COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Since “Willy” is so versatile and can be flavored with fruits and essences, we add a touch of vanilla extract to compliment the sweet nuttiness. Also good mixed with Captain Stout, a blend we call “The Captain and Vanil.”

Crisp, ever so slightly hazy golden coloured body with absolutely no head at all. Aroma of wheat, pungent metal and medicinal scents and a touch of vanilla and oak, but not much of anything else or anything too pungent. Light-bodied; Deep super strong flavour of vanilla, almost too pungent, like a custard or cream, with a touch of malt (with no real wheat detected), some grasses and dry oak, but the vanilla and caster sugar sweetness come out more than anything else. Aftertaste is perhaps a tad too vanilla-centric with a lot of sweetness and vanilla/oak flavours and not much of anything else. Overall, an interesting beer, although pretty much what I expected, which is sad to say, not a great beer - good if you like light-bodied, easy-drinking beers with a TON of vanilla notes! I sampled this stubby-ish twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Pentagon City (Arlington), Virginia on 02-October-2016 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington, in front of the store on 15-June-2017. ’Best By: 24-December-2016 on label’.

Looks good, pours a pale copper, frothy beige head. Aroma is like cream soda, strikes me as artificial initially. Thin on the tongue, pale malts, dominated by vanilla though. If they tones it down it would be an improvement. Still refreshing but one of my least favorite offerings from Alpine.
