Willy, named after my brother-in-law’s childhood nickname, is crisp and light-bodied, with a slightly sweet, nutty flavor. The hopping is mild and gentle. It’s perfect for times when you crave a beer utterly refreshing and low in alcohol. A true thirst quencher everyone enjoys. 1.047 OG 4 IBU 4.9%ABV

Disclaimer - I doubt this will ever be I style I could love, even though this brewery makes some of the world’s most wonderful beers. Got this in a trade with hamilton23 (thank you!). 22 oz bottle into a wizen glass. This beer poured a light yellow with a tiny white head which disappeared almost immediately. There was almost no lacing to speak of. The nose was wheat, yeast, and some lemon zest but very faint. Taste was similar, i.e. wheat, yeast and a tiny lemon tinge. There was little carbonation and the mouthfeel was very light. While not displeasing, this is the most forgettable beer from a great brewery. I have had 9 Alpine beers and this is the ONLY one I would pass on, if offered.

Pretty boring with creamy wheat finish at the end. Subtle hop flavors but nothing much.

Draught @ the brewpub, Alpine. Aroma is rather mild with some fruits. Flavour has minerals, mild fruitiness and peaches. Watery. And odd.

glad i never sprung for this when some norcal shops had it at a premium. Average beer, yellow, crisp and pleasant enough but a little boring.
