The beer has an appearance like whiskey, with a beautiful light mahagony colour. Smells like a mix of light oak and malt. The taste is even better than the smell. A taste of light oak with a surprising sweet swirl of vanilla flavour. A sweetness then becomes like orange in taste. Later on, the mellow malt and light bitter hop kicks in at the right amount as a reminder that this is beer afterall, not fruit juice.
The aftertaste is a lingering and fragrant oak scent, not at all sour as initially expected. It is a bit annoying because the hop bitterness and the oak aroma gives a mix that is reminescent of tart whiskey. This beer is more refreshing and lighter than anticipated. Quite a uniqe beer.
