Quality product. Nice Tangerine. Not overdone, just right. Great aroma, good depth. A good alternative to Rogue Honey Orange, and cheaper.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Holy tangerine, Batman, they arenít kidding. The aroma on this is nothing but tangerine and some peel. The flavor on this is so citrus and tangerine that when mixed with carbonation it tastes almost exactly like diet orange soda. There is also just a hint of malt and hops, but itís basically soda. Extremely high carbonation to boot.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bomber- pours a cloudy dull orange with thin soapy head and little lacing. Nose- big orange juice, five alive beverage smell that overpowers any malt in the nose. Taste- stale fake orange juice. Has a very mineral dryness to it. Little flavour from the malt. A screw driver would be much more satisfying if one was looking for an orange flavoured adult beverage.

The fruit beer has a great tangerine smell and delicious orange flavor. It is slightly cloudy, like a wheat beer, but amber in color. It gets even better as the temp. goes up.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy amber with a small white head. the aroma has tangerines in full effect and not much of anything else - juicy, tart and citrusy. Medium crisp body with some gentle sharp carbonation. The taste has crisp wheat, some spiciness, a touch of mineral notes and the tangerine is much more in the background than it was on the aroma. The finish is very short lasting. Decent beer.

US trip Aug/Sept 2009 - Notes indicate this one was a weird tasting fruity wheat beer - orangey with some shortness. Not unpleasant, but weird

Bottle. WOW the nose is unexpectedly full of tangerine ("hint" my ass), half juicy, half powdered. Light wheat as well. Cloudy yellow-orange with a sudsy, metallic beige head. Taste is more of the same, lots of tangerine but with more wheat and a dulled bready note. Zesty, tart medium body. Better than expected, and spectacularly fruity (in the Way of the Juicy Juice), definitely worth a try.

Bomber poured a clear orange amber with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of tangerine, wheat and a hint of honey. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of wheat, light tangerine and light honey with a crisp dry tangerine finish. A great summer beer!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2010 Shared 12 oz. bottle at Lunar Brewing Co. and poured to a hi-ball sampler glass. The color was a light orange/straw, and the head was some off white foam that fell off very quickly to a ring and some light film with not much noticable lacing. The aroma was pleasant tangerine, sweetness, and some light grain. The flavor was light, with less intensity than the nose. Refreshing brew, but came off rather watery. My next experience with this beer was a draft version, served to a shaker at the Tribes in Mokena, IL. The color was a cloudy, apricot hue, with almost no head or lacing. The nose was candy sweetness and tangerine, almost Kool-Aid-like. The flavor added a light medicinal hint and the carbonation was lively, but with a little Alka-Seltzer taste. Iíll leave the rating as is, but the tapped version was not at all redeeming.

650 ml bottle from Bevmo. Pours a cloudy orange color with a very small fizzy white head that soon dissipates to zilch.. The aroma is rich with tangerines and oranges that have sort of a Tang like quality. The flavor was a bit disappointing, sort of like a watered down Orange Crush with some light character. The mouth-feel was thin and watery, with light carbonation. The finish was short and dry with a bit of lingering orange peel. Overall Impression? This needs more zing.
