3.36/5 rDev -13.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pours golden with a solid quilt of light yellow foam; brilliant clarity. Smells like co2, pears, vanilla, some apple skin, some dandelion. Flavor is booze, sweet malt, sweet vanilla, some bourbon, some oak, some more pear and honeydew. Full bodied with moderately hi carb and a semi dry finish. Meh, tastes more like an old ale than a wheatwine, and although I'm not a wheatwine fan on most occassions, this one isn't at the top of that list. I think it will age gracefully however. A little sweet and a little too much pear for me.

3.85/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a hollow stemmed Goblet.
Appearance: Pours a hazy blonde and leaves a solid 2 fingers of fluffy white head. Looks nice and light.
Smell: Wheat, apricot, peaches, Belgian yeast, caramel, vanilla. A load of flavors in the aroma - definitely a lot of standard wheat beer smells as well as some completely different smells like caramel and vanilla which changes the overall profile.
Taste: Caramel, cloves, lemon, banana, vanilla, apricot. Matches the smell but packs a kick at the end. This one has an interesting combination of flavors that meld to make a "wheat-wine" type of profile.
Mouth-feel: Highly carbonated with a medium body. Much thicker than other wheat beers I have had, a little bit of syrupy texture as well. Interesting feel to it.
Overall: A very interesting brew. It reminds me of a wheat beer just taken up a few notches: heavier mouth-feel, more flavor, stronger aroma. I don't get the impression that any of this was aged in bourbon barrels, like the label says that it was, which is interesting. Definitely a lot going on in this one.
