The beer appeared a hazy, darker amber color that produced a very nice off-white, dense 2+ finger head, which was well retained and last throughout most of the beer. Active carbonation with some yeast floating in the beer.
The beer gave off a nice sweet malty aroma, fruit and yeast. As the beer warmed I think that the wood came out, along with some alcohol.
The taste of the beer was good, nicely balanced, followed the aroma, but got more of the maple/wood.
The beer had a moderate feel to it, good carbonation, smooth and went down very well with food. I am not so sure that this is one that you would necessarily want to drink on its own.
Overall, a very good beer. I have had better from this brewery, but solid none-the-less.
