A - Dark brown ale with no head

S - Dark brown ale, tart, lemon, and slightly aseptic

T - Bourbon and brandy alcohol that takes over. Odd blue cheese funk. Some strong nail polish remover. Everything is just odd together.

M - The beer has a strong astringency from the alcohol. Finish is really musty

O - Overall this is just a cluster of a beer with too much going on. It is off balanced with too much alcohol and tartness that doesn't really balance at all.

On tap at The Livery.

Pours a very hazy golden color with a thin white head and no lacing. The nose brings forward a bit of grain as well as some more peanut character. Very odd. Beyond that, a bit of sweet honey and some alcohol. The flavor brings more of the honey, and it's far too sweet. Mild booze in the background. Body is too big. Low carbonation. Decent enough for a wheatwine, but still not a big fan.
