I have actually had the pleasure of going to hangar 24 brewery in Redlands California being that i only live about 30 miles away or so. I cant really believe that this was in my backyard the whole time!. The brewery seems like its kind of in the middle of nowhere but when you arrive the parking lot seems full and there are lots of people around drinking lots of fresh beer. The layout is very open and flows pretty freely. You simple walk in and step up to the counter and order what you like.
After promptly ordering a cold pint of orange wheat we then proceeded to take a tour of the brewery which was very educational being that this was my first tour of a working brewery. Now lets rate the beer. Poured a very hazy orangeish golden color. About a finger and a half of white head. The smell was very much of fresh oranges. Some mild hop and malt aromas followed.
The taste was like the smell very much oranges, some small hop and sweet maltiness. But mostly citrus flavors. Very nice beer something i would definitely session on a sunday afternoon watching football or something. This is a beer you should really try along with the rest of what hangar makes and if your close check out their brewery its very cool.

Our local grocery recently added a craft brew section, and I recently chose this brew for one of my infrequent beer indulgences. Wish I hadn't. The beer starts promising, with a pleasant, hazy straw-yellow color and plenty of head. The experience went downhill from there. Despite the heavy smell of citrus and the tangy, well-carbonated mouthfeel one would expect from this style, the taste was, at best, unremarkable. Nothing stood out for me, neither wheat nor citrus. In fact, it was rather like a very weak lemonade with some alcohol thrown in. Very disappointing, and not a brew I will be having a second time.

A - A good looking wheat bear. Light in color and a little cloudy, but nice.
S - Orange smell is very strong. Couldn't smell anything else, so I knew I was in for full fruit flavors.
T - As citris beers go, this one was a bit sour. The orange taste didn't blend in very smoothly, and came off a bit too robust for my liking.
M - The citris taste lingers in the mouth. It's probably the most prevalent thing about the beer.
O - Great beer for a summer's day, but not for other occasions.
