Draught at Papago Brewing Co., Scottsdale, AZ
Golden color. Light aroma and flavor of cookies; the mouthfeel is weak and dry; it has a light final touch of citrus fruits, tangerine. Original, but nothing special.

GABF 2009. You know, the description fits pretty well. Other orange blossom beers have been epic failures, but this one is pretty good. Pours hazy golden with a medium white head. Aroma is orange, cream, and vanilla. Flavor is orange creamsickle, wheat, vanilla, and spice. Fairly sweet and pretty tasty. Body is medium-light and the beer is refreshing.

On tap at Zachary’s, my 100th rating here. When they say that it’s like a creamsickle, they’re right. This seems like it may not be the best idea ever for beer. Still, it is drinkable, and those who don’t like beer may find it a bit more palatable.

Avengedpoet (329) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 23, 2009
On tap at the Oak Creek Brewing Co brew pub in Tlaquepaque. Smells like a cream sickle, tastes like a cream sickle. Exactly. It is fairly sweet, yet manages to not be overly cloying, which is surprising. Fairly drinkable and refreshing, though I don’t think I could ever drink an entire pint. Was a real hit with the ladies, especially the beer haters.

Rusty (1537) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 22, 2009
On tap at oak creek. Pours a nice hazy gold color with a white head. Aroma is citrus, vanilla and malt. Flavor is creamsickle, vanilla, wheat, lots of sweetness. Very creamy slick mouthfeel but not something I’d want to drink a lot of.

bbourque1976 (5) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 10, 2009 does not count
A little malty aftertaste, but it is light and refreshing. The aroma is that of a cream-sicle. Worth the try if you are in the mood for a summer refresher.

HighWine (954) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2009
Tap at the Oak Creek brewpub. They were out of the Hefeweizen so they poured this in it’s place in the sampler. I hadn’t read any descriptions or anything about the beer. I was surprised that I liked it as much as I did and would have thought it was a soda if I didn’t know it was a beer. My tasting notes: Weak orange/yellow color that looksl ike watered-down honey. Nose is sweet like carmel candy chews. Tastes a lot like cream soda and not beer at all. A sweet treat.
