1 liter swing top bottle shared with pineypower, thanks Dean. Ok I sampled this before at BCTC 2008 and swore it must have been a different beer because I got zero white choclate in the aroma and flavor. Well this sample showed me that it was in fact the same beer but at least this time I was able to smell/taste some white chocolate. The base beer beer on this was a very odd choice, a light golden ale with a slight sour backbone. This lead to aromas and flavors of white chocolate, lemons, and sourness. Combinbing chocolate and peanut butter = awesomeness, combinbing white chocolate and sour = fail.

draft, this is weird. Chocolate flavors in a pale ale that was light. Interesting for sure.

Un liquide dor massivement carbonat qui a la texture dun soda et le profil gustatif est hyper vanill.. Cest russi dans la mesure o lobjectif est de reproduire le crme soda. Je men serais pass.

Bottle thanks to somebody, rating from my backlog. The smell is white chocolate, weird, butter, sweet, and cocoa. The look is golden in color, thin white head, and clear. The taste is sweet, chocolate, weird, vanilla, and cream.

Bottle received as extra in trade. Thank you Daknole! Labeled white Chocolate Ale. Pours tiny hazy golden with a small frothy white head that doesnt leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is, well, strange with unfermented grains, low quality white chocolate, cereal, lemon zest, soil, hay and milk duds. Taste is tiny sweet, tiny bitter and tiny sour with grains, crackers, cereal, lemon juice, vanilla beans, hay, dry soil and possibly hints of white chocolate if you really try hard to find it. Mouthfeel is crisp, phenolic astringent and light bodied. Finish is bitter and tiny sour with grains, cereal, hay, dry soil and lemon zest. Not my cup of tea at all. Hopefully ill get the chance to see what Arizona really has to offer at some point.

Thanks hellbilly for the extra. Pours a light mildly hazy yellow with a two finger frothy white head. The nose is very interesting and touts what it claims, white chocolate, sweet, cherry almond, earthy. The flavor was sweet and showed lots of white chocolate, mild crisp bite. The palate is crisp and sweet. Very interesting brew.

Thanks ratebeef! Pours a clear golden yellow from the bottle with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma of sweet chocolate and thats about it. Taste is same, heavy on the processed chocolate. Not exactly what Im looking for in a beer.
