3.46/5  rDev -13.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pour hazy, nearly solid burnt orange in color with frothy one finger head that has good retention.

Smell is good. Defiantly a good amount of wheat and booze on the front end. Mid section is dominated by sweet orange aromas and another aggressive alcohol, nearly liqueur like presence. Not much hops are detectable but some faint grainy malt is also near the back end of the aroma.

Taste follows the nose. Sweet orange is right up front with a big alcohol bite. Some spices, mainly cinnamon, nutmeg and clove are also detectable for a brief moment before a more dominate wheat flavor along with more orange and booze finishes.

Mouthfeel is good. Mild to moderate carbonation cuts through a big thick body and a big boozy bite.

Overall this is a big beer. Maybe slightly unbalanced and it is drinking pretty hot but I like the idea.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Batch #293296. Poured from a bomber into a snifter, the beer is a bright, vibrant, hazed, ruby-copper coloring with a thin, tightly bubbled, halo of off-white head. Aromas of pineapple, apricot, orange zest, and a subtle spice blend layer on the initial sniff, with a smooth and grainy backbone, some cinnamon and coriander spice, candied sugar, and a subtle booze note noticeable the more you dig your nose in. Flavors are robust and rich forward, with a smooth ribbon of tropical fruit highlighted with vanilla cream. Wow, pretty damn tasty. An almost immediate warmth hits your palate and throat, as well, but washes away in a slow fade. Woody notes, subtle spices (again), and a toasted bread backbone support all these transitions occurring on your palate. Smooth in mouth initially, but kept with a slight edge thanks to a slow, steady flow of carbonation throughout. The aftertaste is like candied fruit, with the pineapple, apricot, orange peel, and other sweet notes coming off with a slightly candied character. It's nice. The finish is slightly cloying, but again the carbonation cleans up just enough to keep things smooth and friendly. The increased ABV is hidden very well throughout, with the only nod given in the initial warmth you get. Solid brew!

3.68/5  rDev -8.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

22 oz. bottle, with Batch #293 296 printed on the label. My second wheat wine style ale from Pipeworks, this one aged with oranges and spices.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a nice bright burnt sienna orange, not nearly as dark as the Pipeworks Easter Bunny Vs Unicorn was. Just over a finger of frothy khaki head that goes down quick. Some scattered lacing. Not amazing looking, but it looks good.

S - The smell is good, but not great. Muted herbal spicing takes center stage, some faint orange peel, mild alcohol fumes, but mostly lots of indistinct spice rack notes dominate - oregano, clove, thyme. A bit of trademark Pipeworks creaminess.

T - The taste follows the nose - citric orange, hop bitterness, mild alcohol, indistinct herbal spice rack notes, bready wheat, but nothing that would overly identify this beer as a "wheatwine".

M - Feel is smooth and creamy. Medium-full bodied. Slightly thick, but with good carbonation.

Overall, a nice beer from Pipeworks. Not a style I am too familiar with, but I'd say Pipeworks put a nice twist to it. The alcohol content is slightly noticeable, but very drinkable at 10.00% abv. Very glad to have gotten to try it, but it's probably not a beer I would have again.

Pipeworks Elijah's Revival ---4/5.
