BEER INFO

Style: Wheatwine

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 13.80%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
ABV varies by batch.

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.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass and shared with friends.
Thanks to pushkinwow for the bottle!
2013 Vintage, poured 4/2014

Pours clear and golden color with minimal head and no lacing. The nose is light but heavy on sweet malt, caramel, toffee, vanilla and hot alcohol. The taste is very similar, a cloying mix of vanilla, caramel and overly sweet malt. It has a heavy body and minimal carbonation making it oily, silky and thick. Overall, an interesting brew that was just to sweet and unbalanced for me.
