COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The primary component of our White Oak ale is a 100% barrel aged wheat wine that we affectionately refer to as White Oak Sap. Essentially a summer barley-wine style ale, but made with a wheat heavy grain base, White Oak Sap is aged in used bourbon barrels for nearly a year and comes out rich in flavors of coconut, honey, caramel and vanilla. To compliment the already rich flavors of the beer, weve added cacao nibs and vanilla beans to give this beer the delicate flavor of white chocolatehence the name.
2015 Release = 16.6% ABV. ABV varies by vintage.

On tap at the brewery. Clever name. Deep golden color. Wow. Incredible sweet barrel aroma. Strong barrel aged barley wine character, with something extra... vanilla, a bit lower pH, and je ne sais quos. Very good.
