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. Its 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.

16oz can. Pours a blood colored orange. Tasted better than expected but still not really my thing. Closer to a pale ale with juice added than to a wheat beer. The blood orange flavor actually worked well with this. It was OK.

Can says brewed at Mercury Brewing( which now looks like Ipswitch Ale Brewing). Guess they contract brew their canned offerings?? Bit of a lactic sour aroma with the citrus wheat beer backing. Nice. Taste is almost a dirty citrus with a weak palate and a slight sourness to the finish. Nice blood orange and some nice spices but also has a dirty taste to it. Looks like cloudy apple cider. Wasn’t impressed at first but has gotten a bit better as I drank more, but still not a favorite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Grassy / wheat nose with citrus (orange) and spice. Pours dark, cloudy golden with thin white foam. Initially sweet taste of malts and oranges. Spices (coriander) appear toward the middle and carry to the sour finish. Pleasantly complex and rich set of flavors that begin with a sense of wheat beer but recalling a saison yeasty sourness. Medium fizziness and light bodied.

Draft at Yard House. Pours orange gold with an off white head. Aroma is orange, lemon, wheat, pepper. Flavor reminds me of Picon Biere. Slightly bitter orange over mild wheat.

Slumbrew Happy Sol has a thin, fizzy, quickly-dissipating head, no lacing, a murky (especially so, after the bottom caked contents are loosened and poured in), orange appearance. The aroma is odd, but it (and, the flavor) does improve as the beer settles out. I picked up honey, aged dankness, red soil, bread crust, and possibly some juice. Taste is of sweetness, that odd oldness, honey, bread crust, malt, and low bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium, and Slumbrew Happy Sol finishes wet and juice like. Reminds me of a mimosa. RJT

rjplumer (1018) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Super orange aroma with some banana. Hazy amber body with a minimal head retention. Pronounced orange taste with a soft yeast background. Soft sourness with a citrus tang on the tongue. Leaves a tart coriander sourness on the tongue. Pleasant and sweet to experience.

Sampled at Mass Brewers Fest 14. Poured a hazy golden orange with bubbly white head. Wheat/clove aroma with the addition of orange peel. A lot of citrus in the flavor from the orange and lemon peel as well as the typical wheat and spice. Interesting mixture. Medium to light in body with a tartness on the tongue.

kinda like a beer with some tea like quality to it. the orange comes in real mellow and easy and is not noticeable at first and pretty much makes this beer. that and again it is kinda beery. interesting sweetness flowery and fruity yet tart with some light chalkiness.

weihenweizen (3250) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Refrigerated brown bomber from Red, White, and Bleu, bottled on date September 18, 2012, poured into a weizen glass. Pours translucent orange with small dense white head. Aroma is light orange, medium body, medium carbonation, and big bubble lacing. Taste is orange, honey, some coriander, and some cardboard. Pretty good, would like to try this again when fresh. Should have checked the date before the purchase.
