1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle and served in standard pint glass: Slightly hazy orangy golden hue with a quickly disappearing head and no lace. The aroma has a huge tangerine extract character along with Bayer aspirin, hint of corn and rice by-products, not much else. The taste is twangy fruit but the chalky aspirin notes is overwhelming. Add some adjunct overtone and you have a brew that is basically undrinkable. Even the mouth feel is below average, watery and chalky. WOW, this brew just down right sucks. No wonder I waited this long to have this... down the drain this goes.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at The Roundhouse Taproom in Central Hong Kong. Pours a light yellow with a medium foamy white head. Smells like genuine tangerines. Not fake or rtifucially sweetened with sugar. This is a real fruit adjunct beer. Most brewers add sugar. Not here. So in other words its ok. The taste is malty and tangerine fruity and a bit soapy as these adjunct fruit beer tend to be but it still beats the full of table sugar claiming to be Belgians.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Matt! Pale straw with hints of gold & tiny white particulates floating around everywhere. Slight haze in the middle, topped with a white, foamy head. Aroma & taste are very much like an artificial orange drink... Almost like Orange Tang, but with even more of that dry, chalky, powder-y smell & taste to it. Starts off with a tart citric bite, quickly falls into an artificial & chalky orange drink mess. Gives your mouth that "just ate a vitamin" aftertaste. Still far from the worse thing I’ve had... but that doesn’t mean it’s good.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
For a fruit beer, this is much better than rated here. Nice citrus nose, and near perfect blending of fruit and wheat /grain backbone. This would be a nice summer thirst quencher.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 ml bottle bought at Soho Wines & Spirits in SoHo, Central.
Cloudy, hazy honey orange colour with some dirt-like yeast sediments; One finger head and crumpety off-white foam which lasts about 2 minutes; Very good sticky lacing with very little carbonation; Very fragrant sweet aroma of tangerine as soon as it was popped, with strong orange soda, sugar, light floral and light tangerine peels; Close to light sweet taste of light ale malt, with strong wheat, muted tangerine flesh and zest, orange blossoms, strong yeast, strong spices, light liquorices, lime and very herbal hops; Light body. Dry, crisp and slightly thick palate; Mouth feel is wheat ale blended with strong tangerine and orange / citrus flavours in the background. Not at all sweet not plain fruit juice, more like a well-mixed fruity wheat ale. Right-on dryness and crispness with lots of spicy herbal influence. Good… Hoppiness is strong orangey floral nose, very aromatic Perle’s spices and herbal taste. Good subtle liquorices in the background for some flashes of bitterness. Wheaty and fruity dry finish; Dry after taste, very crisp, fruity and herbal to mouth.
Comments: The tangerine in this brew may not be real fruits, but it works pretty well with the wheat ale for a right- on dry and crisp fruity palate. The fanta-like orange soda nose is the only minus here, everything else work out nicely. A perfect Summer thirst quencher!

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy, but not cloudy enough for a wheat beer. Head came and went, no lacing. Smell is tangerines. Taste is tangerines, almost too much of it, overstated, fake. Maybe a little wheat taste, maybe because I want it to be there. Watery on the palate. Almost could be called a beer cooler from a Macro.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft - bright sweet tangerine, almost like the hard candy. Hazy yellow with a creamy white head. Sweet tangerines, finishing with a slight pith bitterness. Candy not beer.

Pours a hazy yellow/orange with a small,fizzy head. The aroma is dominated by tangerine. There is some citrus in the taste, but it is pretty bland, disappointing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Surprising. Like a beer mimosa. Bitter and fruity but not overly so. Strong carbonation, little head. Smells very fruity and initial taste almost like thin orange juice. Then bitter beer taste.
