I had this as Baird’s Shizuoka Summer Mikan Ale. 235ml for 700 yen at Tadg’s. Citrus hoppy aroma with a subtle touch of Mikan. Light smooth mouthfeel. Wow, you really get the mikan flavor, then a crisp bitter hop bite. A nice summer brew! drfabulous (8577) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Draught at Country Boy. Orange zest. Slight tang. Citrus fairly dominant throughout the beer and flavor. Nicely done. anders37 (27062) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity spicy citrusy aroma. Sweetish malty spicy flavor. Has a sweetish malty spicy finish with hints of citrus- brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 30, 2012
The pour is golden orange in color with a white head. A very citrusy aroma to the beer, and quite a strong tropical character too. Some sweet malt aromas, but really dominated by the fruit. The flavor is more of the same. Sweet tropical and citrus fruit character, a little bit of malt, sweet berries, and maybe just a hint of tartness to it. Really easy to drink.

Bottle. Hazy variegated golden brown color, large thick white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of blueberry and strawberry jam, sourdough bread. Taste is citrus, berries, white bread. Nice. Oakes (18828) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2012
Hazy blonde. The aroma is complex, fruity and a little spicy. The palate is light with delicate fruitiness. It has a nice dryness in the finish. Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2012
Bottle at abraxas. Hazy orange-sickle. Stale pale malts maybe the bottle is a bit old. The delicate orange is late to the party but fun to have. Light on the tongue. Fresh and delightfully dry. I wish I had a fresh one but even old it's good.

22 oz. bottle. $6 @ Binny’s, April 2011. Poured into a smallish pilsener glass, just to get a good look at the stuff. Pours hazy gold with red highlights, and a lot of particles floating around. If the base style was a Belgian wheat beer, this could be seen as OK. Big fizzy head. Smell starts off with golden ale malt, a bit of sour note. Nice, just not a BIG smell, I guess. Have to say, though, the taste is not that much of a much. Maybe I let it sit around to long. All I can really get is a Fat Tire with hard Mandarin oranges in it. Guess I should have had this fresher. WVHouseofBeer (1106) - West Virginia, USA - JAN 7, 2012
This was on the light side of fruit beers. Easy drinker and very refreshing. Pours a light hazy gold with a small white head. Aromas and flavors of tart citrus and a slight sweet malt presence. Fizzy carbonation and light bodied.
