UPDATED: MAY 26, 2008 Sampled at the Arizona Craft Brewers Guild 2008 Strong Beer Fest, on February 17, at the Mesa Amphitheatre. Pours a very light pale gold, with a giant creamy long lasting white head. Light aromas of chocolate and vanilla. Flavor is similar. Very nice and refreshing.

I’m sorry, but I just had to try this. on tap at 1702. A pale straw color with no real head. Aroma is lacking, but that is because it is all in the flavor. I really don’t get any malt, just white chocolate. that is fine. it is really good. I kind of like weird beers and this is weird. but good, nice thinking out of the box from an AZ brewer.

10 karat gold with only a white ring for a head and little carbonation. Man, did that head hang on for dear life...never leaving the beer completely. The nose: undoubtedly the best feature of this one. Pure vanilla extract, buttermilk biscuit, and obvious white chocolate. A more lively beer might have awoke the taste buds. Unique and interesting.

nice golden yellow. a bit on the sweet and sour side, slightly citrusy; an interesting beer

White chocolate in a hefeweizen, experienced at The Yard House, Scottsdale as not on at the Pinnacle showcase restauraunt for Sonoran. Better than described. I liked the white chocolate flavour, it came through. Why in a hefe? I don’t know, but places about town were putting various flavours in their hefe, Phoenix’s idea of extreme beer. The aroma of the sweet white chocolate. Not super drinkable, a sipper. Some lace. Looks like a hefe.

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.

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.

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.

Hazy gold beer. Not much head. Starts with a sharp fruity tang - orange with a splash of lemon. The mid has a sweet pineapple note which carries on to the dry finish. The white chocolate comes to the fore in the finish. Slighty strange, definitely unique and very drinkable. Kudos also for the fantastic big blue bottle -a keeper! Now - how about a White Chocolate Barleywine?

puch in phx; this is one unique beer. bottle stated white chocolate ale. about the most accurate/unique aroma ever - it was white chocolate!! not sure how they did it. taste was good and had the white chocolate subtle taste. this would be best as a taster or 12 ozer; this was a bomber and by end, the white chocolate got to be too sweet, but tasty and a very unique beer!
