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.

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.

750mL bottle poured into a snifter.

(A)- Pours a hazy golden apricot orange color. Some decent white froth and lacing.

(S)- An interesting smell of toast and apricot jam meets honey and oaky booze. Bits of orange citrus and wheat in the background.

(T)- Plenty of orange/apricot citrus meets wheat and biscuit. A splash of honey and oaky booze at the end.

(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. Not overly sweet but a serious punch of citrus for a wheatwine. The heat is a bit forward too, but not off-putting.

(O)- An interesting wheatwine that is quite potent in the citrus realm.
