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.

Pours a hazy orange with a 1/2 inch orange-white head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace drip back into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is a mix of tangerines and oranges with some slight grain aromas. Taste is of intense tangerine up front (fruit and zest) with a wheat aftertaste. This beer has a pretty good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good fruit beer that delivers much more than I was expecting it to.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy beige color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of tangerines, some wheat. Taste is tart, lots of tangerine, a touch of wheat, a slight bitterness at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a drinkable and enjoyable beer.

My grocery store's beer selection just got re-orgainzed, and you know what that means; discontinued beer. Tangerine Wheat was one of the victims, however I did score a six-pack for just $3, and this is a beer I've had an eye on for some time. Better get the tick now. On to the beer:

The color is toasted orange with a moderately hazy body and a short head that splashes a few drops of lace around the glass. The nose is full tangerine. Not a "fake smelling" tangerine, but a freshly cut tangerine with a crisp and quite sweet scent.

This is good stuff despite having an overcarbonated body. The flavor remains dominant of the tangerine fruit, but not nearly as succulent as the aroma. There's a very light tracve of malted wheat to balance out the fruit. Hops are very light in this one as well, but I swear I tasted something piney-like. Surprisingly, its carbonation provides much of the bitterness, in a club soda kind of way. The body is light, and the carbonation is very peppy (bet you didn't see that coming).

A more than reasonable offering from the fruit beer category. While I prefer the essence and balance of something like Hangar 24's Orange Wheat, Tangerine Wheat is a little bit of a breakup from the usual orange flavored wheat ale.
