So fresh and palatable. It goes down smooth, and it definitely has flavor.

A great standy, now made by Eugene. Great honey orange wheat beer, one of a few that have a real orange flavor not too much not too little. A craft product.

Pours a cloudy, slightly orange color. Has a wonderful orange aroma. Easy drinking and adding a slice of orange is the only way to drink this. Not as impressed when out of bottles but on draft this is a great beer.

This unfiltered beer is medium bodied with no harsh bitterness. It has flavors of honey and orange balanced with a nice medium-sweet malt character.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Right now you can only get this brew at Festivals or at the Rogue Public Houses. I had this brew at the Rogue Brewery in Newport Oregon. Here is my review: AROMA- the aroma was very inticing and I really appreciated the delicate floral notes brought in this beer; APPEARANCE- The brew had a slight hefe wiezen look to it. Unfiltered and cloudy with very little carbonation; TASTE- I really liked the taste of this brew. It was very very light and at only 12 IBUís, it is not harsh or bitter in the least; MOUTHFEEL - Light and smooth; OVERALL- this brew is a great one to kick back and not worry about anything. Damn fine brew in my opinion.

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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Lightly hazed, light copper body with a very thin, slightly fizzy, white head.
Smell: Soft aroma smelling of honey, light spice, basic barley, delicate wheat, citrus, and a few hints of flowers.
Taste: Light pale malts with a hearty, invigorating addition of crisp wheat and a medium amount of sweetness present. The additions of honey, citrus peel, and chamomile are all there, but are delivered fairly subtly. Faintly spicy hops with an overall clean (surprisingly low) bitterness. Transient traces of sweet honey and citrus prior to the drying finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A pleasant, summertime brew from Rogue sans the seemingly obligatory coarse Rogue bitterness. Wait. Was I the only guy who honesty liked this? Three times this month alone Iíve had entered a bar to hear: Thereís the guy who likes Somer Orange! Typically, itís followed by "GET HIM!" Speaking as the one guy who liked this beer, I must admit that I donít actively buy it, as itís not available in a six-pack (at least not in my area).

A solid beer through and through. Tall creamy haed that lasts. Good aromatics. Soft and chewy effers keeping itís freshness as it warms. Good flavor extraction and a long finish.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2009 The commercial description is pretty accurate. Smelled very refreshing and tasted the same. Could definitely make out the orange and honey and didnít find it to be too sweet which is what I was expecting. Went down very quickly, this is a very good summer (somer?) beer.

650ml bottle pours a cloudy pale gold ale in the tumbler with a puffy 2 finger cap. Light cabonation.
Aroma- a blast of sweet biscuity aroma hits the nose as the beer is decanted then you detect the coriander , chamomile and citrus peel...very nice nose to this witbier.
Tastes pretty much like it smells : dry, biscuit malts, light natural sweetness, some nutty chewy oat infusion, nice amalgam of spices, citrus zest and hops - all in great balance ....goes to a crisp dry almost puckering finish with a citrus kiss at the end.
A damn fine Witbier with some remarkably well constructed differences.
