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.

750 from Capones. Pours turbid canary with huge 4-finger fluffy white head that retains for a long time. Nose is oaky and woody malt, citrus, vanilla, spicy florals, hops, juicy and quite delicious on the nose. The taste is oaky, bourbony, with vanilla, hops, spices, florals, and a complex finish that gets a bit hot, but the heat seems to work and be integrated with the various layered flavors and aromas. White oak sap is quite delicious.

Lightly hazy dark golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, caramel, honey, light molasses, vanilla, tropical fruits, light spices and alcohol as well. Taste of citrus, tropical fruits, some grass, maybe a bit of chamomile, wood, and some alcohol in the finish.

Gagne en complexit au fur et mesure quelle se rchauffe. Beaucoup de funk au premier contact, surprenant. Les sucres sont toffs et varis, du caramel la vanille en passant la noix de coco. Les notes de vieillissement en baril sont assez reculs. On est all du ct de la subtilit chez The Bruery.

A lot going on. Super strong, oozes a bourbon flavor despite the light golden color. Light fruity aroma, almost juicy initially- grapefruit? Pineapple? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle; Pour is fairly clear dark golden with an over carbed white head in this glass. It retains well; sticky lacing is present. The nose is vanilla, oak treatment, tropical fruit, and bourbon. Its stick, sweet, earthy ; mango and coconut, vanilla, and some mild oaked notes ; some caramel and bourbon ; it has a fairly nice finish, masking most of the booze ; this is an interesting one - its a bit overwhelming but interesting for sure.
