Pale yellow cloudy pour. The nose is lightly tart with a soft bit of pale malt sweetness through the middle. Softly sweet up front with an almost wheaty tartness. Oddly, the white chocolate aroma really does come out. Strange but not awful.

Bottle shared by Jim, thanks! Poured a hazy pale gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a slight light fruit and citrus note with a sweet chocolate and grain note backing. Flavor had a slight sweet grain note with growing light chocolate and a hint of light fruit coming out in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Thanks to Daknole for the hookup. Pours a hazy yellow with a foamy head. Flavor is initially sweet and slightly malty, followed by a strong astringent citrus note. Kind of reminds me of those hard candys with the fizzy baking soda stuff in the middle. Interesting beer, lots of things going on here.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served from a bottle that a nice person drop off for Mike at the OTM Tasting bar. The appearance is a creamy looking frosted yellow with s fluffy white head. The aromas quickly show the white chocolate from the mane, loads of it with an almost bready backing. The flavors follow with a rich white chocolate, a touch of bread. The white chocolate comes through nice in the beer, very creamy and smooth. A nice little treat. I think the base beer would of been better suited taste wise with a darker beer but that might over power the lightness of white chocolate. A nice treat, thanks Mike.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(22oz bottle thanks to jkwalking05). Pours a hazy light gold with white fizzy head. Aroma has what I can best describe as white chocolate. Flavor has light chocolate as well. Mouth feel is light body with high carbonation. Overall, a very interesting brew, I would love to try again for a better perspective.

Great chocolate aroma. Flavor was more sour than I expected -- almost French Saison style. Good head retention. I liked this beer for it’s flavor but was disappointed in its lack of chocolate flavor as advertised. I would drink this again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle.
Clear yellow with a thick fluffy white head, great retention, sticky lace.
Aroma is chocolate, chocolate, chocoate. A little bit of dough hanging out underneath gives it that just-out-of-the-oven cookie feel. A slight touch of yeast appears with agitation.
Flavor is vanilla ice cream with Hershey kiss white chocolate sprinkled on top, but there is an underlying wheaty character that gives it some drieness and balances it out.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(22 oz bottle). Pours hazy yellow with white head. Aroma is of chocolate!. Taste is sweet with some hopiness. Finish is bitter with some yeastiness. Interesting brew, but I can only drink a few sips. Chocolate flavor is well done and intense.
