3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Hazy off yellow, no head. Kinda ugly for a beer. Aroma is lemon, honey, orange peel and light hops. Taste is initially hop bitterness, followed by spicy orange citrus. Hop profile is leafy, earthen, bitter. Finish is dry, bitter. Light bodied. Not very agressive. I love the bottle though, a great tribute to Eugene’s celebrated running culture.

Bottled and picked up at the Rogue public house in Portland. I had this on tap (sample) there about a month ago but didn’t bother rating it since I had this bottle. Hazy yellow with a small and diminishing fizzy head. Aroma is honey, oranges, spices, not much else. Light bodied, not a lot of beer here. Somewhat interesting flavors, but overall boring.

On tap at Rogue Public House, Portland. Cloudy green gold colour with thin white head. Fruity wheat, plenty of orange in evidence, but then not much else. Refreshing, but just a little dull.

22 oz bottle into a Snifter glass. Pours a cloudy yellowish orange with a very thin white head. Aroma smells of a light orangey yeast note. The flavor is nice and refreshing, quite light. At first it brings on a sweet honey touch that mixes into an orangey (almost candy like) body. From the orange, a thick wheat flavor that has hints at a Belgian Wit step in and move it into the finish. It’s very different... I enjoyed it!!

Draught at Old Chicago in Coralville, IA. Hazy yelow-orange color with thin white head that laced the glass. Smells of subdued orange. Flavor is much more complex, a mixture of orange, sweet cream, and subdued coconut. Very interesting.

Unlike most Eugene City brews, this beer was a little unsatisfying. From a boring appearance to a fruity, bland flavor, it is a weak link among the myriad beers at the Eugene City Brewery.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle that poured a hazy straw color with a head that immediately dissipated and zero lacing. High carbonation with small bubbles. Aroma of wheat and barely a hint of orange or honey. The taste is interesting, I can taste citrus and some sweetness, but there seems to be an overwhelming taste of vanilla. It has a very light mouthfeel and is somewhat watered down. I have had this beer at least a year ago and had a better experience than I am currently having. My suggestion is you drink it on a very hot day...it will go down a bit better.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Rogue, Portland. Nice amber color....a bit or fresh orange peel on the nose. Taste is sadly not as full as I had hoped. I get a bit or orange marmalade taste, along with wheat, but not really any honey. It has very tiny bubbles, which give it a very effervecent feeling....like Pelligrino...which is a bit odd. It’s really not much beer flavor, more like a sparkling water with a hint of beer. Disappointed I must say.
