COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A refreshingly tart and crisp hefeweizen brewed with local MA wildflower honey, orange peel and coriander, and fermented with the juice from over 1,000 blood oranges. It’s a cloudy, yet effervescent beer, with lingering banana and citrus notes balanced against a healthy wheat backbone and hoppy finish from Mt. Hood and Crystal hops.

650ml bottle. Amber pour. Aroma is vinegary. Flavor is venegar and bland paper.

Post tasting thoughts:
a 1.99 buy, I am assuming this is old because it was cheap and I don’t really see this brand around anymore.

Sammy (12201) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2012
On tap at the Great Lost Bear. Significant orange aroma. Cloudy orange appearance, with a little head. Cider taste, orange juice added to a wheat beer. Very wheaty character, not a hefe. OK drinkability.

phaleslu (10247) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 5, 2011
22 oz. bottle sent by lushawn for the STL RB Gathering. Thanks, Shawn, for giving us a taste of your new neighborhood brewery! Pours a hazy gold color with a small white head. Aroma is pretty wheaty, with lots of lemon and orange citrus, coriander, and sweet malts. Flavor of oranges, wheat, coriander, and sweet and pale malts. Light-bodied, with a citrusy, wheaty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. How is this not considered a hefeweizen around these parts, or at least a wheat ale?

GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 5, 2012
651mL thanks to mkabull on BA. Pours a hazy, glowing orange with a larger, rocky, buttermilk head. Long retention and thicker lace. Nose is soapy, chemical, moves to banana and clove hefeweizen esters eventually. Some mild vinegar and off characters. Taste is a little off- vegetal, minerally, just weird off characters like first homebrew batches. Diacetyl slickness, minerally, mildly vegetal. Very odd- not enjoyable.

BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Bottle thanks to JJFoodie. Pours with a hazed golden hued body with a medium sized, lasting white head. Aromas are herbal, earthy, medium hoppy, citrus, a bit grassy with some bready malt notes and light phenolics. Flavors are citrusy, herbal, tangerine, orange, stonefruit. Medium esters, light phenols. Lively bubbles, moderately dry with a medium to medium light heft of the body.

3.2
Strykzone (7356) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Bomber from Randalls Fairview Heights. Lots of globules of sediment were loosened while it was being rolled. The beer is unfiltered golden orange and has a big white fluffy head. I smell cloves and oranges. The blood oranges are tasted first and take it far from a classic hefe. There is also a saison quality with sourness and earth. The hop choice does not work and it has a sourness to it. This one is kind of confused.
