“Tout Mais Le Coller” loosely translates to “everything but the stick,” and that is what we went for in this beer that is meant to clone the flavors of an orange cream popsicle. We brewed this cream ale with our friends from Noble Ale Works, adding a confident dosing of both lactose and natural orange flavor, creating a beverage that will remind you of your youth. A sweet and creamy mouthfeel with that unforgettable bittersweet bite of an orange, peel and all. This beer is far from subtle in flavor and is a very fun one to share with friends.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy brown color with average rocky tan head that lasted with good lacing. Aroma was moderate to heavy toasted malt with a vanilla sweet tone. Flavor was moderate toasted sweet with a good complex sweet finish of moderate duration. Medium body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Solid beer.

750 ml bottle shared by alexsdad06 - thanks again, Brad! Pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a tiny island of film. Notes of orange, cream, toasted sugar, toffee, and butterscotch, sweet and boozy enough to give it an orange liqueur-like character in addition to a sweet creamsicle. Light-medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and an intensely sweet mouthfeel. A bit much, but kinda fun in a small dose.

750 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have big sweet malts, lactose sugar, orange cream, some peel, very malty, I can see why people might not like it, but it is what they said it is, an orange Creamsicle beer.

A steady pour into my teku glass produces a two finger thick, pale amber tinged, tan colored head. The beer is a rich amber color that shows a clear, amber hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells brightly of citrus zest, but has a supporting vanilla note to the finish as well. It definitely smells like a creamsicle, though I can’t really smell much else.

Rich feeling and a bit viscous, the beer is sweet up front with lots of orange zest and vanilla to add to the effect. The finish has a touch of caramelized, nutty notes to it that add just a touch of balance to the up front sweetness. The creamsicle like orange character really lingers in the finish as well.

This definitely tastes like a creamsicle, but it tends to overwhelm the base beer, and it is really on the sweet side. I can understand wanting the sweetness, it is trying to taste like a creamsicle after all, but this also boosts the body quite a bit, and makes this more of a sipping beer; which is a far cry from a refreshing treat. In the end this beer executes the promise of the label quite well, but I find that I just don’t care for it all that much.

Bottle to glass. Pours a light brown orangish color with a creamy light tan head. Aroma was a definite orange creamsicle character that was even more pronounced in the flavor, with a touch of vanilla ice cream. Lingering creamy dreamsicle in the finish. A very unique and tasty brew.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5787) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2014
From the 11/2014 3R6P gathering. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a dark orange-brown color with a medium sized foamy orange-white head that faded and left minimal lacing. The aroma was dreamsicle and was fairly sweet. The flavor was tootsie roll, dreamsicle and sugar. Long finish. Medium body. Very weird and I found I liked it less with each sip.

Short-notice bottle share with Justin and Morgan at the Residence Inn fire pit. Cloudy orange body with orange-tinged tan head. Aroma is right on for what they were aiming to do - orange juice, vanilla, caramel malt, and some booze. Taste is similar, less sweet than the nose would indicate with a lactose edge, orange has a mildly unpleasant cough medicine character, a touch of orange peel bitterness in the end. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, medicinal finish.

Hoarders 2013 bottle shared with Paul. Copper/amber/orange body depending on the light. Small head. Sweet aromas of Popsicles, dessert, citrus, alcohol, cream soda, vanilla. Is it well executed? Yes, I suppose it is. Is it something I can drink 375 mL of? No thanks. I’m an adult (sort of) so I’m pretty much done with toddler flavors in my beer. Pass.

750ml bottle. Poured an amber color with an off white head. Yep, a creamsicle in a bottle with alcohol. Definitely unique.

They were going for orange creamsickle and achieved orange creamsickle. Golden ale, heavy cream and citrus aroma...same on the palate. Medium to full bodied, unique and delicious. Bruery pulls off stuff like this better than almost anyone
