Wow! Possibly better than the "real thing!"
This came out very well. The color is an cloudy golden. You can taste the organge and (maybe) the cardamom. It's very refreshing.

Fantastic Recipe
I did this one using brew-in-a-bag method, and it resulted in a fantastically drinkable beer. Yeast I used was the GigaYeast NorCal #1, and I kegged after three weeks in primary/secondary fermentation. This beer is a true hit and will be a staple in my kegerator for quite some time.

Orange & Spice - Very Nice!
Wow! I made this for my Summer Beer and it exceeded my expectations. I kegged it at 2.8 volumes CO2 and it’s delicious and creamy. For those that say they do not like craft beer, this is the beer you want for them. Great kit. ??

I just kegged this. AG recipe. Batch sparge. OG of 1.044 and FG of 1.004 with WLP001 in a 2L starter. Fermented at 68 x 3 days and increased to 72 to finish it up. The yeast worked a bit better than I anticipated. Flavor is pretty good, improved with an orange slice. I would have to sit and drink a Blue Moon with it to truly compare it but it’s an other wise crisp and nice flavored beer.

Pretty good
It’s good but it’s a little too fruity for my taste. If you like an orange flavor a lot make it like it is. I’ll make it again and use half of the orange peel.

Fantastic Brew!
This recipe is a good one! If you like the Blue Moon/Shock Top style of beers you will enjoy this even though it's not lager. This ale had a good head retention and a nice haze to it. Folks who have tried this enjoyed very much and it will more than likely become a staple for our home bar. I do think I'll try brewing this as a lager when the weather cools down just to see how that turns out.
