750mL bottle from HalftimeBeverage.com. Bottled 09/12. Served in a Three Floyds teku.

Pours a deep red hued gold with three fingers of lively off-white head. A good few lacey spots, more than I expected considering the high-ish abv.

Smells of sweet biscuits, wheat, grass, toffee and honey/caramel. Very nice and it gets better as it warms.

A good bit of honey and caramel in the flavor with hay, toffee, bitter floral, earth, grapefruit peel, a hint of vanilla, wet grass and some alcohol heat peaking through towards the end.

Creamy, medium heavy body with relatively mild carbonation. Dry, bitter earthy sweet aftertaste.

A really good wheat wine. One of my favorites that I think will do well in the cellar for a couple years. It does a much better job of hiding it's alcohol than many others that I've tried. I wish that expense and shipping didn't prevent easier access to this but I'm happy to have a couple more. Fans of the style should try it if/when possible.

Shared this bottle at a recent bottle share and I think the consensus was that it was a damn good wheatwine

Look: Pours a almost copper color with a 1/4 inch head and good retention and spotty lacing

Smell: Some citrus wheat and caramel

Taste: Upfront you are greeted by a light fruit note and a touch of citrus hops. Back end has some nice toffee, caramel and fig notes. Very good flavor

Mouthfeel: Medium body and mild carbonation

Overall: This was my first time trying a wheatwine so I really had no comparisons to make here but I really enjoyed the hell out of it and I will seek it out again

Poured from tap at bridge in stl. Pours a slight amber golden syrup color. Not much head but its there. Smells off toffee and sweet malts with a bit of alcohol. Taste is fantastic. Sweet toffee malty booze. Slight vanilla and molasses. So easy to drink for such a high abv. Really liked this brew and my fav of the style for sure. Well worth a try but a bottle is on the spendy side

On-tap at the brewery. Poured into snifter.

A - Pours a burnt orange color, thin white head, thin collar.

S - Sweet rich fruity notes, sugary malts, vanilla, caramel, and some brown sugar. Really sweet, yet not overly so...no sign of booze.

T - Similar to the nose. Sweet fruity notes, tropical-esque, caramel, fig, brown sugar. No alcohol burn whatsoever, which is really nice and how a wheatwine should be.

M - Medium, light carbonation, creamy fruity finish.

O - Really enjoyed this one and quite possible one of my favorites in this style. The alcohol is hidden wonderfully and the sweetness is just perfect to enjoy a couple of pours, which I would really never want from this style normally. Recommend.
