22 oz. bottle, with Batch #371-374 printed on the label. Yet another new holiday seasonal beer from Pipeworks. My first wheatwine from these guys, so I am not sure of what to expect at all.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a typical burnt sienna orange / ruby colored body with maybe the tiniest bit of sediment noticeable. A finger of creamy frothy khaki head. Thin spotty lacing. It doesn't look too much different than their regular DIPA / barleywine fare.

S - Smell has the aroma of a lot of the bigger Pipeworks' DIPAs - grapefruit, rinds, soapiness, mild alcohol fumes, bready malt presence.

T - Taste follows the nose - bitter grapefruit / orange hop presence takes the front seat, with some bready / caramel malts in the background. Mild alcohol fumes. Tastes more like a DIPA to me than some of the other wheatwines I've tried, but I'm all for switching things up.

M - Feel is smooth and creamy, medium bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, another nice one from Pipeworks. Not entirely sure how authentic this remains to the style, but it suits me well enough, and fits in well with the rest of the 'Ninja vs. Unicorn' beer series. Recommended, but probably not one I would try again.

Pipeworks Easter Bunny Vs Unicorn ---4/5.

Copper clear pour. Cascading uprush of hop excitement. Neat to watch- for the moment.

Big hop rush and floral. Candied sweetness. A bit weedy and pithy grapefruit.

It's all hop and deep bready sweetness malt. It's like chewing on a hop cone. Alcohol boisterous on the back end, maybe too much booze sensual influence.

On the thicker side and deep rich malt and hop lingering.

An American strong for sure and a rich wheat malt make this the wine. Sitting on the fence tween Barleywine and DIPA. Expect richness and depth. Big on hop and 'Big' on booze to confound your session. You not cuuurushing this.

22oz bottle from Tanger112 (awesome extra, thanks man!). Bottled 4/10/14. Served in a Three Floyds teku.

Pours an attractive, deep chestnut hue with two fingers of beige head. Very little retention other than a small halo and almost no lace.

A bounty of fruity hops dominate the nose. Peach, mango, tangerine and pineapple with some sweet toffee and caramel in the background. Smells great.

Those hoppy aromas weren't just a tease. Mandarins, mango, citrus zest and peach lead the way. Then the malt bill comes into focus, proving that there is in fact a wheat wine underneath. Sweet burnt caramel, toffee and a hint of cracker. A slight booze heat on the back end but it fits well. Quite an interesting two headed beast with some pleasing aspects of both imperial IPA and wheatwine.

Syrupy, oily, medium-full feel with moderate carbonation. Peaches, oranges and toffee linger in the finish.

This might not be what I'd reach for when I want a wheatwine but I think it's delicious. It's almost like a double/imperial Gumballhead. Two of my favorite styles in on bottlee- the sweet caramel, toffee, mild heat and body I enjoy in a wheatwine with an outstanding DIPA hop profile. Quite glad to have tried this while it's so freash. An excellent brew.
