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.

Aroma of sweet cherry, apple and other tart fruit. {Pours amber with not much head. Taste is slight bourbon with spicy ginger and tart fruits. It’s neat but definitely lacking something.

750ml bottle from Alen. Hazy pale amber with a creamy white head that settles down to a thin head. Bourbon is sharp and overwhelming without much balance, some spice, yeast, wheat coriander and orange peel. Very alcoholic - almost evaporates on the palate, somewhat sweet, little thin, lots of fruit with apricot at the forefront. I think this might have been ok with a few years to settle but not a fan at this point in time.

Hazy amber beer. Thick frothy white head. Sourish and sherbetty orange nose. Light palate, quite dry and a little frothy. Orange liquer, somewhat Grand Marnier like and well blended with dry wheaty spice and some black pepper. Finishes with more orange liquer and a little bitterness in the aftertaste.

750 from Capone’s. 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 complexité au fur et à mesure qu’elle se réchauffe. Beaucoup de funk au premier contact, surprenant. Les sucres sont étoffés et variés, du caramel à la vanille en passant la noix de coco. Les notes de vieillissement en baril sont assez reculés. On est allé du côté de la subtilité 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

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Bottle: Pours a hazy golden color with a medium frothy off-white head that is mostly lasting. Yeasty fruit aroma has hints of caramel and vanilla. Flavor is yeasty and sweet with hints of vanilla and a delicious bourbon presence in the creamy dry finish. Well balanced! $15.49/bottle here in Florida :(
