look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - Light golden brown (almost the color of rum) with a clear and clean looking body. Small head with a rim of foam on the sides

S - Light vanilla and oak. Hints of caramel. Overall the nose is faint.

T - Light vanilla, pear, cinnamon, dry white wine. Interesting interplay between the sweet vanilla and the white grape flavors. Light oak and almond linger in the finish.

MF - Surprisingly light as I expected this to be thick given its a wheat wine. Light alcoholic warming and oak in the finish

O - An interesting beer that tastes nothing a bear claw other than light vanilla and almond. The fruit flavors are a bit off. This had the potential to be good but just seems off as the flavors don't blend together well

Served in a tumbler at the brewpub.

Y'know, I was hoping to try the regular version of the this stuff, but, frankly, I will never argue with a barrel-aged wheatwine... This stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises light white grape, light orange zest, light tequila, oak, and vanilla bean. The taste brings in more of the same, though about half of the aforementioned tequila now comes through as whiskey, and a light bit of apple slides in almost unnoticed. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a very light moderate carbonation and a fairly smooth feel. Overall, a solid wheatwine, but I'm not sure the barrel really helped it all that much (though now I still need to try the naked version to really know for sure...).
