3.78/5 rDev -2.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Bottled in February 2012, opened October 2012.
A: Pours a surprisingly bright, golden color. Even a gentle pour produced several fingers of foamy white head. Lots of foamy lacing and lots of bubbles.
S: Definitely some bourbon barrel in this one. Oak and vanilla for sure. Very strong notes of butterscotch, toffee, and caramel as well. Interesting, but maybe a little too sweet.
T: I've had lots of beers that claim to taste like coconut, but this is the first I've ever had where the coconut is actually a prominent flavor. Notes of oak, vanilla, and caramel meld with sweet citrus flavors from the yeast, making for a complex and quite interesting flavor experience. Unless I am mistaken, I don't think there is actually any coconut in this beer, but the flavors combine two create a distinctly coconut-like experience.
M: Despite the enormous head and impressive amount of bubbles, the mouthfeel isn't as crisp as I expected, but still fairly carbonated. Full bodied with a dry finish.
O: An interesting experience for sure. A well-made beer that is extremely complex. But not something I'll come running back to, especially with a price tag near $20.

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.
