2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tallahassee, Fl.- Liquor Loft - 22 oz bomber. Pours a murky medium orange with absolutely no head - kind of lifeless. Aroma of an artificial orange drink - not juice - but the kind you find at a McDonalds birthday party. Flavor has that same vacant artificial orange-tangerine flavor overwhelms whatever beer likeness this beverage may have. Also find some hints of a Tequila sunrise in here - the grenadine aspects of it. Starchy mouthfeel. Not the most pleasant beer drinking experience.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: APR 21, 2009 Bottle. Pours and orange/gold relatively clear body with a very small white head. The nose is Dimatap orange overtop malty wheat. Flavor of rotting orange and wheat, some hints of seltzer water. Has a prickly mouthfeel, which could have been good if the rest wasn’t so atrocious. I know other people who thinks this has a good orange flavor, but I couldn’t get past the Dimatap impression. Ugh, you really couldn’t get me to try this again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy dark amber with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of tangerine, light citrus and sweet malt. Taste of mild tangerine, grains and fruit. Comes in at the lower threshold for a drinkable fruit beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Pours a clear, orange-copper body with a thin, meager head.
Smell: A bottle politely mentions a "hint" of tangerine, but, damn it, I say there’s more than a hint! A lovely, tangerine laden nose is what it is, friends.
Taste: A solid dose of wheat, but it’s mainly sweet, juicy tangerines. Sweetish at first, but then it gives way to more citrus and a light, vague bitterness. Citrusy all the way through to the end, babies!
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-low carbonation.
Drinkability: Just when I was griping about a lack of tangerine-based beers Lost Coast saves the day.

(Draught) Sampled at the Great Canadian Beer Festival 2008 in Victoria, September 2008. Very weird. Very disgusting. Tastes like Five-Alive mixed with orange Crush. Strange. Aweful. 5/2/4/1/8

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.
