A refreshingly tart and crisp hefeweizen brewed with local MA wildflower honey, orange peel and coriander, and fermented with the juice from over 1,000 blood oranges. It’s a cloudy, yet effervescent beer, with lingering banana and citrus notes balanced against a healthy wheat backbone and hoppy finish from Mt. Hood and Crystal hops.

Draught. That’s a nasty beer! Ok, I don’t like blood orange but this is just poor. Not much hefe here either, taste like an APA.

Draft at Yard House. Pours orange gold with an off white head. Aroma is orange, lemon, wheat, pepper. Flavor reminds me of Picon Biere. Slightly bitter orange over mild wheat.

Slumbrew Happy Sol has a thin, fizzy, quickly-dissipating head, no lacing, a murky (especially so, after the bottom caked contents are loosened and poured in), orange appearance. The aroma is odd, but it (and, the flavor) does improve as the beer settles out. I picked up honey, aged dankness, red soil, bread crust, and possibly some juice. Taste is of sweetness, that odd oldness, honey, bread crust, malt, and low bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium, and Slumbrew Happy Sol finishes wet and juice like. Reminds me of a mimosa. RJT

Super orange aroma with some banana. Hazy amber body with a minimal head retention. Pronounced orange taste with a soft yeast background. Soft sourness with a citrus tang on the tongue. Leaves a tart coriander sourness on the tongue. Pleasant and sweet to experience.

mcox90 (1719) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Sampled at Mass Brewers Fest ’14. Poured a hazy golden orange with bubbly white head. Wheat/clove aroma with the addition of orange peel. A lot of citrus in the flavor from the orange and lemon peel as well as the typical wheat and spice. Interesting mixture. Medium to light in body with a tartness on the tongue.

kinda like a beer with some tea like quality to it. the orange comes in real mellow and easy and is not noticeable at first and pretty much makes this beer. that and again it is kinda beery. interesting sweetness flowery and fruity yet tart with some light chalkiness.

weihenweizen (2391) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Refrigerated brown bomber from Red, White, and Bleu, bottled on date September 18, 2012, poured into a weizen glass. Pours translucent orange with small dense white head. Aroma is light orange, medium body, medium carbonation, and big bubble lacing. Taste is orange, honey, some coriander, and some cardboard. Pretty good, would like to try this again when fresh. Should have checked the date before the purchase.

Bottle big thanks to my friend TY for bringing this by as a birthday gift! Pour has a rich golden color with a thick two finger off white head that just would not stop. Aroma has malts, light grains, and spice. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation medium low. Flavor has wheat, grains, light spice, and some orange pulp on the finish.

kaser (4339) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2014
Orange clear pour from 22oz bottle. Tastes like orange peel and candy. Kind of a fruit pile.

ScipioA (401) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Pours out an appealing hazy orange with a slight pink tinge. Less of a head that you usually get with a wheat beer. The aroma is fairly bland with just little hints of spice. The flavor is much more interesting, yeasty banana, wheat tang, and some strong orange/fruit flavors. Smooth and with an Orangina-like aftertaste. Somewhat stronger of an alcohol profile than I’d desire in a hefeweizen. Overall a decent beer, I’d consider this a tastier alternative to a radler on a hot day.
