This beer Pours a hazy reddish brown body with small white head.

Smell is extremely fruity with lots of apricot and fresh fruit notes.

Taste is thick and full bodied with a large caramel and Belgian yeast sort of flavor. Really a cool combo of English big malt barleywine and Belgian triple or light colored quad. Lots of ripe fruits, golden raisins, apricots, some apples, even has a maple syrup sort of sugar note to it. (Reading the menu I notice its brewed with brown sugar, duh!) Very easy drinking and very diseaving with such a big abv. Bitterness is in check with a firm hop flavor and a good balance against the malt. Its actually pretty bitter and as it goes on comes closer imo to an American barleywine.

Wow, what an awesome beer. Maria has really outdone herself. Big, malty, fruity and yummy. Absolutely perfect summer wheat wine.
