NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2006 New in town. Got a six pack at Albertsons. The aroma invokes a picturesque stroll through an Orange Grove. The sweet yet subtle scent of Orange Blossoms lingers in the air and you imagine you can even smell a bit of the bitter notes of orange peel and snapped citrus branches. Then you step on the skunk lurking below your feet and he sprays you with his own special social retardant. So to recap: oranges, orange blossoms, citrus branch and nasty skunk musk. The body is a hazy pale yellow the color of a sick canary and holds a diminishing pinky sized white head. The flavor offers sweetened cereal grains in the fore reminiscent of the sugary milk slop you’d gulp down after finishing your Sweetum Smacks as fuel for a vigorous Saturday morning of cartoon watching. Some orange dreamsicle notes appear bursting with artificial orange and cream. The effect is very manufactured in that the flavors seem chemically induced through additives rather than from the brewing process. But, I guess brewing is chemistry. I’m not saying the sweetness IS artificial it very well may not be...but it does TASTE artificial. It’s not awful, but it is sickly sweet and rather reminds me of some poorly made fruit beers with its sweet intensity.

If I were to drink several beers in a short sitting without thinking about them much this would be the beer. I’d rather have an overpowering watery orange flavor in my mouth than ass du skunk other cheap beers. Refreshing beer. Not spectacular, too much orange, nice. It’s nice.

This was a pretty nice refreshing drink after my hockey game tonight. Very much a Wit-styled one with the coriander and oranges in the nose and oranges in the body. Very cloudy, nice lacing. THanks Ron for the trade.

Pours amber/yellow with a strong citrus aroma. Honestly, this beer is like drinking a glass of grapefruit juice. A few other subtle fruit notes, like blueberry, orange and lemon. Fairly good.

hotstuff (5278) - 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.

donvitozou (141) - memphis, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2006
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.

jgentgesdo (694) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 20, 2006
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.

jgd0608 (187) - Zeeland, Michigan, USA - SEP 18, 2006
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 (4974) - 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
