In my pint glass it is a pretty beer. A pinkish/orange color with only a hint of a head. Remember, though, looks can be deceiving.
There is a faint citrus aroma.
Taste is orange, and nothing else.
Thin and watery in the mouth.

12-oz. can, canned on 03/02/18 took a aggressive pour to get a clingy ring of white foam. Almost no lacing.
Looks like hazy orange-aid.
Weak smell at first, needs a swish to get some yeast and citrus.
Lite tangy taste at first, malt and the blood orange combine for a navel orange/pink grapefruit middle that gives way to a tangy and bitter citrus finish. Faint hops.
Mouthfeel mirrors the taste; lite at first, becoming richer in the middle as the surprising amount of CO2 kicks in and then a slighty artificial orange astringency at the end.
I enjoyed my first fruit/veg beer, juicy then "oh yes" this is a beer. Perfect for summer.

Tasteless. Avoid. Waste of money.

Not a fan of this beer whatsoever. Frankly, it doesn't even taste like a beer. This is a disappointing beer from a solid brewer of good beers. Jack's Abby gets a mulligan on this one!

Overall it’s a great summer beer. Juicy and light. Great bright orange color. Nice mouthfeel and a real easy drinker. Could maybe be a tad juicier but I love where it’s at now too. Super citrus nose. Cheers!

This beer is beautiful. It pours a hazy pinkish orange color with a two finger, frothy off white head. Retention is great and there are sticky rings of webbed lacing left all over the glass.

Smell is very heavy on the blood orange with a hint of lager yeast.

Taste is much more balanced and enjoyable. The blood orange is still very pronounced, but there are spicy and herbal hops, as well as wheat balancing it out.

Feel is light, smooth and easy drinking. So so drinkable and very refreshing.

Overall this beer is great for what it is. I was worried from the smell that it would be way too fruity, but the taste is much more balanced. Perfect for a lawnmower, beach or golf course beer. I could drink this like water on a hot day.

Tangerine, orange and toasted grain. Light delicate flavor overall. Easy drinking for sure and not too sweet. Semi dry finish. Not bad.

Consumed 5/6/18

A: Golden orange with pink tones throughout, more pink than I would have guessed - some chill haze - pours with a small white head, fades to a few wisps and a small collar, leaves a little lacing

S: Fairly neutral lager base with loads of blood orange - mild overall, the blood orange really shines - kind of smells somewhere between an orange soda, a citrus sherbet, and a beer - fleshy citrus and raspberry - some hints of lager yeast and a touch of spice - wheat cereal, some pale grain - light grainy and fruity sweetness

T: Super soft and mild, yet also crisp and refreshing - juicy, fleshy citrus, orange with hints of raspberries and other berries - an interesting interaction between the citrus and the wheat lager that somehow reminds me more of an orange Creamsicle than an orange soda - slight hints of lager yeast and some spice, but the beer part of this is mostly just some soft wheat and some hints of pilsner malt - lightly sweet without being overly so - very clean and refreshing

M: Light body, crisp yet also smooth, clean finish

O: Sometimes I forget radlers exist

I am pretty sure that I've had this at the brewery in the past, but sitting down with a pint of this and really thinking about it is a different experience. Radlers that I have had in the past have been generally underwhelming. Blood Orange Wheat, at the very least, is very interesting, particularly if you enjoy blood orange.
