Many thanks to StefanSD for this great beer!
Rated as "White Chocolate Ale", 22 fl.oz. (651ml), BB 04.09.2014 The beer is orange-golden in the glass, great nose of chocolate and toffee / nougat. The beer starts as the nose promises, but not so sweet. Great aroma of chocolate and nougat together with a smooth, not too sweet and not too bitter wheat beer. The aftertaste is smooth, great combination of nougat and chocolate together with wheat ale hints and a moderate bitterness.
Very great brew! I like this combination. --> 12/12/11/12

Bottle thanks to jkwalking05. Pours with a large white head over a hazed golden body. Aroma of milk chocolate, vanilla bean and cocoa. Taste is cream soda, lots of vanilla bean and some cola notes. Lively bubbles. Interesting!

drowland (7917) - Georgia, USA - MAY 19, 2011
5/16/11. Bomber labeled "White Chocolate Ale" courtesy fata2683! Light golden pour with a frothy off-white head that lasts. This is very interesting. Bright wheat aroma hits at first with lemon peel and soft wheat malts but then lingers with a definite chocolate touch. Slightly tart lemon wheat brew flavor hits first but the lingering flavor is definitely smooth, almost buttery white chocolate. Quite interesting and quite nice!

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Bottle:   Pale straw, lively carbonation, large sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Mealy nose, faint hazelnut.   Very airy on the tongue.   Minor mocha latte with hazelnuts.   BURP!   Seems overcarbonated.   White Chocolate?   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   All the sweetness seems artificial.   Seems like a watered down froo froo coffee, with hazelnuts.   Tastes better than it smells.   Also seems like it could be really poor white chocolate that has been uncovered in the cupboard for a few years.   Sort of a stale white chocolate background. Meh...

Pailhead (6539) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - AUG 15, 2014
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy cocoa powder and light vanilla...maybe a touch of grass. It?s a transparent dull gold with a small white head that eventually fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is some spotty lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of wheat. The finish has light-moderate sweet cocoa powder and vanilla. It?s light bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, it?s probably a good thing I got a 4oz sample. I like chocolate, but straight cocoa powder generally wears on me quickly.
