White Oak (The Bruery)

11.5 ABV
Purchased at Pangaea Two Brews Café ($9.50/pour) and served in tulip glasses.

His Notes:

This offering from The Bruery is a 50/50 blend of their tasty Belgian gold Mischief and a bourbon barrel-aged wheatwine.  White Oak pours a hazy honey yellow with a minimal marshmallow sauce head, and it smells of pineapple, melon, vanilla, and wheat.  There is caramel sweetness on the first swallow, and the bourbon flavors are expertly blended with the tropical and grainy flavor of the Belgian ale, thanks largely to the use of a lighter wheatwine instead of an obliterating barleywine.  Like all Bruery beers, this is a model of full flavors in perfect balance, with the vanilla-wood bourbon taste and double-digit ABV only coming through on the finish.

  4.5 Toasts
