Although everyone seems to really like this beer I can't find much flavor in it to really like it. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

The absolute most refreshing beer to have on a hot summer day. Bar none. Tastes like cream soda. Its amazing. All you "Hop Heads" can stay away.

onceblind (8934) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 19, 2017
Slightly dark clear copper with a thin ivory cap. Lovely sweet nose of orange creme and sweet ole malt and cereal tones. Sweet cereal tone that also has some orange creamsicle nuances. Plain but semisweet malty and kinda tasty.

This is quite strange. Caramel, citrus, and spices. Its herbaceous and kind of sweet. Theres very little bitterness, yet its not overly sweet. Theres a lot going on and it never quite comes together. An okay summer beer, but even then, I would be far more tempted by other offerings.

It pours amber with orange tinges. The head is white with tinges of orange. It has a grainy sweet aroma, spice and orange. It has a sweet flavor with grain, orange, citrus, and spices. The sweetness flavoring comes throughout the taste experience. It feels a bit syrupy with a moderately light body.

tightslice (1187) - Redwood City, California, USA - OCT 28, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2016 On tap at Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is earthy spice (maybe some cinnamon), mild maltiness. Taste is mild lemony / herbal bitterness with some crisp carbonation. Not much going on here though.

odannyob (148) - Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2016
Bought a six pack of cans a couple weeks ago and letm sit in one of the beer refrigerators until just now. Poured from a can into a tumbler. A nice, clean aroma. A warm, rusted orangee of colorings. Taste-wise: a background of creme soda, citrus sweet and, again, cream soda. Overall, enjoyable.

eManu (544) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 3, 2016
From draft @ Taps KL. Pours dark amber brown and a thin off white head. Aroma of malts and nuts. Flavors of light malt, walnut, and herbs. Light sweet gum flavors. Interesting but somewhat strange marriage of flavors. Something different but a bit watery. Light sweetness and body.

ciocanelu (2055) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 28, 2016
Amber color with beige head. Aroma is quite malty with a slight hint of fruit acidity reminding a bit of cider. Taste is mainly malty with some fresh baked bread crust and some grains. Its just slightly sweet at first and finishes with a hint of earthy hops. Medium to light body with medium carbonation. Overall its quite interesting style of beer. Malty but not really sweet, easy drinking and light on the palate.
