A Rittenhouse Rye barrel-aged wheatwine. Served in a cervoise.

A: Pours a burnt molasses color with a small white head.

S: Plenty of barrel character in the aroma. Vanilla, coconut, buttery rye, light raisins, whole wheat bread.

T: The taste brings some raw wheat notes, more tannic vanilla and toffee, a bit of dry oak, slight balancing hop bitterness and a bit of alcohol.

M: Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: The barrel has done this beer well.
