Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: sleestak12 on 10-23-2013

Like many of our beers, Red Wheelbarrow (which started out as a pilot batch brewed by Brewer Dan Roberts) doesn’t fit neatly into a style category — think of it as a stronger, more hop-forward interpretation of a traditional red ale. Red Wheelbarrow is not, however, a “red IPA” — there is robust malt character (think raisin and fig) on both the nose and palate that temper the abundant hop presence (think citrus fruit).

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: The beer is clear amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that gradually died down but consistently left a short head covering the surface, a thick collar around the edge, and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose along with strong notes of caramel malts.
T: The taste starts out with flavors of citrusy hops, which transition to caramel malts and then fade away to hints of pine resin hops. A light to moderate amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite assertive and hoppy for a red ale—it's almost like a hybrid between a red ale and an IPA. I found there to be a good balance between the malts and hops.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Really impressive presentation, with a massive head squatted on the clear copper liquid; terrific retention

Smell: A blend of malt and hops, with caramel and fig tones meshing with pine and tobacco

Taste: The malt/hop blend is apparent from the get-go, with the caramel and fig tones blending together with the pine and tobacco; juicy tropical fruit, after the swallow, joins the parade, but the finish is decidedly bitter and dry

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I like what's going on but I didn't love drinking it, if that makes any sense, as I found the analysis more interesting than the enjoyment

Thanks, cp45, for the opportunity (678 characters)

Dark copper auburn color, billowing head of parchment colored foam. Sheets of lace in the glass, sticky and long lasting.

Initial hoppy aroma once the bottle was opened, slightly dank, but it dissipated quickly once the beer was poured. Toasted grains, vague marmalade.

Bitter resiny hops and a toasted grainy malt character, slightly medicinal hop character. Aftertaste is clean and toasty. Medium bodied and clean, moderate bitterness, vaguely sweet and bitter marmalade flavors. Dry and bitter aftertaste, lots of residual malt sweetness. In the vein of super fresh Alpha King on a good day. (598 characters)

Five hundred milliliter bottle shared by Andrew - thanks. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a clear dark red almost amber under a quarter-inch thick off-white head which fades to the rim and leaves spotty lace.

N: Citrusy (orange, tangerine) hops, rosewater, malts.

T: Grainy malts well balanced with citrusy hops along with dates or raisins.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Finishes semi-dry and mildly sweet grains and citrusy.

O: Interesting style, another change-up, and enjoyed. (493 characters)

Bottled 3/25/14

Little upside down waterfall head hits 1.5 fingers and fades semi slowly, creamy thick head leaves nice lacing, mostly clear amber reddish copper color.

Nose interesting hops, bit of the earthy floral kiwi hops, riwaka, little tropical fruit note, musty mild resinous but little citrus fruit, little sweet caramel malt base.

Taste starts with sweet candy malts, caramel, little syrup, then hops, earthy and spicy, little grassy and floral, more earthy kiwi terrior and some candied tropical fruits, little resin, hint pine, and fairly bitter. Finish dries a bit but little sticky, quite bitter on the finish, more spicy earthy and little resin and pine.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb.

Overall pretty nice, good hop character, nice malty base for an amber, cross between an amber and nice IPA almost. Enjoyable. (831 characters)

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 16.9oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep reddish amber color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains a nice blend of floral hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out sweet with a hearty malt character followed by some mild caramel and citrus sweetness. Then a strong hops bitterness comes in. There’s a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, good kick, very good representation of style, this is a very nice hoppy red ale to drink for a long time. (756 characters)

Amber color with the mildest of hazes. Good starting head which leaves some spotty to webby lace.

Strong evergreen and grapefruit rind aroma from the fresh hop. The malt smells are completely dominated.

This is quite a hoppy Amber ale. The base of crystal malt is present enough to provide a bit of balance. The hop provides a black pepper kick. The taste is too complex but it's tasty. Good body with a bit of spritziness. (426 characters)

Bottle from Whole Foods. Served in a DryHop taster pint. Dated 10/22/13.

A - Generous off-white foam settles to a thick cap, leaving behind plenty of splotchy lacework. Transparent amber body with tiny bubbles visible throughout.

S - Earthy and grassy hops, caramel malts, a bit of toasted bread. Nice balance, albeit somewhat understated, even when it warms up. About what you'd expect from a hoppy red.

T - The taste has a bit more oomph to it, with plenty of grapefruit peel and grassy hop flavors supported by mild red fruit, bread, and caramel malt flavors. Moderate bitterness that builds, but no perceptible alcohol.

M - Medium body, with a dry, toasty finish. Pleasant active carbonation, with a crisp, clean finish. Perhaps some lingering hop resins, but not overly sticky or oily. Again, no alcohol presence.

