Buffalo Bill’s 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 Bill’s Orange Blossom Cream Ale finishes dry, juicy, sweet, and refreshing. For a fruit beer, this is a winner.

by far my favorite beer ever....perhaps im a bit biased since im from NorCal!?

Its great for summer. but dont expect an Orange Two Tone popcicle taste....if you want that try Dudes Blood Orange from Torrance, CA!

this one is definitely more floral!

This poured with a kind of cloudy orange but had a watery thin appearance. The head was thin fizzy and when it settled there was nary a trace of it.

The scent is a bit artificial with a syrupy sweet peach aroma. A backdrop of orange is present.

The taste is just strange. I envisioned a creamy Dreamsicle flavor but got a metallic orange fruit roll up, waxy and medicinal.

The feel is fairly thin with a little carbonation bite.

Wow, I really had grand hopes on this but was seriously disappointing.
