12oz chalice, at the Underground Bar and Grill, apparently the only place in Alberta with this on-tap right now. Served on an Evil Twin coaster, how ironically appropriate as this is apparently a collaboration between Mikkeller and the venerable Three Floyds brewery in Indiana.

This beer appears a very cloudy, dark browned apricot hue, with one thick finger of foamy, bubbly beige head, which leaves a nice randomly dense wall of honeycombed lace around the glass as it evenly peels away.

It smells of sweet, sugary caramel/toffee malt, a touch of grainy astringency, simmering ripe drupe fruit, earthy, leafy hops, and a soft perfumed alcohol twinge. The taste is musty, grainy, and sweet wheat malt, strong subsidiary caramel notes, apple and pear peel, a burgeoning fleshy citrus fruitiness, a bit of black tea tannin, and leafy, weedy hops. A low-key, circling booziness seems poised to strike at any moment.

The bubbles are actually a tad frothy, and well structured, the body a sturdy medium weight, tending to full at times, and a bit too edgy from hop and alcohol alike to be deemed all that smooth. It finishes well off-dry, the grainy, almost dank wheat malt pulling away from most things sweet, a bit of apple mush fruitiness lingering, and the heat does well to only lurk and prick, as opposed to coming out in force.

A decent wheatwine, the caveat being that I have relatively few comparisons to draw for it, especially in Alberta. Not too sweet, and complex enough, with a well-tempered elevated booziness. Nice to have the opportunity to try, though I would prefer the next time be free of 'entry' tickets.

On-tap. ½ pt Pilsner glass. Enjoyed on agt´12. Reddish deep amber color & chill hazy appearance. Tan, creamy & lasting crown. Caramel toasted malt, ripe fig, sugar, alcohol aromas & bready hues. Toasted malts & resiny hops at first sip with brandy notes. Sharp & rough hoppiness. Full body. Soft carbonation. Oily texture. Dry bitter finish with fruity touch. Long woody aftertaste. No harsh but warming ABV.
