Pour is hazy golden color. Light, white head with a little lacing.
Nose is true to name with oak dancing in on citrusy hops. Lemon zest. Oak is there, but noverly pronounced.
Entry is clean, dry, crisp - opens nicely to smooth middle when a blast of hop bittering kicks in. Flavors of honey malts, fresh fruits, hint of melon, and oak backing throughout. Again, oak does not overpower, but works nicely.
The bittering is very well done on the finish - long snappy bitterness. Flavors of wild-flower honey, crystal malt. Floral hop flavors. Mouthfeel didn't quite hold up.
A nice surprise. Considering this is relatively new entrant to craft beer scene, no bottle issues, no off flavors, and packs nice hop smack down in a new and interesting. One to seek out and try.
