jordinc (102) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Poured light golden with a quickly receding white head and light lacing. Not much by way of aroma. Pretty heavily carbonated, dry on the palate. Orange blossom notes do come through and the result is quite refreshing. There is a hint of grainy liquor that lingers on the tongue. An interesting take on the style, maybe a little bland if drinking more than one.

I get a honey Aroma that follows through into the sip. There is a moderate amount of carbonation but somehow the sweetness of the beer levels it out.

penguinfinity (90) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Bottle. Smells a little fruity and a little like caramel and/or honey. Hard to place but smells sweet. Light orange, almost no head. Taste follows the smell with an almost overpowering aftertaste of sweet. Not bubbly at all. Best described as a dessert beer.

jbruner (1998) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Had this too many times over the years. Pours a clear golden yellow from the bottle with thin white head. Aroma is sweet, grainy, floral, taste follows with a crisp finish. Nothing great, but another Florida beer, even if it is brewed in South Carolina.
