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.

Co tu się dzieje. Bourbon, wanilia, opiekany kokos, czekolada, jakieś figi, melasa... Cudownie bogate, wybitne piwo. Po ogrzaniu totalnie wychodzi świetna, mleczna czekolada.

sebletitje (9553) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 15, 2016
75cl anno 2014 via trade, split with Tomaz. Could not finish it. Orange col blanc retombant vite. Arôme de vanilla et un léger bouquet de chocolat et e Broubon magnifié par le boisé et encore l’effet alcool. Le tout garde une approche proche des wheat wine. Palais est réchauffant, alcool bien là, réchauffant voire un peu over the top. Amertume houblonnée perce en find e bouche, cacao, chaleur est là, sucre résiduel et Bourbon, forte impression de corn sugar pour booster le tout.

Bottle 0.75l at Ratebeer Belgian Summer Gathering 2016 Evergem, Belgium. 03.09.2016. Thanks Klaas for hosting and RB guys for sharing today’s beers. Pour it hazy brown color with small white head. Aroma vanilla, chocolate, some coconut. Taste sweet crazy vanilla kick, woody, pinch of smoke, clove, dark chocolate in the middle, coffee also a pinch, too much sweet sugary at the end, maybe I’m not in this mood right now, full body, sticky, soft carbonation, long finish. Interesting!

Zlotta (2365) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2016 Sampled from 0.75 l bottle at RBBSG 2016 in Evergem. Hazy, orangeish amber with a white head. Sweetish, sourish, malty aroma of lots of white chocolate, some coffee, vanilla and a touch of peach. Sweetish, malty, quite sour taste of lots of white chocolate, coffee, hazelnut and vanilla, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, quite sour finish. Medium body, slightly effervescent and rather astringent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very nice!
