3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at Papago 8/16/06: Pours to a slightly cloudy orange-yellow body with a medium, frothy, white head. The aroma shows off some pleasant fresh orange, sweet yeast, and very mild pale grains. Taste is sweet orange infused hefeweizen in a nutshell. It heavily featured the orange flavor, but I didn’t feel overwhelmed by sweetness or feel like it was syrupy. Light-medium bodied, medium carbonated, finishes with some orange and wheat flavors.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Wasn’t looking forward to a fruit beer, but pleasently surprised, it was good stuff. Lots of head, orange aroma. Head resembled inside of a creamsicle, body resembled outside of a creamsicle, smelled like a creamsicle, but in all serious, liked it a lot. Nice flavor, with the orange being present, but not overwhelming. Not the most complex beer ever, but did a nice job with it, and it’s very drinkable

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Papago Brewing Company. Hazy orange-yellow color with no lace. Pleasant aroma of rose hips and orange. Similar to the wheat wine, this one tastes similar to cream soda with vanilla, caramel, and orange notes. Strange, but decent.
