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.

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Back label says Best By 6-2013. Didn't even think to check the date when I bought it.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a full inch of off-white head that retains very well before slowly dropping to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam.

S- Yeasty, spicy aroma with lots of fruity phenols. Little hints of butterscotch and other candy-like smells.

T- Tangy and sweet wheat with a noticeable alcohol taste. Still, pretty smooth and drinkable but the promising aroma has lead to a not-so-exciting flavor. More candy notes like in the smell but the booze takes away from their character.

M- Medium-high carbonation makes for a spritzy quality which I always like but the alcohol bite slightly stings the back of the throat. The body leans toward the lighter side.

O- I think I'm starting to dislike wheat wines more than I have in the past. It seems like it's a style you really have to nail to be enjoyable yet I haven't had enough examples frequently enough to know what needs to be achieved. Guess I'll just have to keep trying different ones out.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

750 ml bottle was poured into a wine glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a three finger head that reduced to a small puffy late. It is a hazy orange color with some clarity and tiny bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Caramel, wheat, fruity, citrus, tropical, oak, floral, and grassy.

Taste: Caramel, vanilla, toffee, citrus, tropical, oak, wheaty, fruity, and delicious

Mouthfeel: Smooth, a little bitter,a little dry, malty, fruity, chewy, medium bodied, and medium to high carbonation.

Overall: This wheatwine is very delicious, enjoyable, and tasty. Makes me want more.
