3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by emacgee - thanks, Ethan! Surprisingly light pour for a beer with these kinds of flavors going on. It’s no lie: there’s a bunch of white chocolate in the nose, along with some nice cherry almond, like a good Italian cookie or something. The body is very thin, alas, but hard to resist the flavors, making it sad that they wash out a bit in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on tap at 1702, Tucson AZ
Arrives from the tap with a lightly hazy, light gold color and is topped by a thin pale head. The nose mostly has beer-like notes to it with a light, sweet, white-chocolate note to it that provides more a perceived sweetness in the aroma than anything.
The taste is much like a clean, simple blond beer with white chocolate added. Very light hop character and a light malt character make this simplistic and quaffable. It has quite a light mouthfeel, though I wouldn’t say it was watery. The white-chocolate adds a sort of perfume-like note as well as a touch of vanilla notes. Not bad, but not really my cup of tea, this might have been really interesting if the base beer was more interesting (I am imagining a thick, white chocolate infused stout).

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.

Bottle shared by pepsican. Poured a slightly hazy light orange color. Interesting aroma of subdued chocolate and funk. Light bodied with mild acidity and moderate carbonation. Strange melange of flavors including wet stone, chocolate, cream, and butter. Not my bag.

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

Draft at Whole Foods Chandler. Pours golden with half an inch of white foam. Smells a bit like a tootsie roll on the nose. This beer tastes just like white chocolate without being cloying or lingering to long on the palate. Really a well-crafted beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to daknole. Pours a clear light orange with a small white head. Aroma of chocolate, pale malts, floral hops. Flavor is sweet initially with some chocolate in the finish. Definite herbal/spice presence and plenty of citrus. Not exactly what I expected...this was just alright for me -- rather sweet and not enough chocolate. Overall, it was an odd beer.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle provided by Jale at Jackie O’s. Thanks for the Arizona tick and a unique beer. This beer just sounds terrible and if not for the Arizona tick I wouldn’t have tried it. However, this is an amazing surprise...Gusher warning. Pops with lots of thin foamy white head, light off white poor lacing. A lightly clear gold, not much to look at...The aroma is terrible, skunky, fake, as generic as it sounds. No hope for this at all...The taste is amazing. Its not amazing great or highly drinkable but it tastes EXACTLY like white chocolate. This is a very skillfully crafted beer. Its dominated by white chocolate, nothing else comes through, but luckily its not so sweet you can’t drink.
If you like white chocolate and sweeter beers by all means give this a shot. Not close to being a great beer, but worth trying.
