This beer caught me completely off guard. The name makes me think it would be more citrus, however the vanilla notes with the orange give a surprisingly sweet buttery aroma and flavor. In love with this beer.

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" isn’t 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.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2007 Draft at papago with unclemattie. Cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma of wheat, oranges, and cream. Tastes creamy and sweet with lots of orange and vanilla. Creamsickle, just like the description says. A pleasant refreshing treat.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2010 Light and superbly drinkable. Hits the tongue smooth with nuances of burnt orange and a lingering vanilla aftertaste...very nice! K- 4.3/5 S-4.1/5

A wonderful surprise from Papago. I thought all they knew how to make was really big high alcohol beers. While the alcohol may be missing the flavor isn’t. This is a nice orange hefeweiss with a hint of vanilla so it gets a creamsicle type of taste. While this beer isn’t for everyone it certainly is designed well as a summer thirst quenching beer. It gets a little bit warm in Phoenix in the summer and this beer helps cool you down. Served in a hefeweiss glass, a nice slightly orange color. Good head and a nice aroma and flavor. It won’t blow you away like the Hopfather or Wheatwine they make but it is still a well made beer.

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.

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.

Clear golden color out of the tap with a small off white head. Nose of short bread cookies and orange peel. The cookie taste in this is huge, with white sugar, orange juice and pound cake. This is a nice use of fruit in a very tastey beer.

Tap at both Papago and OHSO nano. Orange marmalade short bread cookie nose. Rich taste: rich orange blossom cookie and short bread. Really nice. Great palate, refreshing. Clean. Vanilla addition is boss.
