A while back my friend Aaron had mentioned something about a Neapolitan ice cream beer that I wanted to try out. I was unable to find it until I checked www.mybeercollectibles.com and saw this one for a very small price. I figured I go for it as I don’t think I would have found it anyways. The idea of a Neapolitan ice cream and beer was mind blowing. It is an idea that makes me want to actually make a recipe like this. Anyway, let’s see what this brew has to offer. Cheers!

Like an unbelievable frothy Neapolitan ice cream. Whatever they did to get this beer to be like Neapolitan, they did it. It is literally a liquid ice cream. There’s so much flavor goodness, so much its crazy. This is definitely a must try and worth the money. I think though they should have made this one a 22oz bottle though. Now with that being said, I have to figure out how to make this brew a reality and brew my own recipe. Highly recommended.
Neapolitan from RWBY was the obvious choice in this pairing. She is technically one of the Antagonists of the series. Her sweet stare is only that, sweet. She along with Cinder are evil. She is kind of the psychotic one. I am not sure what she has to do with the beer in terms of her personality but for characteristics, she is all over this beer, colors, flavors, label and all.
