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.”

Best by July 17th. Hazy orange, an " of foam. Vanilla, wheat, light citrus smell. Big vanilla taste, sweet notes from the vanilla and maybe honey. Really low level of bitterness. Nice use of vanilla, me thinks.

From a beer hawk mystery case. Pours golden with slight haze. Vanilla smell. Reminds me of cream soda. No hops I could detect. Ok for a change but not one I will be seeking out in future. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I like the vanilla in this

AirForceHops (7334) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 13, 2017
Bottle purchased at Greg & Jane’s. Cloudy gold with full lasting white head. Nose so sweet vanilla, wheat malt, and mildly bitter citrus peel.

The vanilla flavor comes across pretty strong in the finish. Yeah, it is what you would expect overall. Simple and straightforward, although a tad overly sweet.

3.7
kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow body with a one finger fizzy white head. The nose is rather nice and subtle, some light wheat and an authentic smelling vanilla note. The flavor is vanilla forward, but still fairly light and subtle, it’s not overpowering at all. The wheat malt base is clean and dry with a minimal yeastiness. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering vanilla finish. Pretty good stuff, I was not expecting to like this so much.

3.2
Ron (3999) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2017
Bottle. Pours a pale golden yellow with a foam head that quickly disappears. Aroma is vanilla. Flavor is vanilla and some malt. Has a medium body with plenty of carbonation. I enjoy vanilla but I like it better in a stout.

3.4
thornecb (5949) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 24, 2017
Pours clear gold into a shaker. Bright white head recedes to hug rim. Vanilla and wheat aromas. Dry with sweet vanilla and sourdough upfront turning to banana before returning to vanilla in the lasting finish.

3.2
Strykzone (7430) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2017
12 oz. bottle from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Lightly hazed and golden. A noisy off white head soon disappears completely. Aroma is vanilla and pepper. The flavor is dominated by vanilla but it is not over done. Some gentle fruit under that and rich malts that are cereal. Not complex but pleasant.
