Pours a bright copper color with a finger of white head. Nose opens with caramel and toffee with lots of oak and vanilla. Hint of orange and lemon peels with just a light spiciness. Some toasted bread in the background. The flavor has a light bitterness along with a strong wood note. Touches of vanilla, citrus peel hops, and a decent malt sweetness to it. Overall, not bad, just sort of okay.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle-purchased in Austin TX June 2012-pours lightly hazy apricot hue with a small sudsy white head eround the rim of the glass that lasted the whole time. nose is cool-wood, oak, lite peaches, lite bright grape note, but the oak really shines through here. at first i thought it was a bit odd but i have grown to like it over the course of the beer. flavors exhibit the big oak flavors with a very pronounced resinous bitterness with lite leafy/tobacco character. lots of pine/resin hop flavors with the woody undertones from both the oak and hop flavors. unique and cool brew here glad i picked up a couple of these in Austin. For some reason, i was thinking this was going to be a sour beer.