D - I appreciate the hop-forward focus to this one, as I generally don't enjoy red ales with too much Crystal malt to them. Surprised Maine chose to do another Red Ale with Zoe already being plenty excellent, but this is pretty solid as well. As with other Maine offerings, the bitterness is potent although it never gets excessive (for my tastes anyway). Still, probably wouldn't down more than 500ml bottle in a session. (1,246 characters)

Got in a BIF from ZebraCakez. 500 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 11/4/2014. Pours hazy deep ruby red color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, toast, brown sugar, light toffee, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity and balance of big citrus/tropical hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, pine, caramel, toast, brown sugar, light toffee, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon/orange zest, pine, caramel, toast, brown sugar, light toffee, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of citrus/tropical hops and dark/bready malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice red ale. All around good complexity, balance, and robustness of bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering. (1,583 characters)

Appearance: pours a clear amber color with a 2" head that lasts a long time.

Smell: loads of malt and fruit sweetness and a floral presence provides a pleasant aroma.

Taste: caramel, bread, ripe fruit sweetness, some grapefruit, and a hearty bitterness makes up a well balanced beer.

Mouthfeel: medium-heavy in body. Light crispness to start, smoother and a touch dry at the finish.

Overall: a very drinkable and flavorful red ale. More than one can be enjoyed in a session. (478 characters)

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass. Bottled Nov 12th 2013.

A cloudy but fairly consistent deep red and sunset orange amber body. Head is large and billowing with a little bit of out of control. Faint tan and very soapy with a thick four to five finger tall head that just will not quit.

Real nice nose. Soft hop and juicy with light caramel sensing brown sugar. Controlled sweetness. Highly aromatic with not much discerning bitterness but a slightly earthy quality and softened dankness that's hard to pin down and smaller than it's fruiter hop front. Great balance.

Juicy pine and matching tropical and citrus juices on the first sip. Carbonation is a little bit spritzy but doesn't detract. Malt depth is solid like most Maine Co beers, there are some real soft chocolate notes that just want to peak into some citrus hop angles, even if the body is quite light. Very lingering grapefruit juicy quality and huge zesty oils to match.

Overall just a really good solid and balanced amber, but definitely with a large hop presence to go with it. Another Maine offering that will please, particularly the hopheads. (1,129 characters)

500 mL bottle poured into a pint glass. Bottled 10/22/13.

Appearance - This thing overflowed by imperial pint glass. I didn't realize what was happening until I had beer all over the counter. Oh well. A four finger cream head covered a murky reddish brown body. Lace clings inside the glass and the layer of foam on the beer never fades.

Smell - Grassy hops. Lots of nutty malts. Caramel.

Taste - Really grassy. Harsh grassy hops. Almost no sweetness to this thing. Nutty malts. Toasted malts. Grassy and bitter in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Very bitter. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Probably the most disappointing beer I've had from Maine. The hops are really harsh in this. Difficult to drink the whole bottle. (729 characters)

Bottle from Ayotte's
Pours a stunningly clear red brown color with a huge fluffy milky white head that persists forever. Huge citrus hop aromas are nicely countered with a bit of caramel and toffee as well as hints of dark pitted fruits. The flavor is solidly malty with caramel and toffee up front with hints of dried fruits. Citrus earth and pine sweep in quickly to cut right through the fruity sweetness. Lingering hop bitterness last long after every sip. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. Another great beer from Maine beer. I would drink so much of this shit if I weren't forced to buy it in 7 dollar pint bottles. Love your beer, hate your price point! (707 characters)

Bottled 10-22-13

Pours a dark ruby red/chestnut brown color with copper colored edges and a frothy, two finger yellowish-beige head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting cap. Good retention, possibly too much so, with signs of over carbonation. The pillowy foam head takes forever to settle and coated the glass with soapy lacing on the way down.

Dank, floral aroma with a prominent earthy hop presence that's countered by a sweet malt backbone. Earthy and spicy with resinous oils, grassy pine, spruce tip and fresh buds followed by subtle tropical fruit and malt sweetness. There's a touch of grapefruit and citrus zest along with caramel malt, toffee, biscuit and vinous fruit. There's a stronger malt presence than I usually prefer in hoppy beers but it works really well in the nose of this beer.

