3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ Crooked Stave ROY-G-BIV Day. Pours a hazy, yellow orange appearance with an off white head. Somewhat herbal/woody, a bit spicy yeasty, lemony aroma. Moderately dry, a bit funky, lemony citrusy, vanilla flavor. There was a real light hint of veggie in the nose but that probably was just the oak. Anyhow, I didn’t like this one as much as the non-oaked version.
