Compared to the Pomegranate Raspberry flavor, this has a distinctly more "wine cooler" type taste, though much less sugar. An interesting note, it's no longer named "Blood" orange, but rather "Tuscan" orange. Apparently "Blood" didn't go over too well with the drinking public (sans goths and vampire types). Other than the wine cooler taste, it's light with lots of delicate carbonation, more fruit than beer flavor, and easy drinking. Personally I'd opt for the Pomegranate unless you're more apt to drink wine coolers.

The beer emerges from the 12-ounce clear bottle a clear gold color with basically no head and very little lace. Nose is sweet with hints of overripe fruit and a hint of tartness from the grapefruit at the back, crisp and clean, start is sweet and sour, with a light grain profile, and the top quite thin. Finish is astringent, the hops light and the tart and aftertaste, lingers way to long. As summer has arrived in Arizona, It is supposed to be in the 110 degree Fahrenheit range today, I guess its time to breakout the “light beer palate” until the end of October when the temperature gets back into the seventies! Lol
