It was a good oak aged imperial wit, but wasn't up to what I really expected. Just fell slightly short of great in all areas.

Hazed, sunny amber body beneath a slowly fading smooth head with frothy accents, which creates dots and a few connected islands of lace
A sluggish, somewhat muted aroma opens up with traditional whit esters overlaid with slightly spicy, alcoholic oak barrel, ramped up flavors follow suit with a creamy, subdued grain sweetness accented with melon and light fruit, flowers, and light pepper, spice, and herb on a creamy-smooth, somewhat buttery, lightly carbonated, medium body finishing with a building sweet tact and clearing white pepper, some light earthy notes

interesting wit. heavier body than is normal but it works. not overly sweet but has a fruity sweetness to it that the light belgian yeast doesn’t quite cut through. I’d love to have a non-oaked version to see what exactly the oak imparts. good brew."

Bomber shared by the folks at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy gold with a slight white head. Aroma of subdued citrus zest. Flavor is like a zesty imperial alt. Very smooth and tasty. Oak flows lightly through it.

Hazy very pale, a bit yeasty nose, touch of alcohol. A mess of alcohol, limey-fruity esters and yeastiness. Not getting into this.

On tap at Brewery. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold with thin white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, honey, candy, sweet, hint of oak and alcohol. Flavor is fruity, banana, wheat, cereal, honey, floral, and citrus finish. Slight coriander, finish with a hint of oak. Moderate carbonation, medium body, and a mildly dry finish. A tasty brew, though I didn’t realize it was supposed to be witbier until I looked it up.

What’s not to love about this Oaked Imperial Wit. Drank on draft; this beer is very easy drinking coming in at 8.5%. Not the biggest fan of this style but this beer is brewed to perfection. Notes of clove, orange peel and zest with a beautiful lacing of off-white tan head. Fantastic beer & wish it was year round.
