look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12 oz bottle to Stone taster glass 4/18/11.

A: Unfiltered light orange color. Extremely murky, cannot see through this beer at all. Less than one finger thick, thin, pearl white head. No retention.

S: Nose is orange peel and German style yeast. Some faint banana and bread. Very few, if any, hops on the nose. A bit above average for the style, as I prefer orange styles to banana styles.

T: Taste follows the nose for the most part. A good twang from the yeast and an orange fleshy finish. I would suggest this beer finishes more like orange juice than anything else. Some banana and orange flavors linger on the tongue.

M: Mouthfeel is mediocre and thin. Moderate/low carbonation, and nothing special here. I guess to be expected for such a low gravity brew.

O: A good orange whit beer, but nothing special. If I was blinded next to other orange whits I'm not sure I could point it out.

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.

I cracked one of these open on a 90 degree day and boy was it refreshing. I was a little scared that it would be a very intense orange flavored beer. Something similar to magic hat number 9 with the intense apricot flavor, instead it was very mellow and blends very well with the wheat. The beer had a nice creamy head to it and a hazy straw like color. The aroma was a subtle orange flavor with some bready notes. The flavor was a slight orange with the wheat notes of the beer being very dominant. The beer has a lighter mouth feel from adding oranges early in fermentation. I would recommend this beer for any hot day.
