Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at CCB tasting room. Served in a pint glass.

A: Hazy orangeish-gold, with a one-finger eggshell fluffy head and moderate visible carbonation.

S: Tropical fruit, oaky vanilla, orange citrus and tropical fruit hops, and bready malt.

T: Tropical fruit, orange hops, oak, woody dry tannins, and some vanilla that adds a bit of sweetness. Subdued malt presence, and overall moderately bitter on the finish.

M: Seems a bit heavier-bodied than the base beer. Carbonation sensation is a bit low, and alcohol presence well-hidden.

O: This was a good beer, but I would prefer the base beer. I know I'm in the minority, but the white oak is not my favorite treatment. But very glad I had a chance to try it.
