3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A decent offering, well worth the money and i’d possibly get it again. I actually really liked it, tasted like a alcoholic frosted mini wheats. great beer to use for blending, good straight up, lots of wheat and tons of vanilla and rock sugar.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery after a grueling day of cycling the Laguna Mtn’s. Light golden in color with a white head. Vanilla on the nose with some sweetness. Light body. Wheat, fruity and kinda refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a clear golden color with a fluffy white head.
S: The nose is sweet and has a strong vanilla presence. I still am able to pick up some of the wheat as well, which I was a bit surprised by.
T: While the vanilla flavor is pronounced, it is not overwhelming (like I feared it might be). The beer is definitely sweet, but not cloying. As with the nose, I was amazed by how much "beer" flavor was still there. It was almost reminiscent of a Nilla Wafer cookie.
M: The body is medium with a bit of crispness and a moderate level of carbonation.
D: I was expecting this to be just bad, but it was actually quite a nice balance of malt and sweet vanilla flavors. I don’t think I’d suck down a growler, but a glass was nice.

1.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
The only good thing this beer has going for it is a clever name, which is why I bothered to try it. Pours a weak yellow with a nice vanilla nutmeg aroma (okay, TWO things). Flavor is an awful, plastic vanilla that sits like water on the tongue. Y. U. C. K.

This was an interesting little brew, I had to come back and have a couple samples of this one, cause I could not really put my finger on what was so appealing about it. Spicy wheat nose, with some faint vanilla extract. Matly, and not overly sweet in my opinion like some have said. I thought this had a really nice texture and finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From growler. A hazy golden beer with a beige head. The aroma has strong notes of wheat combined with notes of vanilla. The flavor has strong notes of wheat and medium notes of barley malt, and vanilla, leading to a dry wheaty finish where the vanilla note lingers.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampler at the brewery.
Pours hazy golden, thin white head.
Aroma of wheat and vanilla.
Taste, sweet vanilla, light hops, overly smooth with excellent touch of the vanilla. Beer keeps a grainy palate and keep a wheat profile
Simple, easy to drink, and overly tasty. I want more..

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I picked up a growler while passing through Alpine to visit relatives. Appears a very bright straw color with nice clarity. Nose is very pleasant with the vanilla filling nicely in the background. The taste is very smooth, the wheat presence is light and perfect and the vanilla is not over done and peaks very well towards the end. I drank this entire growler and I wanted to turn around and grab two or three more on my way back. Awesome brew Pat, keep ’em coming~

Sampled at RBSG. I was quite suprised by this one. I have had many chances to get it, but never did. Finally decided to go for it at RBSG. Lots of vanilla on the aromas. Sweet malty flavors with more vanilla on the end. I liked it.
