Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

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.
