COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When the sun starts to shine bright – it’s time to find something shady. Our Blond is one hell of a thirst quencher. The Blood Oranges add just a touch of tartness that enhances the dry feeling of this beer. The 4.5% ABV means you can drink it all day long. This is THE beer for summer. No Wit or Pils about it.

Sampled at AC Beerfest (2014). Poured a hazy yellow color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of sweet sugary orange slices, lemon zest, and wheat. Taste of lucky charms cereal??, orange starburst, lemon zest, and wheat.

Ernesto987 (3358) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 31, 2014
sample at EBF, ah a blood orange beer. Tastes just like orange juice, very light and a very easy drinker. A little tart is overwhelmed by the orange sweetness but its ok.

ROGUE (2086) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 25, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with white foamy head. Pleasant orange aroma. Taste is a balance of light malt and the citrus orange flavor. Fairly dry finish. Thin body and crisp carbonation.

BillWyce (673) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2013
From notes: Poured hazy straw color with a 3-finger white head. Nice, light aroma of orange, with a touch of orange peel. Body is light and mildly oily, with a tart bite to the finish. Flavor of (blood) orange and orange peel. Some citrusy hops notes underneath as well. Refreshing, a good choice for hot weather.

dmac (3742) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 25, 2013
12oz bottle from Buy Rite Silverton. Poured an unimpressive slightly hazy nectar gold with a minimal white frothy head. Aroma is the best part if this beer, ruby red grapefruit segments, medium toast, grains and a touch of soap with some warmth. Medium mouthfeel with strong carbonation. Flavor is a big drop off from the aroma, notes of blood orange, toast, seltzer, ruby red grapefruit. Drinkable but needs some work.

EithCubes (4622) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle. Nose is quite potently filled with fresh oranges, really fleshy and vivid, just a little wheat underneath. Hazy, cloudy golden body with a soapy bright white head. Taste is semi-dry with light-medium but memorably rubbery bitterness, main flavor component the oranges: flesh, pith, and rind. Little bit of a mineral quality about, and a coating feel. Refreshes well enough but seems a tad heavy. Haven’t had a beer like this before, which really is saying something at this point.

pineypower (2402) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours out a hazy, watered down orange juice color with a small white head. Aroma is of lots of orange zest, like a fresh blood orange. Taste is light, lots of fresh orange zest, citrus sweetness, grain, light bready notes, very nice sweet/acidic notes, light bitterness. Man, this would be a great hot day beer.

callmemickey (2252) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2013
UPDATED: APR 29, 2013 Hazy golden yellow medium sized white head good lacing. Citrus. Grain and a bit of yeast. Simple but refreshing. Medium to light bodied moderate carbonation.

keepersj12 (2560) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2013
Nice for the hot weather. A bit of citrus in the aroma along with some bread. The flavor is light and refreshing with a hint of sourness, some citrus and the malt underneath. A good lawn mower beer.

boxofrane (1872) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2013
Draft at liberty union bar and grille. Pours hazy orange with no head. The aroma has funk and grapefruit. The taste is funky with some bitter orange and light grass.
