3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 Zacharyís, my 100th rating here. When they say that itís like a creamsickle, theyíre right. This seems like it may not be the best idea ever for beer. Still, it is drinkable, and those who donít like beer may find it a bit more palatable.

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 donít think I could ever drink an entire pint. Was a real hit with the ladies, especially the beer haters.

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 Iíd want to drink a lot of.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Tap at the Oak Creek brewpub. They were out of the Hefeweizen so they poured this in itís place in the sampler. I hadnít 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 didnít 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.

On tap at brew pub. Pours clear gold with a white head. The nose is vanilla and orange jolly rancher. The taste is vanilla and tang. Tastes a lot like an Orange Julius. Medium bodied. Not very good, but different.

Had this on tap and sincerely thought about spitting it back into the glass!!! I can see that others have noted it’s similarity both in aroma and flavor to a creamsicle (vanilla and orange)...only if a bully met you at the ice cream truck, pushed you on the ground, and pissed on your popsicle. Thin, no head, and overly sweet...BLAH!!!

big vanilla and orange nose quite reminiscent of a creamcycle. golden beer, whispy thin head. creamy orange flavors on the sweet side. novelty for sure with barely a note of actual beer coming through. it tastes good i suppose, but way too novelty to take seriously.

Draft from Papago. I usually don’t like fruity, sweet beers, but this was nice. Complex for a wheat. Like a creamsixle in a glass.
