Poured from a bottle. Clear fizzy golden color, medium white frothy head. Nice orange aroma. Light crisp body with a mild orange flavor and a smooth finish. Nice summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden orange with a small white head. Smell reminds me of an orange creamcicle. Taste is orange and tangy- nice, but not something I'd drink on a regular basis.

The innovator of pumpkin beer, Buffalo Bills has another winner here with Orange Blossom Cream ale. Orange-y aroma, golden color (fizz not included) beer with a light bitterness that blends well with the orange and honey flavors.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2011 Rerated numbers 3/2011- not as good as it used to be - Beautiful orange soda aroma, no kidding. Typical pale yellow american lager color. No head, just a ring around the inside edge of the glass. Taste is oranges but it does not distract from the fact that this is a decent beer. A cool variation on a beer, better than most fruit beers Iíve tasted. Not syrupy sweet, medium dry. Good carbonation. That orange aroma keeps waving itís flag. I like this, would probably buy again. Finish is gentleman lager-like. Honestly, I was expecting something hoppy with a bitter citrus rind flavor, but this is not bitter at all. This is just plain friendly orange cream ale.

Pale amber in color with a white head. Lots of orange and floral notes on the nose. Not so much orange on the palate but more orange blossom. They really mean it when they say "blossom" with this one. Cream comes through on the finish. My only complaint with this brew is i wish it had a bit more of a cream ale feel to it. However, it still was pleasant and Iíll be purchasing it again.

Aroma is distinctly citrus almost artificial, appearance is a bit hazy, but I donít nessecarily know what to compare it to, a wit or a cream? My wife bought this for me, was not expecting much at all. But the flavor shocked me. This is a good beer. Pleasantly surprised!

In bottle. Pours a cloudy blonde colour with a decent white head. Aroma of orange blossom, a little soapy with elderflower. Nicely tart with lemon upfront, orange and orange rind. Heavy carbonation with moderate CO2 prickle. Foamy mouth-feel. OK.

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
