2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy, light amber pour with a tall, chunky, off white head. Lots of floral and citrus in the aroma, a little banana and a decent amount of coriander. Taste starts off with tons of coriander and ascorbic acid, some dusty grain and citrus pop in, but mostly coriander and ascorbic acid. Light body, with a heavy, sharp and very blanketing carbonation. The high carbonation and the fact that it tastes like somebody crushed Vitamin C pills in it make this a little unpleasant to taste, but once you get past the weird tartness it isn’t that awefull.

Dark golden pour with a significant white head. Aroma is spicy wheat and tangy citrus. Mild and a bit flat in the mouth. Flavor is subdued clove, wheat, some sweet orange. Not nearly as much zip as I was expecting. Meh

Pours an opaque "rusty orange" with a white quickly dissipating head. Nose is slight hops, orange, wheat - all faint. Palate is dominateed by tartness with faint wheat. It is a different heffe.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a lsightly hazy rusty orange color with a two finger foam that does not stick around too long. Aromas are a tad subtle but full of wheaty spice and citrus. On the palate the hefewiezen qualities are very subtle and a tad watered down by the slightly heavy handed blood orange. Its not a bad beer its just a bit underwhelming and lacking a real focus in flavor.

On tap at the Great Lost Bear. Significant orange aroma. Cloudy orange appearance, with a little head. Cider taste, orange juice added to a wheat beer. Very wheaty character, not a hefe. OK drinkability.
