Beer is a cloudy caramel colour, with a large white head. Fades slowly, leaves some lace.
Nose contains oak, bourbon, banana. Spices, caramel. Light fruits.
Taste is pretty good. Orange, banana, vanilla, bourbon and oak. Some spices, clove seems to be there. Caramel. Booze is noticeable, but pretty well hidden considering how strong thebeer is. Tastes like a big, heavy hefeweizen in bourbon barrels.
Full bodied, moderate carbonation. Heavy.
Overall, quite good, but pretty heavy slogging.

750 ml bottle into snifter, bottled on 3/8/2013. Pours very hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big pineapple, banana, apricot, pear, pepper, clove, toffee, coconut, oak, bourbon, wheat, light vanilla, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of yeast, malt, and barrel notes; with great strength. Taste of big pineapple, apricot, pear, banana, clove, pepper, toffee, oak, bourbon, wheat, vanilla, candi sugar, and yeast earthiness. Light fruity/earthy tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, light fruit, banana, clove, pepper, toffee, oak, bourbon, vanilla, wheat, candi sugar, bread, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of yeast, malt, and barrel flavors; with a nice moderate barrel presence and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a fairly slick, crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is good. Moderate alcohol warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice blended wheat wine style. All around nice balance and complexity of yeast, malt, and barrel flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV despite the moderate warming on the finish. A very enjoyable offering.

3.6/5 rDev -7%
Appearance: Pours with a very thick head which settled at about a finger. Active carbonation in glass while drinking. Burnt orange color and a murky body.
Smell: The bright yeast golden ale aroma comes through on the front of this beer. Cinnamon, coriander, and pepper are present. There is a medium bodied wheat presence with a slight bourbon finish. Interesting but there is a lot going on here, some of it in a conflicting way.
Taste: The front is a bright carbonated champaign feeling. A honey like sweetness warms up on the palate. Earthy, straw, and yeast body dominates this beer. Some wheat dryness, barrel presence is light and gets lost in everything else going on here. Oaky funk finish.
Mouthfeel: Creamy sweet start and finishes with some wheat and oak dryness.
Overall: An interesting blended beer with a lot going on. Some of it gets lost and other areas dominate a little more then others. A ride for the palate though, glad I got to try it.

Sometimes a big beer is just what is needed and it pours a clear yellow straw hue with a one finger head with no lacing but a subtle rim,the smell is bourbon,vanilla,booze and coconut,the mouthfeel is full bodied with moderate carbonation and has tastes of vanilla,coconut,caramel,booze,candy and is finished just like a fine white port with a touch of warming bourbon on the back of the palette and overall it's such a unique drop that toes the boundaries of wheat beer and wine and even though I've tried it and liked it I probably wouldn't fork out the big dollars on it again cheers.
