A: Pours a hazy gold with orange highlights and a creamy, clinging white mousse that leaves a thin trail of white lace down the sides of the glass.

S: Aromas of pine, grapefruit, mint, orange, and lemon are nicely balanced by a grainy tartness from the buckwheat. For such a strong ale, there is no alcohol on the nose. It smells quite inviting.

T: A resinous, bitter entry reveals notes of bitter orange, lemon, pine, grapefruit, sage, orange candies, and buckwheat. The finish is hoppy and plenty bitter with the expected interplay of tart citrus and grain flavors.

M: Medium-to-full in body, perhaps closer to the latter than to the former. Carbonation is present, but not particularly intrusive. This ale is rather sticky and resinous in the mouth, so it's not particularly drinkable. Treat this one as a sipper.

O: This is an endlessly fascinating ale that I would have no problem buying again if it were ever available. Despite the high alcohol content and ridiculous amount of hops used, there is nothing imposing or overwhelming about this beer. A really fascinating, innovative take on the wheatwine style, and a beer that I would have no reservations about recommending to anyone.

On-tap at FFF XV and poured into a tasting glass.

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

S - Burnt sugars, sweet malts, orange chewy candy with sugars. Very sweet and rich, big and bold...still quite balanced and the alcohol is hidden well.

T - Sweet orange candy, burnt sugars, slight caramel, slight hoppy notes. Again, very sweet and rich...the alcohol is there but pretty well hidden for over 10%. Syrupy orange/sweet finish.

M - Medium, light carbonation, creamy, sweet syrupy finish.

O - A decent wheatwine...I had no problem finishing my pour. This is a desert beer and an enjoyable one, at that. Would have again, if I had the chance.

On tap at the maproom, probably the last pour.

Color is a hazy golden orange color. Creamy white head with excellent retention and spiderweb lacing.

Aroma is very strong and mainly resinous, piney and citrus hops. Tart wheat fermented malt is in the background.

Taste emulates the nose with a very heavy tart fermented wheat malt with loads of citrus and fruity hops to go along. Low bitterness follows and alcohol is mildly apparent.

Body is heavy with moderate to low carbonation.

Great extreme beer from 3F. It has a low drinkability but a lot of flavor.

A - Clear amber colored beer with a white head that left some nice sheets and lace down the side of my glass.

S - I don't usually like grapefruit in a beer, but this one has a great grapefruit quality that is quite pleasant. Slightly earthy with some nice hops that balances our the wheatwine sweetness.

T - Taste is great. Some caramel, honey, grapefruit, and nice hops. I really dig this one, possibly my favorite Wheatwine ever.

M - Nice carbonation, beer is really smooth, medium bodied.

O - Goes down easy, way too easy to drink given the ABV. This was a great beer, and for style, one of my favorites.

On tap at the Map Room. 12oz poured into a tulip glass.

A – Dark Caramel, no light coming through. Nice head dissipates in the middle, hangs on to the edges forever. Lacing clings to the side of the glass all the way to the rim.

S – Not overpowering. Lemon-orange. No alcohol, definitely has hops. Very refreshing.

T – Freaking delicious. Delicious malty pale ale beginning gives way to a hint of lemonade. Flavors hit, do their job, and then let the next flavor in. Very well rounded. Not overly sweet. I get some alcohol, but it’s the tiniest amount and in a good, warm way. It balances what sweetness there is.

M – Carbonation hits and then it’s smooth, thick.

O – Awesome awesome beer. Complex and fun to drink. Very glad to have had the chance to try it—will seek out again.
