Got better with age
I agree with others here that the orange extract was way too strong when first brewed. I used this to blend with other beers I have kegged. It mellows out strong IPA's. This keg is now a year old and it really mellowed nicely and now I love it. I will brew this again and try using half of the orange extract provided.

Flavoring is overwhelming
Out of the many, many products I've bought here at AIH, this is the only one I will weigh in on as ABSOLUTELY FOUL. This wheat beer does not have the backbone to stand up to the god awful artificial flavoring of the Lorann oil that comes with the kit (all other oils have been amazing). I think this is just a one-off misadventure in home brewing, but this kit should be avoided at all costs. I'll try the Blue Moon clones in the future that use orange peel instead. AVOID; I ended up pouring it out. Heartbreaking.

Overpowering Orange Flavor
At one and a half weeks after bottling, it had an over-powering bitter orange flavor as if you were chewing a piece of orange peel. But at the three week mark, it seemed to settle down and is now very drinkable with a mild orange flavor and a slight bitter after taste. I would brew again, but only use half of the orange oil included.

Crowd pleasing beer for the summer months
This beer style is normally not my favorite, but I was pleasantly surprised by how this beer turned out. Beyond my tastes, it was a huge hit among my friends and a friendly beer tasting event that I recently participated in. It has a crisp, very well balanced taste...you get the citrus flavor without too much sweetness that you sometimes get in these beers.

Great Simple Kit
The kit is simple and easy to work with. You will however need at least some small background knowledge in brewing as the directions are super generic. The beer tastes very good so far. (Just bottled it up last night!)

Huge Hit This Summer!
I picked this kit to round out an order of two other recipe kits--both IPAs--earlier this summer, and I'm very glad I did. This beer was a huge hit with the family, especially my girlfriend's folks. It came out very crisp, with lots of lemon citrus character from the citra hops, and a slightly sweet orange flavor from the packaged orange extract. I also expected the orange oil to kill the head entirely, but it was surprisingly well-carbonated, with lots of lacing. I'll definitely be ordering this again, once the weather warms up!
