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.

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, 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 lingers, 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.
