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.

i am really glad they made this one again. i have regretted not picking up a bottle since it was out last. this is a real cool beer, oddly light in palate and oddly dry for the style, unlike any wheatwine i have had before it. its also quite hoppy too, coming through almost as an ipa in that way, although more fruity than bitter for sure. the booze is warming but not sharp, and the wheat malt is fresh and flavorful, but also extremely light in weight. honey sweetness comes on mid palate, and the oak its finished on is really subtle, but mellows the edges nicely. i enjoy the dynamic nature of this, but also the fact the i can drink a whole glass of it without being full or sugared out. definitely the most unique expression of the style ive had, and maybe one of my favorites. bold beer again in the smokestack series. some of the best domestic beers out there have come from it.
