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.

Poured a honey orange hazy color with two fingers of frothy white head. Minimal wet foggy lacing on the sides with some sporadic spots. Decent retention on the way down.

Smelled orange, tangerine, pulp, orange rind and maybe some citrus hops. Simple, yet good.

Tasted similar to the nose as expected, yet not quite as 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 pretty good fruit beer overall, although I’m usually a sucker for these ones (not summer beers though). Nice for the summer.

This pours a lemony golden color. There’s a barely perceptible citrus aroma to this. I can almost taste a hint of tangerine along with some orange peel and a hint of coriander. There’s some fizz on the end of this otherwise forgettable beer. With so much out there I’d pass on this next time.

If you like tangerine this beer is for you! I really enjoyed this brew and the low scores it gets is beyond me. If it is hot out and I am thirsty this beer hits the nail on the head. Slight tangerine taste that mixes well with the classic wheat beer taste. Winter...I can see this beer sucking but on a summer day relaxing boom! homerun! good job Lost Coast.

Bottom Line: awesome summer brew!

A- hazy almost tangerine color with an orange cream tinted white head. Ok retention and lace.

S- orange soda with a hint of vanilla and lightly toasted wheat. That sums it up right there.

T- vibrant tangerine flavor behind a hearty amount of grain. The malt is pretty one dimensional however and doesn't really overpower the fruit. Vague bitterness of grassy earthy hops in the finish.

MF- creamy-juicy and burp inducing. Zippy carbonation.

D- not so bad for what it is. The flavors compliment each other well enough, but it isn't a knock out by any means.
