A- pours a reddish gold honey color. Lots of ivory foam, 3 fingers at least. Not much lacing for all that head though.

S- caramel, honey, lots of wheat grains and some bready yeast. A bit of herbal, earthy hops

T- slightly sweet from the caramel & honey notes. Wheat grains right upfront too. A bit boozy. Nice light herbal/ earthy hops layered in.

M- ever so slightly syrupy, but leans towards medium mouthfeel than thick

F- medium and slightly boozy

A nice beer that I'll appreciate more come Fall

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.

750ml into a tulip.

A: Pours an murky amberish maple with a nice white head. Sticky lacing.

S: Floral, honey-like esters, cotton candy, light caramelized malt.

T: Dryish maple and molasses, brown sugar, bitter grain, a bit nutty, whole wheat bread, dark booze underneath.

M: Between medium and thick-bodied with light carbonation.

O: This is pretty good, but it's a bit one-noted.

A - Light reddish, burgundy with a few finger tan head and a few wisps of lace.

S -Wheat malt, fruity, toffee and caramel, honey, herbal, slightly boozy.

T - Strong alcohol sweetness, slight alcohol burn, herbal bitterness, nutty with light caramel and toffee. Maybe a touch metallic as it warms.

M - Creamy but tough to get past the sting of carbonation and warming alcohol. Once that passes it has decent flavor.

D - Hard to get past the initial alcohol taste/carbonation sting. Decent beer on the finish but the initial notes are below average.
