3.84/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Rich deep brown in color. Minimal head quickly disappears, but I see active carbonation bubbles. The aroma is a lush, inviting dark wheat aroma. The mouthfeel is very surprisingly smooth considering the strength. There's an earthiness that blends with the carbonation and makes its presence known by prickling the tongue. I've had a handful of other wheat wines and they haven't been good experiences, but this is very intriguing and inviting. There's a bit of a dark malt and buttery cracker refreshing aftertaste.

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

A: The beer is relatively clear amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short off white head that quickly died down, leaving patches of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of caramel and toffee are present in the nose; these become a bit stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell and has light flavors of caramel and toffee along with a slight amount of sweetness. No alcohol is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. There are bits of warming from the alcohol once the beer warms up.
O: This beer reminds me like a muted version of a barleywine as you can taste the malty flavors but it doesn't seem as heavy on the body as the wheat lightens things up. It is rather easy to drink considering its strength.

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

750 mL courtesy of fthomasl pours a rich ruby color with a moderate sized off-white head. Fair retention and lacing.

Nose is sugared toffee, grassy hops and alcohol. Decent, if not spectacular.

Taste is toasty toffee, fairly sweet with an alcohol bite on the end, I wish it was lighter on the malt with a healthier hop dose. It is a different sort of wheatwine than the lighter colored, more effervescent variety. This one has a heavy, barleywine feel to it. Not bad, but I likely would pass it up on a store shelf.
