Pours a hazy sunset golden color. Smell was tropical oranges. Taste was very citrus with oranges and tangerine. Mouth feel soft but had an artificial fruit finish. In the summer at a cookout this brew is not bad.

Cloudy gold color with a foamy white head of about finger tallness. Head goes away quickly but leaves some lacing on the glass.

Smell is sweet malty tangerine and orange.Seems like a bit of lemon on the smell as well. Very pleasent aroma!

Taste is heavy on the malts with the orange citrus coming in as a second flavor.

Mouth is a bit chewy with a lot of melt presence. The finish however is fairly crisp and breaks off nicely.

If you take a sniff as you take a sip the smell helps your palate in following the flavor. This can only be be done with the appropriate glass. You really need to get the aroma with the sip. This really brings out that tangerine, orange flavor. Definitely gauranteed orange flavored burps as well thanks to the carbonation. Overall I like this shandy but would rather stick with the lemon shandy for my hot vegas days/nights.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 6/11/2018. Pours opaquely hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of tangerine, orange juice, lemon, peach, melon, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/clove, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of oranges, fruity/spicy yeast, and bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big tangerine, orange juice, lemon, peach, melon, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/clove, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/grassy bitterness, peppery yeast spiciness; and light citrus tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, orange juice, lemon, peach, melon, citrus peel/zest, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of oranges, fruity/spicy yeast, and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/tart/spiciness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitter/spiciness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, creamy/bready/grainy, and lightly sticky/tangy/acidic mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a delicious shandy! All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of oranges, fruity/spicy yeast, and bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful for the low ABV. Perfectly balanced wheat beer and orange juice flavors. Surprising amount of yeast presence as well. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.
