2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2009 Bottle from BevMo. Hazy orangish-golden color with a white head, more or less how it should look. Aroma and flavor are lots of tangerine and wheat, what you would expect. Not great but it does a good job of being what itís supposed to be. Light, crisp palate with medium-high carbonation.

Pours orange, a very weird orange color. White head sits on top.
Smells like orange juice that sat out way too long.
Tastes worse than the manure the tangerines were grown in. Very overpowering "tangerine" flavor. The beer was chalky, and had very little characteristics other than wheat and orange extract.
The label should be a dead hooker choked to death with a bunch of wheat straw with a sinister tangerine running out the door and zipping up his pants.

Draft - Poured a nice orange-amber in color with a small white head that faded to a very thin covering over the beer. Aroma is fairly strong of tangerines and lightly roasted grains. Flavor retains the strong tangerine character with the wheat filling afterwards. Palate is a bit thin, but does not detract from the overall lightness of the beer. I liked this...

Bottle as a fantastic extra from ROBORB. Thanks man! Pours a bright orange color with a very short lived white head. Smell is very strongly of tangerines and is very citrusy. Taste is more strongly of wheat with lighter notes of the tangerine flavor and light finishing bitterness along with lingering wheat. Mouthfeel is thin to medium with prickly carbonation. The tangerine is definitely prominent in this beer and I enjoyed it.

Bottle from Knightly Spirits for my wife. Thanks to her for letting me get half. Pours an orange gold, the color of tangarine flesh. The aroma is light and full of sweet tangarine fruitiness. The flavors are the same. Thin mouthfeel, light, refreshing, fruity and actually comforting. Reminds me of a tangarine mimosa. I like this a lot, and I am surprised. This would be great for a day at the beach. Nothing bad about it.

Bottle, thanks Daknole! Bright orange with slight haze. Aroma is of tangerine, almost candy-like but remains pure with pith and skin aromas too. Light body. Strong tangerine flavors are pure with a slight wheat taste in the finish. The start and the finish of the beer are totally different. Itís interesting.

Bottle. Orangish pour with a light head. Aroma is purely tangerine. Smells like a satsuma tangerine actually. Flavor is a mix of tangerine, wheat and some tartness. Damn fun beer, but not amazing.

Dull beige. The aroma is all zesty tangerine. Light wheaty taste, with hints of tangerine. Itís ok, but the concept is kind of limited.

Holy Tangerine bomb batman. If you think tangerine soda sounds good, than this is for you.

22oz bottle scored at the Breez Thru in Milwaukee. Iím 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 donít get much wheat in it, it is dominated by sweet soda tangerine. Just doesnít 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.
