2014 batch, 10.8% ABV.

A: Pours a dark red with a tall, fizzy and kinda soapy-looking head. Lacing is also soapy but fades along with the head, leaving almost nothing behind. Decent retention at least.

S: Unsurprisingly, a heavy wheaty character. A bit of oak? Don't really get much else past that, very simple.

T: Hmph, more of the same. Heavy, heavy wheat from start to finish. A little herbal up front. A little oaky in the middle. A hearty, toasted bread in the middle and finish. The aftertaste is all herbal hops with a spicy, toasted bread.

M: Medium-heavy body. Lighter on the carbonation. A touch spicy.

O: Interesting wheatwine. The herbal hops and the heavy breadiness makes me think this is like a triple ESB or something along those lines. Lots of hearty, wheaty bread and herbal hops throughout. Honestly I enjoyed it. It's a bit simple but almost no wheatwines aren't.
