COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Since “Willy” is so versatile and can be flavored with fruits and essences, we add a touch of vanilla extract to compliment the sweet nuttiness. Also good mixed with Captain Stout, a blend we call “The Captain and Vanil.”

the name is creepy .. . gold .. mild foam .. . gettting a lot of vanilla of course, a touch slick .. . not bad but just a bit out there .. . . its awkward touching hands with another man in a popcorn bag, especially if you dont know the man & he doesnt know youre eating his popcorn

mcberko (7831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013
On tap at Alpine, pours clear pale golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of vanilla, and subtler lemony notes. Flavour is similar, with loads of vanilla atop lemony and citrusy notes. Pretty refreshing - the vanilla adds a nice element to the base beer. Solid stuff.

Dogbrick (8907) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Sample at the brewpub. Cloudy yellow pour with a thin white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Vanilla and malt in the nose. Light body with flavors of sweet vanilla, malt and wheat. The finish is sweet vanilla cream soda aftertaste. Decent overall.

Ferris (6340) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2013
Draft - Vanilla and wheat. Pale clear yellow with a thin head. Huge vanilla and a wheat finish. Although they warn you this is soda like, it is hard to believe. Light, refreshing and fun but not beer. I would still drink it anyways.

Pours straw like color with thin off white head. Aroma that is very reminiscent of creme soda. Tastes much of the same plus mild bread and yeast.
