Nice wheat wine, fresh fruity layer coating the experience.

Presentation: 750 ml brown capped bottle. Label illustrated in pastel colors with a soft image of a sunset over a field of wheat. Notes bottling on 10/2011, and 10.0% Alc. by Vol. Served in a snifter.

A - Slightly hazy amber pour, nice finger of frothy head, good retention and lacing.

S - Nice fruity nose, caramel wheaty touches, floral hint…

T - Wheaty with a long sweet fruity sense that feels rather fresh, caramel, touch of apples, light resin and citrus as it weaves itself back to the grain.

M - Medium body and carbonation, maybe a tad thin at one point but the freshness, and the boozy edge, which is noticeable but works well, make it rather enjoyable.

O - Pretty nice wheat wine. It is not too profound but the fresh flowery/fruity dash and its general sense make for a rather pleasing brew.

Notes: Really glad I got to try this one. Very few stuff from Perennial reaching me, and while all I've tasted felt quality this one might be the one that will make the bigger dent in my memory so far.
