Beautiful color and a pleasant sour note, but otherwise dreadful. Harsh and medicinal. Once again shorts went heavy handed with the peppercorns probably. I do not know how they achieved such a harsh brew really.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2010 the first time i rated this i couldn’t really remember it due to being too drunk when i had it. i revisited it tonight, and am lowering my rating very slightly... nice orange droplets at the very end of the pour, tons of floaties. big time citrus flavor going on. unique, as most short’s brews tend to be. worth a try, not there are better barley or wheat wines out there.

Tastes very sharp. I like it. This would be good with with a cheesecake. Nutmeg like a mug with peppercorns.

Aroma is sweet fruit, oranges, hops, peppercorn comes at the back for sure. Appearance is also orange, super light orange head. Taste is sour orange, light hops, grapefruit, and the peppercorn spice is subtle but nice at the end. Mouthfeel is nice, solid carbonation, somewhat thick, got a great orange peel aftertaste. Overall, this beer is on point. I am a huge fan, and I am happy with how many beers Short’s will bottle. Cheers!

No mistaking the orange smell. And big orange taste too. Very tart to almost grapefruit lengths.

Oh, what a nose! Blood oranges all over the place both in the nose and the color which is amber with a litlte orange twist. LIttle to no foaming at all.
There is an unfortunate sort of maybe hoppy edge. I can’t put my finger on what else it might be. I’ve had blood orange juice and oranges before so I know the flavor and that isn’t exactly what this is. Maybe just the alcohol which in that case will be nice to age out of this one. The above comments came from drinking it very cold.
Now then, letting it warm , the flavors come out nicely although still a bit boozey. Mouthfeel is sublime and it is what it is described as...wheat wine with slight blood orange inclusion.

Pours reddish clear and slitly brown. Small white head.
Peppery, orange, coriander aroma.
Palate is thin, watery, tart, slight bitterness - probably from the zest.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma:Sweet orange, sweet malt, sweet hops in the nose.
Appearance:Dark honey color, very little head, low retention, low lacing.
Taste:Lots of orange, some grapefruit rind in the foretaste. Very sweet. In the midtaste, the hops come through a little more. The hops are all citrus. The slight orange tang continues through the aftertaste.
Palate:Light to medium body, a little bit abrasive on the back of my throat as I drink.
Overall:This is an incredible and complex wheatwine with amazing orange flavors.

Fantastic peppery orange aroma! Copper orange color with a small white head. Has a pleasent orange flavor for a beer and kind of spicy too. Here comes the bad part. The body is very light and watery. I am very happy to try it. If you like a full flavor light beer you will like this one.
