Serving type: 12 oz bottle into a pint glass

Pours a hazy light yellow color, closely resembles carbonated orange juice. Off white bubbles form into a partial film. Smell is of orange zest, orange juice, slight wheat scents. Taste reflects the smell. Initial strong orange tastes lead into a tiny amount of orange rind bitterness that goes into a slight citrus/wheat tartness that finishes with a pleasant bready biscuit taste that lingers for a small amount of time. Finishes semi-dry. Feel is light, amply carbonated, and very refreshing. Overall, this is a good fruit forward beer that is extremely crushable and easy to drink. Glad they listened to the consumer and started canning this stuff.

My absolute favorite fruity beer. Tastes like a blue moon but with 3 orange slices that have been sitting in it for an hour

Citrusy and little tangy. Similar to a blue moon, But better. Nice golden color a little bit hazy. About 2 finger foam head.

i dont like it. it tastes and feels diluted, the orange flavor is weak and one-dimensional, it has an unbalanced sourness, and has an overall taste and finish that seemed cheap to me. a six pack has never lasted over a week in my fridge before

L: pours a pale yellow with a thick foamy head. Very cloudy as you would expect from an unfiltered beer. Heavy carbonation, excellent lace.

S: Citrus, metal, yeast. Pretty straight forward. Citrus dominates the nose. Simple and obvious

T: I'm torn. It has a very nice blend of flavors, but it comes across a little bland at times. It is as advertised. Heavy up front on the orange and citrus flavor that falls back onto a wheat backbone and aftertaste. However, some sips can seem a little watery at times, which I feel is a common problem with some fruit beers. Bit of a soapy taste to it as well sometimes. That being said it doesn't have a bad flavor at all. Just not outstanding. The orange flavor is well done. Doesn't taste gimmicky or like an additive.

F: Very crisp and refreshing. Light and tingly. Pretty dry finish. Very very drinkable.

O: It's an average to above average beer. Not outstanding, but definitely not a poor brew by any means. A good go to beer if you are at the store and can't decide what to get. Sessionable, light, and fairly tasty albeit bland at times past a well crafted orange flavor. Doesn't feel gimmicky, which is generally good when the taste you are going for is in the title.

Review from memory. On tap at Naja’s Place, Redondo Beach. Hazy gold color with white head that vanished quickly. Aroma of orange, wheat malt, doughy yeast, spice. Flavors follow the nose with less orange/more lemon citrus notes. Moderate sweetness. Crisp, light body, wet, refreshing.
