Serving type: bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance – Poured in cloudy orange. Head disappeared in seconds, quickly turning into thin lacing and a ring around the top. Carbonation is on the light side. Looks interesting in a yellow-orange, cloudy sort of way.

Smell – Slightly sweet, hint of blood orange citrus, flowery.

Taste – I was expecting more citrusy dominance, but the orange was a bit hidden. The blood orange tasted more like a splash of Sunkist soda. Not that bad, but a bit on the sweet side – especially when I was expecting something more exotic (like blood orange).

Mouthfeel – Heavy mouthfeel, on the watery side. Quite refreshing with a smooth finish.

Overall – This one slots into the “refreshing summer beer” category. Sediment a tasseographer could read. Worth a shot if you like refreshing wheat beers a bit on the sweet side.

Pours on the darker side of blond.

Very little head. Smell is a bit funky, candy, paste, chalky.

Taste is citrus. Orange rind, lemon/lime. Bit of spunk at the end.

Not as refreshing as I would normally look for in a Wit. Tart.

I think it’s pretty decent, but not something to seek out.

A: Hazy golden color with a fluffy off white head.

S: Oranges, some wheat and a touch of coriander.

T: There's a light hit of wheat upfront followed by a huge hit of overripe orange. The finish gets a little too sweet with some cotton candy flavor at the end.

Cloudy pale orange yellow and thin white head with no retention or lacing. Wheat and yeast aroma with hints of orange. Semi-dry bready wheat with subtle orange finish and light candy sweetness. Thin watery and slightly fizzy with pleasant fuzzy lingering.

Pretty enjoyable with no real saltiness that you typically get. Nothing very bold and the yeastiness dissapears. Not as much orange as I might have liked. It certainly wasn't the blood orange beer I hoped to pair with "The Girl Who Played With Fire".

Served in Imperial pint. Poured a very cloudy (as in solid, not even a little opaque) yellow, with a slight orangeish tint. The beer had just a very thin cap of white head that formed into, for lack of a better term, curds, with a slight ring around the edge. What head there was was very murky and had low retention but decent lacing.

There was some noticeable citrus upfront in the nose, with grain, spice and yeast in the background. Just an OKish aroma. On the tongue, all the expected notes of the style were present in an understated way, but tasted like someone had squeezed an orange into the beer. Just shy of typical all around.

The body was a bit off for the style, a bit thicker and not as crisp. Drinkability was average, but the beer left a thick layer of sediment on the bottom of the glass.

Overall, not exactly a terrible beer, but also short of average. If you see it, you don't have to try it, but I won't discourage you either.
