I was worried about the vanilla being overpowering. It's not.
I'm drinking my last can right now, and the hop selection really works. There is a smooth transition from the vanilla sweetness into a finish grounded by the hops. Enjoying it as an after-dinner beverage. Foaming up in my mouth, it reminds me a bit of childhood ice cream sodas. It's probably better access to the memory than the real thing -- if I had an ice cream soda now, I'm sure it would feel like too much.
Certainly best cold, but it held up fairly nice as it warmed a bit. Was able to bring a can on a few stroller walks around the neighborhood.
I feel like vanilla so often goes wrong in beer and other beverages, and this execution was impressive.
Also love the nature of the collab -- not just an empty celebration of International Women's Day on the can, but really doing something to benefit women in the brewing industry.
Wouldn't want to have it all the time, but hope this or something similar emerges again in the future.
