Beer Review: MadTree Brewing Dreamsicle

MadTree Brewing, another one of my great local Cincinnati breweries had recently released their Dreamsicle in cans for the first time a couple of months ago, and I happened to pick up one to actually give it a swirl. Now the funny thing about this beer is that it hadn’t been planned to do so previously, but credit an April fool’s joke gone wrong as to how this came to be.

Dreamsicle was first introduced in 2014 and in previous years it was only served on tap. However, this past April a joke was made saying it was going to cans. However this was not the case, but the mention and strength of the crowd uproar was so strong that MadTree was pretty much pushed into canning it. And today, here we are with another addition to the canning line. This being said, never underestimate the power of the customers and the will of the people. Okay, so what about the beer.

Dreamsicle is a Kolsch that is highlighted in its flavor by tones of vanilla and orange, and reminiscent of those ice cream desserts that we remember as children. It has a light alcohol content of 4.7% ABV and a low smoothed out IBU of 11. I have had this previously on tap and I am just hoping the can keeps it just as delightful. Well, all this being said it’s time to see what this ale has to offer. So, you know what to do.
