this thing pours the same color as the tables... only milky... orange tinted amber with a white ring of lace.
it smells like canned/frozen/cooked orange juice concentrate with a bit of musty wheat and some minerals.
not surprisingly it tastes like a generic frozen OJ and mediocre sparkling wine mimosa... quite tart and dry yet fruity and sweet-ish. there are faint notes of stone/minerals and dusty earthy grain. light to medium bodied with a bit of a starchy mouth feel. a good way to start the day (drinking). 6/4/6/3/13/3.2

This beer is incredibly hazy, it is down right murky in appearance and is a light amber, orange tinged muddy color. There is almost no head, with barely a ring of white bubbles. The aroma smells simply of orange juice; nothing more, nothing less, though it is perhaps a touch muted compared to an actual glass of OJ.
Not surprisingly, the beer tastes like a blend of orange juice and a wheat beer. It has the sweetness of OJ and a citrus-like bite characteristic of orange peel. The beer has a tartness to it that helps a little bit to balance the sweetness. This is pretty light bodied, but the murkiness suggests a touch of fullness that is actually present. The orange flavors definitely dominate the flavor profile of this beer, but there is a touch of tart, grainy wheat to the finish.
This is the beer worlds version of a mimosa; the beer provides the bubbles and tempers the OJ just a bit, but doesn't really add a whole lot in the way of flavor. This seems to be a bit of a departure from beer, but it would be a good brunch accompaniment. It definitely has the refreshing thing going for it.
