2.48/5  rDev -39.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A- Pours a golden amber color with very little head that goes away very fast and leaves a very small amount of bubbles on the edges. Lacing is decent.

S- Smells of grapefruit and lemon. On the back end there is some vanilla probably from the oak.

T- Taste seems to be almost unnaturally sweet with vanilla oak flavors that take over the great piney hoppy flavor. The grapefruit is not nearly as strong as it should be.

M- Goes down fairly creamy smooth, almost too much so.

D- Overall, I think this is almost too strong on the vanilla sweetness and is kinda harsh on the stomach. I am not sure what it is with Southern Tier beers, they seem to be either really sweet or overpowered in the flavor that they advertise.

Holy oak taste, Batman!

Forget aged in oak. This tastes like I'm just drinking right out of the barrel. Oak, brown, tannins. That's what this beer tastes like. Also some hops and malt... but mostly just oak.

No real good aromas to speak of.

What am I drinking? Sigh. Drinkable and unique, but wouldn't have it again
