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

Pale golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is somewhat like a white wine mixed with bourbon. Some vanilla and light fruit. Flavor is vanilla and caramel with a bit of fruitiness. Oak and bourbon in the finish with a slight alcohol burn. Wife: 3.9

dslam (69) - surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
Poured as a very clear yellow liquid with ample white head but slowly got the sediments in there. The carbonation is pretty high and keeps the head. Leaves a tarty wine like taste. I personally donít really like that.

RichTheVillan (3540) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle from Mikkeller Webshop; cloudy golden yellow pour with a thin white head, woody and yeast aroma, taste had some candied fruit, some spice, citrus, bourbon in the backbone.

Dr_Fellini (551) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy golden light brown color with an off white head. Aroma is light, faint hint of vanilla. Flavor is very big for such a light looking beer. Lots of vanilla, coconut, light bourbon. Light to medium in body with a lingering vanilla. Amazingly delicious and deceiving. Hides the alcohol well.

dresden (941) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Golden fizzy with a white head. Aroma of oak, vanilla, caramel. Weird, flavour doesnít match aroma and aims doesnít match appearance. Flavour is white wine, hour alcohol, vanilla, bourbon. Weird. 😮

Bottle. Deep golden colour with a white head. Aroma is white wine, alcohol, sugar, spices. Flavour is white wine, alcohol, hop, yeast, sugar, spices, caramel, vanilla. Full body. Very nice beer.

bigda83 (284) - Jamestown, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a cloudy yellow with a sudsy white head. Aroma is wheat, citrus, bourbon, and caramel. Taste is bourbon, vanilla, caramel, booze, lemon, and some banana. I actually really enjoyed this, although a bit too boozey. This could be also because I decided to drink the entire bottle. I didnít get any of the coconut, but this was a 2013 vintage so it may have fallen off. Still good.

Poured from an oversize bottle. Cloudy straw colour with a generous off-white head. Aroma is barley, yeast, caramel, vanilla, banana, sweet malt, and apricot. Flavour is banana, canned peaches, caramel, vanilla, and mild hops.

Clear golden pour with puffy white head. SweetI aromas of ripe fruits, vanilla, light yeasty spice, sparkling white wine. Sweet, boozy, spicy. Lots of fruit, sweet vanilla. Over the top.

i was really wondering just how the hell this beer was going to be classed, since "party in a bottle!" is not a category. simply put, this beer is amazing. the layers upon layers of aroma and flavor! vanilla from the oak and bourbon. boozy but not at ALL hot. tropical fruit up the wazoo (iím assuming from the white oak) but iíd never had the combo of bourbony goodness, vanilla, caramel, malt, and fruit before. just a great beer! donít know where the hell it came from, but iíd LOVE to find it again."
