Poured from a 12 oz bottle into an Avery pint glass.

A - hazy honey orange, big white head that recedes quickly leaving a thin layer.

S - Sweet tangerine orange, little hint of malts

T - At first I wasn't that impressed, but after a few tastes felt like this was a fairly balanced, some tangerine, nice malts, actually tasted a bit of hops.

M - Medium bodied medium carbonation

O - Okay brew, the tangerine taste seems a bit forced, is a refreshing finish

12 ounce bottle served cold in glass pint

A) Rusted orange haze; lacy white head settles quickly.

S) Rush of citrus fruit. Sweet, mild ginger spice, sour dough

T) Sweet and malty, Hops are barely present

M) Refreshing bubbly spiked tangerine fizz, similar in texture to orange soda. Smooth and drinkable

O) Lives up to its name -- tangerine beer.

I bought this one on a whim to try a wheat beer that was mixed with an orange taste. I was personally trying to get something that was like Shock Top, but better in taste.

This one is definitely that. Its a bit sweeter than what I was expecting, but the orange is complimented by the wheat very well. Its kinda light, almost no bitterness, and goes down smooth to the last drop.

I don't know if I'd buy this with food, cause it does ride the palate a fair bit, but its definitely a good kind of "kick back and knock one down" kind of drink.
