I got a bottle of this beer from my good friend and old neighbor from the 'Wego. It poured a slightly hazy pale yellow with very little fizzy white head that is not leaving any lace. The scent had bitter orange notes. The taste was sour leaning with bitter orange tang. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it is not a beer for me.....but glad to have tried it.

From a beer of the month club. Poured with a bit of cackling leading to a quickly receding off-white foam head that ended with mere laces. Body is a hazy pale straw color on the outside but more orange in the center. Really a nice looking orange wheat ale. The scent is primarily a citrus orange (a touch more acidic but some sweet too with a zest of spice) and a nice wheat backdrop. Taste is quite unlike anything I have had before, almost verging on a sour or gose but has none of the lingering esters in the mouth and a breadiness helps to fight off becoming too sapid. Instead there seems to be a quick hit of orange, effervescence on the tongue, and a bit orange in the aftertaste without ever overpowering. Feel is very much on the lighter side and is the weakest point of an all around very solid beer.

Orange flavor on this is fairly subtle. More of a wheat beer than anything. Also a bit more bitter than I expected. Good carbonation, fairly thick and wheaty texture. Not my favorite kcal to abv ration (168 or 138kcal for 4.6abv).

Orange beer, you would think shock top had this flavor on lock, but this is one of my favorite wheat beers because of its sweet notes.

This one poured from a 12 oz. bottle a nice golden color with a half finger of crackling white head that quicly goes away.

Smells bready and something like biscuits with a citrus like lime smell.

Taste was a bit sour. Tastes like a a lime flavored water with half of the carbonation.

Mouth was like water and finishes like water.

Seems like it wants to be something with a lot missing. Is it a orange shandy, a weissbeer attempt, or does it want to be a flavored wheat ale. Crap I do not know! Perhaps me and the wife got two off bottles as she said the same.

Look - a hazy light orange. No head, but a lot of carbonation.
Smell - a very subtle orange with wheat (banana-like) flavor
Taste - thoroughly refreshing. Citrus flavor is subtle but very detectable. Not as much wheat flavor as I like, but I guess that's why this is classified as a fruit/vegetable beer instead of a wheat beer.
Feel - light bodied, high carbonation, low ABV.
Overall - a great summer beer. Subtle is the best way to describe it, as the flavors are light but definitely there. Carbonation may be a bit overkill for some, but very easy to drink and very refreshing.

Just had this beer on tap at the San Bernardino B. J.'s. I have been visiting this area on business for years and have enjoyed this beer since it was new. Always fresh, crisp and tasty. The orange smell and taste is not overpowering but nicely subtle. Very refreshing beer and I recommend it.

Hangar 24's Orange wheat has a beautiful golden hazy look that unfiltered beers embody so well. The haze brings a light refreshing scent of citrus. While smooth, this orange wheat ends with a tangy dry twist. Overall, this beer is better suited for a hot summer day.
