Beer of the month: Buffalo Bill's Orange Blossom Ale

July 16, 2009 | 12:24 pm

Blossom Those crazy Belgians are always adding orange peel to their wheat beers.

An East Bay brewery goes them one further — it puts the juice and the flowers into an ale, giving it a little orange juice tang, as you’d expect. Surprisingly, though, the sweet orange blossom scent shows up more in the palate than in the nose. The nose actually suggests a fruity white wine, perhaps a Semillon, rather than an ale.
