Tangerine Wheat Beer

Around a month or so ago I was drinking Tangerine Wheat Beer brewed by Lost Coast Brewery & Cafe in Eureka, California. There is a strange tangerine-head person on the label peeking out from a wheat field. Holy Cow! There is a giant tangerine bang up the nose when you open this beer up. If you smell long enough, you will smell some wheat, but mostly it smells like a kids sports drink or an orange vitamin. Flavors? Well, tangerine, and a lot. The label says "A hint of tangerine" and it is a liar! You will also taste wheat. Mouthfeel is dirty. Also some metallic flavors in the background. Very watery, so much so that if you were a kid drinking this, you'd probably ask for more of the drink powder to be mixed in your glass. Tangy. Hey that's it! It's Tang with a lot of carbonation. Very one-dimensional. I'm not a fan!

Seems people love it or hate it. Actually, I was neither, just in the middle.
