3.58/5 rDev -8.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
On-tap at Pizzeria Paradiso in a brandy snifter:
A: Deep and dark black color with a thin tan/light brown head.
S: The aroma had a nice big malty aroma with a hint of wheat and a big boozy component.
T: I didn't know what really to expect as this was only the second of this style that I have ever had, but it had a big taste. Dark fruits with heavily toasted malted barley with a big boozy finish. I expected more characteristics of a wheat beer/hefeweizen.
M/D: The beer had a heavy body and with the high alcohol content, one should probably not enjoy more than one and any sitting. The beer was creamy, but it felt a little watered down. Overall, not a bad beer, but I am unsure as to why it is called a wheat wine when I really didn't get any characteristics of a wheat beer.

12 oz bottle, 2010 vintage, so aged 3 years.
pours a very dark brown, almost black. thin head that fades. smell has a bit of roasty coffee & herbal yeast spiciness. taste has a bit of boozy flavor but without the harshness. wheat, a touch of roast, dry aftertaste. on the thicker side, moderate carbonation. good mouthfeel, easy to drink.
overall I think the age has smoothed things out. very nice.

12 oz bottle was poured into a snifter. 2011 version.
Appearance: This beer poured a one finger off white head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a dark brown color with no clarity or bubbles seen coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Fruity, bready, caramel, molasses, chocolate, and warm alcohol.
Taste: Dark fruits, warm alcohol, tingly bitterness, mocha, a little tobacco, caramel, vanilla, and molasses. Tastes better as it warmed up.
Mouthfeel: Silky and creamy smooth, medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, a little bitterness, and warm alcohol.
Overall: The crazy thing is that this dark wheat wine tastes along the lines as some barleywines. The wheat does add a bit of soft mouthfeel to the beer too. Aged for 2 years in a bottle and worth the wait.
