This beer strikes me as unnatural. The "natural" flavors are unbalanced and overwhelming making this beer unworthy to be called "craft." Only those using real juice are able to make a good tasting fruit beer.

Draft @ Aunt Chilada’s. Pours clear golden color with white head. Aromas of wheat, oranges, and vanilla. Tastes like a wheat Creamsicle. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

Draft at Alice Cooperstown while visiting: pours a light copper color. Taste is sweet and floral with an easy taste that goes down nice

Ok beer. Taste kind of orange. When I have to choose between domestic, Four Peaks and Orange Blossom is available. I am grabbing Orange Blossom

found at liquor barn in Prescott Valley AZ. Pours slightly hazy orange, Aroma vanilla cream dough, taste like cereal with small citrus notes. Mouth feel has some fix and sparkle, sweet crisp finish. More like a cream soda than a beer.

Taster at the brewery... This is a orange creamcicle of a wheat beer... Light and refreshingly...

Draught at Papago, 12/28/15.
Very clear honey-colored beer has an immediately receding white head.
Vanilla and strong, but not offensive, orange character in the nose. Sort of candy corn-like. There’s some wheat and other cereal character behind it that somewhat saves the beer, adding a bit of beer character.
Flavor is full of orange and vanilla sweetness. It’s not syrupy or cloying, but a bit artificial and somewhat dominant. Heavily watery texture could certainly stand to have a bit more depth and the carbonation needs to be tightened up, especially considering this is a wheat beer. No real flaws, though.

Can: Pounded 3 of these on a hot summer day in Phoenix and I must say it was pretty enjoyable. Cloudy gold with a small white ring head. Definite orange in the aroma and flavor. Fruity is the key word but its not annoying.

This is an orange Creamsicle bomb for sure, nothing subtle about it. And vanilla. I remembered it being more natural and subtle years ago, but that could just be my memory. I enjoy this now and again. Personally I prefer Hangar 24?s Orange Wheat in this genre.
