4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2008 This brew is a masterpiece. Pours with a pale almost creamy yellow color throwing off a shortlived spritzy froth. Minimal lacing with beachball sized spattering. Beautiful aromas of fresh cocoa and a bit of coffee essence. Smells like brownies. Light to medium nectar with lively carbonation that turns to CREAM on the palate. Nice! This brew is not sweet at all with huge flavors of brownies and coffee although on the lean side. The finish is bittered mildly and is dry with lingering chocolate biscuit essence. I would agree with the commercial deScription. Well done!

bottle on RBSG’10 bus - hazy yellow, some cocoa buter. strange sour (almost like a lacto infection?). strange carbonation mouthfeel.

Unclear pale yellow with a quickly dissipating bubbly head. Eyes deceive the nose. Does not smell like it looks. Theres some grain and ’pale lager’ aroma beneath apparent chocolate. Chocolate milk. Vanilla. Flavor follows, which is unexpected. Too crisp and too much prickly carbonation. Bigger light body. Even if its all on purpose, this is an odd confusing experience.

Thanks Dakine! Pale cloudy yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is a "chemical" white chocolate. Taste is wheat beer with a medicine flavoring. dry. Nice lacing.

Bottle, thanks to some mystery person on the RBSG bus.Nose is lemon, spice, chalk, pineapple, white pepper. Flavours of white peppper, chocolate, vanilla, lemons. Tight and spicy, almost slightly medicinal. Different, I’ll give it that.

Thanks ratebeef! Clear golden pour with a small bubbly white head that fades fast. Nose is vanilla beans, chocolate chips and cake batter. Fuck yeah it's my birthday. Flavor is very similar but not as bright as the aroma and sort of a thin palate. Can definitely pick out the pale malts in this beer. Pretty interesting though and glad to have tried it.

hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is sour citrus and chocolate. Flavor is skunky, more citrus, a touch of chocolate, and a bit of pickle brine. Mehhhhh

Surprisingly pretty good. Very well pronounced white chocolate taste, which somehow actually works with the beer. More of a novelty than anything else, but I would rate it higher than Rogue’s "donut beers." Again, though, I think Sonoran missed its opportunity by not making this a stout.

A: Pours a nice pale yellow hue tall fizzy head. Little retention and lace.
S: White chocolate for sure. Real not extract either. Light wheat notes round things out.
T: White chocolate extract, light vanilla, wheaty grain, and citrus, and a hint of tartness.
M: Light fizzy hefe like.
D: It’s kind of all over the place. I like the vanilla, wheat, and extract. The citrus takes it into left field.
