Kind of looks like orange soda.  No idea how you get that color though.

I brewed an IPA once with Vienna + Oats, and over an oz/gal dry hops. Came out pretty orange depending on the light and hazy. Look like the suns hitting it perfect.

HDR + some weird photoshop tweaks.  Everyone wants their photography to look like a surrealist nightmare these days.

Brew it hazy and over-saturate slightly?

Haze, lighting, and a touch of aromatic malt should do it.

C40 + flaked wheat + Photoshop tweaking.

I brewed the one on the right. I bet if I'd shot this pic outdoors and tweaked it, it would look the same.

I've done a couple beers with Golden Naked Oats that have a similar color.

Is there a benefit to mash oversaturation or should it only be done post-fermentation?

So if I understand you folks correctly the method to obtain this hazy orange color consists of two steps:
1. a combination of something like c40 and some unmalted non-barley.
2. photoshopping.

Lots of yeast in suspension will also reflect the flash.
