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.

Bottled. A hazy golden beer with an off-white head. The aroma has notes of lemons, straw, and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of coconut, straw, alchohol, vanilla, malt, and wheat, leading to a smooth alcoholic finish.

The caramel, coconut, and vanilla shined through in this beer and you could pick it all up. Mixed in with the wheat this makes a fantastic beer. I cannot say enough about this brew and Iím now on the hunt to find more bottles.

Pulled this out of my cellar. Think I have had it since 2010 or so. Big bourbon nose balanced by a nutty aroma. Taste is a mix of caramel, bourbon and coconut with a streak of apple cider which really mix well. Slight burn in the throat. I think it has aged well.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Golden yellow body, with a lively, foamy white head. Lice lacing and retention. S: Light bourbon notes contribute a vanilla-oak character. Some slight grainy aromas and a soft bready sweetness. Some spice as well. T: A really intriguing flavor profile. For starters, the bourbon addition is delicate and subtle. It is also messes with the mind because you donít expect this out of a beer that looks this way. Refined oak and vanilla play off of the caramel malt and restrained grainy body. Some light hop bitterness and clove round out a truly complex brew. M: Slightly more carbonated than Iíd like. The light body and smooth flavorings do combine for a pleasant mouthfeel. O: Not what I was expecting... in a very good way. This was a nice treat to enjoy.

The beer pours a medium honey gold with a white head. The head is very nice, rising several fingers and providing great retention and lacing. The head is very thick and creamy. The aroma is pretty light, lots of wheat and clove. I was expecting some wood or bourbon but got noone of it. AFter the beer warms up and tasting you start to get a little bourbon in the aroma. The taste starts our like a normal wheat kind of sweet then your are hit of a huge amount of flavor. Its very sweet vanilla and coconut then a ton of bourbon. My one complaint is that the beer is a light in texture with an unremarkable finsih. The drinkability is off the chart especially at 11abv, donít taste any of it. I didnít have much hope for this before I tried, but after iím floored. This beer is complex, totally drinkable, and very unique. Get a hold of this if you can.

brokensail (15269) - San Leandro, California, USA - MAR 20, 2011
A: The beer pours a cloudy golden orange color with a tall head, white in color. S: Fairly phenolic with a lot of pepper notes and a fair bit of alcohol. Sweet light fruits such as pears, apples, and bananas. Sugar, honey, and pale malts provide what amounts to a substantial sweetness. Some vanilla, but not all that much of the bourbon. T: The flavor is perhaps a bit too intense for me. Strong alcohol notes, though not much of the bourbon barrel. Honey and sugar sweetness along with some more of the light fruit notes. White pepper provides a bit more bite/heat. M: Medium to full in body with a moderate carbonation. O: A bit too strong in the booze department for me. Interesting beer, but not something Iíd care to drink a lot of.

Reviewed from notes. Thanks to Max for bringing this bottle back from California. Pours a light caramel color with a nice, light off white head and a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose really brings nice notes forward and I really like the oak characteristics. Some light bread notes as well. The taste and mouthfeel combine quite well, bringing down some really nice, creamy oak as well as light caramel and bread. Really digging the mouthfeel. Drinks quite well overall and was a nice treat. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-23-2010
