Not my favorite style. I like orange citrus flavors but this one tastes somehow fake. More like juice. Too sweet.
Koperen kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt kruidig, fruitig, zoetig. Smaakt fruitig, honing, kruiden. AnnaEA (24) - Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 17, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2017 Pleasant, but non-descript. I would gladly have a growler of this at a 4th of July party, but I wouldn’t expect anyone to ask what was so they could buy it themselves.
My bottle also had a best-by date of 04-Aug-16.
Edit: 5/18/2017 I got in touch with Alpine, and confirmed that the bottle I got from my local IS out of date. I’ll re-rate this when I can get a fresh bottle. Great customer service from Alpine, and I’m going to complain at the bottle shop. b3shine (9255) - Indiana, USA - APR 18, 2017
Draft to taster at The Pint Room. Looks solid; a transparent golden orange with white head. Smells and tastes of honey, oranges, and ale yeast with a mildly bittersweet backbone. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Inoffensive, but underwhelming. fidelis83 (2535) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAR 23, 2017
Darkish orange, almost amber pour with a one finger, creamy off white head. Aroma is mostly honey and coriander, some bread, oxidation. Flavor is quite heavy in the honey department, but in a good way, a fair amount of coriander, but not as much as the aroma implies, nice floral notes, really nice orange blossom honey aftertaste, hampered, slightly by a slight metallic twinge. Medium body, creamy at first, then somewhat drying, light, soft carbonation. Good stuff, I really like the way it shows off the honey. dfinney23 (3424) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2017
Heavy on the honey and herbs, light on the beer itself. Needs more backbone.

Bomber. Deep honey golden with a short loved head. Mandarin aroma with malts and some honey. Mandarin and honey lead the flavor profile and there isn’t a lot more. Feel is too thin. gyllenbock (10025) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2017
On tap at Green Flash, Mira Mesa. A bit hazy orange with a small white head. Sweet with honey, some herbs, light fruit and some malt. The body was soft as was the bitterness. Nothing special.

Pours cloudy orange with a medium frothy white head. Aromas of peach, lactose, tangerine, resin. Taste is quite fruity with low bitterness. Mouthfeel is juicy and light bodied with moderate carbonation. kryon (3929) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2017

Bottle best by 4 Aug 16. What the fuck? Why did I buy this? Guessing it was supposed to say 17. Anyway, get a ton of DMS on the aroma. Was hoping for the nice citrus that it advertises, but there isn’t any to be found.
