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.

Yuuuck. Not experienced drinker, but this was bad. Nice color aroma and orange citrus flavor, but so much carbonation. Its not tasteful enough to drink many nor is it smooth. Im from the area and I wish it would have tasted better.

Sampled on tap at Beer 39 in San Francisco. I ordered this for my wife because it is the type of beer she prefers. Hazy, orange, with minimal head. The smell is lovely - wheat and orange, but it doesn't quite come together taste-wise. Overall, a refreshing beer that is a nice alternative to a radler.
