As hard as I tried,I could not like this beer! Smelled sweet. Tasted sweet. Looked sweet. I don’t know..but this one should just stay on the self,right next to the Sparks orange flavored malt. UCK!!

Yellow-orange with no head at all. Interesting aromas of sugar-coated oranges, flowers, and mild hops. Texture was on the light and watery side. Intensely sweet; kind of reminded me of an Orange Julius or an orange-flavored candy with cream filling. Very mild bitterness. Dessert beer.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Floral, orange aroma. Hints a bit of soap. Tastes better than I expected, only in that it doesn’t taste BAD, rather it’s uninteresting just tangy and orange. Interestingly creamy body.

Ok, well I guess this is a beer. Thin, sweet, and boring matches with an orange soda taste. Interesting if you want something new, but not really a beer for all people.

Hmmm, not good. Tasted like slightly sweet orange soda with some beer dumped in it. I knew I wouldn’t like it, but decided to try it anyway.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma of hard candy orange. Sweet, orange extract, grainy flavor. Some noticable hops. As a lambic this falls pretty short. Not very satisfying.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2004 Very interesting from the bottle. Dark gold with a copper tint. Has a strong aroma of oanges, flowers, vanilla and sickly sweetness. Reminds me of a Jolly Rancher. The taste is obviously orange soda. A one trick pony that hits you over the head with the oranges. Fairly interesting just because it is different, but not something you would want very often. Had this again and I enjoyed it. It is refreshing and unique.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear, golden ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Terrific retention and adequate lacing. Smells like Orange Crush. The flavor tastes like a suicide made with 1/2 Orange Crush and 1/2 American Pale Ale. The flavor is not nearly as sweet as the aroma. Well-balanced. Light-bodied with lively carbonation. Short, bitter, dry finish. Better than anticipated, but nothing to write home about.

Amber with quickly disappearing head. Pleasant aroma of oranges but weak amd watery in the mouth and weak in the flavor department. Would not drink again.

Wheat & fruit beer night here, and this is just not good. Darker side of golden, white non-lasting head. Nose is orange crush and my CK Crave (orangey, spicy, vanilla cologne) Smells good on me, but not on my beer. Flavor is similar with with added notes of light honey and orange zest. Light bodied, fizzy carbonation, orange crush (like REM)finish. Nice try anyway...