Full bodied with a blast of dry, earthy hop bitterness that lingers over the sweet malt backbone into a bone dry finish. Sticky with resinous hop oils, subtle spiciness, grassy pine and earthy, soil-like flavor. Good hop flavor but not as complex as the nose suggests. A bit one dimensional and lacking the citrus/tropical fruit sweetness found in the aroma. Fortunately, there is plenty of flavorful malt sweetness filling this need and balancing things out nicely. Strong caramel malt presence with hints of toffee, biscuit, toast and subtle dark fruit sweetness. Really well balanced and easy to drink with no heat whatsoever. The malt backbone perfectly counters the dry bitterness of the earthy, floral hops. Similar to Zoe but more flavorful and better balanced in my opinion. I could drink several of these in one sitting. (1,645 characters)

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium to dark red amber with a fine light two-finger, walnut colored head that kept growing for quite a while after pouring. Looks like a sundae. Aroma of piney and citrus hops, light malt. Flavor is dense, biscuit malt, resiny pine and citrus hops, grapefruit rind, hints of lots of odd flavors, like holiday spicing and chocolate. Finishes with a pleasant citrus hop and fruit bitterness. Medium bodied with good creaminess, nice mouth feel. This is a beer that seems to have a lot going on, but the flavors are so well integrated that it is difficult to identify them. Very pleasing and balanced. Great dry malt and nice hops. Excellent. Thanks to Vikki for bringing this gem back from Maine. (748 characters)

From the 650 ml. bottle stamped 042214. Sampled on June 27, 2014.

It is an attractive looking medium amber pour with reddish hues when held to the light building up to a huge off-white lingering head. Good clarity. Looks wonderful.

The roasted caramel malts are masked on the nose by the floral, earthy, and grassy hop sensations that really let their egos get in the way. A hophead's delight.

The body is about medium but smooth.

Like the aroma the roasted barley malts kick in on the first sip but the hops quickly scuttle that and take things over bringing out this piney, floral, bitter finish. Quite a hopped up version of amber red. (642 characters)

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a reddish-orange color and a cloudy consistency. There was an inch of creamy, fairly long-lasting head. Very good lacing.

S: A subtle aroma of hops, malt, caramel, and a bready quality.

T: Tasted of a good amount of hops, caramel, a hint of pine, and a bit of malt. Like Maine Beer Company's other offerings, the flavor here is remarkably balanced. It's not too hoppy or aggressive, with just the right amount of mildness.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a prickly finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A very enjoyable, well done beer. Quite focused and certainly drinkable. (611 characters)

Bottle picked up @ Julio's. Bottled 04 Nov 2014.

A mildly hazy dark red with a thick, dense, long-lasting light brown head with excellent retention and nice lacing, this looks fantastic. The nose is a big bruising blast of hops. Resiny and pithy grapefruit, pine and preserved lemons are very noticeable, along with a moderate malt backbone, consisting of caramel and a little toffee. While the balance here is strongly in favor of the hops, there is a nice wholeness, a fullness, that comes from the tastefully designed malt bill. Caramelized grapefruit juice is how I'd describe this.

The palate opens with a big, juicy bitterness, pungent, resiny, fruity grapefruit, pine and orange peel. This is followed by a blend of caramel, a little buckwheat honey and burnt sugar before a long and brilliantly bitter finish dominated by the most gorgeously oily and resiny feel. This is by no means the oiliest beer there ever was, nor does it come close, but instead exudes great depth. This is further enhanced by a soft and supple carbonation. Fantastic stuff, Maine Beer has always impressed with the mouthfeel on their beers but this one is remarkable. Recommended for fans of Nugget Nectar. (1,191 characters)

Poured a amber brown body with two finger head and lace patches. The aroma is real hoppy with notes of grass and maybe pine along with a decent chunk of caramel and a little bread. This is a more hoppy red and one of the hoppier ones that gets it right. Hops are the star as the beer is balanced and has both a bread/cracker like crispness in the finish and caramel sweetness, but these are underneath a real citric and fresh hop bite that is very pleasing. (457 characters)

A-Pours a dark caramel color. Lightly hazy. Head is a toasted marshmallow hue and it's nice and thick. Thin, stringy lace.

S-Aroma is excellent and reminiscent of their beer MO. Like mo! I get a decadent hoppy aroma of squeezed fruit juice. Definite passion fruit notes like MO as well. Other hoppy aromas are floral, grassy and lightly piney. Caramel drizzled oranges. Zesty, grapefruit skin. Decently balanced by a solid malt backing of caramel, thick bread dough and light toffee.

T-The flavor starts with a very zesty orange and lemon hop sting. Floral and earthy hops fall into a strong piney note. Bread crust and caramel. The flavor is much more like Zoe. Like many Maine Beer Co. brews, each sip brings you another hoppy flavor component.

M-It's got some body to it. The heavier side of medium bodied. Medium-to-high bitterness. The carbonation is a bit too aggressive and prickly.

