750ml bottle info a snifter

A: Pours hazy golden yellow with a white head that fades to a ring and leaves some lacing on the glass.

S: The nose is full of sweet wheat and vanilla along with some hops and a bit of toffee.

T: The taste follows the nose with maybe a touch more hops but the barrel is not as prevalent as I'd expect.

M: Feel is about par for the style. Medium bodied and crisp.

O: Was really looking forward to this one and while it was tasty I was expecting a bit more.

Reviewed from notes from our Town Hall tasting. 2012 vintage poured from a750ml bottle. Amber in color with a thin frothy head to it. Nice lacing to it.

The barrel flavors are pretty reserved in it. I get more of a hoppy bitterness to it with the wheat malts playing a pretty big role as well. I get some notes of apricots to it as well. It's a decent enough smelling wheat wine but the barrel aging didn't seem to add anything besides some brown sugar sweetness, which didn't seem to compliment the wheat malts all that well.

I get a little more of a oak and vanilla out of the barrel aging in the taste. Wheat malts are bold and good for the style. The finish thankfully brings out some bitter hops helping to balance it out a little. The barrel aging was disappointing in it though.

The mouthfeel was on the thinner side with moderate carbonation. Overall, it was somewhat of a disappointing beer given that I had high expectations. The barrel flavor was very light and what was there just didn't compliment the wheat malts very well. The sweetness of the bourbon and wheat malts together just didn't work all that well for me. It was a decent beer, but not an outstanding one.

The pour is a hazed orange color with an off-white head. Sweet caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and honey. Good bourbon aroma, plenty of vanilla, and some oak. Actually a touch of hops in the background. Sweet sugar/malt flavors dominate. Heavy on the caramel, toffee, and brown sugar. As with the nose, lots of bourbon and vanilla with a light oak flavor.

Bottle shared by Andrew. Thanks!

A: Orangish yellow with a fizzy white head. Nice color.

S: A blast of bourbon and alcohol fumes. Brown sugar blends with vanilla and caramel.

T: Harsh and boozy. It makes my mouth hurt. Barrel phenolics, vanilla, caramel, bourbon, and more booze. Moderate earthy bitterness. Brash and boozy finish.

M: Medium body with upper low carbonation. Thin and hot.

Overall: Some nice barrel notes but pretty harsh and boozy. A nice follow-up to an infected bottle of Czar Jack.
