Smuttynose Wheat Wine Ale is a unique hybridization of two well-known beer styles, combining the rich, voluptuous taste of a traditional barleywine with the subtle, tart flavors of an American wheat ale, topped off with a healthy dose of crisp, herbaceous hops.

Enjoyed from a growler in a Rhinegeist snifter. The beefy ale pours a luminous orange with an off white head that dissipates to a thin pool and ring with light lacing. Nose of apricots, moderately strong astringent grain alcohol, sweet malts, and light bittering hops. Flavors are sweet malts on all sides with a heavy grain taste to the rear mingling with bittering hops and a chardonnay like quality. A more pronounced peach and apricot flavor comes through with warmth. A mild bitterness shines through on the aftertaste giving this wheat wine balance. Smooth moderate carbonation makes it easy to drink despite the relatively high alcohol. Very nice.

Cheers
