On tap at oak creek. Pours a nice hazy gold color with a white head. Aroma is citrus, vanilla and malt. Flavor is creamsickle, vanilla, wheat, lots of sweetness. Very creamy slick mouthfeel but not something Iíd want to drink a lot of.

A little malty aftertaste, but it is light and refreshing. The aroma is that of a cream-sicle. Worth the try if you are in the mood for a summer refresher.

Tap at the Oak Creek brewpub. They were out of the Hefeweizen so they poured this in itís place in the sampler. I hadnít read any descriptions or anything about the beer. I was surprised that I liked it as much as I did and would have thought it was a soda if I didnít know it was a beer. My tasting notes: Weak orange/yellow color that looksl ike watered-down honey. Nose is sweet like carmel candy chews. Tastes a lot like cream soda and not beer at all. A sweet treat.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 22, 2009
On tap at brew pub. Pours clear gold with a white head. The nose is vanilla and orange jolly rancher. The taste is vanilla and tang. Tastes a lot like an Orange Julius. Medium bodied. Not very good, but different.

Had this on tap and sincerely thought about spitting it back into the glass!!! I can see that others have noted it’s similarity both in aroma and flavor to a creamsicle (vanilla and orange)...only if a bully met you at the ice cream truck, pushed you on the ground, and pissed on your popsicle. Thin, no head, and overly sweet...BLAH!!!

big vanilla and orange nose quite reminiscent of a creamcycle. golden beer, whispy thin head. creamy orange flavors on the sweet side. novelty for sure with barely a note of actual beer coming through. it tastes good i suppose, but way too novelty to take seriously.

Draft from Papago. I usually don’t like fruity, sweet beers, but this was nice. Complex for a wheat. Like a creamsixle in a glass.

<b>On tap @ Papago</b> - Pours a clear light golden color with a small white head. Light lacing. Aroma is oranges. What else? Flavor is cream oranges with a hint of vanilla. A smooth, light to medium body beer. This beer was a pleasant suprise. A must try when in the Valley of the Sun.

On tap at Papago. Pours a golden wheat color with a fluffy head. Nice creamsicle aroma, with a touch of grain and zest. Flavor is the same. Seriously easy drinking and delicious!

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2009 All of the creamsicle descriptions are perfectly accurate. This beer has an interesting flavor and is certainly aromatic, yet the recipe seems to have changed and resulted in a diet version of how I remember it. Way too high in water content and fairly one-note. Good on a hot day, but starting to approach novelty status.
