It is what it says it is. Smells like white chocolate and tastes like white chocolate. Though I only consume stouts, I somehow found this beer to be very unique and drinkable. It is also interesting to mix a bit of this into a chocolate or coffee stout.

Poured a rich, cloudy gold with bubbles going up the glass and three fingers of fluffy white head that left thick lacing on the glass. Very nice, a good wheat beer appearance. Scents of milk and white chocolate, some faint, sour berry-like notes and some faint vanilla. Not a lot going on in the aroma other than the chocolate aromas, very sweet but not bad. Flavors of milk and white chocolate, moderately sweet, with a bit of a hot chocolate flavor that gets more intense in the finish and aftertaste. Sweetness is balanced by some grainy and cracker malt flavors, most apparent on the aftertaste. There are also some mild, earthy hop flavors in the background, some vanilla and a slight hint of sourness. All this works to balance the sweetness of the chocolate flavors and make a good, not overly complex flavor profile that is quite nice. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with a moderate level of carbonation and a mouthfeel quite similar to eating chocolate. A good feeling and quite easy to drink, very refreshing. Overall this is an interesting beer. The addition of chocolate to a light American Pale Wheat makes for an interesting combination of flavors that makes this a unique twist on a style I've found to be very homogenous. Quite good.

Interesting concept for a beer, a which chocolate Wheat Ale.

A - Golden colored beer with a white head that faded leaving some random lacework on the sides.

S - Well, there's a kind of chocolate smell here, a little bit skunked, kind of not great.

T - It tastes like white chocolate. Pretty interesting, and very different. I'm not a huge white chocolate fan, but it's good for what it is.

M - Lighter bodied beer, moderate carbonation.

O - This is fine for what it is, although I don't really care a ton for it. Interesting to try, but that's about it.
