hotstuff (5158) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 22, 2006
Bottle. Appearance was a medium sized white fizzy head that mostly diminished, minimal lacing, cloudy, minimal carbonation, and a butterscotch hue. Nose was sweet, citrusy, oranges and coriander. Flavor was sweet, oranges, citrus, acidic, and somewhat thin and watery. Palate was smooth, sweet and somewhat watery. Light body.

from tap. thin white head, golden yellow and slightly hazy. smells citrusy and taste very lemony. hearty body for a light beer, not much wheat flavor. not an amazing or overwhelming beer by any means but it grows on you.

Pours cloudy yellow with small white head, minimal bubbles, no lacing. Nose is coriander and raspberries. The flavor is coriander(too much of this), some crisp hops, orange juice, raspberry, and very minimal wheat character. The orange juice predominates and in fact overwhelms this beer. Rather artificial long orange finish. Thin, quite sweet, oily mouthfeel. You can really taste the orange peel especially towards the end. It’s like a wit where they used too-fresh hops and about four times the normal amount of coriander and orange peel. Still, it is fairly refreshing, and not terrible.

Bottle. Orange, cloudy pour. Poured about 3 fingers of head, almost a spice cake sense of notes, with oranges notes. Great summer beer, smooth mouthfeel, and along to go with the notes, has the citrus taste. nice brew

muzzlehatch (4959) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 16, 2006
12x12 ounce bottles consumed from late July through late August 2006. Cloudy light gold in the glass with a small diminishing fluffy head and a bit of lacing.....blueberry dominates, oh my how it dominates the aroma, with cranberry and lemonjuice also present and always a fine sour wheat malt underpinning....I’m stunned that this isn’t listed as a fruit beer, it’s so overwhelmingly berry-scented....but when you get to the taste, the fruit definitely doesn’t stick around except in a subtle, background way as it softens the strong sour lemongrass-spicy character of the body....super-fresh and clean, immensely quaffable by the bottle or 6-pack, this was one of my biggest summer surprises, truly a well-made special from an otherwise fairly mediocre pseudo-micro. Get it if you still can.

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 15, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2007 quite tasty for a Leinenkugels...orangish, cloudy pour that is very similar to that of a Blue Moon...orange peel dominates the aroma and flavor, and finishes with a nice wheat backbone...nice palate, and a tasty summer brew

3.5
Hangover (1136) - oxford, Georgia, USA - SEP 14, 2006
Cloudy orange pour with an initially huge fizzy head that recedes to a slight film. Aroma is huge on orange with a bit of coriander. Crazy orange flavor, almost like drinking a sunkist soda. I’m not sure if it’s really that sweet and citrusy without adding some kind of artificial flavor or not. Somewhat tart, some rasberries in there and lively carbonation. Hell, I don’t care, I like it!

3.7
Glamdring (14) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Great and refreshing summer beer. This beer is golden in color with a medium head. Citrus aroma, and tastes kind of like liquid fuity pebbles. Goes down smooth and great with a lemon or an orange. I never thought drinking fruity pebbles would taste so good.

3.2
Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Poured a hazy yellowish color. Aroma was citrus, very nice. Taste was something perfect for the summer time - which is when I had it so yeah for me.

3.4
Ron (3956) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 10, 2006
I bought a six of this while visiting my daughter at WVU for parents weekend ’06’. I had the last 2 bottles the next day at end of summer block party. Perfect summer beer. Light body with citrus and raspberry flavor. Went down fast and easy. I enjoyed them.
