Presentation: 22 oz brown bomber with a bottled date on the label.
Appearance: Decent frothing with some killer stickage from a good head retention. Clear but quite dark, orangey brown in color.
Smell: Shortbread cookies, vague vanilla, caramel, sweet blueberry skin clean nose and subtlety aromatic.
Taste & Mouth Feel: Creamy slick full bodied mouth feel. Thick malty palate with a warming alcohol attached. Modest hops let the malt character unfold; toasted malt, hint of soft cocoa, faintness of brown sugar and a bold spicy wheat. A touch of herbal hop middle to end. Nice lining in the finish of a toasted malt flavor.
Drinkability & Notes: This brew proves that wheatwines are very different from barleywines. Without a doubt this is a sipping brew, a great one none the less.
Serving type: bottle

Served in snifter at Portsmouth Brewery.
Appearance: This beer poured a small head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a murky reddish brown with bubbles coming up the side of the glass.
Smell: Bready, caramel, toffee, spicy, bananas, and clove.
Taste: Caramel and toffee delight. Spicy, yeasty, bready, bananas, and a little alcohol.
Mouthfeel: Creamy smooth, medium bodied, warming alcohol, low to medium carbonation, and it got better as it warmed up.
Overall: Pretty solid wheatwine from Smutty's sister brewery.
Serving type: on-tap
