Can (dated 6/13/18) to tulip glass.

LOOK: Bright Orange, Hazy, Small white head.
AROMA: Orange and vanilla, yeah, it's pretty much a creamsicle.
TASTE: taste brings in some other flavors besides the orange/vanilla/lactose. Lemon rind, ash, vegetable. Finish has some rye character to it. Tasty and interesting.
FEEL: Medium body, light carbonation.


Not bad, but I feel like the beer drains you as you go. The strong orange and lactose are appealing at first, but get old pretty fast. I've been lowering the numbers as I've been detailing the tasting notes.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar consisting of moderate sized bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of vanilla are present along with hints of orange citrus.
T: The taste follows the smell and has lots of vanilla flavors along with notes of orange peels.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied, very creamy and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer smells and tastes just like an orange creamsicle. I particularly like the vanilla and creamy mouthfeel.

Serving type: can

Creamscicle pours a hazy and cloudy orange color with not much head. Mellow sweet aromas hints of orange and vanilla.. Flavor is mellow creamscicle, vanilla and orange, with a mellow hop flavor near the end. Good body and feel. Overall, pretty good, sweet and bitterness don't mix well.

Can. Had this and their Key Lime Pie beer. Didn’t enjoy this one as much. Hazy orange with floating sediment. Strong nose. The creamsicle flavor was definitely there. I don’t think I love how it was presented in the beer though. A little to abrasive.
