Default Beer and Orange Juice

For the most part, I'm definitely a purist when it comes to drinking my beer. I always drink from a proper glass depending upon style and I almost never add anything to my beer with the following exceptions (and only once and a while):

Woodruff or Raspberry syrup in Berliner Kindl Weissen (my SWMBO was awesome enough to get me two cases of this, one year for Christmas at $50 a case.)

and

I've recently discovered that orange juice can really compliment certain wheat beers and Belgian light ales especially. If you've never tried a good orange juice in your beer, I recommend it. You might be surprised. It's also a good excuse to enjoy a beer in the morning. How many of you have tried this combination before?

The only time I've ever had orange juice and beer together is in a drink we used to slam at the bars in Wisconsin called a "Wisconsin Lunchbox". It had equal parts beer and orange juice in a cocktail glass with a shot of amaretto in the center. You drank it all in one (or two) gulp.

They were great....until I got sick on them once.

Sorry for the hijack.

Sounds like a working man's mimosa. I bet it's tasty, but I probably won't be making any.

I don't drink wheat beer and maybe he orange juice is nice in that sort of stuf but it's not realy in my beer sphere.

Everything I need is already in the brew.

I've had beer and orange juice together before, and I agree, its actually not bad, of course that could have been the extra shot of vodka that was added .

A lot of places serve Blue Moon with an orange slice. The wheat homebrew sees orange juice now and then also...

I bought a sixer of Blue Moon and tried their recommendation of the orange slice. NASTY. GF liked it. Not for me. Actually put me off of Blue Moon permanently.

DO NOT drink O.J. after brushing your teeth. Everyone knows this rule, RIGHT?.

How much oj? I've used a tiny splash before when I didn't have an orange, but not much at all. I don't think I'd like much more than that.

Ever heard of a power driver? Equal parts OJ, Vodka, and Beer. It sounds disgusting and it is, but yes I've tried it. You can taste each ingredient used.

I've done the splash of orange juice before; but in some instances I'll sometimes mix as much as 1/3 juice to 2/3 beer.
