Bright sunburst color. Aromas and flavors of honeyed cherry compote, pencil shavings, sweet pickle relish, and bbq wood smoke with a round, tart, frothy, sourish medium-to-full body and a tingling, stimulating, medium-long sour apple and quince, lime vinaigrette on greens, and nuts finish. A playfully smoky and sour wood accented ale that will be versatile.

The category of wood-aged beer represents a diverse range of ale and lager styles that have been aged in neutral wood. These beers commonly range between 6-8% in alcohol with further variations depending on the interpretation of the style. These beers are characterized by wood-influenced flavors of vanilla, caramel, toast and coconut in addition to flavors and aromas of the base style. The overall character of the final beer may also included acetic, lactic or Brettanomyces flavors and aromas resultant of the barrel. A wide variety of base beer styles may be wood-aged for an additional level of complexity, although wood-aged versions of darker or more alcoholic styles are among the more common examples. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Innis & Gunn Original Oak-Aged Beer, Stone OAKED Arrogant Bastard Ale and Great Divide Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout.
