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

Rather dry, very bitter with lots of astringent tannins. Lots of pear and apple, some honey. Finish is extremely harsh, puckering tannins, oaky and bitter.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2010
750ml bottle from hophead22... Pours amedium orange brown with a medium white head... Aroma is of full of yeasty with sweeter fruit overall with sacharine honey notes. Not too much barrel in the nose... Flavors are hugely vanilla and barrel forward with an abundance of effervescence with a good deal of booze in the aftermath. Way too lively and boozy at the same time and overly barreled. Just an odd cbination in totality.

ElDuderino (183) - Hyde Park, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 18, 2010
Tasting at Ja-Julios with Patrick. Pours a bright golden body with a tall pure white head. Nose of sweet sugar and chewy malts, like candy corn stirred into oatmeal. The body is hot, lots of alcohol heat and a light active mouth feel. Flavors were of light sweet malts, a little dry wood flavor, some orange zest and dry hay or grass. For 12 % it was very thin and light and the flavors matched perfectly. Not the most drinkable beer, but nicely balanced and complex.

Thanks Ryan for sharing this 750ml bottle! Poured a medium and hazy amberish color with an averaged sized head. Initial aromas of all apples. Warmed up to coconut, vanilla, some woodiness, and some fruitiness. Tastes of apples, coconut, vanilla, woody, wheatiness, and caramel.
