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.”

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.

Sampler at the brewery. Pours hazy golden, thin white head. Aroma of wheat and vanilla. Taste, sweet vanilla, light hops, overly smooth with excellent touch of the vanilla. Beer keeps a grainy palate and keep a wheat profile Simple, easy to drink, and overly tasty. I want more..

Tap at brewpub. Hazy straw with one finger creamy white head, down to a film before long. Smells like crisp wheat and light sweet vanilla. Simple and pretty satisfying. Flavor still has the vanilla, still the crisp wheat. Well-attenuated, otherwise the sweet and vanilla could be too much. As it is, it’s great. Dry finish, bitterness negligible with lingering wheat. Light to moderate carbonation with a light body. Easy drinker for sure, but I think its great. Seems almost funny I’ve grabbed a few growlers of this in the past instead of their other hoppier well-known offerings.

Draft at the brewpub. Golden color with a small head. Nice nose. Wheaty and vanilla, duh? Taste pretty much the same, nice intial wheat based beer followed by a sweet vanilla taste. Body is simple and clean. Very light and refreshing. Good stuff

Bottle at Bishops Cave. Lots of vanilla but with a hint of citrus to perk it up. Surprisingly delicious. Lightly hoppy bitterness.

I picked up a growler while passing through Alpine to visit relatives. Appears a very bright straw color with nice clarity. Nose is very pleasant with the vanilla filling nicely in the background. The taste is very smooth, the wheat presence is light and perfect and the vanilla is not over done and peaks very well towards the end. I drank this entire growler and I wanted to turn around and grab two or three more on my way back. Awesome brew Pat, keep ’em coming~

the name is creepy .. . gold .. mild foam .. . gettting a lot of vanilla of course, a touch slick .. . not bad but just a bit out there .. . . its awkward touching hands with another man in a popcorn bag, especially if you dont know the man & he doesnt know youre eating his popcorn
