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.”

obguthr (5723) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Well skunked nose. Hazy golden, thin head. Grassy hay, Vanilla finish. Medium body, easy carbonation. I like Alpine, but I didn’t expect to like this.

Look is a hazy gold with little to no head. I’m kind of digging the vanilla aspect of this. The base beer, not so much.

Too much vanilla, not enough beer. Ends up tasting like cream soda, which is pleasant enough but not what I look for in a beer.

Patrickctenchi (6101) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 13, 2016
Bottle: (5.5%) Clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of grain....vanilla. Taste is lightly sweet...barley and wheat malts, vanilla. A little dry grassiness... Much like a rather pleasant cream ale.

nimbleprop (7560) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 10, 2016
32oz growler from Norm’s pours a very hazy gold with some cloudy, white head. Nose has plenty of vanilla and cream soda, light herbs, some light grass, mild biscuit, a little bubblegum. Flavor is lightly sweet with honey, cream soda and vanilla, herbs too. Simple in terms of the flavor, but crazy drinkable.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6846) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2016 Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a murky yellow color with a medium sized foamy white head that left minimal lacing. The aroma was yeast, phenol and a bit of vanilla. The flavor was malty with vanilla cream, yeast and a bit of phenol. Moderately long finish. Medium body. Meh.

wlajwl (5841) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 3, 2016
Aroma is vanilla and very grainy wheat. The flavor is wheat, vanilla, spices, light sweetness and a mix of slight sourness and graininess in the finish.

coreyc1221 (285) - Truckee, California, USA - SEP 30, 2016
No aroma at all. Haze golden color with thin white head. Artificial vanilla flavoring with light bright bubbly feel. It tastes fine but there’s nothing to see here. Move along.

ABUSEDGOAT (2607) - California, USA - SEP 23, 2016
Hazy golden orange, moderate to small head, some lace/retention. Aroma is spiced with orange, vanilla, pale malt, light citrus. Medium bodied, big vanilla flavor with vanilla sweetness.
