Willy Vanilly’s cutesy name kinda bugs me, but I can’t complain about anything else. Pale color and fluffy head. Its smells are woodsy and sweet - definitely more like vanilla extract than spicy, raw vanilla. Flavor definitely is catered toward a sweet tooth. Wheat malt and lots of vanilla. Soft, light body. Not much by way of surprises here, but this certainly satisfies a niche.

A- Mold, pond water, subtle vanilla.
A- Golden color, hazy liquid, white head.
T- Vanilla, slightly nutty, wheat.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, bland finish.
O- I wanted this because I’ve had luck with some really tasty vanilla wheat beers and this being from Alpine I figured it had to be great. I was wrong. This smelled awful. A weird earthy unnatural smell. The taste was okay. Some vanilla but not much flavor going on. This really needs some work.

Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is vanilla,caramel and toast. Taste is sweet with a light hop bite. Light bodied, dry finish and very reminiscent of a cream with taste and body.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2016 Draft at the Irish Pol. Hazy blunt yellow gold pour with slight off-white foam. No lasting lace. A mild soapy lemon vanilla white IPA. Lemon verbena. White peaches. Bamboo shoots. Artificial buttered biscuits. Somewhat blunt palate. Chalky lemongrass. Different enough but not great.

Tap, clearish golden with average head. Smell and flavor are fake vanilla extract, butter, and malt. Really weird and not worth my time. Tastes like a more gross southern tier black water beer.

4 oz pour on draft at Spacebar. Mostly clear pale yellow with off-white head. Aromas of citrus, malt, light vanilla. Tastes of vanilla, wheat, light citrus, malt. Light body with a dry finish. Vanilla wheat ale, why?

Not amazing, not bad, just ok with assume vanilla flavor. Light aroma with a powder sugar donut scent, a little lemon. Light to medium color with slight haze. Taste is a little bready, slight sugar vanilla, but very mediocre. Mouth is thick and sugary at end. Up front it’s even and refreshing, but quickly gets syrupy. Tap
