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.

Clear golden, minimal white head. Sweet fruity grape, raisins. A bit of oak. Honey. No bitterness, very sweet, hint of funk. Medium body, slightly oily. Long finish. Reasonably hot alcohol. Pretty great. Rated when the Cubs won the World Series.

heman (776) - Tychy, POLAND - OCT 27, 2016
Aromat jest intensywny, słodki. Nuty zapachowe w głwnej mierze tworzą tutaj suszone owoce: figi, daktyle, morele i odrobina karmelu. W smaku piwo jest pełne, gęste i bardzo słodowe. Melasa miesza się z suszem owocowym, gdzieś tam w tle majaczy odrobina wędzonych owocw. Wpływ leżakowania w beczce jest bardzo wyraźny i doskonale uzupełnia profil piwa - nuty wanilii i kokosa są uwypuklone, i wyczuć je można w pierwszej linii z innymi składowymi smaku. Na finiszu doszukać się można subtelnego posmaku kojarzącego się z suszonym drewnem, a całość zamyka raczej alkoholowa goryczka. Alkohol choć wyczuwalny jest ułożony i nie drażni.

Bouche : trs ronde de barley wine trs doux, un caramel avec de belles notes de pommes/poires. Lgrement vanille et cannelle. Un fond bourbon tout en subtilit qui anobli et relve tout.

onceblind (8177) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 7, 2016
Slightly murky golden with a sticky white head. Biiiig nose of oak, maple, very earthy leafiness, and a certain dark Belgian malty booziness. Smooth body with a large boozy Barleywine tone thats malty, slightly fruity, loads of smooth dark oak, white grape, light citrus, more wood, and a somewhat smooth but boozy finish. Really pleasant. Rating number 7400!

thewolf (12270) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2016
Bottle, bought @Mikkeller Webshop. Pours light hazy amber with a small, fizzy White film head. Aroma has lots of oak, heavy sweetness, Vanilla, sticky malts and a bit of wet dog. Medium carbonation, fine dry and light oily mouthfeel. Flavour is very sweet, lots of Bourbon character, vinious, oak, chewy malts. A slight burning alcohol sensation in the end. Unimpressive.

muzzlehatch (4901) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2016
750 ml bottle from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI, served at cellar temp in a Maudite glass. Light-to-medium cloudy amber-gold - not exactly what I usually expect in this style- topped by quite a large smooth snowy head that decays slowly...nose initially citric and acidic, strongly yeasty (sourdough and cookie dough), more reminiscent of a sour ale or perhaps a saison (as acerbic herbal tones of thyme and oregano show up) than anything else; with a few minutes time in the glass, a more typical vinous and caramel-malt characteristic makes itself known, along with expected banana notes...body is also fairly acidic, lightly tart, moderately to strongly sweet with a strong yeasty character throughout; alcohol is present but never overwhelming...finish is peppery and a bit drier, slightly woody/toasty...body is full, heavily carbonated. This is pretty decent though its not the kind of thing I want often, and the 750 ml bottle is a negative as far as Im concerned - good for a group but not for solo drinking; this level of tartness plus high alcohol is a challenge.
