Overly excited for after French toast but was let down. I think FB hit what they were aiming for but it was kinda weak. The beer was very one dimensional. The taste was a muted marshmallow with a hint of the crispy rice in the aftertaste. This beer was not what I was expecting as FB usually nails it with these novelty beers. If you see it I'd probably pick it up for a decent price but wouldn't go out of my way for it.

On tap at the brewery. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Very pale slightly hazy with a small white head. The thinnest of collars. Nothing else.

Smell - Marshmallow is very prominent. Pilsner malt. Not much else.

Taste - Grainy. Very grainy. Not a lot of flavor. Light cereal malt (really). Marshmallow comes out. I get the idea.

Mouthfeel - Light and drinkable. Funny sharp flavor in the back end.

Overall - Not very flavorful, but I get the Rice Krispies Treat idea.

First had: on tap at Devil's Den, Philly, PA

Hazy golden color with a thin white head; minimal lacing. Sweet aroma, spot-on Rice Krispies treat, Nilla wafers, toasted grains. Unfortunately, the taste didn't live up to the aroma. Slight notes of toasted marshmallow, cereal grains, crackery pale malts, creme soda; flavor was good, but on the weak side. Mouthfeel was light and a bit thin. I know it's a cream ale, but it was just a bit lacking overall...except the aroma. A nice idea, but just didn't stack up to FB's other brews. Still neat though.

I try to think of a style that might make for a better Rice Krispie treat beer, but I can't really do it. Maybe a white stout? Inspiring.

On-tap at Funky Buddha's Buddha Goes Wild Night. Served in a 12oz Funky Buddha snifter. I believe this was the debut of this beer.

A- Completely translucent golden color that appears almost completely still in the glass with absolutely no head and pretty much no lacing.

S- Wow smells as much like a Rice Krispies Treat as a beer possibly good. Lots of ultra sweet marshmellow, sugary candy, vanilla, wafers, etc.. Fairly aromatic, but way too sweet/sugary smelling- overall though I think they nailed what they were going for: making this smell like a Rice Krispies Treat as the name would imply!

T- Tastes pretty much like a marshmellow cotton candy flavored cream ale. Very sugary tasting, definitely on the sweeter side for beers.

M- Light, easy drinking (once you get past the sweetness), carbonation a little bit on the low side.

O- This was a very unique beer that I definitely enjoyed trying out. Like all the Funky Buddha beers the flavor profile in this was spot on and it smelled and tasted almost identically like a liquefied Rice Krispies Treat. All the Funky Buddha beers I've had have been amazing, but this one was just a little bit too sweet. Looking at the abv you would think this would be sessionable, I drank my glass no problem but it was just way too sweet to drink more then one. Overall I recommend trying Rice Krispies Ale for the experience but if you get the chance I'd recommend trying the Sweet Potatoe Casserole, No Crusts, or one of their other beers over this.
