A very pleasant beer with a full body and crisp clean finish with a slightly sweet and nutty aftertaste. It pairs well with beef of any type and although some will put an orange wedge or a splash of oj in it, it stands well on its own.

Even though it is a full bodied beer it does not have a heavy feeling when you drink it.

Bright almost backlit appearance, orange color. Medium head and carbonation. Delectably earthy, mostly morel combined with a hint of citrus smell. Clean, crisp, semi-dry taste...no lasting aftertaste. Light to medium, smooth mouth feel. Easily my current favorite domestic ale.

Poured a beautiful cloudy golden with a finger and a half fluffy white head that left lots of lacing. Scents of yeast, bread dough, and a bit of a citrus and orange. Flavor is crisp and refreshing with flavors of orange peel, doughy wheat bread, floral hop notes and some earthy flavors on the finish. Mouthfeel is light bodied, with moderate carbonation, a bit thicker than a normal wheat beer but with less carbonation than usual. An amazing wheat ale, the best I've tasted. The best part is that you can get it easily year round in Arizona.

3rd year in a row as my favorite spring-summer brew. I've sampled it every which way you can.
Orange gold. When poured in to an oversized pint glass look for a nice haze of yeast. 2 - 3"'s of beautiful creamy head that takes a little while to subside (usually can’t wait). The nose is not particularly fruity or citrusy, a touch of spice & flowers without the perfume. Very, very smooth, creamy, dry & quenching. Extremely easy to drink (too easy @ 6% ABV) the yeast is perfect with just a smidgeon of sediment left at the bottom of the glass, perfect for the next pour.

The best summer beer out there. Very refreshing citrusy beer without getting too sweet or sour. I've had it in bottle and on-tap and tap is certainly better, but it is still an excellent bottled beer. I have noticed, unfortunately, that it is only available in certain geographic areas of the US - not available in the Northeast, but it is available in DC and the midwest.

What a amazing beer. By far the best i have had. Only issue i have is it's so smooth that you can drink a 6 pack easy.

I got a 6 pack as a gift. i was amazed and loved this beer. takes the place as my new favorite beer.

It is very smooth, great flavor, great looking and goes great with cheeseburgers and friends.
