Bottle shared somewhere in Bk. notes. Very odd beer. Close to the pet peeve, heineken. Creamy skunk, maybe a bad bottle. Will average rating due. Cannot drink this stuff. (Need to rerate eventually)

Thanks Dakine! Pale cloudy yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is a "chemical" white chocolate. Taste is wheat beer with a medicine flavoring. dry. Nice lacing.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 16, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2008 This brew is a masterpiece. Pours with a pale almost creamy yellow color throwing off a shortlived spritzy froth. Minimal lacing with beachball sized spattering. Beautiful aromas of fresh cocoa and a bit of coffee essence. Smells like brownies. Light to medium nectar with lively carbonation that turns to CREAM on the palate. Nice! This brew is not sweet at all with huge flavors of brownies and coffee although on the lean side. The finish is bittered mildly and is dry with lingering chocolate biscuit essence. I would agree with the commercial description. Well done!

kathouse (1750) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - MAY 22, 2012
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 dont think I would buy again. Just a curiosity.

Bottle, thanks to some mystery person on the RBSG bus.Nose is lemon, spice, chalk, pineapple, white pepper. Flavours of white peppper, chocolate, vanilla, lemons. Tight and spicy, almost slightly medicinal. Different, Ill give it that.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Thanks ratebeef! Clear golden pour with a small bubbly white head that fades fast. Nose is vanilla beans, chocolate chips and cake batter. Fuck yeah it's my birthday. Flavor is very similar but not as bright as the aroma and sort of a thin palate. Can definitely pick out the pale malts in this beer. Pretty interesting though and glad to have tried it.

Barreras (1647) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Pours a light yellow color with a distinct malt white chocolate malt aroma. Taste is similar, white chocolate malt flavor with a slight carbonated aftertaste. A little thin beer, but different.

MeadMe (1642) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2010
A: Pours a nice pale yellow hue tall fizzy head. Little retention and lace. S: White chocolate for sure. Real not extract either. Light wheat notes round things out. T: White chocolate extract, light vanilla, wheaty grain, and citrus, and a hint of tartness. M: Light fizzy hefe like. D: Its kind of all over the place. I like the vanilla, wheat, and extract. The citrus takes it into left field.
