2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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 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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.
