I brewed a batch, and it was pretty awful at first. I let it age about 6 months, and it was not bad... drinkable... but not my style. Too lactose-y for an amber beer. Generally just wasn't happy with that batch.

I made some about two years ago, and I actually liked the 'creme soda beer' flavor. However, the last batch I made may have had an infection because ALL the sweetness fermented out and it tastes like an ass sandwich made of ass and poo.

Man.... years ago, at a picnic I think; I poured some cream soda into my can of beer. I thought I was crazy even then for liking it but I like sweeter stuff. I'll take a fruit beer over a porter and a witbeir over a dubbel anyday

I've made this twice. 2 years ago, with the extract recipe, and last spring as an all-grain. I think long term aging is the key-it mellows out nicely. For example, the all grian batch I brewed in May, had in primary for 3 or 4 weeks, moved to 2ndary and let it sit for most of the summer. I finally kegged it at the end of August, and just tapped it last week.

It's not to everyones taste, but I really like it. I also use less lactose than the recipe calls for so its not too sweet. This current batch will last several months since it is like a "dessert" beer-last beer of the night, or one and done.
