Thanks Ron and crew for sending some of this up north. Pours a clear and basically still rich golden. Picking up some different house barrels in the nose...light vanilla, apricot, almond, touch of brown sugar, and soft bourbon notes. Body has some feel to it and carb is present on the palate, albiet soft. Apricot, hints of lemon/apple tartness, marzipan...quite crisp and clean...barrel come in toward the end with warming oak notes. Nice stuff.

Draft @ Barrel House; slight hazy gold with brown tints and thin white head; toasted vanilla, dry oak, lemons, sweet bourbon; delicate mouthfeel with a dry sweetness; bourbon is subtle, toasted oak, creamy vanilla oats; raw bourbon the more I drink; lovely beer and bourbon addition is yummy
