I like this beer, and I gotta tell you, I feel kind of bad for liking it. I mean, look at the name -- Honey Orange Wheat? What about that name makes a hop head like -- well, nothing really. And the first batch out of this place was just okay. They must have changed something in the recipe because it is a nice beer now. It has a lot more to it. The aroma is less like tang and now has a is now a subtle sweet wheat. The appearance is wonderful - nice light color but not too clear like they have filtered the holy goodness out of it. Flavor is really balanced, not too fruity. Palate is clean.

Smells great but the taste is weird and only average. Some malty wheat notes and a little bit orange. Medium body. Mild carbonation. Lightly sour.

On tap at Rogue Public House in San Francisco, CA. I wish this beer was a fraction as good as the description made it sound.

Rogue Ales, Track Town Ales, or Eugene City Brewery. They’re all the same, and they all make this beer. It’s not as good as the name suggests, unfortunately.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a semi-cloudy golden yellow color with a nice head of foam but is quickly gone. The scent is full of wheat and citrus fruits. The sweet smell of the oranges make for a desirable want to taste. There’s a nice orange and honey taste to this beer. It’s rather thin in texture and makes for a quick drink. No bad by any means but could definitely use some improvement for a bolder taste and texture. Great craft choice for a hot summer day!

22 oz bottle served in a snifter. Pours golden yellow in color with a small white head that quickly reduces to a ring. Virtually no lacing left behind, excepting a few spots. Has a pleasant aroma with hints of orange blossoms and honey but mainly of a light, bready malt and faint wheat.
T - Nice mix of malt and wheat for a foundation, with a subtle contribution from the honey and orange: I’ve had many APAs and IPAs with more ’orange’ flavor (from hops alone).
Low but adequate carbonation; a bit crisp; Fairly clean feel; light body but not particularly watery.
Overall: a fine lighter (but not "Light") beer for hot summer days. Refreshing. Should work well with mild foods such as most seafood, but a little too mild for some spicy hummus I had with it.

A good smooth, easy drinking beer. Not much going on other than that. There’s a reason there is a woman featured on the label...its for girls.

Bottle. This smelled absolutely awesome. However, after the initial deliciousness initial taste there was a distinct orange bitters taste. Overall quite drinkable if you don’t mind a little bitters
