Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
A refreshingly tart and crisp hefeweizen brewed with local MA wildflower honey, orange peel and coriander, and fermented with the juice from over 1,000 blood oranges. It’s a cloudy, yet effervescent beer, with lingering banana and citrus notes balanced against a healthy wheat backbone and hoppy finish from Mt. Hood and Crystal hops.

On tap at the Great Lost Bear. Significant orange aroma. Cloudy orange appearance, with a little head. Cider taste, orange juice added to a wheat beer.Yes o tangerine and these things but I'm not into beer cocktails. Very wheaty character, not a hefe. OK drinkability.Average mouthfeel.

Pours medium cloudy orange with a decent white foam head. Nice ring of retention.

Perfume of tropical fruit is very very light. Some malt.

Some sweet wheat and orange rind up front. More bitter than malty, and then very dry. Coriander comes thru, as does the blood orange, but again, dry and bitter. Finish carry some of the fruit from the malt, but balances with bitterness.

Lighter bodied and carbonated.

Just ok overall. A bit harsher than I like, and this takes away from the refreshing aspects of the beer. Worth a try.
