A-Pours clear and brown with no head. No lacing either. Dull coloring.

S-Maple syrup all over the place. Sugary sweet with the whole 'brown sugar,caramel, molasses' bill.

T-So much Maple syrup. The first few sips were very cool, then the second half of the glass really became cloying.

M-Every sip lowered the beer's drinkability. It really weighs on you over time.

O/D-Started high and ended low but the overall experience was fun. Happy to have tried it.

Thanks to cbeer88 for this bottle!

Reviewed blind as part of Blind BIF 7. Figured I'd bring this over to my Hallowe'en shindig, share some blind fun with others. This stuff pours a clear smoky topaz topped by a finger of relatively short-lived sienna foam. The nose comprises honey, light maple syrup, light clove, and a touch of rye bread. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a touch of wheat and a large amount of waxy orange rind. The bitterness of the latter really detracts from the overall experience for me (others in the room felt otherwise). The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a generally smooth feel. Overall, an alright wheatwine, but one that suffers from overly high bitterness. I do like the approach of a dunkel-wheatwine, though...
