If ever there could be a beer based on orange flavor, this is it. Rich smell of orange upon the poor.... sticks around for the duration of the drink too. Accompanying the orange aroma is a hint of bready hay, still reminding you that it is a beer and not soda pop. Poors a crystal clear golden hay-yellow, with about an inch-worth of head that settles rather quickly. The taste is very well balanced!! A light sweetness that complements the aroma beautifully! Has a floral orange taste that is a light topping on the wheat-base of the beer. Very light body (much like the white-bread version of beer budweiser) with a thin texture. Carbonation is fizzy, mimicking the orange soda pop that this beer could almost be mistaken for. The long, smooth finish is every bit as pleasant as the rest of the experience. Good ending to a good beer. I donít care what the rest of you say, this is a cream ale diserving of more than a 20 overall rating.

From a 12 oz bottle at the Beer Head Meetup BBQ in Falls Church, VA. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Aroma of powdered tang orange drink. Light orange soda pop flavor.

12 oz bottle from notes. Pours a clear yellow orange color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet soda like orange character, mild floral notes with base grainy malt. I will not have this again.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a moderate white head that quickly disappears. Nose actually smells like a creamsicle, with citrus and what almost smells like ginger. Taste is very orange and slightly sweet, and reminds me quite a bit of orange soda. Interesting beer.

HIGHB4LL (431) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Wilburís. Appearance: finger white head, does not last, golden yellow color, clear, slight lacing. Aroma: orange creamsicle, light yeastines, caramel, vanilla. Palate: light body, average carbonation, dry finish, coating texture. Taste: mildly sweet with a bitter lasting finish that is light. Overall, drinkable, and I love the aroma at first, but it burns you out quickly and the balance is off. Worth a try, and amazing with some icecream in it probably.

HoppyScallywag (56) - Butler, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Very citrusy aroma. Color is light gold, slightly orange. Pretty crisp taste, but the orange flavor is pretty bold. It's almost a generic/fake orange flavor added. It still enjoyable but I probably would have more than one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Appearance was a hazy orange with no head at all. The aroma was a faint orange creamsicle smell, and faint orange blossom floral notes. The taste was a taste of soft orange and light malt, it really had a taste of an orange soda or like a Fresca, not really what I am looking for in a beer. Feel was like a soda - thin light and somewhat fizzy. It could appeal to the right person, it's not off-putting. It's an uneventful fruit beer. --- JPS

HuskerTan (447) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - DEC 28, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. A- Orange, herbs. A- Dark orange color, hazy liquid, minimal head. T- Fake citrus tones, subtle honey tones, spices. P- Light body, creamy texture, average carbonation, mild bitter finish. O- The orange flavor I was expecting was definitely lacking. Overall, I was hoping for a lot more from this beer.

Buffalo Billís Orange Blossom Cream Ale has an extremely thick, creamy, off-white head, with brown specs noticeable at the top, a hazy, highly fizzy, yellow-gold appearance, with numerous suspended brown chunks, and a heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of particularly sharp orange with a background of white bread. Taste is of oranges, orange peel, some honey, citric acid, and white bread, with a shade of tap water. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Buffalo Billís Orange Blossom Cream Ale finishes dry, juicy, sweet, and refreshing. For a fruit beer, this is a winner. RJT
