Beer is a nice orange color with a fizzy white head that thinned out quickly. The smell is a nice blast of orange juice but you get a hint of the malts and wheat of the beer itself. It really does smell like you just squeezed an orange into your beer. The taste is very similar not much to it but the citrus flavors really come through well, just wish it had a little more. Felt a little basic. The beer had a nice clean mouth feel and fresh crispness to it.

I don't consider myself a beer snob, i.e. it doesn't have to taste like an IPA to be good. For example, I like Shock Top. But with the first mouthful of this beverage (I don't consider this "beer"), for the first time I knew I wasn't going to finish the rest of it, it's that bad. Tastes like a cross between what you would imagine as whale piss and cardboard.

Well first off this beer presents itself correctly with an orange color and has a soapy slightly off white head that dissipates quickly.

The smell is a blast of fresh squeezed oranges. I did pick up some bready notes on the smell but this really was overwhelmed by the orange citrus blast.

Taste follows the nose with the taste being almost like licking the inside portion of an orange peel. Not so sweet as it is pithy.

Mouth feel was light and has a crisp finish.

I liked this beer but was not totally convinced that I would go back for more. Maybe another bomber split with the wife may change my mind

For it's style, I'm super impressed. Kinda unique. Good aroma and color. Followed by a fine citrus taste with a comforting feel. A great summer brew for sure...

The label is cool, that's about all the good that I can say about this bru. Smells like your dirty bucket of pinesole mop water that you just finshed mopping your floor with. The taste comes in about the same. Huge let down, sorry.

Smells like diet Sunkist. Taste like a diet sunkist orange soda to, light orange/tangerine flavor and lots of carbonation. Not my style but had to give it a go.
