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 Very light with a nice little head; minimal lacing; looked a lot like a mimosa.
S Light fruit--it smelled very much like a dry chardonnay with a slight wheaty, yeasty nose
T Tastes much like the smell--it reminded me more of a chardonnay than a beer
M Bubbly and light--airy--again, less like beer than chardonnay
O Not bad, but I more than likely would not go out of my way to buy this again

Picked up bottle on clearance that was approaching best buy date. Great looking beer, not quite as murky as a wheat with good head that does not stick around long. Smell is awesome, hard to describe but wonderful. Taste was very interesting, could not compare it to anything. The boozy taste sticks around a little long from a guy who likes very big beers. Definitely more of a sipper, but a very good one with interesting taste. Very much enjoyed the beer and definitely worth trying as it is a bit unique
