2.55/5  rDev -29.6%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

This 12oz was labeled with only a small strip from a label maker which said: "Wheatwine."

Gusher. This was sitting in my fridge for two weeks to cool/settle based on some advice. Despite this, a flash of foam filled my glass for nearly an hour without moving at all.

The beer is a bright hazed honey color with vigorous rising carbonation.

Smells sweet and slightly sour. Cherry mingles with lots of sugary malts and crystal residual sweetness.

The taste is of caramel and sweet boooziness. Fruity with a tart aftertaste.

The carbonation is a wreck and the alcohol is damn hot.

Overall this was a mess, but I assume fresh it was a beer worth serious inspection.

I think this came from a twelve or twenty two ounce hand bottle. Enjoyed in apint glass. Really not impressed by this. Dull, boozy and lacks any sort of depth or complexity. I had no problem drinking the bottle, but not their best effort thus far. But then again I've never really been impressed by any of their stuff.

4/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Half a finger of off-white, creamy foam with above average retention, nice thickness to the lacing as well. Translucent amber orange color with a streak of deepening red, doesn't betray much cloudiness nor is there much sediment in the bottle, warm appearance. Sweet and malty nose, at times almost smells like a wee heavy, candied tangerines, caramel, butterscotch, raisin bread, rye bread, as much florality as anything wheat-related, nothing bitter nor sour to be found, dense enough to stick around for some time. Full-bodied, just as dense here albeit manages to achieve a "jogging pace" forward through the palate. Tangerine, pink grapefruit citrus fleshy and snuggles up to the brown sugar, molasses, caramel, milk chocolate flavors. Even less bread, wheat or other grain flavors here. After awhile, you just have to treat it as a "beer" and take it on its own terms rather than see it in light of what's on the label. Allowing for this, not a bad brew at all and definitely a winner for those with a sweet tooth.

[Note: No real label, acquired in trade,hand written date of 2/10. ABV typed on sticker.]

Oh yeah, 13% APWA. Or rather, wheatwine. Thanks, Devin!

Mildly hazy amber with a dense, mildly off-white head with excellent retention (especially for ABV) and even a little lacing, this looks good. The nose is strange. Grassy and hay-like Brett is noticeable up front, upon a very bready backbone. With some caramel, this is quite nutty with a mild almond-skin like astringency. Fruity plums with some raisins, this is very complex and thoroughly enjoyable

The palate opens with a a blend of tutti fruiti and bread flavors, sweet but not cloying. Very, very wheaty and bready, this has plenty of raw wheat, which when contrasted with the sweetness is unique. Fruity sweetness that brings to mind drying plums, there's a little fig character too.. Sweet on the finish, some of the (unintentional) Brett character makes its presence known with a blend of tartness, mild acidity and some barnyard. Mildly sweet, this medium bodied beer has low carbonation and is excellent. The lingering tartness does make this unique. Excellent stuff, thanks again, Devin!
