Had the pleasure of trying this one on-tap @ Aces & Ales Strong Beer Fest, served in a 4oz. taster glass...
A - The pull pours a hazy peach color, with a minimal off-white color head. Very sparce dots of lace are left as I sip.
S - The initial smell is huge in bourbon! When I sniff more, and work past the bourbon, there are notes of vanilla, caramel & oak.
T/M - The taste follows the nose almost exactally, with lingering notes of dark fruits. Very bourbon forward, with an oakey vanilla finish. Medium mouthfeel, low carbonation.
O - This is a VERY good wheatwine, but the bourbon dominates the flavor. Alcohol warmth is very present, but it is 14.5%. Hard to consider this a summertime wheatwine when it drinks like a big, slow sippin brew. Glad I had the chance to try this one on tap. I would drink it again.

Served from a 2012 bottle into a Bruery tulip (proper!). Poured a vibrant yellow-orange with a half finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, dark chocolate, wheat, sweet alcohol, vanilla, and cocoa nibs. The flavor was of sweet malt, vanilla, dark chocolate, wood, milk chocolate, wheat, earth, spice, and sweet alcohol. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. There is a ton of stiff going on in this one. The nose was really quite nice and balanced. Almost like this is just an unassuming beer for the masses. The flavor is the first hint that something is going on here. The booze on the follow through confirms it. This thing has simmered down some in the time before I opened it. Granted this made it really quite well balanced and easy to drink. Yes, I just said that. At 14+%, this was easy to drink. Could I kill an entire bottle to the face, probably. Would I recommend this to high schoolers to butt chug? Absolutely. The less of them there are, the better, after all. Definitely find a way to get this on your palate. Based on the rumors from the 2013 bottles, get a 2012. Based on this, you won't regret it.

The beer comes in a murky dark amber yellow.
The beer is quite sweet throughout. The base beer brings light candy sugar, vanilla, coconut. There's a hints of bourbon, but then throughout there's a light white chocolate flavor.
An interesting attempt at playing around with the base beer.
