2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. I got out my shot glass and poured 1/4 of an oz of this beer into it then poured the rest down the sink. I wanted to get a good feel for the beer, the same way Sean does for his ratings so I figured a quarter of an ounce would be an appropriate sample size. Pours out an orange color without much of a head. The smell is great, very fruity, full of tangerines (obviously). The problem with this beer starts when you drink it. It is sweet, and different, and kind of heavy for a wheat beer. The taste is kind of like an artificially sweetened with orange version of Oberon that isnt as good. My quarter oz went away in a hurry, thank god for my nice Sean-like sample size on this one. Just think, I could have shared this with 87 more people.

1.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 650 ml. Hazy orange-amber with a soda-pop head that fizzles away in about 5 seconds. More bubbles keep trickling upwards, but this one has no retention whatsoever, not even a small ring! Aroma is of tangerine and orange peel. Flavor starts as fresh tangerine, turning to the more acidic-astringent peel and maybe some wheat. No wait; there is no wheat taste in this beer. Aftertaste is lemon juice tinged with tangerine. More than a hint of tangerine: this knocks you over the head with a bushel basket of tangerines. Light body is dry and astringent like chewing on the peel of a tangerine.

What a dissapointment. I enjoy the smell of tangerine so much that my mouth was watering at the first sniff. Unfortunately this beer tastes like bad sour tangerine on top of unsweet wet cereal. Nothing else to say.

22oz bottle from Casa de Oro Liquor. Pours golden orange with a small, wispy white head. Bursting with fresh tangerine aromas, then turns to orange soda. Flavor was tangerine and yeast with some hops.

Smells like orange soda, sorta looks like it to. Super high carbonation. Thin flavor, no hop flavor at all. No alcohol taste or presence at all. Best described as orange soda mixed with malt liquor, but in a good way...kinda

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is VERY tangerine like but almost like a popsicle. The appearance is hazy orange gold with a nice head. The flavor is also tangerine like with malt and some hop bitterness. The palate is thin. Overall nice but gets you excited for no reason.

Bottle. Pours with an orange color and a nice head. Aromas immediately show citrus, orange and probably tangerine. Initial flvor impression is of very strong bitter citrus. Eases up a little bit later, but I still think that the citrus is too strong and subdues any wheat or yeast notes. Less would have been more.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2008 Had on draft at Newport Pizza and Ale house. Pours a nice rusty gold hue with a tangy tangerine and wheat nose. The flavor is head on citrus blended perfectly with just the right amount of wheat grain. Mouthfeel is light and makes for an extremely refreshing beer, my newest favorite from the lost coast stable. Great brew!
