3.4
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 12/20Chad9976 (1548) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2016
 
AROMA: All tangerine aroma; akin to holding the fruit in your hand. Slightly sweet. All fruit, nothing else. No esters. Not bad, but very one-note. 8/12

APPEARANCE: Very cloudy shade of pale orange. Spastic carbonation clearly visible. Average white frothy head. Good lacing.2/3

FLAVOR: Aggressive tangerine flavor, though it seems authentic. Slight soda flavor on finish. Generic pale wheat ale base. No esters. Fine, but simple.13/20

MOUTHFEEL: Light/medium body. Well carbonated. Smooth. Fairly clean finish. Refreshing. 5/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Tasty for sure, though borderline gimmicky. This should be in cans, not bottles.6/10

TOTAL SCORE: 34/50
