Notes/Commercial Description:
John Barleycorn is memorialized in English folk tradition as the personification of the barley plant, sacrificed at harvest time and then reborn as beer or ale. Our Harvest Dance Wheat Wine is a celebration of John’s Midwestern cousin, wheat. Beginning with a large portion of wheat malt, we add an equally generous helping of Hallertau and Citra hops and age the ale on both French and American oak. The result is a big, warming burst of tropical fruit flavors, highlighted by subtle wine-like notes, and rounding slowly to a long, dry, oaky finish.

A near gusher from the corked bottle. Finally settles down to a hazy amber in the Gulpener tulip with endlessly streaming bubbles. Distracting fizzy mouthfeel. Quite sticky with sugar. A whiff of Band Aids.

At first couple of sips I thought there was something bacterial going on, but it seems to be the massive carbonation and the wheaty esters. Fruity and grapey. It makes me think of alcoholic Thompson Seedless grapes with some Belgian yeast invited to the party. Sharp and aromatic with a hoppy burn, finally, in the back of the throat.

I would hope for a more refined sipping brew for a Wheat Wine, but this is certainly an experience. From the 750 ml bottle purchased at Special Brews in Lynnwood, Washington.
