Bomber. Golden pour, cloudy, sparse head. Light, hazy bodied wheat ale, smells and tastes like orange juice. Thirst quenching and refreshing, light and enjoyable.

Appearance: Pours a pale yellow, hazed body with an inch of airy, white foam. Light lacing.

Smell: Lightly tangy, citrusy orange-forward nose bolstered with a soft, lightly creamy wheat aroma.

Taste: Bright and tangy orange flavor amongst and amidst the lightly sweetish, soft wheat bread maltiness. A little blip of bitter orange. Subtly creamy yet crisp finish with residual Fanta-esque orange flavor.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: A decent springtime-summertime brew. It's wheaty, it's orangey -- why, it's just like the name implies!

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.
