Tulip glass at the brewery on Saturday after the Angels and Yankees game, this beer is actually a wheatwine, excited to try another component of the Melange #3, color is a golden yellow with some orange tint, one inch fluffy white head, some retention, minimal lacing, good looking for a barrel aged brew, aroma consists of oak, milk, vine, bourbon, lots of vanilla, tannins, overly ripe berries, and some doughy wheat, taste starts off a little warming with the booze hitting you up front, ripened fruits in the middle mixed with a little toffee, not chewy at all and mostly sweet, finish is also warming with lots of vanilla, some caramel that is on the sweeter side lingers in the aftertaste, warms up nicely, would have been much better on a cooler day probably, sticky, sweet, warm, and fruity mouthfeel, medium bodied, decent carbonation, taste lingers a long time, could drink another glass but this stuff is strong and you can pretty much taste it, at least it is not heavy or too sweet, which saves its drinkability, will drink again, recommended

750mL bottle poured into a snifter.
(A)- Pours a hazy golden apricot orange color. Some decent white froth and lacing.
(S)- An interesting smell of toast and apricot jam meets honey and oaky booze. Bits of orange citrus and wheat in the background.
(T)- Plenty of orange/apricot citrus meets wheat and biscuit. A splash of honey and oaky booze at the end.
(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. Not overly sweet but a serious punch of citrus for a wheatwine. The heat is a bit forward too, but not off-putting.
(O)- An interesting wheatwine that is quite potent in the citrus realm.
