UPDATED: JUN 15, 2016 Pours an orange amber with white head. Medium body. Lots of malts, initial huge sweet citrus taste then a light hop flavor. Finishes bitter with lots of citrus. Christpuncher (3191) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2016
I'd have to say the best lager I have. Blood orange flavor dominates the bitter lager taste. Finished dry and citruscy. Pours cloudy orange with a thin cream head. Had at home. ilovedarkbeer (2748) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2015
Pours a reddish orange color with a small bubbly head. Notes of berries, sweat, and sweetbreads. Not really a fan. rondphoto (4489) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 24, 2015
on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber color, one-finger white head, a curtain of lace. Aroma of hops and light malt. Taste is malt with orange and grass that becomes more bitter on the swallow, but never gives up the tart citrus. A refreshing brew, full-bodied and satisfying.

Pours clear, dark amber with a small white head.
Blood orange scent.
Malty, orange pulp taste.....nice, deep orange-peel bitter.
Almost salty-feeling at finish.

Watching the artist sketch out this beer’s teaser on the chalkboard sold me more than the name. A fruity vibe makes this stand out as the most sessionable of that day’s drafts. If I would had not purchased about a half dozen other bottles for tasting earlier that day I might have tried to take some home. With Mikkeller’s recent announcements maybe it will not be long before this comes back.
Aroma / Appearance - A bronze semitransparent core glimmers as wisps of white head swirl atop like clouds blown across the sky in a strong breeze. Blood oranges, citrus, and other fruitiness tether themselves to a malty core that binds the whole profile together.
Flavor / Palate - Pulped blood oranges remind me of drinking fresh squeezed orange juice paired with a bowl of Wheaties. The smooth transition carries all the way to a long lasting finish. The light bitterness tickles the throat without being harsh. I’d have no problems downing a full pint of this.

Pours a deep golden with a good sized head & some lacing on the glass.
The aroma is distinctly fresh cut oranges... with some character of blood orange to it. it’s aromatic, one noted and inviting... tame, chill, neat... ok.
The flavor has plenty of blood orange but it’s also decently aggressive in bitterness. Which works just great considering the bitterness of the fruit. There are mild malty notes but generally this beer is about hoppiness accentuating blood orange character.
On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh).
Amber with an ever-do-slight reddish tint. Malt and hop aroma. Taste is a big complex - better than your average pilsner.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2014 Kentucky Fried Charleston Trip Beer #28. Draft at County Club. Pours a slightly hazy red-orange color with a large foamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of big citrus notes, pale malt, mild breadiness, faint herbal hops. The taste is citrus, pith, pale malts, hoppy finish. Medium bodied, fairly bright, slight lingering bitterness, good balance.

Very interesting. Bitter hoppiness right up front and throughout. Slightly sweet but has a really strange mouthfeel, light and sharp. I'm pretty much indecided about this one.
