I have no affiliation with this brand. Maybe it technically rates like 4.97 or something. But to suggest that this doesn't taste good is insane. And a lot of people rate it bad because it doesn't taste like traditional beer. To me, this is a fairly new style. I've had two other beers with tangerine taste. One is local at Cape Coral Brewing. You only get the faintest beer taste, but so what! As long as these beers keep their taste while drinking and don't get a flat taste, they're awesome! And this one keeps its taste. This is almost like soda. When it comes to this stuff, forget being like a wine taster. Leave that for your German/Belgian wheats and IPA's. This stuffs just good!

Juice tones throughout with a beer kick that presents itself in the middle and follows through. Very unique taste.

Taste Rating in Words: Just take orange juice and beer and pour them into your mouth at the same time. . . If it wasn't good, it isn't like that.

A: Extremely hazy red orange color.
S: Very inviting sweet tangerine/ citrus smell.
T: Tangerine flavor takes center stage masking anything else present in the beer. Stays present for a not completely pleasant aftertaste. Reminiscent of artificial orange flavoring.
M: Light fizzing but thicker than expected and clings to your tongue.
O: I believe the beer would be better when served extremely cold. It would be a nice choice for a beer drinker who enjoys fruity beers and the absence of any strong hops flavor. The aftertaste is it only real downfall of this beer.

For a fruit beer, this is much better than rated here. Nice citrus nose, and near perfect blending of fruit and wheat /grain backbone. This would be a nice summer thirst quencher.

Brings the hazy yellow pour, 1/2" white head. True to form, it brings some citrus and tangerine in the aroma. Can't name your beer with a fruit name within it and not bring some of the noise.

Taste follows the nose. Mouthfeel the same. Doesn't foray into that territory where you can't discern hops or grain. More grain, hops don't play much of a part here. Highly carbonated light body, not overly sweet. Perfume ish at times.

Poured from a bottle into a weizen glass.

Overall: I was hoping the tangerine would play an intriguing supporting role to a solid beer lead. Unfortunately, the tangerine came across really strong, a little artificial. The malts and wheat all but disappeared.

L: Pale, orange-hued, hazy, poor head that dissipated to barely a skim, no lacing at all. :(
S: Smells like part tangerine rinds and oils, and part artificial orange. The sweet orange soda smell is really fake and disappointing. No other smells present.
T: Half orange soda sweetness, half unpleasant tangerine rind bitterness (like the white part of the rind). The bitterness just edges out the rest making it mostly unpleasant. A barely-there malt taste pops in and back out again at the end. No discernible wheat characteristics.
F: Medium to light in body, noticeable carbonation.
