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 - lots of head (may have been over-carbonated because i poured very slowly), light brown, slightly more clear than cloudy

S - smells sweet, almost like a saison. bourbon smell is prominent

T - tastes like a saison too. can definitely taste the alcohol. bourbon flavor is very noticeable. very sweet, slightly fruity. Tastes better warmer.

M - crisp, flows nicely

O - a very good beer, but at $16 a bottle i probably will not buy it again.
