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 bit sour for my taste, but still drinkable.

Kinda a slightly wet dry taste with a light flavor of bourbon. Initially very large head had to pour immediately.

Sorry drinking wont make this over 250 characters for the limiter.

Beer tasted pretty good will likely not get it very often though.
