look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a 750 to a champagne glass, because that's what I have right now.
A- A slightly hazy golden color, with a thin white head.
S- Right off the bat is a ton of bourbon, caramel and vanilla. lightly sugary sweet gummy bears dance with a hint of smokey maple. warm sugary butter tiptoes it's way to the finish.
T- Bourbon, caramel and vanilla are the backbone to this beer, and show themselves throughout. Buttered rum comes to mind. A perfect taste for the winter.
M-Moderate carbonation, and a very smooth feel. The booze is definitely present, and is not a bad thing.
O-Excellent brew from one of my favorite breweries. This is a slow drinker, and a perfect winter release. I bought two bottles, and am looking forward to this aged.

4.28/5 rDev +2.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
A- Pours a golden amber, with a small off-white head that recedes to a ring around the glass. Moderate lacing.
S- Not an intense nose, but sweet caramel and maple bourbon barrel certainly come through, with hints of lighter fruits such as green apple and pear. Reminiscent of a caramel covered green apple.
T- Estery green apple, along with quite a bit of caramel, maple, alcohol and spice on the finish. Minor hints of wood. Certainly a sweet beer on the first part of the sip, but the yeasty spiciness and alcohol on the finish balance it off.
M- Full bodied and oily, with a bit of effervescence from the carbonation. Decently smooth, and a bit of alcohol on the finish.
O- An enjoyable beer. The maple bourbon barrels, while not intense, certainly make the beer. They add a bit more sweetness and create a unique twist to this Wheatwine.
