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.

4.35/5  rDev +12.4%

Bottle 2013 vintage at 50 degrees into large snifter
Aroma of fresh bread
Head large (5 cm), off white, frothy, slowly diminishing to 4 mm ring and 2 mm layer.
Lacing poor, some medium islands which eventually slide back into the ring
Body medium yellow, cloudy (Oops – I got the sediment, mea culpa)
Flavor of vanillin from the oak, a little bready, a little tart with a light hop bitter finish; no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate full, creamy, lively carbonation

Appearance 4, Aroma 4.25, Flavor 4.5, Palate 4.25, Overall 4.25. Final weighted score: 4.35
This is an interesting beer style. The breadiness in both the aroma and flavor is new to me as a desirable characteristic but works well in this beer. The alcohol is very well hidden but slowly sneaks up. This is the first time I’ve tried it but it won’t be the last.
