Pours a dirty blond color, slightly hazy. Head foams up and forms a crown around the glass. Lace sticks to the sides.
Aroma is slightly vegetal with spice notes reminiscent of a Belgian ale. Fresh bready notes also.
Flavor begins slightly bitter. Malts seem understated, and there is a sour twang that prevails throughout. There also seems to be some coriander or similar spice in the mix, which feels out of place.
Medium-bodied, but slightly puckering due to the level of hoppiness. I expected it to tilt a bit more toward the sweet and creamy side. Decent drinkability, nonetheless.
Overall, a good beer, but confuses my palate. It tastes like an Abbey Singel. I enjoyed it, but it seems to miss the mark as a cream ale.

Beautiful if unexpected beer. I have learned great respect for Six Point. This Sweet Action only reinforces that opinion.
Pours a bit hazy with a warm orangy- caramel tint, warm and full bodies looking. Head sticks around for a bit, once that gets sipped away there's a sticky laciness that stays on the walls of the glass. From the tap into a standard pint glass.
Even minutes after the pour there's a nice tingle from the carbonation on the tongue.
Flavor is hoppy without being hopped up, very little malt and no cloying aftertaste or coating.
Without knowing any better, I'd call this a pale ale, but I'm learning more every day.
Long after the sip, there's a tiny explosion of orange on the sides and back of the tongue.
Even 2/3rds of the way through the pint, I'm not sure that I can find anything that would remind me of a cream ale.
I will be back for another!!
