On tap. At the Smoking Pig, in St. John, NB. Pours a cloudy orange colour with a thin white head. Aroma is citrus, orange. Taste is orange. Not a bad beer overall.

Pale cloudy yellow pour. A little yeast and spice on the nose, plus a lot of orange citrus. Basically the same for the flavour. I find the amount of orange flavour overwhelming, especially considering the word "orange" is nowhere to be found in the name or on the packaging. If it were called "Rickard’s Orange," I would give it some slack. However, it tastes to me like half a glass of mediocre wheat beer topped up with cheap orange juice. I’ve been in bars where they serve it with an orange slice and only women will drink it - I don’t see why anyone takes this beer seriously. But that’s just my opinion - if you love wheat beer and you love orange juice, maybe this is your thing.

Draft - Orange citrus, grains and and a yeasty sweetness. Cloudy yellow with a frothy white head. Taste is very mellow citrus and wheat with a honey like sweetness. Bland but not bad.

Pours a cloudy light Orange with a thin head. Smells of citrus and yeast. Taste is a bit watery with hints of citrus. Low carbonation. Refreshing. Good with Orange.

A very bright aroma is this beer strongest characteristic. Strong citrus notes followed by a nice bitter orange flavour rests on the palate. This is a very refreshing summer type beer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bright aroma, little bit of spice, almost mild pepperiness. Not the orange aroma I was expecting. Appearance is a hazy, ugly colour, how can I describe it? Almost like a dirty orange yellow. Head died fairly quickly and there’s not much lace. Taste is all right, hints of orange maybe. Not a lot going on there. Feel is fairly thin, not a solid beer throughout.

This is an enjoyable brew. Love to get it on tap at my favourite watering hole, The Dawghouse in London, On. It’s fruity, light, and refreshing. Love it served with a slice of orange. Better than Shocktop in my books.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
For better or worse, here is Molson’s wit. Spicy yeast aroma that’s citric in a funky kind of way. Doughy as well, in the background, Traffic light yellow color, opaque of course. Tastes sugary and artificial, not much spice interplay. My Montreal Steaks have more coriander. A touch of zest on an otherwise flat body. Not as good as Blue Moon, which is a passable wit, but better than any of AB’s Shock Tops.

Perhaps not surprisingly, very similar to Blue Moon. Seems a bit more fizzy but could be my imagination.
