Bottle graciously shared by sstorck, my portion into a Stone chalice.
A: Clear gold with no head, some carbonation is visible though.
S: Huge vanilla and cocoa powder aroma, lots of oak as well...fairly subdued booze (I was expecting more of a beast!) but still plenty of bourbon, whiskey, even vinous notes. Tangy & bready wheat component in there as well. Sweet and intense.
T: Really follows the nose, the burn is quite manageable and cuts the sugary sweet base of this beer quite a bit. Big vanilla finish give the impression of extra-sugary white chocolate. Oak, bourbon, and wheat...still a bit vinous with a good amount of whiskey/bourbon character. Warming finish, for sure.
MF: Creamy and smooth, this still feels like its a touch short of full-bodied...maybe thats the alcohol cutting into it some? Lower carbonation, as expected, turns this into a slow sipper.
O: Pretty awesome; this is my first wheatwine and I doubt it'll get much better than this. BIG, sugary sweet beer; LOTS of vanilla, oak, white chocolate, and bourbon here. Split this bottle several ways, and take your time ;)

Let me start by saying that I'm really not a fan of the base beer. That said, this stuff is freaking amazing.
A: Pours a light apricot color with a thin and foamy cream colored head.
S: Wheat mixed with white chocolate, cocoa powder, marshmallow and just a hint of booze.
T: One of my friends I was tasting this with called it best- this tastes like a White Chocolate Clif Bar. It's almost identical to the white chocolate coating that they use. I get cocoa, bourbon, milk chocolate, a lingering, almost sour finish and just a touch of oak. Slight burn from the booze, but this beer is just money.
