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.

A: pours like a typical murky golden wheat beer with about 1 fingers worth of head formation and moderate lacing and decent carbonation.

S: big sweet mixture of wheat and caramel right up front, with subtle touches of fruits, apricot, lemon zest, and slight barnyard funk as well. i fin d this resembling more of a saison, and i like the nose.

T: similar to the nose, with sweet caramel, wheat, and subtle fruits. there's a nice vanilla cream finish that really helps pull this brew together. the bourbon qualities lie in the background, expanding it's complexity, but I'm not finding the alcohol heat to be as bold as most people mention. nicely balanced.

M: on the lighter side of medium bodied, nice carbonation, and leaves a slight saison-like quality on the palate (tropical fruits, slight funk)

O: i think that this is a solid brew all the way around. it has a nice complexity and is nicely balanced. definitely worthy of a try and it would be great as the weather continues to warm up.
