Pours hazy golden with floating yeast and medium white head. Aroma is fruity, orange, some citrus, sweetness, yeast, flour, some old onions. Taste is fruity, yeast, coriander, some citrus, light bitter notes, sweetness, sweet berries, a bit watery. Drinkable beer but yeast acts somehow strange.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2017 Pump, Hotel Wroxham Golden orange appearance, cloudy with slight frothy head. Served with slice of orange and no great surprise it has a strong citrus orange aroma. Taste is sweet and orange juice. Very smooth finish and very refreshing. Virtually tastes like alcoholic orange juice with a twist. Far too easy to drink, extremely moorish. This American import should catch on with the younger generation.

tezarak (113) - Lengnau, SWITZERLAND - FEB 14, 2017
Poured from a 35.5cl bottle. Hazy orange-brown with a few bits of sediment. Hoppy fruity aroma. No trace of Belgian yeast (pleasant supprise for me). Smooth, creamy, oily texture. Medium -full body. Light carbonation. Could be compared to an IPA with minimal carbonation and minimal bitterness.

7/20 really disappointing, not as I remember it. Quite lagery. Remembering it being a wheat beer with orange peel. It's still ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thejackpacker (216) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2017
Draught at rekordling hut, southbank London. Obvious flavours of orange (well, they shoved one in). Overly sweet for wheat despite being very passable.
