4.52/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Sampled on draft at Pinnacle Peak

Appearance - cloudy, brass color with a medium sized, white head. Bright orange color

Smell - Like a freshly pealed Manadrin orange. The smell is so dominate and pervasive that it is tough to pickup any other smells. I really liked it.

Taste - sweet Manadrin orange, like you were biting a fresh piece of the fruit. The flavor is bright, full, and crisp. Not overly sweet, very refreshing. Hints of cloying, esters, and banana, but they are very muted and dominated by the Manadrin flavor

Mouthfeel - remarkably crisp and clean finish, never sticky, very refreshing.

Drinkability - Very good, probably a little better than the 4 I gave it, but not quite a 4.5 for me. If you really like Hefe's and Manadarin oranges though, this is the beer for you. This would be wonderful on a hot day, of which there are many in AZ, but today it was 60.

3.32/5  rDev 0%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: hazy orange in color with almost no head. No lacing developed during the session. No visible carbonation bubbles.

Smell: oranges are all that the nose can detect.

Taste: this beer is a bit unbalanced as the mandarin orange flavor is quite predominant. The wheat takes a back seat here. Barely any banana tones, but there is some background spiciness.

Mouthfeel: nice a crisp despite the flat look of this brew. Lighter in body. Orange aftertaste doesn't seem to leave your tongue.

Drinkability: so-so as this is refreshing but a bit to heavy on the orange flavors. Interesting beer worth giving a try if its on tap.
