3.58/5  rDev +3.8%
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.

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

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - A light orange-tinged gold. Practically zero head.

Smell - Very little orange smell, with more of a general ale characteristic than a wheat.

Taste - The only way I can really sort of describe this is...if you mixed a corona with orange and it didn't suck. Now that by no means makes it a great beer or a bad beer, but its drinkable. Any wheat characteristic is extremely muted.

Mouthfeel - very light and clean, with a lingering citrus bitterness.

Overall - Its a decent enough drink, but I don't count myself as a fan of it. I've had better orange wheats.

This is an okay wheat beer. It's much different from the first bottle I had. The first bottle had a strong vegetable taste to it. It tasted more like a Lemon Shandy, then an orange wheat beer. Poured a yellow orange straw color. The yellow straw color comes out. Smelled orange, orange rind. Maybe this beer is more like an ORANGE/LEMON Shandy.

The Beers of California

#76

Bottle Date: None

A: Hazy pale golden with a white, micro bubble head of foam. The bubbles leave a rim and a trace lace on the glass. There is a trace amount of lace on the rim and the glass.

S: Strong lemon and orange zest which floats on top of a honey wheat base.

T: Honey and orange juice sweetness ushers in moments of wheat and cracker maltiness. There are hints of clove and black pepper spice. The finish is clean and earthy. Simple, sweet and well executed.

M: Light feel and somewhat chewy. Could have used a bit more carbonation to add to the brew's lightness and brightness.

O: A sweet wheat ale and a refreshing session brew for hot summer days. Picked this up to celebrate the start of spring, which is really the start of Southern California's Summer.
