Mmmmmmmmm aroma is pure dessert. White chocolate, dough and marshmallows. Served in a snifter from a bottle. Pours with almost no head and a very clear pale champagne color. It is astonishing to me that they are able to make this so desert-like but still easy to drink. Intense sweet white chocolate and vanilla flavor with a hint of lemon and clove, finishes surprisingly clean. I love the hit of sweetness and clean finish - no syrup here. Very light and delicious! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A bottle said White Chocolate Ale. A clear yellow/golden colored beer, with a thick white head. The aroma of sweet chocolate with malt notes and a little bonbon. The taste of a little sweet chocolate, fruits like citrus almost no hops. The aftertaste is flat and very sweet

Pours an orange golden into pint serving. Tastes and smells like those odd white chocolate chips from Nestle with just enough vegetation, caramel and wheat off to the side to balance it somehow.

Phoenix: Pours very light with virtually no head. The aroma is all white chocolate. The first sip is just like drinking sparkline white chocolate then you realize it is a beer as the light wheat and hops come on. Really smooth and light. Not an everyday drinker but a cool experience.

Wow, how can the aroma be anything but a 10? White chocolate, burnt sugar, and vanilla eminate. Golden color with milky white foam that leaves nice lacing. Taste matches the aroma with residual sweetness and a touch of caramel. Some hop bitterness shows up, but long after the beer is gone. Funny thing is, despite it being very close to white chocolate in both taste and aroma, I don’t think I would buy again. Just a curiosity.

Pours a cloudy golden. No head whatsoever. Aromas of white chocolate, cocoa, malt and sugar. Initial flavor is of white chocolate, a nice semi hoppy pale flavor, sugar, milk and cream. Mouthfeel is smooth and semi silky. Definitely a different beer. The white chocolate is a nice additive. This is definitely a beer worth trying.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2011 Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Nothing like the bottle suggested. The aroma is almost all white chocolate, there’s also a hint of wheat. The taste is amazingly good, the white chocolate is there but it’s not overwhelming or too sweet. It’s just a perfectly balanced wheat beer with a hint of white chocolate. Super good. The first couple batches of this they put out were really sour. I’m glad they’ve finally cleaned up their brewing process because this is a fantastic beer.

Draft at Whole Foods Chandler. Pours golden with half an inch of white foam. Smells a bit like a tootsie roll on the nose. This beer tastes just like white chocolate without being cloying or lingering to long on the palate. Really a well-crafted beer.

puch in phx; this is one unique beer. bottle stated white chocolate ale. about the most accurate/unique aroma ever - it was white chocolate!! not sure how they did it. taste was good and had the white chocolate subtle taste. this would be best as a taster or 12 ozer; this was a bomber and by end, the white chocolate got to be too sweet, but tasty and a very unique beer!

Poured up on tap at Taste of Tops with with clear gold body and tiny white head. The bold aroma offers up saltine cracker, crusty caramel and chocolate. The taste is overly sweet and I’m damn glad I only have invested in a 6oz pour as opposed to a whole bottle. I get sugary malt sweetness some chocolate and sugary sweet cream soda. Hmmm?
