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.

This is the beer you want to drink on New Years Eve. Champagne like. Smells and tastes of oak, vanilla and coconut. Didn’t pick up any caramel. Good not great

ciocanelu (1329) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 3, 2016
Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma has bourbon but it’s well integrated with the sweet malt and floral notes. Taste starts with malt sweetness, bourbon and continues with floral notes. Quite good but a bit boozy for my taste.

Idiosynkrasie (6419) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 24, 2016
750ml bottle. Clear cognac colour, with small, forthy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Woody, oaky aroma, hints of vanilla, a nuttily touch, hazelnut, nougat, some coconut as well. Taste is all along this line, good balance of rather subtle flavours, a slight predominance of oak.

hman43 (1156) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - JUL 20, 2016
It pours golden-orange with a moderate off white head. The clarity is a bit hazy but clears up quite a bit as it warms. It has strong malt aromas with orange, caramel, wheat, and low aromas of oak and bourbon. It has a rich malt, sweet flavor. It is highlighted by caramel, honey, orange, oak, bourbon, and alcohol. The overall balance is towards the malt. It has a heavy body, not quite chewy, with a moderately high bitterness. It is fairly smooth in spite of the high alcohol content There is also a fair amount of alcohol warming. Overall, this is a malty rich balance beer with a complex blend of fruits that packs a solid alcohol punch, but is fairly smooth.
