On tap at Hangar 24
1/24/11

A - Murky orange hefeweizen appearance - typical of the style unfiltered, our pour had little/no head

S - Light orange scent, with what smelled like baby powder - confirmed with others just to make sure...

T - Sweet, orange/orange peel, and a definite pronounced wheat taste in the finish

M - Light, unfiltered texture, a little sticky in coating, and a little alcohol warmth/taste in the finish odd for a 4.6% ABV

D - Very popular with the locals, similar to a Blue Moon type beer - this is the number one seller for them enough so this small brewery bottles and distributes this and is their main tap beer outside of Redlands... Bland to me, the nose wasn't appealing, I wanted to like this as it's a nice summer style and I have had other Orange Wheat style beers -- had this well before the brewery visit at a Red Robin once - a sip from someone else that would normally like this style and they weren't a big fan either. Though my brother loves Blue Moon and he likes this enough he'll order it if the other isn't available...

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.

On tap at Castaways...

A - Pours a light honey color with a one finger off white head that dissipates at a hasty pace. No lace to be had here...

S - Oranges and various other citrus fruits. Don't detect much else as the citrus scent is so prominate...

T - Oranges, wheat, and maybe a hint of honey. Ends on a sweet orange note. Not much in the way of complexity here...

M - Definitely light bodied. Pretty watered down. Might be a good one to drink on hot summer day...

D - Not sure why this brew gets so much love down here. A pretty average beer from where I stand. A definite session beer, but probably not something I will be revisiting in the future...

Cheers...
