Funky Buddha Stickie Treats
12oz into a tulip
On tap at The Pour House Channelside
Consumed (and reviewed) Oct 2017


A: Light straw yellow, essentially no head of lacing. 3.5

S: Aroma is fairly subtle overall, but it is reminiscent of rice crispy treats with marshmallow and rice crispies. Aroma gets a little stronger as it warms. 4

T: Taste up front is nothing special, light lager style/pilsner-sequel notes. However, on the finish there is some sweetness that is fairly reminiscent of rice crispy although it's subtle. 3.75

M/D: Lighter bodied, carbonation moderate, drinkability is average. 3.5

O: Fairly disappointing. Granted I have high expectations for FB, and I applaud the effort, it just falls short. Not bad but I wouldn't seek it out. 3.75

Not terrible but not great. I don't taste much marshmallow or vanilla. Instead, I get a weed taste? Very weird. Maybe there is a hint of marshmallow on the back end. My husband has had the Sticky Nuts version of this beer and said it was wonderful.

I don't see a bottle date listed.

Appearance: The beer has a hazy gold body with a thick white head. It has good retention and lacing.

Aroma: It has a slightly floral potpourri aroma.

Taste: The beer has a fairly prominent cereal grain flavor with a sweetness to it.

Mouthfeel: It is smooth and easy to drink. It has a bit of a slickness to it towards the end.

Overall: It's a good Blonde Ale so if you are looking for that then this is what you want. The label does say that this is a "BLONDE ALE WITH VANILLA" and the vanilla never came through in the flavor or aroma. I would drink it again and I would share it with others but I would let them know it doesn't taste like vanilla. It tastes like it leans heavily on the grain for the sweetness.

Pale gold with a two finger head. Mellow aroma and flavor of vanilla cake. For a moment, it reminds me a bit of Anderson Valley's Summer Solstice but with a bit less flavor, depth, and sweetness. On the lightest side of medium-bodied. It's drier than expected, and is quite easy to drink, maybe a bit too easy. I think if the body was just slightly bigger, this would be a sticky treat indeed.

12 oz bottle with an August 2018 bottling date in a lager glass in November 2018.
Pours clear pale golden with a decent head.
Aroma: spicy hops and faint vanilla.
Flavor: the vanilla is also quite faint here ,,, until the finish and aftertaste. flavor. This make for a nice transition from the more hop forward, with bready grains carrying all the way thru. Less sweet (near neutral)than expected.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a pale straw color with a one-finger foamy bubbly white head that has short retention

S- rice and toasted malt, grainy, light vanilla

T- toasted malt up front, with a sugary sweetness that turns into a vanilla flavor as it nears the finish, lingers of what could be perceived as marshmallow

M- medium-light body with medium biting carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues into the finish

O- FB's food flavored beers are usually spot on, but this one falls a bit short, still worth a try

L: Had this on-tap at Capital Ale House - Innsbrook, poured into a pint glass. Had a bright, golden yellow color and a clear consistency. There was a half inch of creamy, fairly long-lasting head. Not a whole lot of lacing.

S: A pretty good aroma of malt, rice, sugar, marshmallows, and vanilla.

T: Tasted of a bit of malt (a steady presence), a surprising amount of vanilla, a little bit of rice, a whole lot of marshmallows (more than anything), and some sugar as well. Kind of an uneven flavor here. Yes, it does taste like Rice Krispie treats up front, but it's desperately thin and watery in the finish. Still, not a bad flavor.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a thin, watery finish. Light-bodied.

O: This is an uneven beer with some good qualities. Worth a look.

T: I don't get much except artificial marshmallow flavor

M: thin and watery

O: it tastes like a Belgian homebrew my buddy Jacob and I messed up and tried to cover up by soaking rice crispy treats in it...

Pours a pale yellow, with strong notes of vanilla off the nose. Very light and smooth, with strong tasting notes of vanilla and marshmallow at the end. Delicious blonde!

I was expecting something a bit sweeter with this, and this is definitely not it...

It all started well enough - looked great in the glass with it's yellow colored liquid, orange highlights, with thin foam and no lacing. The smell was by far the best attribute of this beer - a strong and slightly sweet smell of marshmallows - mouthwateringly delicious. The mouthfeel was decent enough too - light, carbonated, and surprisingly dry - from the first sip to the last. This leads me to the taste, which I had hoped would have been sweet, but was far from it. As advertised, this just wasn't what I was expecting. Overall, not a bad brew, actually solid enough as a blonde ale, just not sweet enough given all the markings on the label...

Lively carbonated, light yellow looking, & vanilla scented candle type of aroma on the nose. This does taste sort of like a rice krispie treat especially on the finish that is where that vanilla is left on your mouth. It is sweet tasting, but I don't think it is overly sweet like some people are describing the flavor to be. This beer needs a more yellow cake like type of mouthfeel to make this beer even better. Overall, the addition of the rice & vanilla does kick this blonde ale up a notch. I don't love it but I do like it a lot. I am thinking high B grade on this one. NO DATE on the bottle btw. Cheers! A-

A: Poured into a snifter to a light straw gold topped by a dense two finger head which fades quickly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of vanilla and marshmallow with some citrus notes
T: Taste is sweet and marshmallow like on entry with a little vanilla and an almost rice like character on the palate. Swallow is more marshmallow and a little vanilla along with that rice not and a little citrus
M: This beer has a fairly light body which is close to being watery without crossing that line. The carbonation on the beer is slightly prickly and it has a refreshing finish.
O: Overall this isn't a bad beer at all but it does leave a little to be desired. The flavors are interesting but it would have been better for them to be a little more forward and for the base beer to bring a little more to the party.
