3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from hellbilly. Thanks man! The aroma is an interesting mix of soft white chocolate, almonds, and dusty yeast. Hazy light orange yellow pour with a big fizzy head that settles to a ring. Flavors of white chocolate, vanilla, and dusty yeast. Super interesting. Very lively carbonation on top of a thin body give it a little soda effect, but not in a bad extract syrup fruit or flavored beer kind of way.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(22oz bottle thanks to jkwalking05) clear pale yellow with nice thick ring of bubbles. Nose of white chocolate and butterscotch. Taste of white chocolate, kaopectate (a chalky, gritty diarrhea medicine for those who don’t remember), milk of magnesia, medicinal with lightly carbonated body. What a weird beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at the "Colin and the Vikings tasting, Goteborg". Poured a hazy straw coour with a thin white head. The aroma is neutral veggie. The flavour is neutral veggie herb with a watery neutral palate. Chocolate?? White, dark? Nothing at all really and no flavour.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy cocoa powder and light vanilla...maybe a touch of grass. It?s a transparent dull gold with a small white head that eventually fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is some spotty lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of wheat. The finish has light-moderate sweet cocoa powder and vanilla. It?s light bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, it?s probably a good thing I got a 4oz sample. I like chocolate, but straight cocoa powder generally wears on me quickly.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
1 L bottle, via FlacoAlto. Poured a slightly hazy gold body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is really quite uncanny in it’s similarity to a real bar of white chocolate. There’s a bit of yeastiness and a pale maltiness. The flavor up front is more like a Golden Ale than anything, slight maltiness and a light hoppiness. The late finish really brings out the chocolate flavor though. The quality of the chocolate was similar to those Dove candy bars, where there’s that little bit of extra milky creaminess. Light bodied with light fizzy carbonation. Overall, a pretty interesting experiment if nothing else!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle. Pale golden tan color. Bubbly, effervescent head which fades into a creamy, oily, thin layer. Really unique, and quite refreshing, I can dig it. While most dessert beers tend to be sugary and cloying, this remains quite smooth and drinkable. Solid white chocolate tones, no mistaking it. A mild, almost lemony herbal twang evens it out, suppose the wheat and hops. Quite a cool concoction, one that captures big time flavor with sessionability. A little thin-bodied at times, but I think that’s also what makes it work.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
1 liter swing top bottle shared with pineypower, thanks Dean. Ok I sampled this before at BCTC 2008 and swore it must have been a different beer because I got zero white choclate in the aroma and flavor. Well this sample showed me that it was in fact the same beer but at least this time I was able to smell/taste some white chocolate. The base beer beer on this was a very odd choice, a light golden ale with a slight sour backbone. This lead to aromas and flavors of white chocolate, lemons, and sourness. Combinbing chocolate and peanut butter = awesomeness, combinbing white chocolate and sour = fail.
