A guest review from my wife of one of her favorite fruit beers.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into an Ayinger pilsner glass. Pours a peachy amber color, cloudy and fairly fizzy with a thin skim of head.

In your face tangerine aroma; clementines, tangerine rind, honey and hints of malt combine for a very pleasant smell. Think Orange Crush, but not as sweet.

Taste is much milder than aroma. Tangerine is still prominent, with a mild bready flavor, with the maltiness quickly fading for a quiet finish.

Has a thinish mouthfeel, somewhat soft and refereshing due to the citrusy zing. The tang is felt more than tasted, likely due to the carbonation.

The strong tangerine flavor combined with this brew is how a wheat beer should be; forget adding the orange to Blue Moon, this is the beer you want!

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.
