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.

3.88/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

750ml bottle poured into tulip 2/7/13

A murky orange liquid with enough clarity to see lots of little bubbles feeding a large three finger off white foam that quickly falls to a pinky's width leaving lots of random lace

S quite sweet and boozy, pear, apple juice, apricot, vanilla, not a massive barrel presence but I do get some bourbon and strangely enough some white vinous notes, Belgian yeast wasn't expected and I'm getting some wheaty dry cereal that's not as surprising

T candied pineapple and even more booze and vanilla then the nose, seems just a little rough though with some citric hops shinning through here and there, a little wood that wasn't really there on the nose, some maple syrup and brown sugar as it warms

M leaning towards full, enough bubbles to give it some life, slight tannins and still a little hot, maple cereal lingers on the finish

O something different and not at all what I was expecting, would benefit from some age as shes still a little hot, interesting take on a wheat-wine

one of those beers that I liked but doubt I'll be dropping the cash to age a bottle or two even though I think it would improve drastically. I'm stoked to get The Bruery here in Alberta but so far I'm overspending.
