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.

From growler. A hazy golden beer with a beige head. The aroma has strong notes of wheat combined with notes of vanilla. The flavor has strong notes of wheat and medium notes of barley malt, and vanilla, leading to a dry wheaty finish where the vanilla note lingers.

On tap at Alpine, pours clear pale golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of vanilla, and subtler lemony notes. Flavour is similar, with loads of vanilla atop lemony and citrusy notes. Pretty refreshing - the vanilla adds a nice element to the base beer. Solid stuff.

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 3, 2010
A: The pour is a clear golden color with a fluffy white head. S: The nose is sweet and has a strong vanilla presence. I still am able to pick up some of the wheat as well, which I was a bit surprised by. T: While the vanilla flavor is pronounced, it is not overwhelming (like I feared it might be). The beer is definitely sweet, but not cloying. As with the nose, I was amazed by how much "beer" flavor was still there. It was almost reminiscent of a Nilla Wafer cookie. M: The body is medium with a bit of crispness and a moderate level of carbonation. D: I was expecting this to be just bad, but it was actually quite a nice balance of malt and sweet vanilla flavors. I dont think Id suck down a growler, but a glass was nice.

Tap @ MBBC, Copenhagen, 2017. Pours hazy yellow with a small off white head. Vanilla and fruit. One dimensional slight synthetic and very forgettable.

Ferris (14832) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2013
Draft - Vanilla and wheat. Pale clear yellow with a thin head. Huge vanilla and a wheat finish. Although they warn you this is soda like, it is hard to believe. Light, refreshing and fun but not beer. I would still drink it anyways.
