A: Murky deep amber, the head is huge and dense. Great lacing.
S: A huge aroma of grainy buckwheat, fruity and nutty, sweet and inviting. Intruiging and unique aroma.
T: Sweet fruity bubblegum, melony-berry in the middle, a little nutty or roasty near the end and with a mouth coating bitterness. I like this more than I thought I would.
M: Extremely ful bodied but light and creamy, this has a really outstanding mouthfeel.

750ml bottle poured into tulip 19/7/13
A murky dark brownish amber with enough clarity to see a few slow tiny bubbles feeding a very well sustained massive beige foam that leaves 6 distinct rings before falling to a pencil top eraser island, looks fantastic
S caramel and butterscotch, candied pineapple, honey, Proef yeast, herbal notes, cereal, little booze, and some citrus rind
T more citrus rind and slightly less caramel and more candied pineapple, a little spice I can't place and there's booze but its well hidden, not sure the age but shes still pretty hoppy, tastes solid but the nose has a slight edge
M full and little syrupy, enough carbonation to give it a slightly creamy feel, just a little heat on the way down ans a sweet rind finish
O great beer and a solid example of the style, not sure of the age and I don't know if I'd want to age it further or not, a nice balance of sweet malt and hops, very easy to drink for a strong heavy beer
worth looking for and when you consider who came together to brew it I shouldn't be surprised. Yet another one of those beers where I want to try it on its bottling date and again well sown the road, I'll be buying a couple to age out of curiosity

12oz glass at Underground Edmonton, a sneak preview of their Mikkeller (and friends, evidently) tap takeover starting this Thursday.
This beer appears a hazy, murky dark apricot brown colour, with one fat finger of bubbly, thickly foamy, and fairly creamy beige head, which leaves some nice pockmarked stoneface lace around the glass as slowly ebbs away.
It smells of sweet caramel and wheat malt, an indistinct graininess, a slightly musty yeastiness, muddled orchard and tropical fruit, floral, leafy hops, and a simmering booze warming. The taste is very barleywine-esque up front - big, bulging caramel/toffee malt, subtly aided here by some beefed-up wheat malt, one rather bereft of any usual edge or crispness, a musty, dusty, old cellar dankness, lingering brewer's yeast, and subdued leafy, floral, and somewhat citrusy hops. The big ABV does well to keep its distance.
The bubbles are actually active, but keep their head down while they go about their duty, the body a sturdy medium-heavy weight, and generally quite smooth, the only thing threatening ingress being the quivering alcohol. It finishes sweet, duh, the caramel and sugar wheat cereal pops fullness having little trouble with the latent fruity hops, while the booze still seems capable of minding it own manners.
Probably the tastiest wheatwine (sorry, Half Pints!) I've come across, and yes, it's mostly because of the barley wine proximity, but also due to the alcohol integration, and maybe the agreeable hop balance. Lots going on here, but at the same time, it really seems quite simple. Glad to have gotten a go at this one - thank you John from Soltice.
