1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle received as extra in trade. Thank you Daknole! Labeled white Chocolate Ale. Pours tiny hazy golden with a small frothy white head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is, well, strange with unfermented grains, low quality white chocolate, cereal, lemon zest, soil, hay and milk duds. Taste is tiny sweet, tiny bitter and tiny sour with grains, crackers, cereal, lemon juice, vanilla beans, hay, dry soil and possibly hints of white chocolate if you really try hard to find it. Mouthfeel is crisp, phenolic astringent and light bodied. Finish is bitter and tiny sour with grains, cereal, hay, dry soil and lemon zest. Not my cup of tea at all. Hopefully i’ll get the chance to see what Arizona really has to offer at some point.

Bottle at Colin And The Vikings in Nol 2014-03-22. Thanks to Alex. Clear pale golden beer with a small offwhite head. Slightly roasted aroma, herbal, caramel, fruity notes. Sourish flavor, really strange and hard to define. No sign of chocolate.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head on it. Nose has a lot of cocoa in it, with some hints of light cream underneath. Tastes like cocoa in beer, and while I like the parts, the whole isn’t working for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Draft at O.H.S.O., 3/8/14, as White Chocolate
Aroma: The nose is sweet and malty, white chocolate is very present here
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden color with a pretty decent sized white head on it
Flavor: The taste is sweet and chocolaty, without enough balance to it
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a soft carbonation, and a smooth, creamy finish
I thought this was a nice beer, but it was too sweet for me. Well-made though. No complaints, I’m just not the target market.

A hazed blonde ale with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity chocolate malt with light vanilla notes, not bad. In mouth, a smooth fruity chocolate malt with light vanilla, oily mouth feel, OK.

Slightly hazy golden pour with small white head. Aroma of wheat, vanilla and white chocolate. Taste of white chocolate, wheat, vanilla and very faint citrus. Medium carbonation, medium bodied. I love white chocolate so I really enjoyed this unique beer.

Thanks to erzengel for sharing! Pours a hazy dull orange/yellow with a small tan head. The smell is just like circus peanuts, some white chocolate, biscuits. The taste is liquified circus peanuts, graham crackers, some fruit ending a bit dry. light/medium in body.

Many thanks to StefanSD for this great beer!
Rated as "White Chocolate Ale", 22 fl.oz. (651ml), BB 04.09.2014
The beer is orange-golden in the glass, great nose of chocolate and toffee / nougat. The beer starts as the nose promises, but not so sweet. Great aroma of chocolate and nougat together with a smooth, not too sweet and not too bitter wheat beer. The aftertaste is smooth, great combination of nougat and chocolate together with wheat ale hints and a moderate bitterness.
Very great brew! I like this combination. --> 12/12/11/12
