Orange Blossom Ale. Inspired by the rich fragnance of blooming orange groves, this copper colored ale combines the flavor and aroma of real orange tree flowers with a well balanced, full flavored ale to produce a real treat for the senses. Munich and light Caramel malts produce a smooth, creamy malt complexity, and American hops give the beer a bright, refreshing bitterness and dry finish. The orange blossom aroma blends superbly with the other beer flavors, providing a unique dimension that is the perfect complement to tangy, herbal or spicy foods, soft cheeses or pastries.

"i agree with the first rating, adding that the experience is more similar to drinking an orange crush soda than an ale or lager. BA gives them props for uniqueness and using real orange blossoms, but this is a macro-drinking girls beer at best. 1/09-tried again, worse then i remembered, as orange crush isn’t as nasty."

Can from drowland. Light orange pour with little to no head. Aroma is funky orange and vanilla. Taste is kinda weird, fruity, and leather.

Can courtesy drowland. He sent this to me over 2 years ago, I let this beauty age in all it's glory. Pours a cloudy yellow orange color with a light bubbly white head. Lots of yeast chunks in this. Aroma is clay, orange kook-aid, sugar, and orange flavored bubble gum. Flavor is tart, grape juice pucker, citrus and gum. Yikes. Thanks Danny. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can:   Pale caramel with a strong orange hue, thin sudsy white head, little lacing.   Orange popsicle nose... not joking.   Orange popsicle on the tongue.   Maybe a little of that orange creamsicle too.   Wow, I even get notes of that damn wood stick you lick to get each and every last drop.   Very light hops on the backside, orange creamsicle hops.   Average body and mouthfeel.   Finish is much the same... hmm...   Some citrus like bitterness on the backside, candyish citrus bitterness.   This is too much like an orange popsicle for me to take too seriously.   Not a fan of the liquid orange popsicle.

Hazy orange amber beer, little white head. Light crisp palate. Creamy malt supports tart bitter orange and peel. Finishes a little over dry but that’s okay because I was expecting a sweet mess here! But it’s tart, crisp and refreshing!

16 oz can. Oooh my, high alky aroma.Smells more like a 8% malt liquor. Looks quite orange with a decent head. Taste is better than it smells fer sure, I was expecting some kinda alky kit lager thing but this is not too bad initially. Creamy on the tongue, decent sizzling co2. Taste is quite unique, it does have some fruit in there and I do think its orange but not really citrus. Adds a little tartness to ti which helps it come along. Not bad in taste but probably couldn’t do more than a couple of these before the thing gets yah.

Tampa, Fl - Total Wine - 16 oz can. Pours a peachy-orange with a tight white head. Artificial orange aroma - akin to citrus scented cleanser. Flavor is artificial and cloying. Cheap orange flavored hard candy comes to mind, and the flavor that sticks in your mouth when you drink orange juice after brushing your teeth. Mouthfeel coats your mouth in an an oh-so unsatisfactory fashion. Stay away.
