Notes/Commercial Description:
"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.

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.

Thanks, Abraham.

A moderately hazy dark amber with a dense, off-white head that falls off leaving little lacing, this looks decent, The nose smells like an orange creamsicle. Vanilla, orange, sugar syrup, vanilla sugar, graham cracker, toffee are all present. The palate is pretty sweet with vanilla, orange syrup, sugar syrup most noticeable up front. This is followed up with some vanilla graham cracker. Despite the sweetness, this does feel watery on the finish with a lingering semi-fake orange flavor present. Medium in body, moderately carbonated and rather intensely sweet, this is much better than I was expecting. While I'd much rather have a drier orange cream soda, this does manage to work. Solid for a gimmick beer.
