4.05/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a Delirium tulip on 2/9/11

Split with MbpBugeye

2010 vintage, bottle 264/276

Pours a light, dull brown; settles darker with a medium ruby glow. Just under one finger head that dissipates quickly. A thick collar of retention & a skim across the top.

The aroma is really musty; oak barrel, wheat & hints of dusty yeast make for a blanket of dry, earthiness that sits atop soft notions of dark fruits. Slight overtones of raw honey. Swirling drags up more fruity aspects & blurs the aroma distinctions. Not a whole lot of actual bourbon.

Hmm... I'm surprised how much stronger the flavor of the bourbon is than the smell; it's prominent, but even, throughout. The bourbon blends well with a soft layer honey (that is far from too sweet), butting up to a toasty wheat note. Grainy, sugary undertones. Charred barrel picks up on the back half. Good stuff.

Medium-full body with some grittiness. Moderate carbonation wears off over time resulting a rather sluggish feel. Finishes hot with something of a numbing sensation.

I've enjoyed this one just fine; tastes much better than it smells. The interplay between ingredients works out really well. Worth a shot.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This bottle was from 2011 release. The beer was chilled and served in a snifter.

A The body of the beer is a dark garnet coloration. Nice ruby high lights when back lighted. One finger high light tan head that resolves to a ring of foam.

S- The beers aroma is loaded with bourbon soaked wood. Lots of oak, vanilla, caramel, earthy peat notes peak out from under the barrel, a bit of spicy clove tones.

T- Deep wooden oak vanilla bourbon notes. If you dont like bourbon this one isnt for you. Caramel, cloves, banannas lightly sour tone a bit tannic at times with a dry finish.

M- The body is medium with a very gentle carbonation. Nice dry finish. Not a hint of alcohol.

O- Delicious! I am currently lamenting that I only have one more bottle sitting in the cellar.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours murky reddish brown. Small off-white head fading into nothing. A bit of lacing.

Loads of honey in the aroma. Bready caramel, oak and bourbon as well as a tanginess from wheat.

Best taste descriptor I can come up with is honey wheat bread. Loads of bready malts again with large amounts of honey are prevalent. A bit of bourbon cuts the sweetness and is well integrated. Charred dark fruits complement the main flavors. All very well integrated.

Medium mouthfeel with medium low carbonation.

Overall probably the best wheatwine I've had. All flavors are integrated well and the bourbon balances out the sweetness to create a delectable treat. Jackie O's again is one of the most underrated brewers around.

2011 bottle into CBS snifter...

A. Pours a dark, rusty brown color. About a quarter finger of loose, cream-colored head rings the neck of the beer and also creates some nice swirls in the middle. Spotty lacing. Head is a little less organized than I would like, but otherwise it's good.

S. Lots of honey, ripe fruit, and caramel. A lot of brown sugar and bready malts. Subtle hints of bourbon and oak char, too. I detect some floral notes as well. This is excellent.

T. Bread crust, really sweet, tannic notes that I would associate with the barrel, some honey, and caramel. This almost has a pucker to it, like it's on the beginnings of infection but not quite there. Hmmm...confusing. I can't tell if it's the honey or some fruit notes, but definitely some slight tannic character here. Otherwise, this is all bread, charred oak, caramel, and honey. Little kiss of bourbon on the back-end. Not all that bad, but flavors could be integrated better...bitter sweetness overrides a lot of what is going on here.

M. Thin. Not a lot of carbonation on this one as could be expected from the look of the pour. As stated in the tasting notes, it's got a tannic feel and isn't the smoothest in this style.

O. This is solid, but unremarkable for me. There's a cloying and almost metallic sweetness to this that just doesn't play well with the other flavors. Can't tell if it has oxidized too quickly, if there's some infection, or if the barrel and honey are doing weird things here, but the end result is just okay.
