fiulijn (20222) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle from Downtown Spirits, Seattle
Hazy dark amber color, small head. Huge vanilla oak aroma and flavor; thin body, for this gravity, some malt and fudge flavor, but also vegetables, clearly, and low bitterness.
Very undaring beer, nothing special, definitively cloying.

mcberko (16622) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy dark copper orange with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out honey, vanilla, and cherries. Flavour reveals notes of honey upfront, followed by vanilla and very subtle cherries. The honey and vanilla dominate, with the cherries secondary. ABV is very well-hidden. Finishes with vanilla and honey. Thin body, but well-balanced. Strange beer, but I dig it to an extent.

Ferris (14386) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
Draft - Caramel and butterscotch and light booze. Clear copper with a decent beige head. Butterscotch, vanilla, light booze and I would say much like a wheat wine. Weird but nice.

monk191 (1937) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 19, 2014
A nice variation of a double blond. More belgian tripel then blond. Pours a bright orange color with a good amount of sediment and tan head. Smells of peach, honey, cherries and booze. Taste is quite malty upfront, but with a spiciness as well. Finishes with citrus, cherry and some booziness. Had in the bottle.

Dapierce17 (110) - Pasco, Washington, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Pours a dark caramel in color with very little head and carbonation. Aromas of peaches, honey, caramel, and very slight hints of oak. Medium mouthfeel with flavors of peaches again dominating the palate. Caramel hints come through and the wood from the wine barrels is also present. Extremely good beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rando7 (779) - Iowa, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle pours amber brown with thin head. Malty aroma. Sweet taste of malts, some dark fruit, slight cherry. Very clean finish, not much after taste at all. palate on the thin side, I didnt think it was syrupy at all.

Pleasant sweet beer. I didnt notice the peaches and white wine much but in retrospect they influenced the flavor. Im not sure they got what they were aiming for but its an interesting beer.

22. Pours a clear dark amber with golden brown edges. No lace, tiny head. Sticky sweet cloying nose. Smells like sweetened malt extract. Sticky thick body, sluggish carb. Feels and tastes syrupy. Dense cloying fruit and white sugar and caramel notes. Sticky sweet finish.

Bottle 30/1000 from Malt & Vine. Pours clear copper with a slight off-beige head. Aroma is caramel and mild peach. Med + body. Flavor is caramel and more than mild peach. Theres also a little white grape and oak. Not getting cherry. Finishes dry, fruity and woody. Pretty different, but pretty tasty.
