Grabbed a couple growlers at a Bruery tap takeover at Bierkraft last year. Just getting around to posting the review now:
A - Looks almost like tokaji, a foggy light taupe with very little head
S - Vanilla and cake batter. A little cinnamon and brown sugar spice from the barrel but none of the smoke. Exceptionally smooth, desserty nose with just a hint of banana and cherry.
T - Lots of toffee, vanilla and something akin to a honey-bran muffin. Some milky (or perhaps even ... white) chocolate, banana, and a hint of lemon peel. Zero bitterness, or any hop presence. Comparable to Utopias in that regard. It does approximate white chocolate, but I'd compare it more to the creme in a cherry cordial.
M - Sticky, medium consistency. The high ABV means it's definitely hot.
O - One of the tastier Bruery offerings and the best wheatwine I've had (but let's be clear: I've only had a handful of wheatwines). Glad I split this up in tasters of about 9 oz. Anything more than that would have put me to sleep.

The pour is a murky light brown, no visible head. Bubbles coming from the bottom, some nice film around the glass. Smell is sweet and huge with white chocolate flavor. What a great smelling beer. There's a sweet bourbon start on the flavor, then falls back to a smooth white chocolate and vanilla after taste. You can also pick up oak, and the alcohol burn isn't overwhelming. It's incredibly sweet but it's so flavorful. Medium mouthfeel, slightly carbonated, thought it would be more bubbly from the appearance, but I'm glad it's not. Nice unique beer and a great sipper.
