Found an unexpected gem with this one. Semi-hazy pour with cream and orange nose. The taste was quite sweet, with large samples of orange and cream soda in the taste. The finish was of a citrus acidity. I found this beer to be extremely satisfying and refreshing.

Hey my tastes are very ecclectic and I like a good stout as much as the next guy, but I really love beers made with fruit. Sure Lambics are better quaity but I tasted the fresh honey and fresh orange peel. It was a refreshing brew. Okay maybe it need a little more bite but it was a mild beer to drink on a hot day and quite original.

A fruit beer with definite orange flavor. While the orange is quite strong it is not at all displeasing, and it gives an excellent summer feeling to this tasty brew!

Bottles. Brodie Lane HEB in SW Austin, TX. For what itís trying to do, this beer is freaking awesome! I rate it so high because it has orange and cream pegged. Pours a clear orange-yellow with nice bubbles. Starts with a white porous head, but loses the froth and lingers around the edge. Immediately you get aroma of oranges... the peel, the pulp. Tastes like orange juice, hints of lemon even. Creamy to the palate. As it warms, the orange expands and takes on almost floral characteristics. The best thing to do is to slice real oranges or tangerines and set a round slice on top of the beer, so that it flavors each sip. And it looks very cool. Squeeze another wedge into beer for hyper-orange taste. Very light and tasty, good for Spring/Summer, drinking a 6-pack and not being weighed down.

Wow, I must have got the best six-pack of this ever based upon what other people rated, but I think this beer is excellent, perhaps the best fruit beer Iíve had. Smells like orange peel. To me, this beer tastes almost exactly like an Orangesicle, (probably the greatest ice cream truck vendor item available). Itís just slightly less creamy than an Orangesicle in the finish. The only way this could be more orange-y is if the color were a bright orange. Iím a fan.

Great for after working or walking around during a 100 degree plus day. On a cooler day, I could see where this might be a little over the top flavor-wise, but was tasty and refreshing to me.

I find it to be a nice change of pace - like an alcohol popsicle - I like it frigid cold like a popsicle but wife likes it at room temp so thatís nice - it plays.

Very cloudy orange pour in the glass. Looks like a Czech lager, but tastes almost like a Sunny Delight. Not for everyone. Rated 5/7/04
