Pours a murky amber body with copper hues and only the faintest of off white heads that leaves almost no lacing to speak of even after a vigorous pour.
The aromas are quite impressive with sweet vinous aromas backed by herbal hops with sweet malt and additional dark fruits playing along as well.
The flavor is where the wheat presence really kicks in. There is an immediate dark wheat presence, followed by the sweet malt, vinous flavors, additional fruits, and herbal hops mid-palate.
The mouthfeel is medium, yet lighter than the appearance and aroma had led on with very little carbonation and a diverse coating on the palate which as at times sweet, at times drying, and ultimately smooth.
I am impressed with this beer. As a relatively new style, I have not had much to sample just yet, however based on the description, this appears to be a winner.

3.59/5 rDev -6.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Bottle conditioned in 2014. 10.8% ABV.
Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Small chunks of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of malt, wheat, caramel, toffee, wood, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour wheat, caramel, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop and wood bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a unique tartness in the flavor that I am not sure I have experienced in other beers of the same style.
