Sample at The Source. This brew pours a slightly hazy bronze color with a medium thin white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, funky yeast and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of tart oranges, herbal yeast and doughy malt. The finish is mildly tart with a citrusy aftertaste. Pretty good overall. jkwalking05 (4743) - Arlington, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2015

Bottle. Cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aromas of straw, yeast, tangy and tart orange, and light funk. Flavor is the same. Light plus bodied, crisp and dry with a lingering tart citrus. jrob21 (3760) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Bottle from greens. The orange works well here with the tart saison sort of vibe. Finish is light and fruity citrus. Little lemon working as well. Aroma is wild hay and slightly tart. Solid again from these guys.

Mostly clear golden with a thin white cap. The nose has a earthy orange citrus tone as well as some sort of tortilla. The flavor is mellow and not as tart as other St Bretta offerings, but has a mild Brett undertone throughout bringing a barnyard tone to a earthy orange zest flavor with some standard but flavorful Belgian white ale bases. Good overall, earthy citrusy and just Bretty enough to be quite interesting. But not terribly funky. vyvvy (6563) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 10, 2015
Pours lightly hazy yellow ./ orange with a light white head. The aroma has smooth citrus with a little bit of a bite and is a bit rich. There is also brett funk, pale malt and citrus skins. It has a extremely crisp medium body with modest sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with citric bite, punchy vinegar, rich valencia orange, some pith and a bit of saison earthy funk. The finish is quite tart and is like a weird sharp alcoholic orange juice. Really nice. MetalNHopHead (2038) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Truly beautiful smells from the Valencia Orange variant of St. Bretta. Orange juice, orange peel, and spices. I’ve said far too often how I don’t like fruit in my Wheat Ales. Crooked Stave does it right by letting the fruit be an element rather than a dominating flavor. With flavors of clove, orange, wheat malt, honey, and tart yeast, St. Bretta Valencia Orange is a phenomenal summer treat. ajnepple (6824) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 3, 2015
375 ml bottle from The Source. Hazy golden-orange appearance with a white head. Aroma of orange peel, lemon zest, earth, spicy yeast and toasted grain. The flavor is starts out tart and zesty and moves to an earthy, yeasty, grainy finish that lingers. Light to medium body with ample carbonation. Good and refreshing overall, but a little below average for this series.
