10oz draft pour at Oblivion In Orlando. This is a wheat-wine aged in bourbon barrels blended with a Belgian-style golden ale. The taste has some fruitiness with vanilla and oak from the bourbon barrel aging with a dry and slightly spicy finish with a lingering warmth from the alcohol. Overall, this is a solid Wheatwine that is definitely worth a try! Cheers!

2013 750ml bottle poured into a Lost Abbey Teku.
A - Pours straw yellow, with excellent carbonation. Nice white pillow of a head. Good lacing.
S - Insanely complex. Nutmeg, pecan, wheat sweetness along with oak and bourbon.
T - More complex than the nose. Wheat based sweetness is most present with the bourbon barrel giving some toffee, oak and naturally bourbon flavors to the brew. While the base beer throws a very slight lemon grass tartness into the mix.
M - For 11.5% I found the mouthfeel very dry, the taste lingers on the palate for a while. Booze is also fairly present.
O - Phenomenal beer. Only aging half of it in the bourbon barrel was a great call, as I don't see the subtle notes of the wheat and yeast standing up to much more. Probably should have saved this brew to share with some one considering I don't think drinking the entire thing by yourself is very healthy. Going to grab another to cellar as I imagine this brew will be absolutely incredible with a few years.
