Poured from a 12 oz can. Aroma is sweet with a lot of orange character and some hints of vanilla and honey. Light wheat character with a touch of bubblegum. Pours a pale straw gold with a small, white head that recedes fairly quickly to the edges where it lingers for a bit before disappearing. Light lacing and faint legs. Flavor is slightly sweet with a nice wheat note and a touch of orange character. Some light honey and floral notes. Light bitterness. Some faint bubblegum and a touch of butter.. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, an alright beer and easy drinking, but nothing exceptional. Base beer seems decent, but the adjuncts are over the top.

Can: Hazy yellow gold with a tall white head. Aroma is orange, vanilla cream.... Flavour is creamy, orange and vanilla malts....sweet wheat malt. The general consensus is creamsickle......and the majority is spot on. Tasty and fun. Really great flavour.

Holy orange batman! I’m not sure if I’ve had more orange in a beer before. Sweet, but not overly so. Reminds me of an orange creamsicle. Somehow works.

Très vanillé sans être trop sucré avec un sursaut de mandarine. Très balancé et délicat, belle surprise.

Gets points for being different. Orange shandy aroma. Citrus. Golden pale ale color. Orange is on the glass, which might be unnecessary. Light but creamy palate. First impression is that I am drinking a cream sickle. Citrus notes with slightly dry finish. Interesting.

On tap: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy creamsicle. It’s a transparent golden-orange with a one finger white head that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a very fine ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of wheat with a hint of citrus. The finish has moderate creamsicle. It’s light bodied with moderate-lively carbonation. Overall, an okay summer thirst quencher, but it’s a little sweet with the creamsicle flavors.

Draft at Papago during RBWG 11. Pours an orange golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have orange citrus, floral notes, vanilla, it does give the sensation of a Creamsicle, smooth, light bodied.

Smells like women's perfume. Tastes like (I assume) women's perfume. If you've tasted women's perfume and I'm wrong about the flavor then let me know...Obviously not for me.
