Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

Ah, finally having another wheatwine. It's been too long, kids... Anyway, this stuff pours a mostly clear amber topped by a half-finger or so of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises white bread, orange peel, mild booze, and a hint of cream. The taste ups the booze ante, along with the requisite burn; then there's a sense of off Cointreau being suffocated by wet white bread slathered in Country Crock. Then add a sprig of mint and astringent pine resin. Ooph. The body is a hefty medium, with a very light moderate carbonation, a slightly syrupy feel, and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, this was just an unpleasant wheatwi--make that an unpleasant beer in general. No nuance, no real niceness, this seems rather rough for a wheatwine.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Brown color to this brew but ruby red when held to light. Light carbonation active in glass while drinking. About a finger of head on the pour which dissipated quickly. Thin to no head. Light random lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell: A ton of rounded wheat bursts out of the glass. Sweet tones of toffee and caramel add a ton of depth to this brew. Dark fruit and barley are found on the undertones. A very subtle sweetness dominates this brew and is outstanding.

Taste: Once it hits the palate a bright wheat presence lights up. The body opens up with heavy malt, dark fruit, caramel, butterscotch, and toffee. Sweetness again like the aroma comes through but plenty of mature tones to balance it out. The finish is a slight funkiness with more caramel sweetness. The aftertaste is a dry wheat feeling that lingers on the palate.

Mouthfeel: A nice full body with great balance of sweetness and heavier tones.

Overall: One of the top offerings from Spiteful no doubt. Killed it with this many times overlooked style. A ton of complexity and wonderful flavors. Spiteful continues to assert itself as one of the top breweries in Illinois.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a clear amber capped by a magnificent head; plenty of lacing and excellent stickage

Smell: Wheat bread, pine and toffee, with a spicy edge of dried citrus peel

Taste: While there is a wheat bread undertone to this beer, the front end is very aggressive with pine, dried citrus peel, tobacco and herbal/medicinal tones adding an earthy, bitter edge; increasingly bitter, almost challengingly so, with residual toffee sweetness building in the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: This is a terrific beer with huge flavor though I don't care for the marketing shtick - focus on making good beer, not denigrating and stereotyping people

Brewing continues to impress me and I wish them
well. Nice to see another brewery explore this style;
Barleywine + Wheatwine are very underrated, IMHO.
I must pick up another bottle and lay it down for a cold,
Chicago Winter night by the fire.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours brown in color with some hints of red and a slight haze. Head is about 1 finger, light tan and has decent retention.

Smell has tons of wheat forward with rye like notes. Rich husky malt is the backbone of this brew. Hops are maybe a little spicy however somewhat hard to detect. Malt is the main showcase.

Taste is a punch in the mouth. Tons wheat is forward, with a little bit of a rye like husk flavor. Rich caramel malt is unbelievably rich. Notes mainly of rich caramel and a nice moderate residual sweetness. There is also a light fig and plum like fruitiness near the end.

Mouthfeel is super thick. mild carbonation along with the rich body make this a big beer.
