Pours a clear straw with a decent white head. The nose...oh man...smelling this reminds me of my trips to Napa. The wooden barrels permeating the air and sending me to a place that puts me in a different world. The one I need to be in for this experience. Strong oak, though not overpowering. For an oaked beer, I don't see how it could be any better; hence the 5. The flavor. Of course there is a serious influence from the oak here. But is also hits you with a slight tang that gets your taste buds to really pay attention. The oak does not last a long time, but while it is there it is making itself known. Strong apple presence as well. Borders on cider-esqe. I am revising my review and giving the taste a 5. Feel is slightly carbonated, but not thick at all. Very drinkable as far as being such a unique and interesting brew. But it's not a session beer. Too distinct, too pungent, and way too elegant to be slamming these all night, though I would love to have this one another time. Awesome. I am ecstatic to be able to try this one, but pissed that I have no (local) way to get more in New Mexico. Seek and find.
Edit: After tasting everything from the six pack, this one is by far the best. In a class of it's own.
