750ml bottle info a snifter

A: Pours hazy golden yellow with a white head that fades to a ring and leaves some lacing on the glass.

S: The nose is full of sweet wheat and vanilla along with some hops and a bit of toffee.

T: The taste follows the nose with maybe a touch more hops but the barrel is not as prevalent as I'd expect.

M: Feel is about par for the style. Medium bodied and crisp.

O: Was really looking forward to this one and while it was tasty I was expecting a bit more.

Reviewed from notes from our Town Hall tasting. 2012 vintage poured from a750ml bottle. Amber in color with a thin frothy head to it. Nice lacing to it.

The barrel flavors are pretty reserved in it. I get more of a hoppy bitterness to it with the wheat malts playing a pretty big role as well. I get some notes of apricots to it as well. It's a decent enough smelling wheat wine but the barrel aging didn't seem to add anything besides some brown sugar sweetness, which didn't seem to compliment the wheat malts all that well.

I get a little more of a oak and vanilla out of the barrel aging in the taste. Wheat malts are bold and good for the style. The finish thankfully brings out some bitter hops helping to balance it out a little. The barrel aging was disappointing in it though.

The mouthfeel was on the thinner side with moderate carbonation. Overall, it was somewhat of a disappointing beer given that I had high expectations. The barrel flavor was very light and what was there just didn't compliment the wheat malts very well. The sweetness of the bourbon and wheat malts together just didn't work all that well for me. It was a decent beer, but not an outstanding one.
