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.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours hazy from the bomber. A massive head develops with dark yellow liquid underlying the white head. Decent lace here.
Smell is malt, oak, hops, spices and vanilla. Well balanced.
Taste is very well balanced with notes of malt, oak, spice(pepper), hops, vanilla and orange.
Tart up front getting smoother late/ Warming throughout. Full-bodied. Good though the aged part doesn't really seem to be too prevalent. The oak is nice, not overpowering like is some beers but a solid partner to the other flavors. Very nice overall and certainly better after it warms.
