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...

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.

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.
