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.

2014: (10.8%) Pours a clear red tinted orange with thin but dense cream colored head that settles quickly to a thin ring. Not much lace can stick, but leggy. Smell: huge fruity and caramel aromas... sweet grape juice, plum skin, cherry. Slightly spicy and herbal hop coming through. Taste: date, cherry, orange liquor... biting into a sugary juicy black plum, then into booze, herbal pops from hopping (and maybe oak...was that used in the last edition?), and a lightening "crispness" from wheat. Drying finish, full bodied, fine carb -- maybe it would be better with less? (Feel-wise, fits more into weizenbock-y than barleywine-y). More depth than I remember from 2010, though I'm drinking this one a bit fresher.

A - Clear amber body with thin off-white head. Took a vigorous pour. Not too much retention but some good sudsy lacing.

S - Sour grapes and tannins. Molasses and wood

T - Slight bitter hops are taken over by big sugary, molasses and cherry malts. Smokey, woody, and huge spicy alcohol throughout.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Sticky and resinous.

O - Really great beer that kicks you on your ass. I'm really glad this is being brewed in my home town.
