Bhensonb Woodworks tasting. Pours hazy golden with a beautiful fluffy white head and a perfumed aroma. The flavor is not quite as bitter and a lot smoother, with more overall taste than the reference beer. However, there is a long bitter finish.

375ml Bottle: Aroma of malt, light wood, light hops, slight caramel, some spice. Less fragrant than the other 2 in this series that I have had. Poured orange in color with a large, creamy, dense, beige head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Very sparkling. Full of tiny, as well as many medium and large-sized particles throughout. Flavor is light to medium sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of wood, fruit, hops, malt, tea, yeast, and some tannin. The Acasia wood is noticeably different than the oak used in other versions. Medium body. Tingly, then dry texture. Lively carbonation. Wood, fruit, malt, tea, yeast, and hop finish is dry. 11%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

375ml bottle. Poured a medium amber color with a larger sized fluffy head. Lacing left on the glass. Aromas of wood, some earthiness, very lightly fruity, and had a light smokiness. Tastes of wood, some vanilla, caramel and the same lighter fruitiness.

riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 15, 2010
Nose is an interesting mix of earthy hops, sweet woody notes, dusty yeast, a hint belgian to me. Light fruity hop notes, but mostly an odd woody aspect that I cannot place my finger on. Pours hazy brown orange with a huge fluffy head and sticky lace. Flavors are malty and sweet initially. A good deal of caramel and toasted sweetness, dry earthy notes, a touch bitter, but hop presence is definitely muted and almost dirty. I got hints of honey, dust, and light belgian notes. Rather carbonated, dry mouthfeel, bitterness is minimal, and the 11% is not over powering. An interesting beer.

Pours a hazy brownish amber with an enormous fluffy white head that shows excellent retention and lacing. The aroma is the best of this series with some extremely aromatic wood character. There is some spiciness and a really robust, almost purfume-like, floral aroma that I donít get in any of the others. The dry wine-like Nelson hops are still in full effect. The flavor is very smooth and well balanced. Itís much earthier and less hoppy than the others. All kinds of leather and tannins coming through and the finish is not nearly as dry as the two oak versions. Smooth finish. The mouthfeel is the least effervescent of the series. Itís also the smoothest and most drinkable as the alcohol seems hidden better. All in all, Iíd rate this the best of the bunch though, ironically, itís got the least hop presence. I personally just like the character that this wood gives the beer. Good stuff.

375ml paper wrapped and capped. Pours with some viscosity to it; a hazed almost chewy looking caramel brown with a perfectly formed and stout looking khaki head that lasts. Lots of bready biscuit with hops being subtle yet herbal and perfumey with a touch of dark berry. Dense small carbonation feel with medium light body...not as chewy as it appears. Bitter piney, biscuit caramel, herbal and juniper berries with some oakey tannins on the finish...as well as some alcohol warmth. If you like juniper character, this may be for you...but it wasnít my style, although well made, and certainly not worth the $15.

after4ever (5937) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUL 9, 2010
375, wide-capped and paper wrapped. Pours a pretty and opaque bright bronzed medium amber. Huge dense creamy tan head that really sticks around, showing gorgeous tight bubbles. Lemony, chardonnay-like acidic brightness on the nose. I donít know what acacia wood smells like (historic Greek warships, I suppose), but I am sure the bright fresh-cut wood smell coming through this is acacia. Probably a little too barrely but itís so interesting and singular that itís forgiven. Creamy medium body with tight carb. Lemons, grapefruit, peaches, and fresh cut wood on the mid palate. Mild finish. Really not bad, but, given the ingredients list and the post-ferment effects laid onto this beer, itís not really as dimensional as one might expect.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2010
Bottle from Caponeís. Highly carbonatged pour wwhich pours turbid deep coppery orange with 3 finger fizzy yet clingy off-white head. Nose is earthy malt, resiny piney NS hops, some spicy esters. Tastes earthy, oaky, very resiny, and hot from the start. Gets yeasty and cobwebby late, with more earthy notes and a bit better balance as it warms, and the oak supports rather than taking center stage. Enjoyable.

patrickfannon (1230) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2010
Bottle. 12.7 oz. Split with and courtesy of Vin. Pours a deep, nearly opaque chardonary white wine-orange with a huge, monster, solide head with sediment on top. Slowly fades to a thin, off-white bubbly head. Aroma of sour white grapes, honey, funk, tart cherries, dry wood, and juicy hop resins. Full, smooth body with a rich, ripe fruit palate. Tart in the finish. Awesome double IPA.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Bottle: Nice looking italian-shaped bottle...green, mind you, but wrapped in paper. The beer joins at the bottle of the glass a deep, hazy, dark orangish-brown color...the head atop is twice as tall as the beer underneath...light, fluffy, with a glass sheen and a peach colored hue. Nose is quite nice...a little like the japanese classic...musty, spice-like wood characteristics with a sweet, grapey underlying hop note or two that bends in the way of a molassis-like sweetness acting as a foundation for the spicy wood fumes. Flavors have a lot of that wood influence still...but some pretty intense nelson sauvin bitterness with a sweet, grapey, almost tart bite to it...even so, the sweetness and the bitterness are very complimenting to eachother...neither is too far reaching...and the nice warm alcohol behind it melds them into one. Iím so glad europe is starting to take the IPA and IIPA concept out of the hands of the americans...since american IPAs bore the living shit out of me lately...this brings back some fucking excitement to the style. Shit...I was only planning on drinking 1 beer tonight...but I may tap into that French Oak aged cat next.
