Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Kinda a slightly wet dry taste with a light flavor of bourbon. Initially very large head had to pour immediately.

Sorry drinking wont make this over 250 characters for the limiter.

Beer tasted pretty good will likely not get it very often though.

750mL bottle poured into a snifter.

(A)- Pours a hazy golden apricot orange color. Some decent white froth and lacing.

(S)- An interesting smell of toast and apricot jam meets honey and oaky booze. Bits of orange citrus and wheat in the background.

(T)- Plenty of orange/apricot citrus meets wheat and biscuit. A splash of honey and oaky booze at the end.

(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. Not overly sweet but a serious punch of citrus for a wheatwine. The heat is a bit forward too, but not off-putting.

(O)- An interesting wheatwine that is quite potent in the citrus realm.
