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

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - APR 3, 2012
750ml bottle from fear025. Hazy orange/yellow with a thick, foamy off white head. Aroma of fruity esters, sugar, light caramel and a hint of vanilla/oak. Flavor is sweet and malty with lots of spicy/earthy yeast qualities, alcohol and some dry wood. Medium body with prickly carbonation and a dry, alcoholic finish. This is a unique beer, lots of yeast flavors, sweet malt and alcohol, it all blends great though. Thanks Jay for another gem!

Interesting beer. The flavors are very strong and come through much more vibrantly than I expected. Aroma is amazing. The coconut taste that come though is a bit strong for my palate but it is still an enjoyable sipper.

DalzAle (2020) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle. Clear golden pour, medium amount of carbonation and a strong coconut and vanilla aroma. Flavor was also similar to the smell (vanilla, coconut) and then slightly strong and boozy. Seemed to be a little to high in alcohol to be a stellar beer, wish it was about 8% vs. 12%.

Nice beer that appears like a belgian tripel. Smells of oak, bananas and citrus and a little funky. Taste is clove bourbon, oak, bananas, citrus and malt. Very nice beer overall. Glad I got to try this once retired beer!

Draft at the bruery provisions. Slightly hazy amber pour with a white head. Sweet malts, caramel, vanilla, oak, wheat, dried fruit, and warming alcohol heat. Too sweet and boozy for my taste.

Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is wheat, light bourbon and vanilla. Taste is sweet with equal parts wheat beer and bourbon. Tastes better than I described. Full bodied and sticky. A little alcohol warmth. Good stuff.
