I was very happy to find this - the timing is perfect. Brew has a very light nose, one can only make out a dust of spice, and - lo and behold some orange - upon pour. The brew is a sparkling clear straw. The mostly lasting frothy white head has very light lace. I’m not ashamed to admit that at first I thought this tasted like a Kolsh. After a few more sips though, this reminded me of an Orval, but a little less subtly brilliant. The long lasting finish is both spicy and bitter. The brew has heavy acidity and good balance. The light body is surprisingly soft and dry. Perfect for July. High five - great sucess.
Shared bottle. Pours a somewhat cloudy gold with a small white head. Aroma of malt and grain. Taste is wheat, malt, and some citrus. Older bottle probably not at it’s best. alexsdad06 (10639) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle from old notes. Pours a hazy yellow gold color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have pale wheat malts, light bready character, mild orange and honey, this is just pretty bland and unexciting. Squizzle (306) - Ashland, Oregon, USA - DEC 26, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2015 This is a super good beer. Really fits my style. Kinda hard to find and rate because I got in the Eugene track bottle but I dig it. ctomson (29) - - NOV 18, 2014
Nice smooth wheat. Pours with glad head and a great orange aroma. A nice sweet taste hits in the Beginning finished with a full wheaty taste. A nice cloudy orange color of unfiltered wheat. Very similar to blue moon. Easy drinking. slowrunner77 (12581) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 17, 2014
"2013 as Tracktown Honey Orange Wheat. Would make a decent summer brew but its pretty simple. As advertised, light honey and orange, not much to the beer outside of that..."

So this is hard style to do well, in my opinion, props to Rogue for giving it their best shot...Clear (which is odd for a wheat ale), no lacing. Light, not bad for what it is. Drinkable, but the training wheels are definitely on it, it’s for the uninitiated I suspect. Medium-light carbonation, very light mouthfeel, am I even drinking?

Smells great but the taste is weird and only average. Some malty wheat notes and a little bit orange. Medium body. Mild carbonation. Lightly sour. Sperine (283) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2013
On tap at Rogue Public House in San Francisco, CA. I wish this beer was a fraction as good as the description made it sound. bpreo (2902) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 6, 2013
Rogue Ales, Track Town Ales, or Eugene City Brewery. They’re all the same, and they all make this beer. It’s not as good as the name suggests, unfortunately. baraciisch (3337) - California, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Had the Eugene city honey orange wheat... Aroma is lemon zest, flavor of light wheat, notes of honey and citrus... Okay
