Notes/Commercial Description:
The primary component of our "White Oak" ale is a 100% barrel aged wheat wine that we affectionately refer to as "White Oak Sap." Essentially a "summer" barley-wine style ale, but made with a wheat heavy grain base, White Oak Sap is aged in used bourbon barrels for nearly a year and comes out rich in flavors of coconut, honey, caramel and vanilla. To compliment the already rich flavors of the beer, we've added cacao nibs and vanilla beans to give this beer the delicate flavor of white chocolate...hence the name.

Amazing brew, without a doubt one of my fav from The Bruery (though I just picked up the Reserve Society membership, so god knows what tasty brew is awaiting me in 2014.

For tonight I got mine from a bottle that came as a gift from my boss, served in a Bruery branded tulip. 2013. My pallet is not so refined as others, so forgive the generic and/or weird descriptions:

Pours a beautiful orangish-yellow color, with just a little bit of head. Yeast chunks are present.

I taste sweet fruit, and of course vanilla beans. Literally tastes like white chocolate covered raisins. What strikes me more is what I DON'T taste, and that's alcohol - it's there if you look for it, but it's impressive none-the-less for something that is 14.75% abv.

Something I wish I could drink every night, but that's kind of stuff is how you end up on A&E's Intervention
