look: 2.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Very cloudy golden rose color with one finger of foamy white head that departs rapidly leaving no lace.
Smell is amazing blast of tangerines.
Taste was a bit of a letdown after the great smell. Has some wheat beer qualities but the acids from the tangerine and lots of rind beat the wheat into submission. There is some bitterness from the hops that tends to level the sweetness from the fruit.
Mouthfeel is smooth slightly high carbonation made it a bit prickly on the tongue. Perhaps the acidity from the fruit made it more so.
Overall a pretty good fruit beer on a hot summer evening which it is right now. I think you could do better with a decent wheat beer and squeeze an orange wedge or half a tangerine into the beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

Smelled orange, tangerine, pulp, orange rind and maybe some citrus hops. Simple, yet good. Got orange, tangerine, orange rind, orange pulp, wheat and grass. Reminded me a bit of an orange creamsicle, orange Smarties and the orange type of dental cleaning powder. Light body. Thin-to-oily texture. Lively carbonation. Astringent, crisp and refreshing finish. A excellent fruit beer not fruity to the extent of disgust. I would highly recommend this seasonal specialty! One of the top on my list under this category. 150 calories per bottle 5% ABV.

Misc.: N/A

Poured a honey orange hazy color with two fingers of frothy white head. Minimal wet foggy lacing on the sides with some sporadic spots. Decent retention on the way down.

Smelled orange, tangerine, pulp, orange rind and maybe some citrus hops. Simple, yet good.

Tasted similar to the nose as expected, yet not quite as good. Got orange, tangerine, orange rind, orange pulp, wheat and grass. Reminded me a bit of an orange creamsicle, orange Smarties and the orange type of dental cleaning powder.

Light body. Thin-to-oily texture. Lively carbonation. Astringent, crisp and refreshing finish.

A pretty good fruit beer overall, although I’m usually a sucker for these ones (not summer beers though). Nice for the summer.

This pours a lemony golden color. There’s a barely perceptible citrus aroma to this. I can almost taste a hint of tangerine along with some orange peel and a hint of coriander. There’s some fizz on the end of this otherwise forgettable beer. With so much out there I’d pass on this next time.

Serving type: on-tap
