from a bottle into a shaker, pours an orange-gold with a very puffy 2 finger head that subsides after a few minutes...decent retention. Nose promises oranges and tangerines and is fairly potent, but fairly one-note and not entirely convincing. Then it falls off and something doesn't seem quite right..still citrus notes there, but not really balanced with any kind of convincing wheat. Like a flashy infusion without enough going for it into a base that needs a lot more. Wouldn't seek this one out again at all.

Tastes like Fanta unfortunately, too much sweet fruitiness, too fizzy, not enough beer character. Really disappointing compared to hoppy wheats which are some of my favorite summer brews.

First had at Rustic Eatery, Valencia, Cal., poured from 12-oz. bottle into clear plastic beer cup. Despite the "[i]nfus[ion] with the essence of tangerine," little evidence of actual fruit other than the aroma, characteristic of the best fruit beers.

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.
