Well the most accurate discription of this brew was when someone said, "this tastes like a mimosa", they were correct. This brew pours a light yellow/orange with a normal wheat haze to it. Aroma is very tropicana. Taste is very thin and watery with a very light yeast taste, light on the wheat. The only major flavor in this brew was a big dose of orange juice.

A great summer beer. The aroma is light floral, and the flavor is nicely fruity, with a very present honey sweetness, and toasted malts, the finish has just a taste of mandarin orange. Perfectly balanced, could have gone completely the opposite direction, but instead it came out just right.

This is definitely an easy-drinking summer beer. The honey is clear in the flavor, nicely complementing what is really just a hint of orange. There's just enough sweetness to be refreshing instead of cloying and the wheat in the mash makes for a nice palate on which the honey and orange to work.

A pleasant surprise for the tasting, just not for drinking more than a single pint or even a taster. Nice cloudy pale yellow body. Crisp with hints of orange zest& plenty citrucyness. Lots of honey sweetness as well.
