COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A pale wort made from British Maris Otter is boiled for 12 hours to provide Ølfabrikken Oakwine with an deep sweet caramel flavor. The fermentation is based on our Vinter Ale and done with both an American and Belgian yeast, which together with Simcoe hops, present itself with a strong fruity aroma of apples and kaki. A long maturation on oak provides notes of vanilla.
Ølfabrikken Oakwine is, of course, unpasteurized, unfiltered and cask conditioned like all of our beers. Only available on tap.
