3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Beer and Wine. Hazy light orange body with fast-receding, slight head. Nose is citrus, faint, and vanilla for sure. Taste is very subtle of hops, and floral at first then the vanilla kicks in proper into a chalky finish. Pretty good.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. It pours a near headless but foggy yellow color. Vanilla is potent in the aroma with an otherwise citrus and lemon-like hoppiness. Light body. The taste is too much vanilla for my liking. It would work better in a vanilla stout than in this one. Clean finish though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 12/24/2016. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with solid retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Good appearance. Aromas of vanilla, wheat, cracker, and biscuit; with lighter notes of lemon, apple, banana, clove, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of vanilla, bready malt, and light fruity/spicy yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of big vanilla, wheat, cracker, and biscuit; with lighter notes of lemon, apple, banana, clove, and yeast earthiness. Light bitterness/yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of vanilla, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light banana/clove, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of vanilla, bready malt, and light fruity/spicy yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/grainy mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.5%. Overall this is a very good pale wheat ale. All around good robustness and balance of vanilla, bready malt, and light fruity/spicy yeast flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This draft brew from a beer bar poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent weak yellow colored body and a fair lacing. The weak aroma was vanilla. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering spicy aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of wheat and spices. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with white head. Vanilla, sweet cereal, malted milk aromas. Vanilla, cream soda, marshmallow, cereal flavors. One of the better vanilla beers I’ve had lately.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aromas of buttered toast and some oxidization. Vanilla is also buttery and present throughout the palate of the beer. Drying but also coats the palate as the vanilla lingers.
