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

Cloudy dull amber color. Bourbon and some medicine aroma. Sweet mouthfeel, boozy, vanilla, no complexity, just boozy.
Underwhelming.

SebBrews (216) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - DEC 2, 2017
Pours clear amber with medium thick, rapidly disappearing, off-white head. Aroma is bourbon, oak barrels, honey, caramel. Taste is sweet malts with bourbon upfront. Notes of Christmas Stollen, caramel, spices, fruity esters, dried dark fruits. Sticky texture, low carbonation, full bodied. It tastea like a hybrid between an American barleywine and a Beligian Trippel. Nevertheless, very good.

alteregoo (1792) - Kalisz, POLAND - SEP 17, 2017
Piana obfita, niezbyt jednak trwała, barwa jasno bursztynowa, opalizująca. W aromacie sporo świeżego kokosa, brzoskwinie, gruszki, miód, a w tle wanilia... Smak dość słodki, ale nie ulepkowaty, zdecydowanie bardziej wanilinowy niż w zapachu, są rodzynki, morele, białe winogrona, sporo miodu i bourbona. Jest też niewielka kwaskowość, budząca skojarzenia z tanim, półsłodkim białym winem. Niska, ziołowa goryczka, niskie do średniego wysycenie. W odbiorze półpełne, likierowe, nieco mdłe.


Ładny, beczkowo estrowy, ale znacznie mniej intensywny niż w Mash zapach, fajna słodycz i wanilina w smaku - to zdecydowanie na plus (są nawet delikatne skojarzenia z cudownym T.H.R.E.E od Struise). Na minus niezbyt przyjemne, miodowe utlenienie i nutki taniego, białego wina.

GuideDogSaint (1776) - Xiamen, CHINA - JUN 11, 2017
Sample from a 750ml bottle marked as 12.5% at True Bearing Alehouse, Xiamen. Pours hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma of bourbon and fudge with some fruit, white wine and bread. Sweet finish. Ok but not really my thing with the dominating bourbon.
