This is only my 2nd wheatwine I ever tasted...And now I want to try them all!!!
Appearance: Rich deep golden color, opaque in the glass and with a golden-white one finger head, decent lacing on glass.
Smell: Definite honey, wheat, bananas, and bubblegum.
Taste (!!) Wow!! Wonderful sweet front, middle, back of tongue without being cloying. Flavors of honey, orange, cloves, wheat, and blended very well together!! The alcohol taste is very well hidden in this 11% ABV wheatwine. The finish is cloves and honey, again without being cloying. The mouth feel is great, thick and creamy.
Overall: Although I am more a rookie with rookie palate, I will buy every bottle of this I can find. It has impressed me more than most craft wheat beers. I highly recommend this...A GREAT summer cooler beer!!!

2.49/5 rDev -33.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.25
Appearance: Slight haze on a burnt orange color. No head, no carbonation, nothing.
Smell: Sweet caramelized malt and enough honey to kill a bear. A touch of biscuit malt. Deeply cooked malt sugar. Very faint touch of citrus from the hops. Crazy sweet with toffee, brown sugar, and raw sugar. Crazy amounts of honey. Some orange flesh. Slight hint of wheat with some solid alcohol. A hint of alcohol spice as well.
Taste: Honey and a ton of cooked and caramelized malts. Runs caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and raw sugar. It's sweet and then some and the honey layers over it. Aggressively sweet, but not too overbearing. Warming changes all of that. Concentrated raw sugar with a tiny hint of roasted malt. Honey jelly. Faint vestiges of wheat and caramel malt.
Mouthfeel: Medium body. Smooth and slick. Negligible carbonation. Clean, surprisingly.
Overall: The Hulk is now a diabetic.
Fresh, this came with a does of insulin. Aged, it's early onset.
