Hazy yellow with a foamy white head. The aroma was potent vanilla and a hint of spice. Lightly carbonated and medium bodied. The flavor was heavy vanilla with touches of spice. Pleasant drink and refreshing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at the Peoria Int'l Beer Festival. Cloudy yellow with a massive, soft & pillowy head. Spicy vanilla bean aroma. Vanilla dominates the flavor, which is extremely close to Creme Soda qualities. Luckily, the carbonation is low, otherwise this would be TOO close to Creme Soda for my liking. Buttery on the palate. Finishes mildly bitter. Very tasty.
