COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Early summer, this barrel aged wheat wine is coming out very nicely (12% ABV) White Oak is a blended beer-- 50% wheatwine aged in Bourbon barrels (we call it "White Oak Sap"), and 50% Mischief (our Golden Strong Ale). Vivid caramel, coconut and vanilla flavors blanketed in a crisp yet robust wheat ale, White Oak is an exercise of balance.
2012 vintage - 11.5% abv

JStax (4996) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Pours from a 750 ml bottle. Pours a translucent, bubbly copper with a thicker white head of foam. The head dissipates down to nothing in a short amount of time. Aroma is fairly boozy with the bready wheaty notes coming through in the backend. Tastes is of vanilla, coconut, wheat, barrel, banana. Pretty complex stuff. For as big as this beer is, the alcohol burn is pretty easygoing.

Bottle at home. Pour is hazy orange with a big white head and great lacing. Woody, oaky, light banana, somewhat citrusy, a touch of caramel, vanilla, toffee, floral, and grassy aroma. Taste is banana, sweet vanilla, a touch of coconut, somewhat wheaty, dark fruits, red licorice, rice, and a touch of booze on the backend. Sticky mouthfeel with medium carbonation. This bottle has a little over a year on it, but is still a bit hot. I think the time has done it some justice, however, it could definitely use a little more time. Not a bad wheat wine, but not my favorite.

lusikka (7680) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 26, 2013
750 ml bottle @ WPBF 2013.
Pours a cloudy dark golden colour with a white head. Aroma is rather complex with caramel malts, white wine and some dried apricot. Flavour is rather complex with caramel malts, white wine, grassy hops, wood and banana. Bourbon smoothens the taste nicely. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and a citrusy, slightly sweet and white wine dry finish. Great stuff!

laiti (7981) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 26, 2013
75 cl bottle (11,5%) @ wPBF
Aroma feels quite Belgian with soapy citrus and acidic notes typical to white wine. Flavour has strong white wine notes, some citrus and apricot. Also some gluey notes. Way too much white wine for me here.

dwyerpg (5498) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 22, 2013
Smells like wheat mixed with a moscato. A cloudy orange-yeallow, this is nice. The first sip is creamy and a bit sweet. The strength i snoticeable and is the biggest detractor to the beer as I feel a whole bottle could give me a headache.

On tap at Choice City. Orange and cloudy with a white head. The aroma is wheat malts, oak, caramel, vanilla and alcohol. Medium body with a creamy soft feel. Incredibly smooth and balanced flavor hides the alcohol. Similar to the aroma with light coconut. Very nice.

daje (3795) - NORWAY - APR 16, 2013
Bottle shared at Øltorget Mathallen, march 8th 2013. one of a kind for me, different to any other beer I’ve had. It has a hazy dark gold en body with a huge white head. Aroma of citrus, wheat, banana, vanilla and bourbon. Works a lot better than one might think. Taste starts acidic, has a strong caramel and banana presence, with orange, roasted malt and wheat. Quite complex, I’m sure there’s stuff going on here passing me by too. Finish is fruity, banana, and vanilla.
