Bottle from Casa De Oro Liquor. Slightly hazy orange/golden color. Sweet candy orange aroma, with a hint of graininess. Sweet fruity flavor up front. With a bit of bitter graininess towards the finish. Kind of reminds me of Fruity Pebbles.

On tap at Beachwood Barbecue. It was exactly what one would expect from the name. I think that the flavour from the tangerine peel was what turned me off a little. If that had been toned down, it would have been a delicious and remarkably refreshing beer.

Draft. Hazy orange pour with white head. Nose of orange peel and wheat. Flavor was crisp and clean with oranges not overpowering the malt. Surprisingly easy to drink.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Pours hazy, orange colout with fizzy carbonation but no real head. Smells like orange sherbert. Clean, easy to drink and definitely a tangerine flavour and not just random orange chemicals. Very refreshing summer beer.

Nose of light tangerine and wheat. Pours a golden tone with a decent thin head. The flavor is similar with nice natural citrus flavor and a soft wheat sweetness. Pretty clean and drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Mellow Mushroom...poured a gorgeous orange w/ a slight off white head. The aroma was like a tangerine punch to the face. Flavor was tangerine soda like w/ a splash of wheat, yeast and some hop bitterness. Overall, this was fruity and sweet, and I agree with Beerlando that one could crush a few of these after catching a few waves.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours quite cloudy and light, golden-orange in color. A foamy white head leaves thin, snake-like lines of lacing on the glass. Coming from Florida, I know the aroma of fresh tangerines when I smell it, and this comes pretty close. Pale malts and drying wheat seem to fade into the background while the sweet citrus dominates the nose. Flavors continue down this path, but get a bit more artificial tasting and a tad bit overly sweet. Some lemonaide enters the fold, adding a touch of sourness, but not much. There’s definitely a syrupy, extract sort of feel to the taste. Medium bodied and smooth on the palate, I could see myself crushing a few of these while beachside on a very hot day, but not much else. Decent.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Underground Bluz. This one poured a golden orange with a thin white head that dissipated quickly. This one has a very nice aroma of fresh tangerines, a touch of wheat and some spices. The flavor is similar with a the tangerine flavor mixed with some wheata touch fo spices and citrus in there. I was hoping for more tangerine flavor, but what was there did taste like fresh tangerines. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a lot of carbonation and slight watery feel to it. The flavor couldn’t quite live up to the aroma. This was very drinkable though, and my fiance really liked it.
