Full Sail’s 27th Anniversary Wheatwine contains no barley malt, instead, it is mashed and brewed with 100% Wheat Malt. The beer has a rich golden hue and is brewed with Wheat and CaraWheat Malts and hopped with a blend of UK and NW hops. Complex aromas of apricot, spice, and citrus lead to a smooth palate, blended with notes of caramel, marmalade, and green hop overtones.

Picked up at the COOP last week... Not sure how much I paid, but couldn't have been too much. Poured tonight into my Elysian Pumpkin goblet... The brew is fairly clear orange with a surprisingly short lived head and no real lacing.

The nose is so interesting on this one. I am very, VERY happy they didn't use a Hefe yeast like so many "wheatwine" disasters... Instead the wheat malt comes out sorta mild ... almost like a breakfast cereal with a bit of hoppy essence to balance.. I know it isn't spiced, but it smells a little spicy, cinnamon comes to mind.

Wheat is again the only big player on the palate.. crisp and clean.. a little bitterness helps to balance, but the only real hoppiness comes across as a little grassy and perhaps even Noble.

Fairly large body, but not really thick.. Good carbonation helps cut through the slickness on the palate..

Curious to see how this would settle into a rye barrel... hint, hint, hint.

Not too many solid wheatwines made now-a-days... I hope we see more of them.

Poured into a Firestone Walker snifter. Pours a medium bronze amber with a half finger off-white head that dissipates to patches leaving good lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, light and dark stone fruit, a hint of orange citrus and hops. Flavor is caramel malt, dark dried fruit, buttery toffee, wheat; finishes with well melded malt and fruit with lingering grassy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with light creaminess. A nicely balanced wheatwine with a flavor reminiscent of a dry English style barleywine, except there is a distinct wheat component. Very nicely balanced and moderately complex. The finish has nice long lasting hop flavors and bitterness with distinct wheat notes. Quite well done and enjoyable. This had such a good price, I put off buying it, but will go back for more bottles, because it appears to have good cellaring possibilties and if it develops well will be a great value. I'm fond of Full Sail's full bodied stouts and porters, but have found the other ales to be uneven. This is up there with their barrel aged offerings. Good job.

22 oz bottle from Lifesource in Salem OR $7.99 Pours a gorgeous orange colour with a small white head. Aroma of strong wheat , cream, slight spice and warmig alcohol. Smooth wheat filled taste, then gets some hay and warm cereal. Nice alcohol hints like a light brandy even. Mouth feel is fine quite smooth as befits a sipper. Nice beer for a cold New Years Night
