Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a deep yellow color, with a short white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains wheat, citrus, light caramelized malts and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a mildly sweet citrus and honey flavor that is quickly followed by a thin wheat and light malt breadiness. The hops presence is very mild but brings some balance. The honey flavor increases just a bit into the finish. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.

M: Smooth and very crisp, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry.

O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, it’s a decent beer but there are other wheat beers I would choose first.

From the bottle: "This unfiltered beer is medium bodied with no harsh bitterness. It his flavors of honey and orange balanced with a nice medium-sweet malt character."; "Brewed With Oregon Honey, Orange Peel, & Spices Added".

My pour netted me a fizzy, foamy finger of French Vanilla-colored head with moderate retention. Color was a very cloudy orangish-yellow. Nose smelled strongly of sweet oranges, more like Mandarin than Navel. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium and the taste was definitely not bitter. It was very mellow, like drinking tea and even the label mentioned their use of Chamomile along with Coriander and the other aforementioned ingredients. Finish was not overly sweet, but it was definitely sweeter than I usually like. This would be one for me to share with (at least) one other person. A bomber of it was too much by myself. I guess that it would be good in the summer or if you like this sort of thing, but for me, it was a non-starter.

Bomber pours a hazy light orange colour with a lot of small bubbled carbonation, although limited head and no lacing. Aroma of roasted grains, both malted barley and wheat, with a pleasantly orange undertone. The orange is also prevalent in this beer's finish, although it is not overly sweet or cloying. Taste has an initial malted sweetness, then a moment of bitterness before the orange and grain finish. The wheat is present, but not overwhelming - a positive, in my own personal world.

None of the grapefruit or tropical fruits I'd associate specifically with this style, but a pleasant beer one nonetheless. An uncomplicated and unthreatening summer pint that could appeal to a wide variety of consumers.

A random bomber I grabbed in a recent trip to the US.

A - Pours a light golden colour with minimal haze, finger of head with little retention and no real lacing.

S - Rather mild off the top, hints of orange citrus, leafy greens and some caramel malts. As I dip into the glass the light honey notes come through.

T - The sweet honey is detectable alongside the orange rind and a unique bitterness lingers alongside some sour mash notes, leafy greens and some bready caramel.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and wet.

O - Easy drinking and surprisingly flavourful. A tasty afternoon beverage that would pair well with a summer patio.
