COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the style of a mid-19th century English Festival Ale, this unfiltered wheat beer displays a translucent orange color topped with a creamy, white head. Wheat enhances the mouthfeel of the beer and produces pleasant bread-like notes while Michigan honey provides a caramelized sweetness in the flavor profile. This beer is spiced with orange peel and coriander and small amounts of three hop varieties pleasantly counterbalances the sweetness.

had high expectations, but was let down. didn’t really smell like much, head was too thick, but great color. Thought the orange and coriander would come through, just tasted rather bland.

Slightly cloudy orange beer with a thick foamy bright white head. Nose of mandarin orange, sweet unbaked dough, and something floral. Flavor is semi-sweet with candied orange, mirin, and honey finished with a slightly astringent bitterness. Easy to drink, this is a pleasant summer beer with a decent amount of flavor for the style.

Sometimes, I just disagree with ratebeer and critics in general. I would drink one of these or an Oberon everyday of the summer, and for me because I don’t drink beer super often if I would turn to this regularly that matters. The flavor and aromas are just really pleasant. It’s a really nice beer for me.

Evolutionary (503) - Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2016
Bottle from andersons. Nose is weak and a bit too spicy for style. Body is thin and somewhat weak. Usual citrus rind on top of toasted cereal wheat with a bit of coriander. Not amazing but not awful. Goes well with the heat.

mansquito (6439) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 9, 2016
Pine Box Rock Shop, Brooklyn tap: pours light orange with a white head. Atoma is orange and spice and wheat beer whatever. Taste is lightly spiced. It be a bit sweet. Would not know that it has as much alcohol as it does. Not a bad beer but uninspired. A relic of a bygone era.
