COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We took a crisp, light-bodied cherry ale and hid it away in oak barrels that have held both bourbon and maple syrup. After a lengthy stint, it emerged a changed beer, blanketed in notes of warm vanilla and earthy sweetness. The wood proves itself the star of this beer, adding depth and taming the tart cherry while the maple imposes a velvety texture that lingers for not a moment too long.

Strange weird stuff. Lots of fruits. Also oak and vanilla. Not easy to drink a lot of this. Ok mellow carbonation level. A bit to sweet.
[On tap at Plasterers Arms in Norwich, England]

Bottle & Fox & Hounds, Sønderborg. Pours hazy berry red with airy light pinkish head. Clear aroma of berries, malt and yeast, with touches of wood. Sweetish flavour of malt, vanilla and yeast, with vinous notes of berries and touches of hops and barrel. Dry and barrellike aftertaste with fruity hints. Warming alcohol presence. Complex, but somehow very well balanced and soothing. Good stuff.
