Beer added by: CheapBeerBuzz on 12-10-2013

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

"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 popcicle. 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 unforgetable 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.

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.

A - poured a one finger thick creamy tan head into a snifter. The body was a dark purple-brown color.
S - bready, orange, vanilla.
T - bready, orange, raisins, vanilla. Finishes with a hint of spice.
M - creamy and slick.
O - interesting take and I liked it. The aroma is excellent.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Cigar City pint glass.

A: Quite hazy dark copper to brown, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly. Low visible carbonation.

S: Mandarin oranges - mildly artificial in character - a cream soda sweetness, vanilla, and lightly toasted malts.

T: Reminds me of orange flavored cream soda - oranges, vanilla cream ale, moderately sweet, lactose creaminess, some bready malt backbone, and a creamed rice sweetness. Light creamy sweetness in the hang.

M: Sticky mouthfeel, a heavier body than expected. Carbonation on the low side, and the alcohol is well-hidden.

O: Pretty well-executed on the whole, and something I'd tell you if you think it sounds good, you'll like it. Not my favorite beer, perhaps, but it's exactly what the brewers said it would be. Maybe use it more as a dessert beer, and one to share with a few people.

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.
