As you can tell by my ratings, I really enjoyed this tangerine wheat. Wonderful hot weather beverage. While it is surprisingly sweet, not so much to ruin the drink.

Strong and tart citrus flavor, reminds me of the Blood Orange Hefeweizen that Slo Brew makes. Fairly thin for a wheat beer with strong and prickly carbonation. Very drinkable and refreshing.

Poured from 1 pint, 6oz bottle into 16oz tulip glass. Bottle 1/8/18.

Look: Light amber in color, almost sunburnt orange in color. Has a slight unfiltered look. I achieved 2 fingers worth of head from a fairly easy pour.

Smell: Tangerine, tangerine, and more tangerine. Overall strong citrus smelling, predominantly tangerine and orange. Nothing else really. For what it is, it smells good, but does have an orange soda or medicinal orange smell to it. No evidence that this is a beer.

Taste: Tangerine and citrus fruit up front, with an evident sweetness. Slight wheat presence, but minimal. I am not sure, but I know I can't drink much of this. It is too medicinal tasting.

Feel: Medium in body, but high in carbonation.

Overall: This is a rollercoaster of a beer. The smell got me excited, but the taste is too much. Too medicinal and sugary tangerine overload. But as always, I am thankful to have tried. Cheers!

On tap.

A - Pours a hazy medium to dark orange gold color. Nice frothy white lacing, mild carbonation.

S - Nose has some wheaty-malt-like character but other than that, all juicy tangerine on the nose.

T - The palate gets slapped up front with a healthy dose of sugary tangerine that's almost a little artificial in character. Midway through the tangerine starts to drop off and and with a light tangerine citrus bitterness and cereal graininess.

M - Big medium body with prickly carbonation. The carbonation dies down pretty quick and leaves a smooth thick silky texture.

O - The tangerine is a little sweet and cloying.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass

L: Nearly clear golden orange pour. 2 fingers of foamy white head. Falls fast.. thin rim of lacing.

S: Tangerine and citrus. Overpowering... smells like an Orange Crush soda.

T/F: Light grains... not a whole lot of 'wheat beer' character, but what is there is a bit at odds with the tangerine/citrus juice that follows. Somewhat sweet... marginally balanced by some hopping. Light bodied... easy to drink. Well carbonated. Sweet citrus at the finish.

O: A 1-dimensional brew... delivers the tangerine but not much else, and again the flavor is so strong it's almost working against the base wheat beer. Not terrible... something crushable at the pool but not one to seek out.

Pours a nice yellow/orange with a good .5” head.
Smell is strong tangerine.
Taste is a bit off, the smell leads to believe it will be very citrus k anting, but hardly any taste of citrus.
Feel is nice, refreshing, and clean.
Overall not bad, wish it had more of a citrus taste though.

Pour is hazy orange. Foamy, short, white head that Fades fast.

Smells orange, Tangerine, citrus peel and a hint of wheat.

Taste Sweet Tangerine, light wheat, light citrus peel, almost soda like. Finish a semi sweet with a tangerine linger medium body and fizzy medium carbonation.
