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.

2013 release. Hazy orange in appearance. Over one finger of white foam with good retention. A few streaks of lacing. Aroma contains aspects of both component beers. There's a vague phenolic Belgian yeast presence. Tart, yet sweet fruity note... Apricot maybe. A little bit of booze.

Interesting melange of flavors... A little bit of tartness melded with sweetness. A bit of an alcohol note on the finish. Vanilla and oak from the barrel-aged wheat wine component come through. They don't come together as harmoniously in a pale beer like they do in a rich, dark one.

Interesting take on a strong pale ale, sort of like a tripel.
