Bomber. Now denoted as Track Town Honey Orange Wheat Ale. Sweet aroma of honey and light orange. Maybe some dusty wheat. Hazy golden color and a white head that wasn’t much and then was less. Starts a bit thin bodied. First there is some complex stuff. The orange is immediately noticeable, there seems to be a sweetness that’s arguably honey. A bitterness that could be orange peel oils. Tastes of wheat and yeast. At the finish there is something in the back of the mouth that might be hop bitter, but it could be citrus oils. Drinkable. It is what it is.

From a 22 oz bottle this poured a cloudy orange with a medium white head the left minimal lacing. Nose is mostly orange peel with a touch of yeast. Mouthfell kind of fizzy and flavor far more complex than the nose with orange, coconut, honey, and spices. Finish shows a hint of hops. This is a very decent fruit beer.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 7, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2009 On tap at El Bait Shop. Pours a cloudy pinkish yellow color with a thin white head. The orange flavor really blooms in this one at the end. Discernable hop bitterness and wheat flavor. When it warms up, I smell a coconut aroma. UPDATE 7/2009: In the bomber bottle. Still an underwhelming beer. Could have much more fruitiness to make this work.

Strange mix of flavors that actually worked pretty well together. Not much of a wheat ale but the honey accents and hints of orange really made this a light and sweet, crisp drink. Very refreshing - just like the logo indicates!! ha ha. Definetly worth a try.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2007
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.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - DEC 12, 2006
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.

harrisoni (15047) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2006
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.

BuckeyeBoy (3609) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 8, 2006
On Tap at Rogue Brewer’s on The Bay Newport OR. pours out a Hazy light orange topped with a white head. Aroma of a little orange but not to much. Over all ok.

skoisirius (1845) - Earth, Washington, USA - SEP 11, 2006
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!!

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 20, 2006
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.
