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.

radarsock (1179) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 26, 2016
This had come in a 12 oz. bottle 6pack format. Drank with family as we feverishly played Mario Kart under a darkly painted sky in the suburbs.
Has a lightly orange hue. Snowy white head half a finger mounted its liquid horse atop.
Nice.

Upon propping the bottle up to my nose, I instantly get substantial whiffs of unripe guava, crumbled white bread, vanilla extract, (vanilla) Whey protein, and LME.
Nothing memorably changes if let out. Maybe a little papery presence but thats about all.
Tastes much the same, with the addition of sweat, aged hops (German in variety), and melon pith.
Mouthfeel is the best part of this entire beers performance. Velvety smooth with just a touch of graininess lingering when swallowed.
Unoffensive, easy drinking. Just what I like.

jw0406 (1220) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2016
12 oz bottle pours a hazy golden color with a nice white head. Aromas of wheat, vanilla, slight citrus. Light bodied, a nice light beer with some flavor.

minutemat (5035) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2016
355ml bottle from Beer Gonzo. Pours a misty gold, medium white head. Aroma is light wheat malt and doesnt throw out much vanilla unfortunately, although it does come out nicely on the palate. Works well with the wheat malt. Reminds me a lot of cream soda.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4912) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 8, 2016
Bottle from Taniguchi. A wheat beer made with vanilla extract. A very lightly cloudy gold with a fruity vanilla wheat aroma. The taste is like a creamy vanilla oatmeal, a bit over the top in terms of vanilla but flavorful and drinkable. Not too bad.

AshtonMcCobb (6258) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 28, 2016
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - golden yellow with a thin attractive head. Nose - custard and malt bag. Taste - lemon curd and flowers. Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - ok but could be fresher.

shrubber85 (11083) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 25, 2016
Bottle. Vanilla, wheat malt, and straw aroma. Golden yellow with giant white head. Mildly sweet vanilla, wheat malt, and mildly bitter straw flavor. Okay body. Okay but vanilla flavor comes across as artificial.

IndianaRed (4139) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 24, 2016
Bottle a hazy pale golden. Nice vanilla flavors. Pale light malts. Not much wheat character. Clean lingering vanilla trailer. Interesting experiment not bad.

chinchill (4679) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 19, 2016
12 fl. oz. bottle in a goblet on 19 November, 2016. The pour is a slightly hazy golden color with a short, weak head. Minimal lacing. Aroma: vanilla, light bread and spicy hops. Flavor: lots of vanilla, perhaps too much, along with a faint toasted malt note and light, spicy hops. Medium body.

DarkMagus (517) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 19, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2016 Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a rapidly dissipating white head. Heavy vanilla aroma with not much else. Flavors were heavy on the vanilla, wheat, a bit of tartness, some bread/grains, and a hint of bitterness. This is essentially a cream soda beer. Not unpleasant but not really my thing. I could see people drinking these in large quantities, maybe a good beer to give to people who "dont like beer".
