Taster at the brewery... This is a orange creamcicle of a wheat beer... Light and refreshingly...

Draught at Papago, 12/28/15.
Very clear honey-colored beer has an immediately receding white head.
Vanilla and strong, but not offensive, orange character in the nose. Sort of candy corn-like. There’s some wheat and other cereal character behind it that somewhat saves the beer, adding a bit of beer character.
Flavor is full of orange and vanilla sweetness. It’s not syrupy or cloying, but a bit artificial and somewhat dominant. Heavily watery texture could certainly stand to have a bit more depth and the carbonation needs to be tightened up, especially considering this is a wheat beer. No real flaws, though.

Can: Pounded 3 of these on a hot summer day in Phoenix and I must say it was pretty enjoyable. Cloudy gold with a small white ring head. Definite orange in the aroma and flavor. Fruity is the key word but its not annoying.

This is an orange Creamsicle bomb for sure, nothing subtle about it. And vanilla. I remembered it being more natural and subtle years ago, but that could just be my memory. I enjoy this now and again. Personally I prefer Hangar 24?s Orange Wheat in this genre.

Can. Cloudy orange pour with a very small head that fades to pretty much nothing. Aroma is very wheaty and packed with vanilla. Some orange and nuts too. Tastes decent. Fairly sweet, lots of vanilla and wheat, moderate orange. Rough mouthfeel. Kinda odd but still decent. Would be better if they went easier on the vanilla and sweetness.

shrubber85 (9612) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Can. Orange, vanilla, and creamy wheat malt aroma. Hazy golden yellow with large head. Sweet orange-vanilla, wheat malt and mildly bitter herbal flavor. Pleasant easy drinking beer.

Tmoney99 (12726) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 25, 2015
Draft sample. Poured clear amber orange color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate to heavy sweet orange aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Heavy sweet citrus flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. Refreshing sweet beer.

joeneugs (4872) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 12, 2015
On tap at Artistic Table. It pours a clear golden color with a big white head. The aroma is strong with wheat and sweet orange creamsickle. The flavor has peaches, and more orange creamsickle. Wheat comes through a little in the finish. A bit on the sweet side, but still fairly enjoyable. At least it delivers on the deScription.

Pour on tap at Union Barrelhouse, slightly hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought orange juice, slight sweet vanilla, biscuit, bread into a slight hint of yeasty notes. Taste was a mix of yeast, bread, biscuit into some orange, slight white fruit into a hint of sugary vanilla, finishing sweet.
