As advertised, Lenola Cream with one small tweak: less banana/ more strawberry. Other than that it's the same "pies, fruit medley tastes, and creaminess for miles". I.m.o. it's just as good as the original and so similar that it's completely redundant.
I do love the uniqueness of Lenola Cream. And when I heard they did it with strawberry...My goodness how could someone pass that up?? Oh, I did. Darn. Luckily I have an amazing friend whol sent me some and I am extremely grateful to them.
If you like LC, and if you like strawberry then this is a match made in heaven. The inhale is that amazing Lenola Cream base...No banana. It was hard reviewing LC because there are so many layers of flavors that I find it hard to pinpoint any singular one. I do get a nice pie crust, the cream is amazing and some other nuances that just make this an amazing piece of art...So to speak. The exhale brings a nice, ripe strawberry to the party and it rocks it. Brings it to a whole new level. It's not sickeningly sweet, like some can be. It's a good amount of deliciousness.
I do like this better than the original, but I lean more towards strawberries anyway.

Unlike most, I was actually disappointed with the hype surrounding Lenola Cream. What was so special about it? It's kind of fruity, nutty, sweet - sort of a banana, or maybe not. I didn't know.
I didn't know.
I left the bottle to steep because I was simply disappointed. Maybe the fabled playfulness and complexity of it would shine after some time, I thought. And it did. Two weeks is all it took and this has become one of my favorite flavors ever. It's fruity, not overly sweet, nutty, among other flavors. Just lovely.

So just to start out the bottle I have of this is pretty well aged, so my review is only going from that, I'm not sure what this tastes like fresh.
As others have mentioned, this is a very unique flavor. I've never had Kuri Kinton nor have I ever even heard of it. Apparently it uses a certain kind of Japanese sweet potato that is sweeter than what I'm used to. I'm not a fan of sweet potato, but KiC typically does quality work so I was certainly intrigued by this.
I will say I appreciate new and unique flavors, I can't say I've seen anyone else even attempt a flavor like this before. Does it succeed? I certainly think so. I was surprised that I wasn't really getting the starchy sweet potato as others have mentioned, at least not like I was expecting. There certainly is a slight starchiness there, but in a blind taste test I'd be curious who would guess it was a sweet potato.
The berry syrup and candied chestnuts come next and blend together very well, and wrap the profile up nicely. I'm honestly not sure what the berry would be, to me it's not a blackberry, maybe a strawberry/blueberry mix? Dash of cherry? Everything in this mixes so well it's hard to pick out, but it does provide an overall enjoyable experience. The candied chestnuts are not overpowering, you certainly don't walk away describing this as a nutty juice overall. It's there, but when you consider extra-sweet sweet potatoes, berry syrup, and candied chestnuts, you do mostly get a sweet / dessert style vibe more than anything. It certainly isn't too sweet by any means, very enjoyable.
My biggest critique here is the mouth-feel, it definitely has a lighter mouth feel and I prefer a thicker. It doesn't have a lot of body to it, it vapes kind of thin for my tastes. It vapes extremely smooth yet is slightly dry on the exhale, but not bad. I didn't detect any throat hit.
So for me personally I'm not sure I'd re-order this one, though I still respect what they are doing here. I don't think anyone would be displeased with this juice, and if you like lighter flavors this one would definitely fit the bill. I'd give the intensity about a 4 or 5 out of 10. It's got decent flavor, but I think just a bump in overall intensity would make this one pop a lot more.
It's mixed well, and is very unique and I appreciated the experience of trying something different.

I have been wanting to review this flavor for a while, but am having a hard time adding to what has already been said by the other reviewers. This is such a different, delicious and surprising juice. I ordered it not knowing quite what to expect other than the quality I know and love from Kite and Cloud. It's also my first venture into tea flavors. On the inhale I get a wonderful, dark berries and black tea taste which quickly turns into this creamy, sweet concoction that would have to be the cream and tempura batter. I'm also getting a bit of a savory vibe while vaping this which is probably the tea. Now I should add that I'm a bit of a tea snob. I love tea, and drink it all day and this is a very good black tea rendition. It's all blended really well and the flavors are spot on. Like I said, I knew the juice would be good as Kite in Cloud does not make bad juice. What I didn't know or expect was that this flavor would become something I enjoy vaping all day without getting tired of. I've already ordered a larger bottle and is right up there with my beloved Lenola Cream and seriously, what an awesome name! How did they come up with Yellow Noise Maker?

I love Kite in Cloud. Bobby and Ann are so fantastic. They take the time to package your juice carefully, will work with you in a heartbeat if there's a problem, and respond to questions super quickly. My favorite thing about Kite in Cloud is the note that comes on your packing slip. There is always, and I mean always, a nice heartfelt note smooshed on the packing slip. It makes you feel.. KNOW.. they genuinely care. This is one of the best companies around.
When I placed my most recent order with Kite In Cloud, I added a note that I referred a good friend of mine. I thanked them for making such great juice (it really is one of my favorites) and forgot about it for a while. When I got my order, I opened the box to find the owners also sent along a multi-paragraph letter expressing their gratitude. It was not printed out, but written by hand. I was flabbergasted. I know they are busy, because Lenola Cream is a very popular juice. You can't go a day without seeing them mentioned on Reddit.
The Kite In Cloud owners such sweet people, and it doesn't surprise me in the slightest that their genuinely good spirit has won them rave reviews in the JuiceDB community.
And the kicker? Their juice is delicious! As of July 2015, they still only sell one style of juice! I don't know if I can recommend KIC enough. They're good people who make excellent juice, and I'd like to keep supporting them.
Obviously taste, smell, etc. is subjective and everyone has different preferences. That being said... Lenola Cream from Kite in Cloud is the only e-liquid that I've been able to vape consistently. It's been 4 months and I haven't turned back. Everyone who smells it says "That smells really good" and I say "Yeah! No shit buddy".
The people at Kite in Cloud (KiC) are super nice and helped me out when I asked them advice in the "Comments" section when placing an order. If you haven't already tried their e-juice, then you are living under a f&%#@ing rock. Come out of your rock and join us here... in the future. where it smells kinda like banana's but tastes like the Awesome sauce!!
