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.

shrubber85 (11220) - 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 (4320) - 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 (4762) - 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 (528) - 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".

zacgillbanks (5013) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2016
5.5% ABV bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Pale hazy straw coloured with no head. It has a sweet vanilla and slight toffee flavour followed by more vanilla on the finish. This tastes just like a beery version of an American Cream Soda.

Aurelius (5230) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 17, 2016
Exceptionally clean-looking label on a nice, embossed, slope-shouldered, short 12 oz. bottle. Kudos to Marketing. Maybe misty, maybe just condensate on the sides of the Purloined Tulip, light straw brew. Vanilla cereal aroma. Flavor is simply cream soda. Body is a bit too light, and the brew loses carbonation. This loses in back-to-back with Shiner Homespun Cream Ale. ABC Liquors, Betton.

ordybill (1664) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - NOV 16, 2016
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a bright golden orange color with a small white head. The aroma is made up of vanilla, wheat, spice and some bread. The taste follows the nose. this is an outstanding beer.
