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!

Much better than most fruit beers. I'd take this over blue moon any day!

Smelled orange, tangerine, pulp, orange rind and maybe some citrus hops. Simple, yet good. Got orange, tangerine, orange rind, orange pulp, wheat and grass. Reminded me a bit of an orange creamsicle, orange Smarties and the orange type of dental cleaning powder. Light body. Thin-to-oily texture. Lively carbonation. Astringent, crisp and refreshing finish. A excellent fruit beer not fruity to the extent of disgust. I would highly recommend this seasonal specialty! One of the top on my list under this category. 150 calories per bottle 5% ABV.

A guest review from my wife of one of her favorite fruit beers.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into an Ayinger pilsner glass. Pours a peachy amber color, cloudy and fairly fizzy with a thin skim of head.

In your face tangerine aroma; clementines, tangerine rind, honey and hints of malt combine for a very pleasant smell. Think Orange Crush, but not as sweet.

Taste is much milder than aroma. Tangerine is still prominent, with a mild bready flavor, with the maltiness quickly fading for a quiet finish.

Has a thinish mouthfeel, somewhat soft and refereshing due to the citrusy zing. The tang is felt more than tasted, likely due to the carbonation.

The strong tangerine flavor combined with this brew is how a wheat beer should be; forget adding the orange to Blue Moon, this is the beer you want!

Very refreshing taste with a lovely note of fruit. Like the fact that the fruit taste is not too strong. Very light beer and perfect for the summertime. Since it is so light it's very drinkable and smooth.
