Well here it is!

I took this picture this past weekend. Tastes great. I'm very happy with this beer. It smells more orangey than it tastes. I imagine as you said, the orange taste will come through stronger after a little while. However, I'm not sure if it will be around long enough.

I ended up with 46 bottles. As I said, I just opened it this weekend, and after the super bowl party I am down to 26 bottles now. (there were only 4 of us)

I'll definitely make this again.

Here is my latest batch....still a little under carbed. Smells wonderful and even the wife liked it.

I never did find Blood oranges, however I used Cara Cara instead. It came out awesome. The orange flavor is not overwhelming but definitely noticeable. This is a beer I will continue to brew, and when I do fine those blood oranges I will buy as many as I can and freeze them for when not in season. I posted a picture of the real thing and the home brew. The home brew is the one on the left and just a little darker. I'd expect the color to be more red with the Blood oranges. Thanks again for the recipe!

Here's my bad boy after almost 3 weeks of bottling (did a good 48 hour fridge sit). Forgive the iPhone photo quality.

The orange flavor is not 100% but overall its pretty good. I will definitely try a better version of this once blood oranges are back on the market.

Tasted my first this batch last week after it had been in bottles for about 2.5 weeks, and boy was it good! I went with navel oranges instead of blood oranges (my local grocery store didn't have them in stock at the time) and the flavor was still great, but I'll have to give this recipe another shot using blood oranges just to see the difference. I had this fermenting in a room that averaged about 74 degF and that didn't seem to have any negative effect, so I strongly recommend this recipe to anyone who's dealing with warmer climates. Below is a photo of the first glass poured.

Had this fermenting for the last few weeks and will be bottling tonight. Made as per recipe with blood oranges and looks great. Has a lovely orange smell and taste to it with just enough corriander to not overpower it. OG was 1051 with an FG of 1007 so an ABV of about 5.8%.

Will post again after it's had a few weeks in the bottle.

Marl out.

Made the recipe, turned out quite well.

Going to let it age until June/July for summer BBQ's.

Fortunately, we actually had blood oranges here in Yellowknife (big surprise), so followed recipe instructions and it turned out quite well.

Thanks for the recipe.
