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.

750 ml bottle poured into a Gouden Carolus chalice. Thanks Cheesemoose! White, frothy head, high retention on a hazy golden body. Soapy, sudsy lacing, sticky. Aroma includes sweet fruits, banana, percimmon, a pleasant tartness and a hint of vanilla. Taste includes candi sugar, slight tartness, slight alcohol, some coconut as advertised. All the flavored work well together and the beer is delicious and highly drinkable for a high abv.

Bomber in to Bruery snifter

A - pours a hazy orange-straw color with active bubbly carbonation; significant white head present that dissipates a bit from a full inch to a half inch after settling; minimal lacing

S - Belgian sugars up front; oak; coconut; vanilla; just a hint of bourbon; some pineapple notes

T - Belgian sugars; bourbon and caramel; vanilla; coconut; wood; wheat

M - this beer is a little overly carbonated...it drinks like a sugary champagne; it's sweet though and pleasant towards the back-end; medium-bodied and hiding that 11.5 really well; really crisp

O - the complexity of the flavors is tasty; the mouthfeel isn't spectacular, at least not up-front; I dig what's going on here with all the flavor, but having recently had WC, this falls short...and I hate to compare the two, but I believe the base beers are the same; despite all that, this is a tasty beer with the Belgian sugars and other flavors coming through nicely.
