750mL waxed bottle poured into a snifter. Thanks to Matt for sharing!
(A)- Pours a hazy golden orange color. Produced some white froth and lacing.
(S)- So sweet! I totally get the name of this beer with the sheer and pure mountains of white chocolate this has in the aroma. One of the few times the name really does fit how the beer truly is.
(T)- Again, the name totally fits this. A huge sweet and rich white chocolate profile. Really no other way to describe this other than an immensely sweet, liquid alcoholic white chocolate.
(M)- A mellow carbonation level meets and extremely sweet white chocolate profile. Damn is this sweet though. Almost cloyingly too sweet for me.
(O)- This is so sugary sweet, but damn it does it fit the name perfectly. Very interesting to say the least. Very happy we split this 5 ways.

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip glass. 2012 Edition.
Appearance: Pours a deep honey, amber color and leaves a finger of off-white head that fades very quickly.
Smell: Delicious bourbon, vanilla and chocolate, as well as some oak. Mouth-watering sweet scents. Finishes with a bit of bourbon heat.
Taste: Plenty of tasty bourbon and malts. Finishes with light chocolate and strong vanilla - definitely reminds me of savory white chocolate! Amazing finish. A touch of heat just before the finish, but not overbearing at all. Also some oak and a touch of wheat in there.
Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a medium body. Nice and creamy, and there is a bit of heat but it is still relatively smooth.
Overall: I was very pleased with this brew. The time in the barrels gave this beer some really nice bourbon flavors and the vanilla and cacao gave it an incredible finish. Definitely a very tasty sipper.

750mL bottle acquired through the Reserve Society. No bottle date but I believe it has only been bottled once in late 2012. Served in a Terrapin snifter.
Pours a hazy opaque lemon orange hue with about a half finger pale head. The head quickly recedes to a halo that leaves no lace. I don't think I've ever seen such a pale hue with this much opacity. Not cloudy but no transparency. It's a beauty.
Wow! Smells like straight up white chocolate with vanilla, bourbon, wax, a sweet fruit character and a whiff of alcohol.
My nose wasn't lying. A deliciously complex blend of flavors including vanilla, sweet cream, white chocolate, bourbon, honey, caramel, some sort of funky fruity yeast type notes, candy sugar, sweet wax and a sharp swift kick of booze that seems right at home in the mixture. As it gets to room temperature the flavors really open up even more. Amazing!
The feel is slightly effervescent but with a nice syrupy heavyness. Long sweet waxy white chocolate aftertaste.
I'll admit that as a huge fan of both wheatwines and white chocolate that I may be predisposed towards this but The Bruery has done a truly outstanding job here. Every aspect has been nailed. Hands down the best wheatwine I've had and definately in my top 3-5 beers. I'm super excited for the chance to buy more when they release it later this year.
