What color caulk do I use here? Wood tone, clear or white?

I have a hand hewn beam going across my kitchen wall. Because of the nature of hand hewn beams, there is a gap in between the backsplash and the beam (the beam is not perfectly flat/straight).

The contractors who installed the backsplash used clear caulk everywhere else but I thought the high sheen would be distracting in between the beam and the backsplash as the gap is somewhat large in spots (largest width is 1/4 in).

Should I use wood tone, clear or white caulk (the countertop is off-white)? Alternatively, I could just leave the gap as is. I’m nervous the caulk will be an eye sore.

What would you do?
