass. It has a bright tangerine aroma, with a note of lemongrass. It is medium bodied, quite bubbly and extremely smooth. The finish is clean. Tangerine is quite prominent in the taste. It is moderately bitter and well balanced. It is a nice, sound, refreshing and satisfying wheat ale serving as a backdrop for tangerine. There is a clean, short, tangerine peel finish. What a great idea. Rather than just trying to emulate citrus with hops, they just went for it.

I’m not going to go into the gory details.
This is good refreshing tangerine pilsner.
The tangerine is light and bitter.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clearish golden orange coloured body with a very thin white head. Aroma of fresh tangerines, clementines and a bunch of fake (think equal) sugar. Medium-bodied; Strong malt/wheat flavour with massive amount of metal, fake sugar and potent fake fruity flavours. Aftertaste still bitter from the fakeness all around - not too much pleasant here. Overall, if you’ve had an artifical orange extract/essence in cooking, then had this beer - you’d hardly notice a difference...the fakeness is unreal. Not really worth trying, but I suppose if it’s rare - try it, just don’t expect much! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Lee’s Discount Liquors in Las Vegas, Nevada on 07-February-2009, sampled at home in Washington.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a lighter amber color with a white head. Aroma is pretty much all citrus and tangerine and maybe just a hint of wheat. Flavor is the same with the overpowering tangerine flavor. This would be a decent summer beer.

Orange color with a slight haze and almost no head. Aroma was hold on to your hats...tangerine. Flavor was tangerine/citrus. Light bodied and crisp, I would love to try this again by the pool this summer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had on tap at Tu Tu Tangos. Very hazy pour of pale orange. Aroma was alllll citrus. Flavor was sweet malty grasses with a hint of citrus. I am not a fan of fruit beers, but this one was actually very drinkable. Of all the fruits, I think citrus goes well in beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Yardhouse in Las Vegas. Poured a cloudy dark gold color with a two finger white head. The aroma was tangerines. The flavor was slightly medicinal, but not overwhelmingly so. Wouldn’t drink this beer again, but my wife wanted to try it.
