This light-bodied blonde is refreshingly crisp with bright orange citrus. These citrusy notes that resonate on your tongue along with the smoothness of the vanilla flavors really come together with every sip. This beer has great aromatics and the distinct orange flavor takes center stage on your palate. Don't let this blonde fool you into thinking it doesn't hold its own in the booziness department. Sitting pretty at a crisp 5.9%, it's alcohol by volume content is no slouch.
Overall, I had a great time with this beer. I'm a Texas Native and I can vouch that the weather here is scorching a good 90% of the time. The Dreamsicle Orange and Vanilla Blonde is a great cookout beer and undeniably has the ability to cool you down on those sweltering days. This brew also delivered a great sense of nostalgia by bringing back the memories of eating a creamy orange ice pop with my family on hot summer afternoons. Even when it's not miserably hot outside, I have found myself enjoying this particular brew when I'm craving something a little sweet, a little tangy and a little creamy. Ultimately, I have found that The Dreamsicle Orange and Vanilla Blonde is a great beer to have around for all occasions. I have to say that this brew is undoubtedly on my top five list for beers.
