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, we’ve added cacao nibs and vanilla beans to give this beer the delicate flavor of white chocolate…hence the name.
2015 Release = 16.6% ABV. ABV varies by vintage.

reebtogi (6378) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 4, 2017
750ml capped bottle pours a pale amber color with 2 fingers of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate and vanilla with some bourbon and alcohol notes. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with the vanilla and a mild spicy bitterness finishing with bourbon and an alcohol burn. Medium to full bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a nicely crafted brew that is well balanced and unique to the style. Recommended.

Stoned99 (1673) - St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2017
750ml bottle shared with Jo and Seb. Nov 19 2015 bottle. Thanks Jo. Aroma: big vanilla nose, caramel,. Just feel like smelling my daughter’s cake. Lots of alcohol in there too and some bourbon. App: clear light red just like a scotch. Taste and palate: full body, liquoreux, medium sweetness, alcohol finish. Overall: well. This is a fine digestive. I’m not a digestive guy though. It’s interesting to see all these flavors in a barley wine. Good but just a small glass, just like a digestive.
