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

DesertDevil (699) - Arizona, USA - JUN 17, 2013
2013 bottle poured into a Bruery tulip. Odd nose of vanilla, banana, slight shredded coconut, and a bit of sweet bourbon. A cloudy light orange color with a one-inch, long-lasting, fluffy white head. Very sweet and fruity on the first sip, with banana, vanilla, and cookie dough topped by a boozy finish. It tastes somewhat like a bourbon-infused vanilla wafer. A slight tannic note emerges as the beer approaches room temperature. Quite smooth, velvety mouthfeel. A different but thoroughly enjoyable brew.

Ataraxia (540) - California, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Deep golden color with a thin off-white head. Pleasantly mild aroma of oak, vanilla, caramel, and spices. The barrel character was not overpowering, but worked well with the other elements. Taste was sharp, spicy, and just the right amount of sweetness. A crisp finish and very drinkable at 12% abv.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Draft at the pour house. Pours hazy orange with a medium sized white head and some carbonation in the glass. The aroma has a lot of sweetness.. The mischief is winning the aroma. There is some citrus, coconut, vanilla. The taste has a bit of vanilla, oak, tartness, coconut, big carbonation.

jlruthven (612) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Bottle, shared with Michelle. Pours with a light haze, orange-gold, white head. Spots of lacing. Big Belgian nose, with candi sugar, citrus hops, sweet vanilla. Opens up after a while, with the bourbon notes shining through: bit of caramel, effervescent mouthfeel. Sticks around. More interesting than anything else, but pretty good.

poisoneddwarf (2511) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Rating from 6/11/13. 750 ml bottle, 2013 vintage. Pours cloudy cantaloupe with a large white head with excellent retention; leaves some neat lacework. Aroma is strong in oak, vanilla, caramel, bourbon, toasted coconut. Taste is sweet, savory and a little sour with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is creamy, body medium, carbonation average. Super good.

madbeerbaron (19) - madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Lots of barrel flavor, easy drinking for 11.5%. Almost candy like sweetness, I probably shouldn’t slam the whole thing.

3.7
Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Draft at Trappeze Pub Athens, GA. Pours an unclear with white head. Taste is bourbon, grape must, light fruity, tropical notes. Almost barrel aged tripel-like. Light palate, but creamy. Quite nice.

3.6
Leafs93 (2305) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Pours cloudy deep amber with a white head that quickly dissipated into a wisp. Aroma is bourbon, wheat, oak, vanilla, floral and earthy. Taste is sweet with some light bitters. Medium bodied, smooth, light carbonation.

4.3
Beerdrinker79 (2188) - Idaho, USA - JUN 6, 2013
750 ml. bottle- Pours hazy golden with a two finger white head. Aroma is very tart, sweet and fruity, apples and papaya, wheat, subtle oak. The taste is sweet vanilla, bourbon, oak, banana, coconut, caramel, very complex and tasty. Body is medium and carbonation is high. Good, more smooth than your average barleywine, and I wouldn’t expect anything less from The Bruery, wonderfully complex!

3.8
Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - JUN 5, 2013
pours a hazy, orange gold. Two fingers of thick white head. Big clean Belgian yeast note, with that Bruery ’house’ tone. A nice bourbon vanilla undertone to the aroma. Big bourbon flavor, think alcohol heat, oak vanilla etc. but the right before it becomes abrasive the Belgian strong notes cut in and take control. A nice finishing fruity note. This is very complex
