Bottle from Walmart. Spiced orange nose with some wheat. Grainy with some spiciness. A little bitter toward the end. Average white beer. Suttree (6504) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 7, 2013
From the "Spring Thaw" mix pack. Cloudy orange, decent white head. Pretty typical for the style, I guess. Some yeasty notes, some wheaty notes, some spicy notes. Perhaps a tad overbearing. blutt59 (6579) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Bottled , hazy orange pour with minimal foam. Aroma is yeasty lemon with Flavors of yeast, orange peel and bread finish nick76 (4402) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2013
The aroma is like dirty dish water with pale malt, some citrus and spice, and strange yeast. The appearance is hazy gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. I am not really a fan it has some interesting qualities but it smells off and just isn’t yummy. SuIIy (1984) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. Nose is peaches, straw, grass. Palate is very stingy, tongue lashing, with a light felt finish. Flavors of peaches, pepper, light spiciness.

From: VONS in Grantville, Calif. (San Diego)
Price: $13.97 w/ card ($17.99 regular) for the Spring Thaw Variety 12-pack
Misc.: Label said to enjoy before June
Poured a golden hazy color with about a finger of off-white head that went away almost immediately. No lacing on the sides, bad retention on the top.
Smelled the alcohol first, followed right away by cloves, icy sweet wheat, Cascade hops, citrus hops (tangerine, orange peel and lemon). Some unknown spices late.
Tasted pretty close to the smell. Got that icy, tangy wheat up front, followed by a sharp, sweet Cascade hops. Still got the citrus notes, mainly orange peel, orange and tangerine.
Light-to-medium body. Oily texture. Above average-to-average carbonation. Abrupt finish. Crisp, clean and refreshing.
Not a bad beer overall. Really great for a warm summer day. Crisp, clean and refreshing. dalepryor (305) - Paducah, Kentucky, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Hazy yellow orange in the glass with thin white head, aromas of orange zest and lemon and a slight spiciness. The taste is all citrus with orange being dominant, very crisp finish. Overall tasty and highly drinkable.
