2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Served from bottle into a Sweetwater snifter. Poured a golden yellow with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount instantly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, orange, and wheat. The flavor was of sweet malt, cream, orange, and wheat. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was an average brew. Nothing really stood out on this one at all for me from other brews of the same style. There are so many good brews in this style, it would be hard to do so, but this one felt like it didn't even make an effort. Yes, the orange was there. Yes, the cream was there. But that's it? I guess you can't win them all. Glad I got the chance to tick it, but doubt I would go out of my way to do so again.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Interesting tidbit to start, the bottle was threaded but the cap was not...interesting. Here’s the rest.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance looked fine. Hazy burnt orange color with a big foamy white and bubbly head. Once it dissipated, there’s no lacing.
The smell had the orange and some off-soapy / wants-to-be cream-colored aroma.
The taste was sweet through the orange. Soapiness becomes stronger and makes the beer harder to put down. Soapy aftertaste with no finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a good sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed appropriately styled and it didn’t seem bad to me.
Overall, the palate was the best thing about it but normally I don’t go after beers just how they feel on the palate, so I will most likely not have this again.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle. Short lived bubbly head, sadly no lacing. Aroma is orange all right, but the lack of creaminess (as expected with no lacing) made this a disappointment. Medicinal taste, more like syrup than creamsickle.

"i like the honey ok, otherwise this is just another thin, boring beer. heavy on the flavoring, low on the complexity. not exciting at all, but not much was expected."

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

1.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pours light orange with white head. Aroma smells like orange cough syrup, sweet, very sweet oranges. Taste is crisp, very orange, bitter backbone, really really gross.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma right up front is citrus /oranges. Disappointed that is does not have a substantial cream ale body or mouth feel. Light airy head, oranges dominate aroma and taste. A good summer beer, easy to drink and refreshing, but lacks most of the true cream ale characteristics.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
pours slightly hazy veru light golden with a nice white head, some retention and lacing. bursting orange blossom water aroma - not really soothing - akin to some floor cleaners, some candied citrus peel, cream ale as in orange and cream-flavored things, dust-covered orange-flavored candies, bitter and lightly astringent herbs and grass, watered down yet sweetish pale malted bill. moderately low carbonation, light body - oily, very lightl astringent, semi-sweet and kind of bland herbal-grassy short finish. blah.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma is a nice orange and citrus. Flavor is orange with a touch of "green" bitterness from the blossom. Overall not a terrible beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle on the balcony of my daughters place in Newport Beach CA on 7th July 2014. Cloudy light orange/tangerine with a thin white head. Oranges rule the aroma and taste (what a surprise). I thought it over sweetened with a barely sugar and honey feel to the overall taste and feel. Not my cup of tea, but I can see some people taking to it.
