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

Lots of barrel flavor, easy drinking for 11.5%. Almost candy like sweetness, I probably shouldnt slam the whole thing.

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.

Leafs93 (2252) - 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.

Beerdrinker79 (2175) - 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 wouldnt expect anything less from The Bruery, wonderfully complex!

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

demmbonz (732) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Shared bottle. Light golden color. Highly carbonated. Huge white head. Extremely sweet. Nice vanilla from the bourbon barrel. Gets syrupy as it warms. Boozy and interesting.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2013 On tap and snifter served at Lunar Brewing Co., displaying a hazed, light orange/amber hue, frothy, soft white head foam that promptly reduced to a thick band & film, but left some clingy, web-like lacing on the glass. The aroma started with a little Belgian yeast funk, then a touch of caramel, fruitiness, and some light woodiness. The flavor was estery, with some candy sweetness, grapefruity tartness, and only subdued alcohol presence to me. Effervescent, but just medium bodied. Some nice crispness to the finish. Pleasant, but not overly exciting. Again on tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and found better clarity in the color, more persistence to the head, some cidery taste & tartness in the flavor, a little less effervescence, but noticeable warmth to the alcohol. +.2
