COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Can: Pours a light amber/orange color with little head. The nose comes off a little artificial, but there’s some orange, some honey and malts there. Almost like jasmine tea is overwhelmingly jasmine, this has a bit too much orange blossom and it makes it seem perfumey and cloying even though the base beer is decent, albeit a little thin.
