Wow! Every bit as good as you imagine it could be. Mandarin nectar in beer form. Amazing how well it comes together. This beer blew me away. I’m surprised the scores aren’t better. I think it’s masterful.

Bomber from Liar’s club. Poured clear and golden orange with a really fresh fruit nose. Smooth citrus and light malt with nice mouthfeel. A very good afternoon refresher, perfect pairing with my cajon fries and french dip~

Smells like oranges. Hazy copper with a thin ring of head. Tastes of orange blossom with light spices.

pour is transparent golden orange with a creamy white head and some large bubbles. Nose is heavy pilsner grain, lightly toasted, with light notes of citric orange and a honey tinge underneath. Taste is more balanced, the honey gives it a creamy body and adds gently to the toasted grain. Also some caramel malt notes, sweet but well attenuated, with citrus notes and a bit of herbal hops. Very interesting beer, nicely balanced and well done.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 2, 2005
Pours a deep golden yellow, generous white head, decent lingering. Mandarin and coriander dominate the aroma. The citrus is deep enough to almost be grapey. Light body with pungent mandarin flavors, tempered by other spices. Coating mouthfeel, but not chewy, more like fruit pectin and yeast esters causing it. Some minor hop notes supplement the fruit character. A nicely balanced fruit beer, but I feel it could benefit from a greater malt backbone. This would drive the sweetness to being more beer-like instead of fruit drinkish.

On tap at pizza port. Clear golden amber with a fizzy white head. Citrus orange and honey aroma. Bready citrus, spice, and honey taste with a crisp yeasty finish.

Brilliant clear golden with a thin tight white head. Pleasant nose with a lovely orange zest and wheaty coriander tones, and loads of honey. Smooth but full and sweet honey flavor, lots of wheat and pale malt and a little bit of Czech malt on the background as well, with a sturdy coriander and orange zest/peel on a sweet backbone. Finishes like a malty Pilsner with honey and orange zest.

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAY 6, 2016
This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a mild hazy burnt orange color with a semi-transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising at a nice pace. One finger-ed white foamy head dissipated at a nice pace. Moderate amount of messy lacing slides into the beer. The smell starts off with the sweet mandarin orange over top of some orange zest (lightly spiced) then the coriander echoes in nicely underneath. The taste follows the smell nicely. Zesty to sweet orange aftertaste. Delicate lightly spiced finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sessionable feel to it. Carbonation runs fairly light. Bitter to harsh feels seem decent. Overall, as a "herbed/spice/vegetable beer" it definitely works. I’d have again.

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2006
Light orange body with thin white head. Aroma is citrus hop and orange. Solid fresh honey comb flavor like it was out of the bee box. Light orange cream balance. Smooth sticky palate. I really dig the honey in this one.
