Orange X by AleSmith Brewing Company

 

Rating: 5/5
 
Orange X by AleSmith Brewing Company is a 5.25% ABV American Extra Pale Ale with oranges.
Amazing refreshing beer that really captures some very good citrus and orange flavors. A butt load of oranges all over and still including some nice tropical hop notes to boot. Don’t you wanna wanna Fanta! Lol straight up…. orange juice, orange peel, orange Fanta.
 
I chose Asuka Langley Sohryu from Neon Genesis Evangelion for this pairing since she fits with the colors.

Orange Wheat by Hangar 24

946221_10101160623168830_1217353415_nRating: 3.9/5

Orange Wheat by Hangar 24 is a 4.6%ABV Fruit beer brewed with locally grown oranges, wheat and barley. Seems more like Belgian white style but I guess it is a different style all together

Label: 
Crisp, Tangy, and Refreshing. The citrus aroma, light airy mouthfeel, and tangy finish are this unfiltered beer’s trademarks. This is accomplished by adding whole locally grown oranges throughout the brewing process, which perfectly coalesce with the wheat and barley base.

I have had this beer many times that I can’t count. This is Hangar 24’s flagship beer. In fact, first time I heard about Hangar 24 was because of this beer. 3 years ago I looked for this one for a while. Back then it was not as common to find it. The first I tried it, I was probably to me one of the best orange beers out there. Better than Shocktop and Bluemoon. So it was worth the try. I haven’t really done a review since this one became common but in all fairness I wanted to give this a review. Fragrances are a lot like a Belgian white but with more orange. Aromas of wheat, coriander spice, floral hops, honey, biscuit, lemon and lemon peel. The Flavors are of orange juice, orange aid, lemon, tangy lemon peel, biscuit bread, slight wheat and coriander, orange gummy bear flavor and floral hops. The beer is very refreshing. The beer does not have an overwhelming form and most of the flavors medium to light . This beer is very drinkable, crisp and refreshing. Taking this one over a lager definitely any day. IT is more like a session Hefeweizen or a session Witbier. Good stuff for sure that even lager drinkers can appreciate.
