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.

I could definitely notice the wheat in this beer. a cloudy orange color to it. it has a floral smell to it. The mouthfeel and taste was something to be had in my opnion, I truly wasn’t impressed with this beer

12 ounce bottle from Liberty Beer in Pittsburgh. Strong yeast scent and more than enough bitterness. Not that great.

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.

12 oz bottle. Bottled on 05/11/16. From the Arcadia Ales, Kalamazoo, MI. Hazy orange color with a tiny white head. Tangerine, fruits, sweetness, toffee and malt in the aroma. The flavor is fruits, orange, tangerine, sweetness and malt. Fruity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Evolutionary (523) - 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 (6887) - 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.
