7venth Sun Brewery's Graffiti Orange Creamsicle
$6 for a small snifter on tap at The Brass Tap, Oldsmar, Florida

Appearance: Typical wheat beer appearance. Hazy orange/yellow body, bright white head, average head retention and spotty lacing.

Smell: Malty with orange and wheat notes. An occasional hint of vanilla.

Taste: The flavor follows the aroma. I get the creamsicle connection. Some citrusy hops. Not sweet as might be expected. Nicely balanced.

Mouthfeel: Light/medium in body with a delicately bristling, fine-bubbled carbonation.

Overall: An interesting beer. Easily accessible. A bit pricey. Probably worth trying just to see what it's all about, but it won't bowl you over.

Growler courtesy of drabmuh. Served in a 7venth Sun tulip.

Pours a clear golden color with a nice white head and some spotty lacing on the way down. The nose has some citrus and light grainy sweetness. Flavor has a good dose of malt and general grainy crispness. Some orange and citrus there. Light body with crisp carbonation. Some grain tannins here. Nice and session able, but not something that I would specifically seek out again.

First had: at 7venth Sun, Dunedin, FL

Yeah, with a name like this, the ladies are going to be all over this one. But really, it's just an orange wheat beer. The "creamsicle" part is just a gimmick, it would seem. Slightly hazy yellowish pour, with a foamy white head that retained as a thin layer and left a bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted wheat, citrus zest. Taste was similar, grainy, toasted bread, orange zest, pithy bitterness, slightly herbal hop element in the finish. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation. Nothing I'd need more than a taster of.

Enjoyed this beer on tap at 7venth Sun Brewery in Dunedin.

A: Pours a yellow - golden hue with a 2-finger white head that quickly dissipates leaving a nice trail and ending in a wispy lace.

S: Orange and citrus aroma.

T: Orange creamsicle is pretty much dead on. Slightly sweet and grainy with a faint hop flavor.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: This was a really good brew – easy sipper.

On-tap at 7venth Sun.

A - Pours orange/yellow, white head, spotty lace, thin collar.

S - A nice level of orange peel and wheat/hay notes. Very refreshing and subtle while still showing complexity.

T - Orange peel, light hay/grass, wheat, light cracker malts. Again, very refreshing and super-enjoyable during the 80 degree weather outside in the sun. Finish is light citrus and hay.

M - Light body, good carbonation, clean finish.

O - An excellent beer that goes down even more smoothly then 6.3%. Had two pours of this stuff and was really enjoying it during the wonderful weather outside on the patio of the brewery. Would have again for sure!

The added lactose yields one of the best finishes I've had in a beer. Very smooth and easy to drink. Citrus balances the creaminess nicely.

Growler poured into a 7venth Sun tulip, because I plan ahead.

Beer is blonde / yellow with a mild haze, big white head, a little retention, some lacing, looks nice.

Aroma is a little sweet, a little cream ale like, a little citrusy.

Beer is orange tasting with a sweetness to it and a nice finish, light in body a good session sipping beer.

Arrives a weak, cloudy yellow with a hint of white head, really just a thin ring. No lace at all, heck, no head.
Smell is malt, tortilla chips and yeast. Due to the name, I had expected an orange note but none was forthcoming. Balance is fine.
Taste is the same as the nose, malt, tortilla chips and yeast. No orange to be gad here either and no creaminess either. Balance is good, though.
Medium bodied, with a tangy effervescence on the tip of the tongue mostly. The blend of malt and corn chip flavors makes me think of tortillas floating in the vat. Not a bad beer but it doesn't provide the "orange creamsicle" I was expecting, really the only knock on the beer.

Growler shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt.

The beer is clear and appears a golden yellow color with a small white head. The aroma does indeed offer orange creamsicles. Additional notes of hops, with a subtle citrus quality. Orange creamsicles take center stage. Light bodied and easy to drink, with an underlying sweetness. Good stuff and certainly worth a try.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with white head. Funk, citrus orange, raw wheat, and some tart notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with sweetness, not what I expected.

Appearance: A cheerful soft yellow-hued body, a bit cloudy, with a smallish but sustained white head.

Smell: Orangey aroma atop the soft cereal-scented wheat with an additional flourish of lemon zest as well as a hint of the vanilla.

Taste: Moderately sweet, the creamy orange dreamsicle qualities are apparent. Light wheat malt. Honeyed candyish tone. Soft lemon as well as the pop of orange peelings. Minimal hop character and imparted bitterness. Maintains the dreamsicle element through to the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: A beer that's light, drinkable, but also good old-fashioned fun.
