Sampled this at the Stone 14th Anniversary fest.... Had to try it, since Hangar 24 is from my hometown of Redlands, Ca (which, coincidentally, also is formerly the Navel Orange Capital of the World).
The smell was fantastic, if what you want is a beer that smells strongly of fresh oranges. The scent of oranges was so strong that it almost made me expect it to taste more like orange juice than like beer, but I'm glad it didn't. The taste was still a "good beer" taste, but also still light and refreshing. Not heavy
Very refreshing and enjoyable. Perfect for a hot day (and I know how hot it gets out there in Redlands!).
Overall, I would highly recommend it if you want something to cool you off after mowing the lawn or something. I really enjoyed it.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
