Draft at the brewery taproom. Pours clear orange-amber with a creamy white head. Big and juicy, true creamsicle aroma. Medium sweet flavor with lots of orange cream, light bitter citrus rind. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish with continuing genuine orange creamsicle flavor, light bitter citrus rind. Rich and straight creamsicle. Impressive and fun. hopscotch (11051) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2015
Bottle... Hazy caramel-colored pour with glimmers of burnt-orange and a beige head. The aroma offers loads of vanilla accompanied by both the peel and the flesh of tangerines and oranges. A little medicinal, otherwise it smells exactly like a Creamcicle. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and laid-back carbonation. The flavor is very reminiscent of a Creamcicle. Bittersweet, but trending much moreso toward the sweet side of balance. Bittersweet vanilla crème and orange rind. Restrained notes of milk chocolate and caramel in both the nose and flavor. Mildly bitter, fruity-sweet and lightly medicinal in the aftertaste. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler! Tmoney99 (14381) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2015

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. alexsdad06 (10289) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2015
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 (7697) - 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.
