look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: The beer is rather hazy dark yellow in color. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a thick collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of oak barrels are present in the nose, along with some notes of apricot and hints of chardonnay.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the flavors of chardonnay and apricot are much more apparent and outshine the oak. Some hints of pepper are present in the finish.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. No dryness is apparent.
O: The barrel aging really adds complexity to this beer and makes the overall taste interesting, but does not overpower the apricot flavors.
