Finally re-reviewing this long time fave. 500 ml can served fairly cold into a pint glass. Purchased for $2.95 CDN. Upon looking at my original score, I believe I have overrated this by some amount.

Appearance - rich bronze color, with about a half finger of white head, with minimal retention time and minimal lacing. Clear but with very few bubbles.

Smell - tons of vanilla and plenty of the oak aged barrel smell. Not a ton else, maybe some mild salted caramel, but the vanilla and oak are the stars.

Taste - vanilla with a earthy backbone, again I presume from the oak aged barrels. A touch of caramel again. It's pretty straightforward but for newbies to the craft beer scene, it's extraordinarily original.

Mouthfeel - light carbonation, but a bit spritzy although a heavier than average body. Somewhat syrupy although it works here with the flavours.

Overall- it's not as good as I had originally rated it, but I contend that it might still be the best offering in their lineup. Definitely something to enjoy time and again.

It come in a white transparent bottle with an elegant label.
Golden color with a two finger head with low retention.
Light aroma of malt, wood and vanilla.
Now it got interesting, I was really surprised with the amount of vanilla flavors in this brew. Hints of apple juice, whiskey, oak and toffee. Dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness.
Light to medium body with an acid sensation.
Very original beer, flavorful and quite refreshing. Well worth it a try.