O/D-Maine Beer Company, an almost automatic producer of delicious beer. I don't mind their relatively pricey bottles if the quality will consistently be this goddamn tasty. (1,066 characters)

16oz. bottle poured into a nonic. Bottled 10-22-13

(A)- Pours a hazed deep burnt chestnut brown amber color. Produced a giant frothy off-white head with ridiculous retention. Tons of lacing.

(S)- An almost woody subtle nuttiness meets a dry grainy yeast component. Very subtle sweet citrus on the back end.

(T)- Very dry with a subtle grainy nuttiness and pine. Hoppy, but more on the pine side than citrus. Distinct, but subtle underlying caramel sweetness.

(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. Strong on the dry bitter pine side of hops, but it does have some sweetness and citrus on the finish.

(O)- Definitely a solid amber. Definitely on the hoppy side for the style but well-made. The quality of the beer is obvious, but its a bit steep for $7 a bottle. (770 characters)

Thanks, jlindros. Pours a nice bright, reddish, copper-ish amber color. It seems to be fairly hazy, though it is a bit hard to tell. The head is cream colored and puffs up quite nicely. Easy to swirl back up, as well. Lots of little bubbles. Good lacing and retention. Lots of hops in the aroma. I’m getting earthy and fruity flavors: berries, citrus, grass, pine, spice. The hops dominate, but there’s a solid malt character underneath. Toasty caramel and brown sugar. Mild bready sweetness. Good dose of nutty flavor. Mild vanilla. The taste is dry, particularly for the style, and medium bitter. Dried out crystal malt caramel backbone with that spicy, earthy, fruity hoppiness on top. Starts off with honey and caramel before the grapefruit rind and pine resin bitterness takes over, bringing with it all of the more delicate hop notes, as well. Lots of hop flavor in finish, which hits with a nice shot of bitterness and lingering fruit. Prickly carbonation. Seems a touch higher than most Ambers. Light feel for a 7% abv beer, not really surprising since it’s rather dry. I don’t love the style, but this is an excellent example and a very well made beer. It’s dry and bitter with good flavor. Easy to drink. Seems like it would go great with pizza. (1,265 characters)

Thanks to Miamilice for this extra!

500ml bottle with pressure cap.

poured into a Duvel tulip.

Appearance: dark red to a medium brown bodied beer with massive creamy and dense head. The head has alot of staying power and leaves sticky lacing all over the glass.

Smell: Grainy, toasty, and bready malts with hints of caramel and nutty notes. Pine hops with a hint of citrus.

Taste: Nice balance between malt profile and hops. Mild hop bitterness that just barely overpowers the malt. Mostly resinous pine, lemon zest, and melon rind. The hops also have a touch of dank and chalky qualities about them. Interesting combination of hop flavors. The malts taste just like they smell. A touch of bready and caramel sweetness with a hint of nuttiness and grain. Lingering mild bitterness from the hops in the form of resinous pine and a touch of toasted pine nuts.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel and it is really drinkable.

Overall: Maine Beer Company always makes great hoppy beers! This is a good beer, but Zoe is far superior when comparing American amber ales brewed by Maine Beer Company. Maine Beer Company beers always have that premium mouthfeel from the bottle conditioning which always distinguishes their beers from other hoppy beers. I will always be a fan of this east coast brewery! (1,343 characters)

Thanks to pjkelley82 for this beer, arriving as an extra last week. 500 ML bottle split with my wife while watching a little Justified. I think if I talk like Raylan my wife might…never mind.

The pour is more orange than red, which makes me wonder about Maine wheelbarrows. Or colors. Plenty of carbonation. The nose consists of rusty caramel, really, I can’t get any hops up my nose at all. Pretty underwhelming.

Red Wheelbarrow brings nothing glib to mind. Tons of hops coat the tongue & create third degree hop burns front to back: wow. Bitter, bitter, bitter, with secondary symptoms of orange & tangerines. Rusted caramel malts cut the anger somewhat, but the bitterness returns with a vengeance to hop up the finish, too. Half a shorty bottle is enough.

Half a hop vine clearly went into this hop bottle, making it the harshest, hoppiest red I’ve ever laid tongue on. Interesting & good. (905 characters)

picked this one up locally the other day, poured into a maine brewing wine glass. bottled 102213, just over a week ago.

brew poured a sexy reddish brown...almost amber with a generous finger and a half of creamy head. head really has a belgian look to it, so creamy and staying power...great thick lacing too.

nose is all red ale...toasted, crystalized malt with a good serving of grains. spicy herby hop.

taste is roasted red...resiny toasted biscuit. very herbal...almost ESB like, but on steroids. subtle bitterness.

mouth is good carbonation and bitter tail.

overall a big bold roasty red. worth checking out, even if you don't dig the style. (652 characters)
