A- Pours a hazy with a very slighty reddish hint to a golden orange color. A very thin white head, head is gone in a flash and and leaves no lacing.

S- Picking up a light sweet malt, and its dominated by orange. Not really anything else. I was surprised to see this under the Hefe category since it smells nothing like one.

T- A bit of sweet malts and a dry like cracker taste. Again quite a bit of oranges. Not like any other Hefe I've had.

M- Light in body and carbonation is also pretty tame.

O- I really struggled with my glass. I'll pass on this one.

On tap as part of a discounted flight. Sample glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with slim faint yellow hues arranging themselves in and out on the body. Light carbonation was somewhat seen rising. The smell had the blood orange up front and didn’t really allow much else there. The taste was mainly orange fruity sweet. Strong orange aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation comes across pretty strong. Overall, not a hefeweizen, no qualities of a true one exists in this beer.

Cloudy and as the name implies a color similar to blood orange. This is a step up from Blue Moon, but overall it's not too exciting. Citrus/orange taste through and through but not much of anything else. A good fit for a hot, summer day but not something I would drink regularly. Honestly, probably not something I would drink much on a hot, summer day either.

Trying the Blood Thirsty at the brewery. It poured a cloudy pear color with no head and no lace. The scent had waifs of tangerine. The taste was fruity with grain. The Mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's an interesting beer and worth a try.

Draft pint at the Ale House.
Very cloudy, orange/amber color with a very small head, basically a thin ring.
Small amount of thin lacing. The brew smells like wheat, with lots of citrusy blood oranges
and orange peel.
Refreshing orange flavor, the taste was same as the aroma.
Mouthfeel and body is light/medium, crisp and refreshing. Good level of carbonation keep it from being to sweet or sticky.
Smooth and easy to drink, give me this over a Blue Moon any day.

Bought this on-tap at the Beers of Ohio stand at Nationwide Arena before the Blue Jackets game last night, notes taken on my iPhone. Served in a clear plastic cup, the beer poured an orange/amber color with a very small head. Small amount of lacing. The brew smells like wheat, blood oranges/oranges and orange peel. I thought the taste was mostly like the aroma, it tastes like wheat/grainy malt, blood orange and orange peel. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it was a little bit coating but also crisp and refreshing. With moderate carbonation, it was smooth and easy to drink. I thought this was a solid overall brew, I'd certainly try it again in the future.
