look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Pours a pale straw, somewhat golden color with little tiny bits of white sediment floating around in the beer - is this supposed to simulate pulp?! Tiny bit of haze in the middle, but decent clarity for the most part, especially for a wheat beer. The big white head froths up fast but tames itself quickly and reduces to nothing more than a ring within a minute. The nose smells like Tang. Orange Tang. To be more precise, artificial orange drink. Not orange juice, but orange "drink". It has that kind of dry, powdery smell to it. And the taste pretty much follows right along with that. A slightly tart and tangy snap of orange and tangerine; however, it's not as natural tasting as I'd hoped - kind of artificial and chalky on the palate. It seems a bit diluted, too, like some of the flavor had gone missing somewhere. The wheat flavor is abound, but it engulfed, for the most part, by the tangerine flavors. It kind of has a weird, medicinal, chewing vitamin-like aftertaste. Thin body, high carbonation.

This seems like it would be better paired for a hot summer day by the pool or just after finishing up the yard work on a 90 degree day. It could be good, but unfortunately the tangerine flavor is a bit too artificial in character.
