Lost Coast Tangerine
My coworker Jack picked me up a bottle of Lost Coast Tangerine, a tangerine wheat beer, to try. The beer pours a translucent golden color with orange hues and a lofty foamy white head. The aroma is big on tangerine, very similar to the freshly peeled fruit. Only a faint hint of wheat is detectable behind the tangerine aroma, as it is very powerful. The taste is sweet and refreshing with lots of tangerine, some wheat, and lemon. The finish is a little sour and the after taste is bitter and is like sour fruit. The alcohol content is 5.0% ABV. The Tangerine was a refreshing and light beer with a crisp citrus profile. The finish wasn't completely satisfying for a wheat beer being a little sour and bitter, but overall the beer was enjoyable.
