DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Appearance was a hazy orange with no head at all. The aroma was a faint orange creamsicle smell, and faint orange blossom floral notes. The taste was a taste of soft orange and light malt, it really had a taste of an orange soda or like a Fresca, not really what I am looking for in a beer. Feel was like a soda - thin light and somewhat fizzy. It could appeal to the right person, it's not off-putting. It's an uneventful fruit beer. --- JPS

HuskerTan (2048) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - DEC 28, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. A- Orange, herbs. A- Dark orange color, hazy liquid, minimal head. T- Fake citrus tones, subtle honey tones, spices. P- Light body, creamy texture, average carbonation, mild bitter finish. O- The orange flavor I was expecting was definitely lacking. Overall, I was hoping for a lot more from this beer.

Buffalo Bills Orange Blossom Cream Ale has an extremely thick, creamy, off-white head, with brown specs noticeable at the top, a hazy, highly fizzy, yellow-gold appearance, with numerous suspended brown chunks, and a heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of particularly sharp orange with a background of white bread. Taste is of oranges, orange peel, some honey, citric acid, and white bread, with a shade of tap water. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Buffalo Bills Orange Blossom Cream Ale finishes dry, juicy, sweet, and refreshing. For a fruit beer, this is a winner. RJT

Bottle, as pictured. I got it as a favor from a guest and used most of it to cook some peppers for a chili. Taste was very sweet, very cough syrup-y. It had a very fake citrus flavor to it. Gross.

Drake (13259) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Another one of those "how have I never rated this" beers. 12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a hazy orange color with a thin fizzy head that fades quickly. Aroma of intense orange with a bit of earthiness. The taste is orange, pale malts, very faint hops. Thin and watery. Meh.

nellycale (213) - Caledonia, Minnesota, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Pale, hazy yellow with no head to speak of. The nose is orangey and malty. The aroma is intense, yet soft. Orange is very much present, with malt, vanilla, and floral aromas in the background. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I fell for this beer simply because of the pretty packaging and was totally impressed with the not-so-frilly-feminine taste that I thought it might have. It was strong and rough, but paired nicely with everything I ate. My mother, who is not so much of a fan of bitter-tasting beers, did not like it very much, but I would definitely purchase Buffalo Bills again.

Poured from a bottle, San Diego. Clear orange body that doesnt look like beer, minimal head. Aroma of orange soda. A bit of an astringent flavor, with some orange that really isnt very good. This could have been a good beer, and I do love lambics and well executed fruit beers.
