COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer is brewed by Daniel Westmoreland from the Williamsburg, Va. brewery and was developed in collaboration with brewmasters Mike Anderson in Jacksonville, Fla. and Dan Kahn in Cartersville, Ga. “We took staves from fresh bourbon barrels and we aged the beer on those staves and spiced it with a hint of vanilla,” said Westmoreland, who has been a Budweiser brewmaster for more than 30 years. “It’s an all-malt brew, and it has a perfect color that is similar to the color of bourbon itself. Batch No. 23185 has a nice vanilla aroma with a little oakiness on the end – it’s a great beer.”

bhensonb (11246) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Bottle from a Grocery Outlet. Pours clear amber with a transient off-white head. Aroma is hints of bourbon with some vanilla. Near med body. Flavor is light caramel with some vanilla. With time there’s hints of bourbon and some oaky astringency. Makes me think of Innis & Gunn. This is a pretty nice little beer.

adnielsen (9247) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a dark golden orange appearance with a big foamy, off white head. Creamy, a bit corny, lemon, light vanilla aroma. A bit tangy, a bit strong, fairly smooth woody, grainy, pale malty, vanilla flavor. Not a ton from the oak (nothing bourbon that I can detect) but a pretty decent brew. I can see myself getting WBW on this in Iowa City.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine West Richmond, VA. Pours a clear amber color with a large foamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of grainy malts and the mildest oak you can imagine. The taste is grainy malts, vanilla, faint whisky and faint bourbon. Grassy hops. Thin-medium bodied. Bland and weak, but not bad.

Bottle. Sweet artificial cherry and vanilla malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Very light sweet barley malt and vanilla flavor. Medium body. Not a fan of the aroma and not much in the flavor department - I’m shocked.
