Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Back label says Vintage 2014.

A- Pours a rubyish dark amber color with a 1/4 inch tan head that retains decently before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and some wispy sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves small specs behind.

S- A lot of vanilla-y wood tones emanating from the glass. Very nice and without hardly any alcohol fume which is impressive.

T- Whoa, that is smooth. The barrel comes right through but only all the good parts, displaying the vanilla and oak in a beautiful context. How is this 12% ABV? The wheat sets the stage for all the other flavors to shine and there's a caramel sweetness intertwined throughout.

M- Creamy and soft with medium-low carbonation and a fullish body. Damn near perfect.

O- This is just amazing. So dangerously drinkable and enticingly delicious. I'm going to be seeking out a lot more Barrel-aged wheatwines after this.
