22 oz. bottle, with Batch #386-387 printed on the label. Yet another new wheatwine creation from the masters at Pipeworks, this one a smoked beer. Another addition to Pipeworks' city wide collab series, also. The bottle lists a 10.00% abv. Not entirely sure what to expect with this one.
Poured into a clear balloon snifter.
A - Pours a muddy candied sienna orange colored body with just over a finger of soapy khaki head. Almost DIPA like in appearance, with some spotty soapy lacing on the glass. Looks pretty nice.
S - The smell comes off as quite Belgian at first - bubblegum malt, florals, coriander, some peppery spice. Lightly woodsy and soapy, but I'm not pulling out any distinctive smoke aromas. Mild alcohol fumes.
T - The oak smoked wheat really comes through on the taste. Mild alcohol fumes noticeable. Lots of floral / bubblegum sort of Belgian spice coming through also. Lightly peppery, also. Some indistinct, almost apricot like fruitiness is in there also. Either way, it's not really doing it for me.
M - Feel is smooth and creamy enough - smokey, and lightly syrupy. Full bodied with good carbonation, considering the weighty abv and texture.
Overall, not one of my favorites from these guys, but a well executed beer nonetheless. Probably my least favorite of the wheatwines I've tried from them, but it still makes for a worthy addition to the Pipeworks family, well worth seeking out.

Served in a snifter.
Finishing off the night with a Pipeworks smoked wheatwine. I'm hopeful. It pours a cloudy auburn topped by a half-finger of dirty white foam. The nose comprises mild hickory smoke, Belgian yeast, light orange peel, and a hint of what may or may not be kiwi way in the distance. The taste enhances the smoke, blunting it and forcing it to fight with the yeast, all while a strong vein of candied orange peel flowing nearby. It's a bit of a clash, though not enough to put me off entirely. The body is a stolid medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a mostly fluid feel. Overall, a nice smoked wheatwine, though I don't think the yeast used here was the most amicable choice to go with the smoke (which was tastefully restrained, relatively speaking).
