Can sample at Sixpoint tasting at Beer&Beyond shop. Hazy orange with a huge head. Fruity (citrus and tropical fruits), spicy, yeasty and funky aroma. Sweet, fruity, with lemon, peach, grapefruit and pomelo notes, slightly sour finish. Light-bodied, easy drinking.

Can from The Wine Emporium 280914. What the? Pours like a thick orange juice and looks flat and murky. Tastes like fizzy orange juice. There is nothing beer like about this "beer". What were they thinking.

Opaque orange color in the glass without a head. The best way I can describe this is calling it a shandy made with a ton of grapefruit juice. Interesting at least.

16 oz can in a trade with Mg228. Thanks Mark. The pour is really something else. It looks like an organic brownish orange juice. I'm not too sure what to make of it. The aroma is well, quite different also. There is a fruit cocktail presence with some orange and grapefruit juices to go along with a little pear and apricot maybe. There is a lot of juice and not really any ale qualities. And then no. Just no. The flavor is immediately sour and metallic. The fruits turn into acidic gut bombs and don't recover. The ale never comes through. The mouth feel is thin and violent with no carbonation and the aftertaste is just acidic and metallic and lasts forever.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Orange juice looking brew with a minimal, white head. Aromas of fresh citrus and mango. Tastes of orange zest, hints of tropical mango, and lots of tart grapefruit. Bittersweet, fruit finish. Refreshing and somewhat tasty, but not really what I would call a beer. More like a summer cooler/shandy with over the top fruit flavors. Interesting.

Can from Mane Liquor. Basically breakfast juice..... There is no other way of putting it. Looks, smells and tastes like brekky juice. Probably the ultimate hair of the dog for a morning pick-me-up so bonus points for that!

Pours a cloudy orange and peach juice-like with no head and no lace. Nose is of fruit juice and light grapefruits. Taste is sweet but from all the fruit must, no traces of malt at all. More like a sweet grapefruit and citrus juice. Body is medium and carbonation really light, feels like straight fruit juice. Fruit juice fruit juice fruit juice. Bla bla bla. Just OK, not a beer in any way!

Can. This looks like a muddy bowl of papaya juice, with zero head. It is so thick with almost-pulpy, over-the-top tropical fruits to be off-putting to me, personally. This has zero attributes of anything I’d label as an "ale" -- it’s a marginally alcohol-laden fruit cocktail. Not my thing whatsoever. (#5646, 8/27/2014)

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is an interesting take on a beer mix a la a radler or a shandy but, unfortunately, it is also a bad take on that style--which is not really the best thing in the world to begin w/ if we are being frank here. It is headless and looks kind of like red grapefruit juice that started turning brown. It kind of tastes like a mild hefeweizen combined w/ hefty amounts of grapefruit and lemon juice. It is a little sweet but so tart that it more than balances it. It has a thick juicy texture and overall tastes more like an oversour version of Five Alive than it does beer. This is kind of a neat curiosity on one level but I don’t think it is going to appeal to either geeks or the general beer drinking public.
