Hazy Orange with white head. Smell is... whoa! ... Huge mounds of tangerines, with hints of tangerines, and subtle tangerine notes. Seriously nothing subtle about it. I don't think I've ever had another beer with a more definitive, obvious smell. Taste followed with citrus but it was acutely Orange juice. Interesting and weird. Not horrible, but nothing that I expected.

Served on tap in a pint glass.

Appearance: Hazy darker yellow with a thick white head.

Smell: Strong orange and hops.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste like orange juice with a little hoppy bitterness.

Overall: Not a bad beer. I would have it again.

Beer pours a hazy orange color with no head. The smell is tangerine and citrus with a nice smooth tangerine flavor. Not sure why such bad ratings I thoroughly enjoyed this beer.

5.5% ABV | 15 IBU

The looks is very inviting initially but fades over time. Pours a nice hazy orange with a small about of head and practically no lacing.

The smell is immediate tangerine/orange that takes away from any hops or malt that you could get from this one.

The taste on this one follows exactly what you would expect from the nose. This beer doesn't resemble any beer taste at all but by no means does that mean it's bad. It is full of citrus juiciness.

The feel is very smooth with almost no carbonation. Very light and juicy.

Overall this is a good beer to mix in a flight or one cold pint at the bar. I would classify this as an adult Sunkist. It's a light,refreshing beer that won't over power you with hops or a malty taste. This wheat beer can be enjoyed by anyone but if you like something stronger that brings some punch to the table...this beer isn't for you.

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.
