Hey y'all

I made some strawberry wine with both french and american oak chips. The wine is in the bottle and I saved the oak chips to use in .... something-er-ather. Yesterday I thought about using them in a beer and was curious if anyone had a suggested style that they thought the strawberry oak chips might go with?

maybe a porter? maybe a darker brown?
something a bit lighter?

what do you think?

My inclination would be a Belgian... light enough that the strawberry and wine fit in and aren't overpowered, and complex enough that the oak isn't out of place.
