I haven't had this beer on tap yet, only out of the can. But just by pouring it, I have a feeling it may be best experienced from the can, poured into a glass. The aroma from is heavily orange/orange zest. The taste is genuine blood orange and is far from heavy. This is the best orange wheat beer I've had since Hangar 24s original recipe.

Received 4 cans from CA 12/19 - cannot find canning date.

Poured into pint glass

A: Pale, straw, orange-tint. Foamy white head with some retention.

S: Orange, orange soda, citrus

T: Blood orange, orange soda, light malt.

M: Very light, very carbonated, dry finish. Very drinkable.

Very refreshing witbier. Probably best in summer, but worked great for me right now. A very pleasant surprise.

On tap at Refuge Brewery – Temecula, CA
Notes from 08/18/13 - 4oz taster

A: Super light watered down blonde color with an abundance of wheat haze that obstruct any visibility. Frothy bone white finger cap with ample stay power and some nice squiggly stick down the glass.

S: Smells of soft Belgian yeast spices with some nice orange citrus zesting. There is a bit of grainy wheat malt character present as well. Very nice and pleasant with the fresh orange zest coming through.

T: Tastes of some mild Belgian yeast spice, wheat malts, and nice orange citrus flesh flavors. Balanced and not overkill with the fruit. A dash of coriander with a light underlying herbal hoppiness noted as well. The beer has a moderate to low level of bitterness and the alcohol is completely masked throughout. Very light and dry. Quite refreshing with the citrus additions well balanced.

M: Very light body with a spritzy carbonation and a super drying crisp finish. Relatively clean overall.

D: This is a very good Wit beer which is not a favorite style of mine by any means. Very light and crisp with a refreshing citrus twist.
The perfect warm weather brew. Their best seller according to the tender.
