4.15/5 rDev -4.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 500 mL bottle into a pint glass.
A - Pours a dark slightly hazy brown. One finger of coarse tan head that fizzles out quickly. No lacing.
S - lots of fruity esters typical of a wheat beer up front--banana bread, raisins, pear. Some herbal hop character. Some toasted bready aroma is present as well.
T - fruity and peppery up front. Nice wheaty dryness through the middle mixed with a complex caramely malt body. Has a refreshing orange peel tang in the finish that sits at the back of the tongue. Leaves a sweet and fruity aftertaste. It's like they took everything that makes a wheat beer great and "turned it to 11."
M - thick and chewy mouthfeel. Sparkling carbonation that compliments the zesty wheat character well.

4.1/5 rDev -5.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Having a bottle touted as brewed in 2005, aged for 8-9 years. Having not rated in the style before, I wasn't sure I'd like it, to begin with, let alone an aged version (or maybe ill like it better).
Upon pour and what little scent I got, it reminded me of some barleywines or some Belgian dark ales. Raisin notes win out emanating from the muddy-auburn brown liquid. The taste is also of dark fruit-fig and dark brown sugar, a touch of banana and a slight tang of alcohol bite. The feel has a surprising effervescence to it, considering there was so little head or obvious carbonation in the look.
A very smooth, dark-style beer. The bitterness I normally enjoy in a beer is nicely replaced with a bite of alcohol and presumably carbonation. I expected a well-balanced beer when I saw the rating, and I wasn't disappointed.
