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.

<b>On tap @ Papago</b> - Pours a clear light golden color with a small white head. Light lacing. Aroma is oranges. What else? Flavor is cream oranges with a hint of vanilla. A smooth, light to medium body beer. This beer was a pleasant suprise. A must try when in the Valley of the Sun.

On tap at Papago. Pours a golden wheat color with a fluffy head. Nice creamsicle aroma, with a touch of grain and zest. Flavor is the same. Seriously easy drinking and delicious!

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2009 All of the creamsicle descriptions are perfectly accurate. This beer has an interesting flavor and is certainly aromatic, yet the recipe seems to have changed and resulted in a diet version of how I remember it. Way too high in water content and fairly one-note. Good on a hot day, but starting to approach novelty status.

Their best seller...not real big but for a tasty session beer this hits the spot...a touch of orange, zesty, nice carbonation, wheat, slight banana, vanilla, creamy, cream soda...tasty.

On tap 1/24/08. This must be one of the "tempermental" kegs AJM mentioned below. Iíve had this beer in the past and it was an excellent fruit/lambic style beer. This batch was not even in the same ballpark as the previous batches. Iím sure a blind tasting would show that these arenít even the same beers. This keg should have been trashed. Make sure you get a sample before you buy a full pint. Hopefully next batch reaches "back, back, back in time".

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2007
On draught at the Papago Brewing Company tavern in Phoenix, AZ. Pours a hazy golden pale blonde brew with a fast dissolving white head that dissipates clean. Aroma of light wheat bready malt, some flowery hops and a distinct character of a creamy orange dreamsickle. Taste is light to medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of wheat, some yeast and a orange cream soda character. Finish is semi-sweet, smooth, creamy with a orange dreamsickle aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2008 When this beer is on, there is little to stop it; but man are these kegs ever temperamental. Only in the last month has this been sold to other taps in the state, and the result was a quick sellout. The word "bouquet" isnít used very often on beer, but this absolutely has one. The oranges show up primarily at the finish, following a light-to-vanilla cream mid-palette to produce an absolute spot-on Creamiscle aftertaste. An absolute must when I am back in the PHX.

I was very impressed with this one, just like drinking an orange deamsicle. Very unique, very nice dessert beer. Probably would have rated it higher if I hadnít felt like I was drinking a girly drink.
