Taste is vanilla, light hops, caramel and toffee. Really wood dominant, with lightly toasted oak. Reminds me of the Woodcut beers a bit. Wood notes dominate the hop character. Lively bubbles.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear copper with full tan head. The full pungent aroma is a mix of citrus, oakiness, a touch of sour citrus and mild spicy rye notes. The taste is a touch prickly with carbonation tossing up spicy oak, malt sweetened citrus and then mildly drying white wine. Around that array of flavors are various oak spiciness and spicy hops. Tasty stuff that creates just hints of the booze from barrel aging. It does end up with a rather thin body.
