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.

Honey colored pour with a white head. Spotty lacing. Aroma is candied fruit, vanilla, spice, and some booze. Taste is vanilla, overripe pineapple, caramel, and some wood. On the sweeter side. Medium body.

Cavie (4305) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 7, 2016
Tap at Kool Keg. Slightly hazy amber color. Gentle white head. Interesting aroma. Vanilla and oak for sure. Bourbon can be picked up, with an odd mix of sweet and toasted notes. Flavor is fairly sweet, chocolate and vanilla notes. Wood and bourbon. Dry toasted notes with coconut? Almost a touch sour, but not quite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Barreras (1560) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Pours a light orange color with a fruit aroma. Taste is citrus, vanilla, and a light floral flavor throughout the beer. The alcohol is very evident in the aftertaste. I faintly could taste the sweetness of the caramel on the palate after the swallow. A dry finish to this beer with an alcohol content that hits you once the glass is dry.

On tap at Antenna America though they also had it in bottles. The Bruery White Oak 11.5% BA 650 yen for a snifter and this beer knocked me on my ass. Anyways, it poured a beautiful orange gold with a thin head of beige foam. Huge wine plum and rich fruity malt aroma. Fairly full bodied, the flavor is richly oaky vanilla goodness.with notes of fruits (plums/raisins), caramel, oak and chewy wheat. Good stuff.

Pours a bright rust orange with thick white head. A citrus and oaky aroma. A complex but excellent beer with a mix of flavors: wheat, yeast, caramel, citrus, malts, dark alcohol, and other fruits. A dry and alcohol aftertaste.

Bottle shared, thanks Jon. Lovely tartness, even more pastry-like, gentle fruity esters and notes of vanilla and marshmallow, bit of spice, smooth and dry on the finish. Excellent stuff, quite a unique and complex blend of flavors.

Poured into a taster showing lightly filtered slightly dry straw yellow with half a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows a mix of citric tart and vanilla notes. Strong intensity and a good balance. The palate is moderately carbonated with a light body. Slight residual sweetness, light vanilla throughout, no alcohol spiciness until the finish despite the high ABV. The flavors on the finish show clean bourbon oak and smoke.
