Poured a beautiful cloudy orange that filtered light beautifully. Atop it was a nice, one finger white head that contrasted nicely. Very appealing to the eye. Scents of pineapple, fruity esters, overripe fruit, and slight citrus and banana aromas. Quite appealing, very fruity. Taste follows the nose, fruity, with strong flavors of tropical fruit, slight hints of pineapple and a very strong sweetness throughout, along with some white grape juice in the background and slight hints of wheat cracker. Very well done, quite fruity and sweet, very much a sipper, and the sweetness hides the 11% ABV entirely. Mouthfeel was medium-heavy bodied with moderate carbonation and a crisp finish. Overall this is an excellent wheatwine. It's sweet and fruity, in aroma and taste, which hides it's strong ABV. It's refreshing, yet strong, quite sippable and all around a very well crafted beer. I recommend it.

Picked up a chub fill of this at Brewforia Eagle tonight after a long day at work. Paid a pretty reasonable $10... Pours a hazy light orange with a strong 2 finger head that leaves behind pretty decent lacing.

Nose shows quite a bit of yellow peach along with a subtle spicy element... something that I associate with green apple skin.

Flavor mirrors the aroma with a more pronounced honey/sugary grainy note.. light sorta pithy citrus hoppiness... The body is pretty thick and carbonation is a little light so it definitely lends toward the sipper side of things.

Pretty good I guess.

3.75 across the board.

Growler filled just over 24-hours ago... about 29 hours to be exact.

Slow growing yellow tinted white soapy-foam head on top of mildly murky orange brew with lots of reds.

Apple, burn, heat, heavy aroma, earthy pine. A bit latex-y.

Resinous, deep, sticky, not sweet, nicely bitter, rounds out nicely after initial snap of flavor. Carbonation is light and welcomes flavors. Bubbles provide nice crisp character to an otherwise evenkieled brew. Piney hops compliment malted backbone and provide great complexity.

Slightly a miss, but evens out nicely with flavors and feel.. Glad I stopped by the brewery on my trip from Glacier Park. Also, Yes, I'm still looking for and wishing for a Montana Trading partner...

Growler bought at Liquor Shed.

It pours a hazy honey colour with a small head of foam that shrinks quickly to a fine layer; not much lacing.

Big sweetness in the smell that reminds me of candi sugar. Slightly fruit aroma as well with no bitterness that I can tell.

A nice moderate flavour of wheat followed by big sweet notes that stop just short of being cloying. A hint or 2 of vanilla with some rather earthy notes. A pretty big alcohol presence rounds out this rather tasty sipper of a Wheat Wine. Nice.
