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.

Shared bottle. Pours a somewhat cloudy gold with a small white head. Aroma of malt and grain. Taste is wheat, malt, and some citrus. Older bottle probably not at it’s best.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from old notes. Pours a hazy yellow gold color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have pale wheat malts, light bready character, mild orange and honey, this is just pretty bland and unexciting.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2015 This is a super good beer. Really fits my style. Kinda hard to find and rate because I got in the Eugene track bottle but I dig it.

Nice smooth wheat. Pours with glad head and a great orange aroma. A nice sweet taste hits in the Beginning finished with a full wheaty taste. A nice cloudy orange color of unfiltered wheat. Very similar to blue moon. Easy drinking.

"2013 as Tracktown Honey Orange Wheat. Would make a decent summer brew but its pretty simple. As advertised, light honey and orange, not much to the beer outside of that..."

So this is hard style to do well, in my opinion, props to Rogue for giving it their best shot...Clear (which is odd for a wheat ale), no lacing. Light, not bad for what it is. Drinkable, but the training wheels are definitely on it, it’s for the uninitiated I suspect. Medium-light carbonation, very light mouthfeel, am I even drinking?

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.

Had the Eugene city honey orange wheat... Aroma is lemon zest, flavor of light wheat, notes of honey and citrus... Okay
