A hit of vanilla up front that disappears quickly. Too gimmicky? Is it their pale ale with vanilla? I’ve got 2 more in the 12 bottle taster pack. I’ll drink them no problem. Probably won’t buy this beer again.

Poured from 330mL bottle. Clear copper brown with small off-white head. Vanilla, malt, toffee nose. Buttery vanilla cookie taste to start that transforms into mild hoppy taste. No finish. Fairly thin. Buy again? Maybe.

Light copper pour. Aroma is biscuit, along with vanilla. Light body, relatively thin, average carbonation. Flavour is lightly roasted malts with hazelnut, caramel, and vanilla. Sweet, but not overpowering. Session worthy.

Draft at Christie’s. Head-to-head taste test with Rickard’s Cardigan (yep). Shockingly bad. Artificial vanilla with some beer (?) thrown in. Seriously, tastes like taking weakened shots of artificial vanilla extract. A bit of malt in the beer, no bitterness... at least the vanilla fades on the finish. Maybe they added extract to the keg here, or maybe I’m just in denial that Tree could make something so ghastly. My female friend called it a "chick beer" in the most derogatory sense. If you’re a baker stay clear!

On tap in a sleeve at The Met. I won’t spend a lot of words on this one. It’s okay, but the predominant flavor is vanilla with a bit of hop noticeable. Okay.

From bottle. Aroma is Toffee, vanilla and malt. Pours reddish-brown with slight head. Big vanilla taste up front that fades fast. Sweet, light-bodied. A little thin with a watery finish. Would enjoy stronger longer lastign flavours.

Gerbeer (2931) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 27, 2012
Pours copper with light head. Light sugary aroma. Flavors of toffee and malt, and Xmas pudding. As stated, a bit thin but OK.

caramel, bread, butterscotch, amber/orange, clear, minimal head, light sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, light body, thin feel, soft carbonation, light bitter vanilla finish Pours a nice amber copper with very minimal head. Aromas of vanilla/spice/bread immediate, and begin to fade quickly. Caramel and vanilla aoma lingers longer. Quite thin mouthfeel with slight cabonation. Flavour of vanilla and light spices combine with an initial slight sourness that turns to a lightly astringent, short lived bitter finish with more vanilla. Reminds me a bit of vanilla creme caramel. A nice light Christmas time beer.

Bottle. Toffee, vanilla and malt aroma. Pours reddish-brown with small amounts of head. Big vanilla taste up front that fades fast. Sweet, light-bodied. A little thin with a watery finish. Could stand to have more substance.

Bottle - Malty with significant vanilla aroma. Clear amber hue with minimal head. Toasted malt taste with a ton of vanilla but not too sweet, ever so slight bitterness in the finish. A little too carbonated for my taste, but a nice tasting winter ale.
